Everyone Is an Insomniac Who Can’t Find Their Way
The demise of our internal clocks is another drawback of handy hand-held devices. The blue light keeps us wide awake no matter how exhausted we are. Being in an environment with artificial light, even if it is only your lock screen, throws off our circadian rhythm dramatically. After a night, or years, of far less sleep than is healthy, we take our sleep-deprived selves out into the greater world where we find our internal compasses have also been affected.
We collectively suffer from an inability to understand directionality and depend heavily on GPS technology. We can and will follow GPS almost anywhere, even when it is obviously going in the wrong direction. As with our memories, we tend to trust technology more than ourselves.
