Whatever one occupies his mind with is the lens through which one sees the World. One sees more of what one needs to protect the selfie from & less of other things. The selfie survival mechanism helps spread the new age meme salad.
Such is the ecology of the mind
unless one efforts a bit to raise one's consciousness out of the purely effortless absorption of M$M, TV, Internet, Twitter, social media dross level reality & actual humans one knows.
I liken consciousness to an Iceberg - or something immersed in water - it can float at it's natural level & only 10% of what is there will show up without effort. OTOH, with some effort one can go below the surface of the water & explore & sometimes something amazing will reward one's efforts.
