The 'information diet' is real: garbage in, garbage out, and conversely! ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1260215297950310404)) - @balajis We need Continuous Dopamine Monitors In 10 years, we will look back at social media’s infinite feeds as being as detrimental for our health as sugar. Now, we’re still in the early phase, just like when doctors were prescribing sugar for energy. https://t.co/ZzJveuJWow ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1297587794471256064)) - Today, we have physiological data that shows the effect of diet on metabolism. We can see a glucose spike after a cookie or a banana. In the future, we'll also have graphs and tools showing how our body reacts to our information diet (monitoring cortisol, dopamine, and more.) https://t.co/KeIw6rpkIO ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EwXURovWUAAGi5_.jpg) ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1370749980445642764)) - Saturday. I knew @HardcoreHistory for a while but started to pay attention only recently. Dan is the most entertaining and fascinating podcaster out there. The Kings of Kings series is a masterpiece. https://t.co/KkkUgPrjHS ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E4O_8lRXoAMPSW1.jpg) ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1406178563187949570)) - Does a 7-day restriction on the use of social media improve cognitive functioning and emotional well-being? Thought-provoking and unexpected results: it doesn't. I'm sure reducing screen-time can be helpful, but it seems it's not so straightforward. https://t.co/Zh0fvUv74Q ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E4d-uKeWQAABh1n.png) ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1407234200030359554)) - "Danesi’s old teacher, Marshall McLuhan, once theorized when we changed from an oral culture to a writing culture, that led to a change in cognition and consciousness. To Danesi, emoji represent a similar step." https://t.co/3mYpKXTV0q https://t.co/6WM98erV7b ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E4jXB7ZXIAslygy.jpg) ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1407669771261210626)) - "I see science fiction as the ultimate literary genre for understanding the wildest hopes and deepest fears of society. It explores new social ideas and the possible impact of emerging technology, and is a vehicle for asking philosophical questions about consciousness." https://t.co/CB5NCcWbde ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E4pCLHcXMAA44-B.jpg) ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1408017061587013632)) - Increasingly convinced that the crypto community will merge with the biohacking community to create the first *significant* longevity movement. https://t.co/JeoldqSr42 ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1364604704236457991)) - Data and tracking alone won't work for the mainstream adoption of health optimization solutions. People need to be part of a community & talk about their metrics, habits, struggles with other people. The community needs to be at the center. Social x Health is coming. https://t.co/LPFKXAxAg7 ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E5jOnInWQAY03mo.jpg) ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E5jPBnOWEAEqaHN.png) ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1412106318660444161)) - Is solving the loneliness problem with more technology a good idea? What Robots Can—and Can't—Do for the Old and Lonely https://t.co/O8TNnSji3P ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1412033529651744768)) - Just like you need to curate your groceries list for your health, you need to curate your Twitter feed for your mental health. ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1413105630676717570)) - “Just work. That’s it. Focus on what stirs you up inside, what is beautiful and true. Work on making something good—not something that is liked. Take responsibility. The work will lead you home.” https://t.co/B2jnnMtBUU ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1413987946496151555)) - Non-Sleep Deep Rest (NSDR): A Science Supported Tool for De-Stress and Relaxation https://t.co/zt16SZebh0 ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1414650614999572484)) - From the lab to your home (and to your wrist) .@fredwilson understands perfectly how continuous health monitoring will reshape healthcare and health at large. ... and "the conditions are ripe for a reshaping of the healthcare system." https://t.co/CIxDqnd21S https://t.co/ufoADinBQn ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E6LbUZHXoAcdD5n.png) ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1414934746858201092)) - I love the concept of non-values as a startup. This example from @beondeck is worth sharing: h/t @gonsanchezs https://t.co/CK62ZNco4x https://t.co/yNHJIMXeRR ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E12BiwCWYAE4EVx.jpg) ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1395416491265298432)) - ~ New episode of The Long Game ~ This week: • What the aging field needs • Authenticity is a sham • Overlooking subtractive changes • "You don't ask, you don't get" • Familiarity is a misunderstood virtue • Preparing for a megadisaster Enjoy! https://t.co/nwG5cRE9X9 ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1393921426613276678)) - "Instead of trying to come to terms with our radical freedom, ‘authenticity’ drives us toward a rebel conformity constantly searching for the exercise routine, clothing brand or political posture that’s really ‘me’." https://t.co/z6D4QYpL2n ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1394330283827208193)) - The proof of health will be beneficial and change our perception of health. From a reactive mindset and health as a “burden” to consider only when there is a problem to a hobby/sport that people actively try to optimize. https://t.co/eNbPfrLVaA ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1393435531833380865)) - Highly recommend The Precipice by @tobyordoxford for everyone curious about existential risks. The need to become a multi-planetary species will look clear to you after that. https://t.co/yP9m44oANu ![](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E0y2XKVXEAAyWDe.jpg) ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1390687884915654659)) - "There are several reasons why it is much faster to build infrastructure in China, yet the main ones are political." https://t.co/QB8WT5k7Tt ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1390653815431573516)) - "Smart people are the best nootropic, if you can afford the leisure of it, in the sense of the Roman concept of otium, the concept of leisure that improves you. Set aside a day and have six back-to-back conversations with the smartest people." ([View Tweet](https://twitter.com/Mehdiyac/status/1388370442352799744))
