I'm not sure television has any simple effects; it might turn out that it makes certain people more passive but not others, increases certain forms of intelligence (possibly on the expence of other forms) and that it makes certain people have less inhibitions against certain forms of violence. The point is, this is a very complex phenomenon, well worth studying.

But from a more transhuman point of view, how can we make use of it?
