Which blew everybody away because it was self published people want to know how did you find the time to do that well. It's because its sleeves rolled up. And I'm working very aren't spending like I. Put in and so on and so. That was part of the the other part of it was I grew up very. And I'll all the predictions. And all the people hear my voice if you got addiction in your homes. You know what looks like. And what correlated to be was. PPK fear that I seen all around now. What people who have not looked up away from their devices such as to people like zombies walking around. It it's very clearly an addiction it reminds me of an alcoholic who attached to their beer. If you try to also addiction I mean let's say to I would tell alcohol have a drinking problem. They will shut you right now well now device addiction. It was when you go up and houseful of action you understand addiction that you recognize that.

Cold I and do you village rule we've tried to from MIT and harbored and Stanford you name in the meetings to attend over there everybody is on the cell phone. But there's still only in the MIT and there's still in Stanford and there's still working at a couple. Is it addiction or is it just bought society. Has become. Well first global.

If it like alcoholism it is like a drug addiction that's what happened to be socially acceptable. It's spanned all ages. And you know what it's also people. Well a lot of predictions are legal that one year but but hear me out because I watched alcohol until one of my parents. I watched that addictive behavior transfer.
