detox as detox
relax (disconnect/unplug from the success and failure games)
curiosity is natural.
knowledge deemed as opportunity
now binds us.
the web allows access to anything.
self-construction is natural.
most need detox to get back to what matters.
nclb = absolutely
achievement gap = misnomer
perhaps a temporary tech-facilitated nudge/jolt to get us back to us.. in a less painful/stressful/harmful/incubated way…
so say we found a problem 8 billion people could resonate with. today. a problem deep enough so that the solution of it would perpetuate its own ongoing energy to solving it and keeping it solved.
and say that problem begs most of us take time to rid ourselves of the toxins that created it, while we re\learn a more natural way of being. one that wouldn’t require future compulsion/coercion/detox.. as we would become the daily self-generating/iterating sustainability/energy.
[from wikipedia on detox linked below]:
Additionally, it can refer to the period of withdrawal during which an organism returns to homeostasis after long-term use of an addictive substance.
ie: like this long-term use of an addictive substance:
that can be anything and everything we’ve used to fill the 1\ hole/need of attachment (human connection, being known by someone, invited to exist):
which only perpetuated the 2\ hole/need of our authenticity (being true to ourselves, eu\daimon\ia):
say we can now use tech as our medicine/placebo to help us back out – toward a global systemic change. simply put – of people waking up, in order to solve (and not keep creating) all the other problems.

I THINK WE’RE WASTING THE CHANCE OF A LIFETIME.
We fail to notice because we’re busy keeping busy. We fail to dream because dreaming implies that we have to take a risk to realize our dream. We fail to connect because we might get rejected. And we fail to do because we haven’t noticed, we haven’t dreamed, and we haven’t connected.

Detoxification (detox for short) is the physiological or medicinal removal of toxic substances from a living organism, including, but not limited to, the human body, which is mainly carried out by the liver. Additionally, it can refer to the period of withdrawal during which an organism returns to homeostasis after long-term use of an addictive substance. In medicine, detoxification can be achieved by decontamination of poison ingestion and the use of antidotes as well as techniques such as dialysis and (in a limited number of cases) chelation therapy.
Many alternative medicine practitioners promote various types of detoxification such as detoxification diets. Scientists have described these as a “waste of time and money”. Sense About Science, a UK-based charitable trust determined that most such dietary “detox” claims lack any supporting evidence.
[a few years ago – i started working on an addition to wikipedia.. as perhaps a universal alternative to detox. also – because it was one of the words so many had an issue with us using.. i thought having it in wikipedia might help with that. anyway – i wasn’t sure what i was doing (in adding to wikipedia), so i never hit publish.]
