Online junkies…

We are digital junkies…forever touching our magical devices. Our digital addiction is reaching unprecedented levels. Many of us are spending most of our waking hours on our smart phones, tablets, laptops, gaming consoles, high resolution TVs, e-readers, Bluetooth speakers, headphones…forever checking emails, Facebook, tweets, Google, messenger, whatsapp, flipboard, and countless other apps, websites… is it the dawn of the age of singularity?.. even a few hours without wifi..is a deprivation of the vital oxygen which is so essential for our living…adults..children…all have been stricken by the new plague of the net…kids one year old are getting so used to touch devices…they are at home with these intuitive devices…steve jobs is the person who has launched the human race into the cyberspace..

about 100 years ago…we started the electricity addiction…now everything comes to a grinding halt without electricity…similarly the internet grid of which wifi is the last mile link has become so very important …internet is truly the next electricity..like blood with our bodies…water in the world…rivers and seas..yes truly we are children of the internet age…there is no turning back…lest we become pillars of salt like lot’s wife  as they were leaving Sodom….in any case we are going to reduced to robots like pillars of salt…

Slowly, gradually, inexorably we are being sucked into the innards of our digital futures…the obsequious chips are controlling all our movements…even when we are jogging..our iPods are monitoring our calories burnt, speed, distance, heart beat.. now wristbands monitoring all our waking and sleeping hours tracking our health to the minutest details.. every heartbeat..every breath…every morsel…every drop…every turd…next the wonder bands will be transmitting our health stats to our health records in the cloud..to our doctors… maybe robo doctors…like the robo financial advisers of Charles schwab.. In the coming age of singularity so vividly portrayed by kurzweil…micro chips will be embedded into our bodies…our brains will be duplicated..downloaded…into hard drives…cloned..


Millions of surveillance cameras are tracking every move we make…there is a watcher in the skies…big brother is here and now…we are not alone anymore…imperceptibly we are being sucked into the cyber future…morphing slowly into our robot incarnations…mutations..there is no reprieve…we are committed into a surreal cyber soulmind less future…forever detached from last vestiges of all that we knew as humanity…floating digital debris in the infinite cosmos…

Post Covid World

Covid has suddenly thrust the planet to the inflexion point. It is a final wake up call for humanity. Civilisation has been on a suicidal ...
