Ja, I feel that. They're definitely leaning into it and addressing the problem in a self-serving way that won't solve it. I definitely see ////////them\\\\\\\\ trying to keep the question of which medication on people's minds as opposed to whether or not one needs medication at all. That said, I think that what they're leaning into is genuine.

There's a paradox in medicinal marketing where the least effective treatments get the most promotion. When there's reliable science behind a drug, that research speaks for itself and doctors prescribe it when necessary without as much prompting. Obviously the route of promotion via scientific credibility can be p-hacked into which is why peer review is important and all that bidness.

By the way, advertising of prescription medicines is a specific Americam thing, I think. That's really disturbing.
And only since the 90s or early 00s. It wasn't always as stupid.

That’s a pretty generous take. Maybe they’re thinking about the patient or maybe they’re thinking about a new beach house. I’ll theorize that with ailments on the periphery the beach house starts to loom larger.

If they're seeing the patient then they're already getting helped out with the beach house. Direct marketing to doctors muddies the waters a lot though.

If they’re seeing the patient every three months for five minute consultations and one minute to write new scripts they’re probably more interested in hurricane paths than their more ethical peers.

Sideways Music

Quote:
Another option for the Spacetime Theorist is to accept that normal music has intrinsic aesthetic value, and to maintain that sideways music does, too. The proponent of The Spacetime Thesis who takes this approach will explain our reaction to hearing sideways music (which is to perceive it as a very short-lived cacophony of sound rather than as beautiful music) by claiming that, as a result of how human consciousness works, we are just not very good at perceiving the aesthetic value of sideways music.9 I for one do not find this response at all plausible, but this may well be simply an area where intuitions differ. In any case, I want to register that if this is the best response to my argument that is available to the Spacetime Theorist, then we have again uncovered a surprising and substantive commitment (concerning both the nature of aesthetic value and the limits of human perception) of those who endorse The Spacetime Thesis.1
