How much of your daily interaction is spent via a computer or other electronic communication device?
How much of that is with other people whom you have actually met face to face?
How much time do you spend on social networks, especially with those whom you met online?
Reality check..I mean virtual reality check.
The world around us has gone digital...everything has a website..most have an email, facebook, or other similar communication tool.
The advent of twitter gives us real time updates with no actual voice communication, just typed in letters.
We are distancing ourselves from each other, slowly but surely..
We connect via skype, and think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. We don't see the damage our modern technology is causing our species.
Even in our own homes..our children , our spouses, are there physically, but more often than not, not mentally. They are chatting through IM, playing
Facebook applications, etc.
Our reality, is no longer real.
How long before we realize most of it is gone? Is it too late already?
Did we help create this monster, or do the TPTB have us right where they want us? Keep us entertained by an alternate life, so the slight of hand is
Go online..be whomever you want. Create a new identity, new life, new friends..NEW REALITY. Do everything, be everything you haven't accomplished in
Wanna attract a member of the opposite sex? Go to a dating site..fake a profile and voila'!
Always wanted to kick some ass like a superhero? Be an online keyboard warrior. Nobody will really know you live in mom's basement.
A duplicate or triplicate life is soo easy. After all..who online will you really ever meet face to face?
THAT is a reality check.
We are not digital..
Our brains are being trained to only be stimulated by that which IS digital.
We are disconnecting, unplugging, from that which is REAL.
Do like your momma told you to do..go outside and play.
