The AISDL Team is happy to inform the research community that the “near-suicide phenomenon” (NS) paper passed the milestone of 400 thousand reads on July 28, 2023. The day was one and a half months after the study reached the 300-thousand-read milestone on June 15, 2023. The previous dates are April 7 (100K) and May 1 (200K).
We acknowledge that well read of the NS paper has contributed to the wide dissemination of the mindsponge theory and the BMF analytics [2-3]. This fact is a result of consistently applying the two principles of cost minimization and transparency maximization for production and reproduction [4-5].

Reaching the 400-thousand-read milestone also means the NS paper is on the way to its next half-a-million-read landmark. The next 0.5 million milestone represents a staggering amount of interest from the global community. It will mark halfway to the divine figure its authors have always wished for: A million.
