Stream of Consciousness

Do you ever think we live in the age of information overload?  There are way too many things to think, experience, see, be, live, feel, experience, learn.  And for those of us who want to do it all, how do you cope?  Do you just cut a part of you off to focus on the here and now?

Do you ever find yourself wondering what the difference between the internet and reality is? Aren’t we pushing the boundaries so our children’s children won’t even understand the difference between Augmented Reality and what we call life?

Do you ever think people take advantage of the weak, or the perceived weakest links, in a truly, horrifically, Darwinian fashion?  Is that real progress?  Is that the way it’s supposed to be? What should we be learning from nature anyway? Or are we too busy murdering her and bastardizing her lessons to really pay attention to what matters?

Do you ever think about the modern global money making schemes-  stocks, bonds, insurance swaps, derivatives, making money off of future money.  Is that really what we should be doing?  Who decides what we are worth anyway?  Since when has science been turned to art?  Business used to be much purer and simpler.  What happened?

  1. Yes we are living in the age of information overload. That’s why single tasking, meditation, doing simpler things like exercising or living in places where electronic gadgets are not allowed are in upward trend.

    As my friend once said — In long term money doesn’t matter,as long as you have it.
