Social media follows in the footsteps of early cyberpunk fiction, attempting to persuade us of the myth that we are nothing more than the work we do and the fiction we present the world. Reality turns out to be more mundane: in both fact and fiction, we cannot exist or interact with the world outside except with our bodies. This leads us to the final realisation, that happiness lies not in curating a flawless representation of ourselves that we can hide behind but in engaging with those we trust without pretence and learn who we truly are.

Just as resting your eyelids makes you feel sleepy, opening your eyes wide and looking upwards sends signals from the muscles around your eyes to your brain telling it to wake up, making you feel almost instantly energised. Like most behavioural techniques, it sounds laughably simple but works almost instantly like some kind of black magic.
