Perhaps this is also the reason that Silicon Valley tech tycoons like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs teach their children to stay away from products made by their own company.

In an era of information storms becoming increasingly overloaded, the ability to screen information plays a more important role than mere reception. Therefore, we need to learn how to "cut off the electricity" in a timely manner, giving ourselves an appropriate space and time to pause the use of electronic technology devices and the Internet.

Kevin Kelly is a founding editor of Wired magazine and publisher of the Whole Earth Review, which is extremely well known in the field of photography and digital. He came to be one of the "fathers of the Internet world", also the most enthusiastic spokesman for new science and technology.

Surprisingly, Kevin Kelly's home doesn't have a TV. He also has no habit of using smartphones. Occasionally, he would pick up his luggage and set foot in remote villages in Asia and stay there for a few months, without carrying computers and technology. For him, this is the journey to regain roots in the real world.

Kevin Kelly himself once said that: "I have to try to stay away from modern technology now, I can easily remember who I am".

Self-blackout allows us enough time to reflect on the state of our relationships between the real world and the virtual world. We will also realize whether we really need to associate life with technology or not, when we need it, how long we need it, in what areas ...
Thereby, we find the balance between the two lives.


The father of "The Black Swan" (translation: "Black Swan") is Nassim Nicholas Taleb, a Lebanese-American essayist, scholar and risk analyst, once wrote: Dynamic, each phenomenon phenomena will have corresponding changes, either received or lost. The weak are the ones who will become bewildered, afraid when faced with fluctuations, unable to adapt to it, leading to losses. In contrast, the strong not only easily integrate and adapt, but they also proactively anticipate all changes, taking advantage of when others are in chaos to profit for themselves.

Therefore, constantly growing, constantly learning, people can withstand the constant change of the times. Facing a generation of technology that changes at a dizzying pace, people themselves must receive more knowledge and energy to master it.

The ancients have the phrase "The central letter of self-possession, the golden conch, the letter of self-righteousness like pearls", can be understood as "In the book, there is the honor of richness and wealth, in the book itself contains beauties like jade". The more we understand, the more our eyes and our minds will change. The natural life will become richer, the xinxing will become more and more experienced.

Another way to get rid of the "addiction" of the virtual world is to rebuild your life. The main reason that makes smart technology devices and the Internet become an integral part of people 's bored reality, loneliness and dissatisfaction. Their current life is not fun enough compared to the rich, rich internet world.

Meanwhile, the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once said: "Only when we are alone, we can be completely ourselves, completely free."

Know that loneliness is the beginning of a fulfilling life. If we do not know how to live with ourselves, we will not know how to live in harmony with others. If we know how to put the focus of life on ourselves, no matter how we face the world, we can harmonize and adapt easily.


A few studies have been conducted by PhD students Thuy-vy T. Nguyen, professors Richard M. Ryan and Edward L. Deci, from the University of Rochester. It aims to assess the psychological change of spending time alone without using electronic gadgets and talking to others. The research results are published in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. They pointed out that: People can actually be more serene and peaceful when enjoying the loneliness when alone.

Specifically, with a group of people sitting alone in a comfortable place, away from smart technology gadgets. They do not do anything for 15 minutes will feel anxiety, anger, intense emotional excitement in their hearts are somewhat reduced. However, some of them develop boredom and loneliness.

With another group of people, they also sat alone for 15 minutes, did not use their phones or computers, but read an interesting newspaper. Positive experiences or thoughts about positive things make them feel calm, less angry or worried, nor lonely or sad without losing any excited or enthusiastic emotions.

According to another survey from Business Insider, psychologists have shown that regular use of mobile devices can increase the risk of depression in children by 27%. Children who use more than 3 hours a day are also more likely to commit suicide. It can be seen that technology also contributes to promoting the instability of each person's emotions.

Perhaps that's also the reason that Silicon Valley tech tycoons like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs teach their children to stay away from the products they make. According to the billionaire once head of Microsoft, mobile phones will be "banned" from appearing on the table with everyone in the family, as well as children only used when they were 14 years old.

Properly applied technology will make our lives more modern, more comfortable, easier to get more of what we want. But if it is addictive, losing oneself in the virtual world, each person needs to reconsider his methods of use.
