Minimalism: The Zero State

Minimalism was a repackaged version of materialism but advertised as something completely opposite. It was preaching consumers nothingness and claiming that it was the ultimate luxury. 

It had its own set of toys(expensive paperweights), rituals, practices and methods that many fell for.

Zero is a state of mind not many can come to, and those who do, cannot stay for long.

Maximalism: The Current Swing Of The Pendulum

Now that people have again started buying interior decor and other stuff, it is hard to believe how minimalism even became a fad. The empty rooms have now started getting filled not due to showiness, but out of fun, diversity and a need for change.

People have tasted minimalism and the new love for maximalism has the lessons and language learned over the years baked in, like wellness, health, virtue and sustainability.

Minimalism And Maximalism: Slow And Fast

  • Minimalism was about controlling the speed of the world, avoiding whiplash.
  • Maximalism is about filling the long void of loneliness, boredom and isolation.

The past few years most people have been interacting virtually with other people, having human experiences like dates, webinars, meetings, without any real humans present near them.

The cold, digital life needs an outlet, and maximalism is just the therapy that is needed.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
