Aren't we health conscious? Then how can this consciousness exist while unaware of the subconscious effects of television?
Comparison To Food Poisoning
Prudently, we throw away any physical food that has the slightest chance of being tainted with food poisoning. However, we don't seem to mind repeated mental food poisoning. We hungrily ingest television content as if it were a basic need. This exposes us to the ill effects of watchulism, a thought-hijacking germ that incubates rapidly in a low knowledge of self environment. We do not seek medical attention. Thus we are slowly put to sleep to reality.
Television is a very effective poison apple. In fact, the ratio of poison to apple is so one-sided, television is mostly, apple-flavored poison.
A lot of the poisonous context is mixed in with some good content. Our sense of what is helpful/harmful has been so reprogrammed to favor the germ, we can no longer distinguish the good portions of television content from the bad.
