Taking inspiration from some “highly academic” reference…this is in my opinion the best image of social networking…
Beside the fact that i know that i created it and i’m seriously understanding that i’m hooked to it, My profile has is own life and says things i may not know…
My mother calls me and tells me that she showed the pics of me bathing some weeks ago with a furry hat to her office friends and they found it super funny…Some issues are coming out of this situation…
Well first of all, why my mother is in my friendlist? Check above..
Why do i have to give an explanation of something that was real online but that it may have not been for her as i probably was going to tell her?
And Why was i bathing anyway in Rotterdam in January?
Is Facebook the equivalent to the ’90s experience of flickering through channels compulsively on the TV but with a 1984 style broadcasted people’s life channels?
If the famous tree that falls in the forest alone would have a profile for sure everybody would know that he did actually fall…
P.s. As i post this blog on facebook she will probably soon ask me why i wouldn’t want to tell her what i did…Meta level mother problems..
Two things has to be said that clarify the rebirth of my online voice.
When your life becomes only doing, it quite sucks.
When lost in routine doing becomes being and the continuos amount of sequential events take over the perception of the time passing. Thinking is closely related to a goal, the continuous and far goal of becoming and achieving, making each single moment an “after something” and a “before something else”. Free thinking becomes another work, that sometimes goes under the list of all those “well, fuck it”.
My father told me some months ago ” at the end you can say what you want, you can go around it, but your work IS your life”. Weird feeling when you get to realize it.
English gives us already a nice hint of this situation…asking “how are you doing?”..as i said Doing is Being.
But you can also be without doing anything, When you stop, what happens? who are you doing?
I’m open to understand this soon.
Another important thing is that i won’t quote anymore important people that i don’t know.
This means that quoting is a nice way to say what you don’t want to say and sounds cool.
Quotes are normally out of context and well i prefer to say things myself or rather quote my baker as he has more understanding the context i’m living in rather then some random book person.
If you disagree i kindly don’t care.
