Feedback loops are very powerful:
We discovered if you play Tetris for too long you start parsing the world into “How do I make straight lines.” It’s great if you’re playing Tetris, but maladaptive if you’re not. This is called The Tetris Effect.
Is there a way to get your mind out of these negative loops? Yes.
You must train your brain to seek out the good things in life.
So no more Tetris playing. Remember, Hell is Tetris.
