We've all done it. You start looking at a short clip - maybe only a few seconds long - and end up clicking on related content after related content for hours and hours on end. It's all just far toooooooo interesting!
Boss: "What time do you call this?!"

Employee: "Sorry - I got stuck in an epic Princess Diana related YouTube Spiral and this morning just got away from me."

Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life ā€“ sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.
Iā€™m not going to try to get a better job so I can afford to start a family, Iā€™m just lying flat.

The spiral you descend into, much like Alice when she was in Wonderland, where you keep falling and have no sense of time. It starts with watching a video of a cat that your friend sent you, clicking a related clip of a baby laughing, to ultimately watching an R rated clip. You then come to your senses and realise you've just wasted 2 hours of your life watching pointless videos and vow never to do that again.
Friend: "What did you get up to today?"

Me: "I started off watching a cat video and then feel into a Youtube Spiral and wasted so many hours watching so many useless videos. I'm never going to fall into a Youtube Spiral again".

Friend: "Did you see the video of the cat playing the keyboard?"

Me: "No. Let me look it up now."
