Ding, Ding, Ding! The fun begins… for countless hours a day we stare into the tiny screens that fit in our pockets, feeding our neurological pathways with information from all angles.
We love the excitement of clickbait and news captions, it’s like a 24/7 crave. If anything it’s better than crack, because we have unlimited access to it at no cost! Seems too good to be true right?! And behind the scenes, giants control the stage and make money off of users like a true drug dealer, only the legal kind. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with it because everybody wins in the end! Or do they…
We have serious problem in today’s digital world, that being “digital lust”. A lust more intense than sex, that drains us everyday. It’s both good and bad, but increasingly more damaging than ever. Toddlers are able to use an iPad before learning how to walk, and 25% of millennials lack social skills. This is both unexpectable and scary. Humanity might be transforming into its next cycle of evolution, though we must not give up our own reality, for the computerized version of it.
I’m not saying that we should avoid social media or get rid of our phones and all adopt an Amish lifestyle. I’m saying we must be aware of our temptations. Don’t forget the reality we live in, in exchange for the virtual infomania that clogs our brain.
Go out in the real world and experience life through your own eyes, not through a screen. You’ll be surprised and amazed of how wonderful it can be.
