I really appreciate this actor, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Every time I encounter him he seems to put a lot of work into himself and being a good, healthy, balanced human.
Here he gives a TED talk on how people who “paying” more attention leads to greater happiness than craving attention. He touches on many related topics such as social media addiction, and also the concept of “flow.”
I’m posting this video here because it alludes to special things about the energy of attention; things that do not seem to be understood or cognizant in the public or private mind.
- I do think people “feed” on and take attention energy
- I think people can also “give” attention energy
- I think these attention energies can have different intonations and vibrations
- And when these energies are digested by humans, I think their effect is much more complicated and impactful than we know.
