You Me and TV
The Global addiction
What an amazing journey this is. I mean Life of course.
The way it tickles our senses and makes us grow. The many generations in which we evolve. Smell, sight, touch, as well as an ever growing awareness. Or so I thought?!
But than came TV.
Pretty soon many people in the modern western countries found themselves on the slippery hill towards TV addiction. But to be fair, this new drug took us all by surprise. Like a child with a new toy we ventured into what now can easily be called ,’the Visual revolution’.
It had followed right in and onto the Industrial revolution. It immediately set out to create a kind of parallel Universe right alongside our real actual lives. Starting out as a non threatening entertainment and educational tool in at 1st black & white images, it needed but only a few decades to become Histories most manipulative tool, ever! Neither Goebbels nor the Roman empire could have ever for-seen such a sophisticated tool of indoctrination and oppression.
Humanity set out in an endeavour that would not only propel us forward in our technological developments, it would also make us create both the necessary Industrial machinery as well as the addiction that goes along with inducing ourselves with it’s produce. In HD high definition no less. Pure and uncut.
We now have all arrived in the age of the,…….TV JUNKY!
It all began with the shows of the ,’Magic lantern’, where people gathered in troves around the first magical moving images lit up by candles. Family entertainment was invented. Family fun for all in an age wherein most people,’after days and weeks of hard labour ‘, were glad to find some small shared moments of happiness. We watched in wonder and amazement as pictures changed in front of our eyes. We laughed over the slightest joke and smiled as mesmerized little children standing in a circle of worship around the objects of our new found fascination. Later we moved the circle back a bit and brought it back to the crowd in front of the stage. And voilà the first pop-stars and actors with a fan-base had been created, just like magic!
So far, no problem. After all, we have a history of worshipping false Gods and symbols. In that sense this was nothing new. However the ,’Lanterna Magica’, was no ordinary evolution. It was the one evolution that would lead us away from reality and into the dark unexplored crevasses of our mind called subconsciousness. Humanity had just begun developing their senses and already they were being dumb-d-down by some shallow 2D imaging tricks.With us all at the beginning of our, emotional and spiritual journey, this new toy brought with it some adverse side affects no one could have predicted.
Instead of becoming a more developed species with growing & evolving actual qualities in sight, smell, communication and awareness, we laid back and put the developments of us and our children in the hands of market-minded program makers and their imaging magic-light-machines! If we only would have known than what becomes more obvious now, but hey! There it is, TV this wondrous friend of ours. Can you do without your big or little screen of luminous carbon rods? Well can you? Do you use a remote control or are you remotely controlled?
Now, to be fair; we did make some great educational productions over the last few decades. And the arrival of the Internet also probably did not add more harm to injury. What definitely does do harm are the sophisticated marketing and mind-manipulation techniques, being used onto you and your loved ones. Make no doubt, these techniques do hurt our collective future in a most harmful and long-term way. Nowadays the most sophisticated software and even certain sound-frequencies are being used to get us divided, scared and lined-up facing the same way. Like the good little slaves that we still are. Maybe now more than ever!
Most of us hardly even notice the dirty techniques being used by Disney, Hollywood, MTV and the few other ruling major media tycoons and their #News_Networks. Those news_anchor puppets really only feed you ,’the consumer’, with distractions from the true targets. Selling, selling, selling and total domination by Multi_Nationals! Keep the herd frustrated, because that’s how a dealer treats his addicts. Keep ‘m wanting, always wanting for more! And indeed we now all take our daily fix of fast-food, fast-news and fast-shopping, like the sweet fools that became the stupid silent majority.
We shout and scream over trivial matters, yet we hardly developed our thinking since the beginning of the homo-sapience. It’s a war that is being fought, now! A War that will influence the future of mankind in a most profound way. That much is sure.
So what will you let your children watch on TV and the Internet? How will you guide them into being self-made individuals with a mind of their own? How can you keep their evolving frontal cortex-es, from being reduced to less than a 5th of their potential due to shallow programming, lousy polluted food and water or a crappy educational schooling system that favours the rich? Where will they have to look for actual general #knowledge_and_education about our evolving societies?
It is a daunting task I agree! To understand what your up against would almost force you to keep your children away from all these harmful influences, but you can’t. They are here and we need to deal with the cards as they are now dealt. So the best you can do, is to stand up for the future of your children and use your consumer power to force these mentally sick corporate institutes to change their ways. Teach your children to stay critical on all that force-fed garbage that comes to them in HD high-definition with all it’s many bright shiny little lights and sounds. Teach them the value of real sound, smell, taste as well as emotions. Fuck the fake tearjerkers, happy-endings and fake macho hero moments in Films. Fuck the Industrial corporate music industry. Fuck hollywood and it’s cultural and creatively poor films. They do not do any good in the real World for real people. They only make money for a few and trouble for the most others. For every new millionaire there are a million more that suffered. The facts have already given proof of that. So do not buy their crap or vote for these socio-path industrial criminals.
Those that are not yet inundated with gadgets, TV and PC are actually better of then the Urbanites big-city dwellers, as they are being lived more than they do live! And that’s where we come to the heart of the matter:
To Live or be lived,……… that’s the question!
