But it takes twenty-four hours, on foot, to reach the cliff. Heartbroken and suicidal, he is yet riding high on the adventurous journey. On his way, Prem meets the old man who lives at the top of it.

One-liner has a character designated Mr. Zen who is the master of the Zen techniques and answers your questions face to face. There is another character designated Mr. Genius who has all materialistic possessions. However, he lacks compassion and inner spiritual uplifting. Mr. Genius discusses everyday issues with Mr. Zen. If not face-to-face, you can at least find the answers as recorded in One-liners, a short concise transcription of inspirational excerpts from his teachings. From diverse topics such as impermanence of the world, enlightenment, and inspirational nuggets of immortal wisdoms, Mr. Zen always adverts to the idea of one-liners, recognition that our original nature is our true nature. With one-liners, one can dedicate to devout teachings, spiritual uplifting, and with the thought of gaining some timeless inspirations.
Conceptualizing and measuring human anxiety on the Internet
Since the 1990’s, the Internet has played a central role in our daily lives. The Internet is an integral part of our personal, business, family, research, enter- tainment, academic and social life. However, there are social implications in using the Internet that are dependent on categories such as gender, age, eth- nicity and cultural attributes. This social aspect can play a detrimental role in the expression of human anxiety on the Internet. An anxiety is a complex phenomenon that requires further elaboration. Thus, the aim of this thesis is to investigate human anxiety, or specifically, whether Internet anxiety can be conceptualized and measured. This thesis utilizes literature, qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, and a triangulation validation approach to conceptualize and measure the Internet anxiety phenomenon.
In particular, the aim is to explore anxiety levels of Internet participants to develop and validate an Internet anxiety scale based on earlier research on Internet anxiety. The results of the dissertation present a two phase study. In Phase I, a smaller set of studies were conducted with a limited sample size. In Phase II, the research topic was investigated using 385 participants. Based on a number of studies or experiments, the state-of-the-art discovered in this thesis is creation, design, and validation of two scales, the Self-Assessment Scale (SAS) and a Modified Internet Anxiety Scale (MIAS) for measuring users’ anxieties on the Internet.
The result of this dissertation is a conceptualization and measurement of various types of Internet anxiety and measurement of affective feelings of users on the Internet. As a proof-of-concept of measuring Internet anxiety, this thesis describes the author’s implementation of three sets of tools: MyAnxiety, introduc- ing Internet anxieties types; Intelligentia, for collecting Internet anxieties types; and MyIAControl tool, implemented as a browser plug-in, for measuring affective feelings of users on the Internet. Conclusions drawn from the results show that these empirically validated scales and tools might be useful for researchers and practitioners in understanding and measuring the Internet anxiety phenomenon further.
