# Beware Of Sequentiality
To explain this, let's say you bought a TV. Then if you are a good
boy, you will subscribe Netflix. If not, you will build a personal
server and install Jellyfin. In that case, you will buy an additio
nal HDD in the future. And in both cases, you will spend more time
on watching TV. By that, you might find some type of "contents" (I
hate this word) are interesting. So you would get that type of pro
duct in the future. And that will lead to future consumptions. (I
don't know I could explain well because I don't watch TV anyway)
I call this phenomenon "sequential consooming". But this sequentia
lity is everywhere, not just consooming. And it is not necessarily
bad.
For example, why I started to study math is because I once deeply
fell into skepticism. In my middle school days, I was quite mental
ly unhealthy and can't believe almost everything. So I started to
prove every statement on my math textbook. That was the only possi
ble way to believe something. But you know what? The textbook cont
ained V-E+F=2 (Euler's Formula). In other words, you can't prove i
t without some graph theory (I think this is the easiest way) or e
ven algebraic topology. I was batshit crazy so I started to study
analysis, topology, &c. to prove it. While studying these subjects
, I forgot the original purpose. That was partially because I alre
ady graduated middle school far before. Also I became a bit mental
ly healthy so I was not that skeptical anymore.
Anyway, when I studied algebraic topology, I realized that I compl
eted the original purpose. It was just a corollary of simplicial h
omology. Actually it was (Euler characteristic) = 2-2g. Why V,F ar
e (+) and E is (-) is that V,F are even dimensional and E is odd d
imensional. A polyhedra is 2-dimensional so we only get 0,1,2 as t
he dimensions (Vertex, Edge, Face). Also a polyhedra has no hole (
genus 0).
But it didn't matter anymore. The original purpose induced a seque
ntiality, and that sequentiality completely changed my life. The s
equentiality alone gave me graduate level math knowledge.
However, whether it is good or bad, sequentiality affects your lif
e far bigger than non-sequentiality. Because [Non-sequential] ~= o
ne but [Sequential] ~= many. So you should be really careful of it
.
But you can detect sequentiality beforehand if you try. It is not
even a hard thing. For example, you can easily know that making a
website on neocities will induce a sequentiality. We just did not
intentionally practice on this.
Therefore we should intentionally practice on this at least from n
ow on. Because there will be so many days until we die. And more t
he days, stronger the effects. We should control these from early
on.
