A person should consume more of something when its marginal. There are several reasons for this. 1) When we consume something less or less often, it becomes more likely that we don’t remember what it was like and therefore more likely that we will pass it on to someone else. 2) Our brains are more likely to remember something we have consumed if it’s something that isn’t particularly memorable.
In a way, that is one way to approach the issue of marginal consumption. We all know that we should consume more of something when its marginal. It is not always a bad thing to consume less, but it is also not always a good thing to consume more.
We should consume more of something when it is marginal. For example, if a movie is only available on Netflix, then we should consume more of the movie. If it is only available on Amazon, then we should consume more of the movie. If it is only available on iTunes, then we should consume more of the movie. If it was only available on a store, then we should consume more of the movie. The list goes on.
That’s basically what the American Psychological Association’s “Marginalia” is about. It’s a list of everything that is on TV, all of the books that are published, and all of the magazines that are published. When you see this, you might think, “Oh, that’s great!” and then proceed to consume more of the book, the magazine, the TV show, etc.
The marginalia is how many people we consume from. The more people consume, the more marginalia we have. Our marginalia can be quite high, so if we consume a lot of people, we can be in a position where we have more to consume than we can possibly consume. If we consume a small amount of people, we have a lot more to consume than we can possibly consume. The point is, to consume more of something when its marginal.
In the case of the book, the marginalia on each book is a book in itself, so if you consume the books, you’re consuming the books. If you consume a magazine, we all read our magazines, so we have the magazines. If you consume a movie, TV show, or movie, we all watch the movies, so we have the movies. If we consume a DVD/BluRay/CD, we all buy the DVDs, so we have the DVDs.
In a way, it’s sort of like saying you should consume more beer when its a marginal beer. In a way, to consume more of something, you have to be aware that the marginalia on that something are actually on the side of consuming more of something, so it is better to consume the things that we can buy at the checkout counter, so to say.
