Time for a reality check

VirtualThe word escape is a fickle and deceitful concept, much like Iago in Shakespeare’s play Othello, who plots and manipulates by trapping others in a tangled web of lies and playing on their weaknesses. The first image that comes to mind when thinking of the word escape is usually the structure of a massive and heavily guarded prison, where mean, rugged crooks and gangsters pay their debt to society. The second image that comes to mind is that of personal avoidance, even flight, from something we fear or dread dealing with. Both times, the word escape brings us to consider elements exterior to us. Yet we all try to break free within, on a daily basis, and no hooligans nor specific trembling matters at hand are to blame. We instinctively attempt to escape our own lives.The long for evasion is such that we’ve heedlessly established levels, according to the desired degree of immersed state.

The least hypnotic status is the “passive escape”, reached when watching a popcorn movie. The next level is the “active escape”, attained with intense daydreaming. The last and most effective mesmerizing state is the “passively active escape”, aka “virtual reality”.

A divine digital era

A divine digital eraIt’s too late to backtrack now. We’re in too deep. We have officially thwarted the laws of nature and defied the Gods. We are condemned to carry the weight of our stilted visionary outlook on life.

That being said, defying the Gods has led both the Titans and us, mere mortals, to a glorious victory. The man-fabricated digital era has revolutionized our primal state into a god-like status. We know all, see all, do all, anytime, anywhere.

To chat or not to chat? That is the question…

To chat or not to chatSince the dawn of time, mankind has sought ways to better communicate, no matter the challenges at hand. He has grunted, mimed, talked, used body language, sign language, paralanguage; he has scribbled, sketched, written, typed, texted and tweeted. As the Shakespearian voice fades away and is replaced by a not-yet identifiable spoken language,  the written word has taken an unforeseeable spin. The NICT (New Information and Communication Technologies) have made it possible for us to speak, instantly, with a trained professional, through typing or texting, to get information on a desired product or service. Click-to-chat has revolutionized our shopping experience with immediate personal assistance. However, most of us regress to our primitive state when faced with a new high-tech product or service. We stare at it, slowly slide forward, gently tap it before rushing back to our observation post. This article exposes the state-of-the-art creature so you can make an informed decision as: “To chat or not to chat?”.
