Social Media Depression

 

ToxicRainbowsCvrSqIt’s interestng that a ‘new’ study conducted by psychologists at the University of Pennsylvania determined that use of social media sites like (and particularly) Facebook  causes …wait for it… depression.   No surprise there, but I say this is ‘interesting’ only because studies like this seem to have been coming out for years making these claiims.  I didn’t have to resort to another one to know first hand that social media is a big player in producing self doubt and loneliness, all I ever needed to do was get online and see it for myself.

The grasping, the vying for attention, the compulsive posting and commenting all screamed, “Look at me! Look at me!”.  It doesn’t take a degree in psychology to understand what is going on and to see that people are suffering and appear more alienated each day.

In my book, Toxic Rainbows, I talk quite about the detrimental effects of social media and it’s influence on our behavior. In my opinion, it is one of the first things many of us need to overcome before we can start making improvements in our lives.

My request to you as that you THINK hard about how you use social media and figure out if it’s providing you with a sense of fulfillment and joy when you log on and/or off. Contemplating your use is only the start and I encourage you to read my book and delve deeper. You owe it to yourself.

The Digital Generation’s Answer to Avoiding Problems

METROPOLISMATRIX

How far do you think people will go to avoid their problems?

Transhumanism is the ultimate in ‘convenience’. It aims to make life easier, better and more efficient. Convincing the public of anything that works against their nature and  that’s detrimental to their existence or well-being has often been presented in opposite terms in order to gain trust.

Awareness to the fact that inversion is a hallmark of the Matrix, makes it easier to see that transhumanism is invasive and actually an enemy of human nature and biology. Inversion of reality aside, it used to puzzle me as to why and how so many people embraced transhumanist concepts so carelessly and thoughtlessly, accepting them without argument as if it were natural evolution or true nature.

Our brains are becoming atrophied because of services that provide us with answers offered to us by robotic voices. Commercials teach us to treat them as friends and family, blurring the line for those who, as children, considered Teddy Ruxpin a confidant and support system. One commercial goes a step further by enforcing the stupidity of humans who use the product and even demonstrates that it will refuse certain things that are asked of it, in this case, country music. We are being conditioned to feel that these services are an improvement over the human mind which is an abomination of thought and can never be true.

We use search engines to give us the answers that appeal to their algorithms all the while, our world view dwindles and we forget what it’s like to think and discover on our own. This behavior is plain to see, but it occurred to me that these devices and human-like anamatronics are not here to assist us, but to destroy our connectivity to one another. They prey on our weaknesses and fears of failure and rejection.

Our interpersonal relationships are crumbling and our modes of communication fail us. We respond to life from a weakened emotional state, our relationships falter and we distance ourselves further from eachother, connecting only through emoji-filled texts and we more easily embrace the unreality of robotics and transhumanism.

This advancement in technology encourages human failure. It allows us to go elsewhere for connectivity when we do not want to do the work involved in nurturing real relationships. It becomes the panacea to our natural anxieties, destroying human emotion in the process of ‘comforting’ us.

Who needs real people when robot sex brothels are becoming all the rage? The Barbie Doll as an ideal has led to sex dolls which begs the question, how can humans compete with something that won’t ask how you’re feeling? We will no longer have to confront our real emotions and grow spiritually. All we need is a synthetic android and a touch-screen.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that people will do almost anything to avoid dealing with their problems. Looking through that lens it is easy to see how a troubled, digital generation will accept transhumanism and live-in sex dolls if only to avoid having to face their own human responsibilities in order to continue fabricating lives deeply woven into the Matrix.

Be aware. Save your children. Exit the Matrix.

The core of my work is in awakening people to the programming and conditioning that enfeebles our minds and makes us operate purely through our subconscious and triggered emotions.  Contact me for more information.
