Information cancellation

Beginning last night until now, we are experiencing downpour. It's another gloomy and rainy day for us here brought about by the storm Neneng.

We just finished breakfast and I am having my first cup of coffee and I feel pumped to write here before laziness overpowers me later on. I am writing as I listen to the cadence of wind and rain on the roofs and houses outside.

When it rains this long, it saturates everything causing erosions and flooding. We don't have a storm signal but it feels like at least storm signal no. 2. However, that is how nature works. The farther you are from the eye, the more saturated it gets.

I was reading a post earlier online about how information saturation is happening right now. The effect of it was we tend to cancel these information.

Just like when algorithms online would tend to pester you with ads and links about a certain product you have just researched. Say you have searched for a beauty product, then it will suggest to you everything about that product and you keep seeing posts or ads or links about that product. It is enticing at first but you grow tired of it that you tend to ignore that product later on.

After watching a video clip online, the suggested videos would be videos by the same content creator or other videos related to that. If I keep skipping the next video, then it will suggest me otherwise.

While ignoring can work in stuff like that, I think other information should not be ignored just like the basic motivational and inspirational videos, like those that really give useful information.

We all have different niche or interests or topics that we are well versed about or that we are comfortable writing about. We try to give new information to try to make it interesting hopefully.

But how about the topics that we all know in general? When we read about them, what do we do with it? How does it affect us? We read about those day in, day out not only here in read but in other platforms and online.

Do we grow tired of it that our brain would rather ignore it?

Or do we focus on one thing and keep building on that ignoring the rest of the information because we think it does not apply to us anymore?

We keep pushing others to do their best, to achieve, to succeed - all about self. How about your emotional skills? We are all about intellectual we tend to ignore feelings anymore.

I guess what I'm trying to say is to balance the information that you consume. You have to choice what you want to ignore or not but make sure that those you keep are beneficial not just to you but to everyone else.

The lead image was taken before publishing this post. That is how it looks outside right now - foggy and wet.

The first line of this song fits this weather.

That's understandable. Because we are tired of checking sometimes we tend to just go with the flow.

I agree there a balance should be kept which information to be consumed. However, Google Ads and YouTube Ads are shown as per our interest and previous history that we searched, watched, viewed and seen

I know sometimes I like to block out the outside world. This really comes into play during elections. You simply can't trust any politician no matter what side you fall on. There is no other profession where they drag thier opponent in the dirt more is there? 🤣 Asides from that information has to be analyzed if you decide to use it.

Oh yes. We recently had a presidential election and you can see families, friends, relationships destroyed because of difference in opinions/parties/candidates. Such toxic times!

This information is today's reality. Also one have to be very careful... There could be a lot of misleading information out there which appears genuine

Happy Sunday morning! You're right and nowadays information is very confused even algorithms sometimes offer us weird selections or outcomes right? But also many information is being strongly censored... many people don't believe anymore the official information that we know depends on rich corporations. We have to keep in mind they inform us about what they want us to know, not what we need really to know.

You are right about that. They release information just so they want us to think that they are doing their work or something to appease us and to shut us up but we should be more discerning about these information that we consume.

I have up to 98+ items in my cart that I ha e the intention of ordering, but most of them are just the same stuff. I never knew the word was information saturation though, stuff is real. That sort of thing can make a person binge watch too, and at the end of the day getting more information than he can process.

It is addicting to watch one more video or one more episode. I'm guilty of it too :D

We are owner of our will and allow thing to adopt which we feel good. No one can't impose on us. Yes , we should be balanced in acceptance and assumptions.

Hello kuya Lee. Malakas ata bagyo kasi kahit sa inyo na walang signal, e parang ganon pa rin. Stay safe.

And the lack of emotional skills? Shoot! Parang ganun na nga me. Hehe. Kaya, yung sa fb if may mga lumalabas na something ayoko, kiclick ko talaga agad yung 'don't see this post again' and tend to follow good and inspirational things nalang.

You will get a lot of information, Ads and videos pop up from every corner. You can decide what you will consume and what you will ignore.

I get a vibe of nature while reading your post. You represented rain and sort of other things in a nice way.

It is also pouring hard right now as of writing this. It is hard to distinguish fake or genuine info these days. Peeps are getting better in convincing infos to the mass. Kaya ingat ingat din ako sa mga info na ipapasok k osa sekf ko.

Good morning, Lee!
