To answer the original question from my own view, is that people vary on knowing how to look around.
Some look around in self protection, which can be very useful.
Some look for curiosity.
Some have funny vision and try not to trip, or non perfect limbs, and moving and seeing is work.
Some were taken by their parents or aunts or friends to look at the nature around them.
Some try to get a clue, what are all those people doing?
Some have despair, a vision of no hope.
I've a cheesy old mobile phone which I keep paying for at low rate in case I/we need it.
I think of the phone engagement by zillions that is going on as a phase. Either towards clustered zombies or aggravated people who want space.
