Once you see the spattered blood packs, the breakaway tables, the pulled punches, everything about pro-wrestling looks different.
The same can be said about a magician revealing her tricks.
The magic is gone because we realize it isn’t real, it is an entertainment.
We have to acknowledge the fact that social media, doom scrolling and the 24-hour breaking news cycle, is fake. It is here to give us dopamine hit after hit, and to keep us on the hook.
