  7. The Fear of Being With a Smartphone
    Nomophobia — the fear of being without a smartphone — a psychological affliction amplified by the pandemic. Our reliance on smartphones has transformed them from convenient tools to lifelines for maintaining personal good-standing. This transformation has led us to a digital slavery, where our actions and behaviors are influenced by algorithms, marketers, and policy keepers. Freud's analysis of civilization's discontents reminds us of the inherent tension between individual desires and societal obligations. The integration of smartphones into every aspect of our lives has blurred the line between necessity and intrusion, amplifying concerns about the influence of technology on our lives and societies. The act of collecting data on such a massive scale during the pandemic, along with the enforcement of tracking app usage, sets a precedent that could have a cascading effect, further eroding personal autonomy and societal norms. To address these challenges, we must critically examine our social structures and design human-centric technological systems that align with human needs and values. By doing so, we can navigate the risks and forge a path towards a future where innovation serves our best interests.

  9. why coach introspection? 
    Introspection, while potentially yielding valuable self-knowledge, may also lead to self-obsession and chronic rumination. Our culture often emphasizes objectivity and causality, hindering a more open, phenomenological inquiry into ourselves. Shifting toward a "resolving" approach and embracing paradoxical ideas can offer a more constructive path to self-understanding.

  10. what are us? 
    In today's society, objective facts eclipse our subjective inner wisdom and somatic knowledge. We conform to external norms rather than self-determining our values. Knowledge is pursued compulsively without changing the methods of inquiry. To grow, we must release rigid plans and preconceptions. By embracing spontaneity and our inner genius, we can reshape notions and know ourselves intimately. This self-knowledge allows us to create our lives rather than follow others' expectations.

  21. say my name
    How do we live by the names given to us? How do we choose a name, or should I ask how does the name choose us? I use a mononym — levèlsi — and choose to write it in lowercase letters. This stylistic decision is my way of resisting the authority over personal names.
