Hey yall, im back so soon because I’ve had so much to say that’s been biulding up. Plus, I have a feeling this information is very crucial at this present moment. Every post is in divine timing.
What I want to talk about today is my observation of disconnection. One thing I’ve continously noticed throughout the duration of this pandemic is the desocialization. I’m not saying they are purposly trying to disconnect us.. ooooor maybe I am. Regardless, whether the agenda is by accident or by force, we as a society are being physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually disconnected from eachother: we’re socially distancing. We are distancing from our most basic human need; connection. There are people afriad to see and hug their family memebers, afriad to speak or even look at others in public, afriad to stand next to someone, afraid to simply breathe; anoher basic human need. When we become less of our human selves we become more like robots…
Robots may seem like something in a movie, some sort of fantasy, or a reality only possible much further in the future (on some i Robot type shit). But, in this reality, robots are real. Our technology is just a system of robots, every Tell-A-Vison, every phone, every apple watch, earbuds, tablets, remotes, etc are small functioning robots. Robots are typically controlled by a central opperator and seek to control other things.. or people. Or, maybe those who opperate the robots seek to control the things controlled by the robots. The more we become like these devices, using logic only, over controlling, lacking connection and humanity, the more easily we are controlled by these devices.
Kids are now using ipads, laptops, and headphones to learn things meant to be understood in a hands on enviornment. Before the pandemic technology was introduced to education and it was actually a nice boost. But, now technology is beginning to control our education. Students, kindergarten to college, are struggling; zoom classes are ruining education. Its easier to memorize rather than absorb. Not to mention a lot of students cant afford fancy technology. It’s also very confusing to me how this country finds a way to keep national football and basketball leagues playing for our entertainment. But, can’t seem to find a better solution for education. Anywho, growing up constantly using tech creates an addiction of these devices early on. It creates this idea that we need these things to survive and these devices are our lives. We’ll depend on them to remind us of things, to socialize with people, to get education, to tell us what direction to go, what to buy, what to eat, to make money, to have fun, and soon depend on these devices to create our reality. I’m not saying tech is a complelty bad thing by any means. What Im pionting you towards is the Yin and Yang of tech. Yes, it connects us to people all over the world, it boost creativity, it’s convient, it’s innovative, and makes our entire lives easier.
But, we must ask ourselves is this enough to satisfy the basic human need of connection. Can you survive on only being able to Facetime your loved ones? Is this real or false connection?? Is this a real reality or a false one?
Was this a plan for the CIA, advertisers, politicians, and large corporations to take control over the masses and begin controlling not only what we google, but what we see on our social timelines, eating suggestions, pop up ads, and how we connect/relate to eachother? Maybe. Maybe, they knew before the pandemic that this was some sort of plan and they took advantage of it. Maybe, its another one of the angles they plan to hit. Maybe, the world of technology is the real matrix; a simulation we enter to live in a made up world with made up standards, expectations, ideas, connections, and made up people. Maybe, the advance in technology is a plan to suck us all back into the matrix to the point where we cant escape. But, what do I know.
My advice to you is to take this social distancing agenda and turn it into an opportunity to connect with people on a deeper level. We can’t see people faces anymore so learn to use eye contact, learn to read body language, and learn to listen. Play the techology game; meet people online and worldwide, promote your shit, and make money. But, learn to step away from the false sense of reality that is created to control your mind and keep it trapped in a fake dimension where you can be completely controlled by those controlling it. Play the game Kings and Queens; dont let the game play you.
