J. D. Salinger wrote once: one of the few things left in the world, aside from the world itself, that sadden me every day is an awareness that… Looking down on Earth, the phenomenon called the Overview Effect shifts astronauts’ perspective, causes intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world and urge to do something about it. Being constantly informed about everything that’s happening in the world make people worry either about things they can’t change or nothing but their own wellbeing. Only 50 grams, the estimated weight of the internet, of the information and thoughts, is enough to cause one’s helplessness.
