You follow, our problem today is with social networks and this huge amount of information “online” is that we fall into the trap of knowledge. Today, instead of reading a book of 300 pages, we go to its summary, which makes no more than half a page, and instead of reading lectures by researchers, we look at a paragraph about someone Social media celebrities talk about the same topic in 5 minutes.
And it goes on: Here your subconscious will convince you that you have received knowledge, but have in fact fallen into the trap of knowledge and the illusion of knowledge; Because, in fact, you only knew the vanguard, here we are lazy and lazy in acquiring knowledge. Also, the full-time writing period is short and the full-time writer does not exist in our Arab world.
