My first thought is what sort of material is being viewed on the net by the “excessive” users? Are they reading, thinking, and debating ideas, or doing something passive, like watching cat videos?

“Are they reading, thinking, and debating ideas, or doing something passive, like watching cat videos?”

Maybe reliving their youth?

Using the internet as you age leads to project ideas offline. Cooking projects, home projects, second careers, new hobbies, specialized occupations etc…retraining, driver safety courses and more…

I am sure there are people who do nothing with the internet. I have done most of the above several times over. Learning new things as we age wards off dementia. That is not my goal. I have things I want to accomplish.
