Kierkegaard (1854), "With the daguerreotype everyone will be able to have their portrait taken- formerly it was only the prominent; and at the same time everything is being done to make us all look exactly the same-so that we shall only need one portrait."
The name of the game is deflect don't reflect.
There is a subconscious awareness of our shallow lives, our obsessions to be distracted from the daily grind we all share in.
If we were to actually look objectively at ourselves we would be appalled at how we have managed to give away our rights to a few as the many suffer under an allegiance to corporate greed that is infinite.
Images firmly plant in us past moments that have led to this moment of truth. Images fragment our ability to reason through our desires and wants. They summarize a whole when we are actually many voices and thoughts. Images condition us to accept rather than change.
States that control use images to support their function. What is there function in a democracy? To use symbols of the good life, this good flag as a means of exploiting ones recognition of past moments of truth. But these truths have been altered into controlling thoughts which demand us to accept these wonderful images of past moments as the real truth of future moments. The difference being the past is our albatross and the future is our prison if we don't break free from the planned stereotypes of nationalism now pervasive in our eroding freedoms on conscious individuality.
Concrete awareness of where we have been is an internal dialogue that you have with yourself not an image post on social media showing only a facade of character not your truth.
Images remembered are recurrent patterns of behavior that we become. A motor skill learnd for your survival. Images create memories that don't belong to you once you have opened yourself to the wide world of your future path. These images are surface reflections of your needy ego wanting to be accepted.
We structure our memories from images of daily necessity. These images surround us and we react accordingly. We can easily hide behind these image facades of shallow unfocused rightfulness.
We hope we are seen as a picture with instantaneous appeal, with many likes. Not ourselves in relationships to another human being but on a screen that doesn't connect you with a face to face interaction but with an anonymous personality and it creates a distance between people unaware of the limits we now place on ourselves in interaction with other human beings.
Fearfully we wait for moments to express ourselves in meek ways behind letters strung together to impose on a cyber creation your hope of being noticed and accepted.
We seem to see our lives as unnecessary when it comes to immersing ourselves in the values of nature, the immediacy of physical sensations while interacting with a live person.
We are cementing ourselves in lives of unnecessary delusions that distract us with unnecessary technology that has the illusion of experience but it is ethereal motions of past replication of experience set up to stroke egos and entertain the shallow needs and postpone what needs to be acted on right in front of you.
Corporate media makes it sound like you have the freedom of choice. It is only the choices they give you.
The independent voice is an old myth, your freedom comes by being limited in what you believe and what you trust and what you eventually post.
An independent voice is not one constrained by habit and narrowing cliches that are reflected back to us from social media's purpose of overwhelming the senses where by most of the information you receive is useless in living a productive life.
Social media is redundancy. It sets up the conditions for your ability to perform. It sets up intent through word structures.
You are given access by the powers that be, allowed to enter their world and in this wanting we are forced to play by someone elses rules and our life behavior is controlled by the need to be seen.
We are becoming self advertisements for the social corporate media, giving our inner thoughts a blessing from on high that leads to more exposures of your inner being. A taking away not an adding to.
We must escape the abundance of physical pressure to move beyond our bodies limits. A new religion is being born, the religion of me, myself and I. The new trinity of greed.
We now advertise god as a product to be sold and used as an income source from people that want desperately to believe in something outside our limited universe.
Social media refines the authority of the masses into segments, fragments of ideas that don't give an explanation as to why we should be here on this planet but an excuse for billions of ideas to surface on a social media site with no relevance to our existing natures only a post to get collateral ads to sell products for the minds want of acceptance.
We put our heart out there to be exposed for someone else's gratification. Our acceptance begins to snow ball as we become more excessive in posting our thoughts or someone else's thoughts and we know our limited influence is nothing but a con game to get likes.
When it is our home life that is really everything. We are caught up in the exposing of our inner world to greedy ad men that can direct selective ads for our healing even if we are unaware of those created demands and don't need them. We are losing the cohesion of family life. The need for privacy and contemplation rather than the exploding minutiae of useless details being regurgitated billions of time each day.
Our personal lives are being destroyed and replaced by a collective mind that hides under infinite details of distractions and imposes its will slowly and surely through the generations until the final homogenized populace is here to stay.
This acceptance of miner words to express your inner moments is unacceptable if you want to live your life as you perceive it. Don't doubt yourself but become your inner vision or your uniqueness will be lost forever never to be repeated.
