"Space-time companion" is just one of the new terms that appeared in China's strict epidemic prevention. Some Chinese media also summarized the seemingly scientific and rational terms such as single gene negative, four early four episodes, five one grid, ten first time and so on. Seemingly scientific and rational means are actually forging a "human iron cage"
We probably started from elementary popular database school learning to write essays, and we know that scientific rationality is often a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it enriches our material life, and on the other hand, it also brings us spiritual emptiness.

But only whether the means to achieve the purpose is optimal, while value rationality is concerned with whether the purpose has or not. Meaning, does it make people satisfied? Our modern society has always been deeply influenced by instrumental rationality. Our three technological revolutions and bureaucracy are all products of instrumental rationality. Its most notable feature is that it is impersonal, and everyone is regarded as a part of a machine.
