… on… you are irrelevant….

In the age of ubiquitous and addictive click-bait.   Technopoly rules.  Online, you are a drop of water in a sea of alternatives.  You are invisible.

“Technopoly eliminates alternatives to itself

in precisely the way Aldous Huxley

outlined in BRAVE NEW WORLD,

he argued in his 1993 book on the topic.

‘It does not make them illegal.

It does not make them immoral.

It does not even make them unpopular.

It makes them invisible and therefore irrelevant.’ “

– Neil Postman

… on… isness….

I just came across a note I had written to myself that read “Stop taking what you call “life” so seriously!!!” I find that I need these reminders to bring me back to what’s real.

The bottom is a place where we can start to separate reality, from our man-made dramas that only exist in our head. When we start to see clearly, we begin to laugh instead of lament. We can enjoy this short journey of life, instead of asking “Why?” or” What do I do now?” or “Is there even a point?” The questions fade, as we no longer need answers because we are only engaged in what “is”.

Anatomies of Pain #6

Again, natural light. I like the suitcase on the bench. after the aquarium closed this place was used for a time by the Cleveland police department to train police dogs. No doubt sniffing out cocaine hidden in suitcases was on the training agenda. The file cabinets on the left were filled with police files.

“And those who were seen dancing
were thought to be insane
by those who could not hear the music.”
