I get bored pretty quick on the social networks.I decided long ago that facebook was a complainers paradise and a nursery school for children.I took my talents to Google.I’ve been on google for a few months now and at first I enjoyed it but just like facebook in a split second the entire platform dumbed itself down. The 5th graders come out in full force and the entire platform degenerates into something that becomes painful for me to observe. I must get away. My mind begins to get sucked into the mediocre…into the ignorant and useless. I must get away and reclaim my mental superiority and dignity. Anytime there is a collective mass mind platform it can only degenerate.It may not degenerate for google as far as business is concerned but it definitly degenerates for the real thinking person. The real thinking person will begin to notice that things begin to repeat and they will begin to notice silliness and emptiness. The thinker begins to realize the emptiness of technology and he begins to understand that a 5th grader with a gun is still a 5th grader and that’s precisely what makes it painful to observe.The collective consciousness of the masses is painful at times for a thinking person. In many ways social networks are like a democracy and like a democracy mediocrity is king. I see people posting a picture of a piece of chocolate candy and get 85 likes or 234 plusses and then you see a post where the president pushes for indefinite detention of all citizens without a trial and there is 2 or 3 likes or plusses and ….maybe …maybe 1 share? If you go on a social networking site with intelligence you are pretty much in the wrong place.Intelligence disrupts the feel good mentality of the mediocre. Intelligence is a severe threat to the 5th grade masses illusory self esteem.On social networks if you post things of an intellectual nature the masses will soon start posting things saying “stay away from negative people”. At first the psychology of the masses is amusing but after a while it becomes a pain.In my country everything is dumb and dumber.Science,medicine,education,music and on and on.Social networks in my opinion reveal the mediocrity of nations.They reveal the ignorance of citizens and the apathy of slaves.Social networks are the saving grace of the great pretenders.Very few individuals are thinking on social networks.Most are posting things that others say and write etc and they ignorantly post these things thinking that this illusory technique of passing information is a form of intelligence. You do not have to agree with what I’m saying. I’m speaking for myself when I say that a superior intellect cannot remain on social networks for long periods of time or he/she will be sucked into the matrix of mediocrity and blissful ignorance. Conversation with robots soon become redundant and boring. So far I still recognize Google to have more “mature and intelligent” members than Facebook and I do see the positive for using social networks to advertise ones business but I can also see that as time goes on Google will devolve as well because it is not the platforms that makes the people stupid.Most of them are stupid before they get to a social networking site.A blog is the saving grace for a thinking person.Whenever I reach the point where it is painful to go to facebook or google I turn to my blog.The Throne.Thank you God. Long Live The King!
Today I got on Facebook and I sat there strolling through the posts with my jaw dropped…. mouth wide open. All I could think was… this is like the Jerry Springer show. I just sat there in stunned silence realizing that I was in a kind of kindergarten for adults. A complainers paradise and a dreamers heaven. A play school… one of those places where you drop your kids off when you go to work. You know where they have all kinds of “activities” to keep the children occupied? Yeah adults have been occupying wall street and the children have been occupied via Facebook and google etc. I’m not saying that it is all bad…. I’m just saying what it is. Psychologically these social networks provide a large dose of escapism via a uniformly agreed upon illusion of doing nothing but pretending it is something. Surely the passing of information is doing something but fish in an aquarium can pass information all day but they are never getting out of that aquarium? It is sufficient for sheeple to talk about it…(obviously some kind of psychological release)… to complain about the boss then get up bright and early every day for more of the same. Social networks organize the collective consciousness into an even more defined and “localized” consciousness… like a central computer. I think it will be extremely difficult for anyone to accomplish anything of lasting value if they remain on social networks. I could almost say that most of those who spend all day on social networks are those who will gather only superficial nutrients and the endless day by day, minute by minute infecting of each other with all kinds of mental diseases and spiritual uncleanliness. So… in closing I will say this : Birds of a feather flock together. Social networks are a double edged sword given to psychotic children. They make the under achiever equal with the over achiever… the worthy equal with the unworthy and this is unnatural. Could this be a cleverly orchestrated and manipulated genocide of the human intellect? Freedom has an aspect to it that requires one to break away from the flock… to break away from the collective consciousness. If everyone was evolved then the social networks and the collective consciousness would truly be grand but everyone is not evolved. So…. if social networks give even more structure and cohesiveness to the collective consciousness then that is extremely dangerous because the collective consciousness is a savage beast. I may post periodically due to boredom etc but I am now detached. Moving into 2012. Moving into reality. Long live The King.
Sitting here listening to some of my music…letting the lyrics fall into place in my head while I simultaneously ponder society and social networks.The like button on Facebook should be the symbol for our day and times. You must forgive me if I seem to get too deep…that is my nature. When a man becomes a man he puts away childish things. Now the like button is ingenious no doubt about it. It allows people to express a feeling about something. It can show support or belief in or I’m sure a variety of sentiments…all positive of course. It also allows for polling,testing,understanding of the individual doing the clicking. Not so positive if the observations are done by a government or social scientists for example. Still the reason it should be the symbol of our day and times is because of its psychology. There is something odd about clicking a like button on a screen. On a social network the like button creates all kinds of insanity and personality disorders. It creates illusions and delusions. It like tv moves the being into a space where they are absent from… being. Likes become value oriented causing schizophrenia, paranoia and competition. Likes become a reward for particular lines of thought etc..:.like Pavlovs dogs.All the people that think this way line up over here…”like” is the symbol of being displaced from reality.It is the symbol for how easily sheeple are herded and it is the “revealer” of their true intelligence. Like is the symbol of reality tv stars,American idol,who wants to be a millionaire etc. It is the symbol of a culture that lives in insanity and a culture that is extremely comfortable with insanity. The narcotic of choice in this insane asylum is the like button. So…be careful…use the like button wisely.
I have been working on my own “Facebook”. A place where you can create your own groups,upload photos,music,videos,receive notifications etc…invite friends…bascically everything that you can do on facebook and then some. I like to control my own destiny so if fb ever gets funky..I’ll have my own page in place.It will take a couple of weeks to finish it but you can check it out here: The Land of Funk
