This will be a weird thing, so warnings as this will be long and stuff. (I also made a point at first and then completely abandoned it. Forgive me, I'm tired)
Over the past few days, I've found myself thinking about things that usually don’t occupy my thoughts, and it’s been, not troubling me, but putting me on edge, so I guess the purpose of this is to let those thoughts out, so perhaps I can be at ease.
It’s regarding life and how it is seen in the eyes of society, how it should be lived and how hard its inescapable grasp is, barricading with its ideals that, even though they may not be your originally, it forces upon us with blaring images and words. It’s not that I object, because I can’t say I do, the various advertisements help economy and generally help the quality of life. But it’s the idea that only their lifestyle exists and that it is the best one, even when that might actually not be the case. Having a job, going to university, making enough money to support yourself, having kids, getting married, are all things pressed upon us from birth, all things that we should strive toward; but what if that’s just not what we want? At the moment, it’s coming to a time where I’ll really have to decide what to do with my life, and it’s dawning on me how people can waste away, as Les Brown said “Quietly and safely tiptoeing to an early grave”. Humans have created a paradise, but what’s left to do? We've given ourselves petty goals. Every animal upon this earth requires mental stimulation, and by using our brains to the best of our abilities, we have taken away what it can be used for. We’re lacking in this mental stimulation, and it can be seen in many relationships across the planet, people are deteriorating and we have only ourselves to blame. Blame also lies within the internet. Given it’s gifts, the common assumption would be that it would benefit our lives, help us discover new things, but it has done the complete opposite. People are social animals. That’s a fact, proven in every sense, and, under scientific terms, cannot be argued against. We’re meant to hunt in teams, we have clear signs that we are made to communicate and have social interactions. But the internet has made so many people barricade themselves into rooms instead of doing what is natural, we convince ourselves that we dislike human company, and the lack of exposure to other humans is completely ruining us. Humans cannot function without other humans. We’re left feeling drained, angry, tired, sad, and that’s completely natural. Being with other humans means that we can (theoretically, in terms of cave man stuffs) let our guard down; trust them as they can us. But the internet has meant that many people are lacking in talking to other people, we’re not learning how to communicate and we’re not defining our roles in society. It’s destroying the human race from the inside out.
That went on a completely mad tangent, was not the intended plot of my ramble in the first place, but it deserves to be hear none the less. In fact I'm not entirely sure where that was ever supposed to go, I did have a goal at first, a point to convey, but trust me to go on a wild tangent and completely drop ideas. Heh.
Whatever, I hope you guys have a brilliant day.
I’ll see you some other time.
