*) for this is, what --according to my observations-- cellfonanism [here, at least] is used for in >90% (maybe >99%) -- and this is also the very opposite of what (virtually)all gurus/sages/wise_people/saints/elders/psychotherapists/&c of all times and all cultures (I cannot think of one single exception) have been telling people ( ~"focus_on/live_in the here-and-now!")
