Holden Caufield was right. Life is filled with ‘phoniness’. The Matrix kind of nailed it…we live one thing while not knowing it’s a reality we have been given to live out (real or not).
I walk around and I have to laugh, concrete and asphalt litter the ground…buildings that tower like mountains…windows to the left and to the right…everything seems to contain steel these days…it’s all a facade. It’s a pseudo reality pushed on us by generation of generation seeking the innovation of the earth to it’s commands. We make the planet what we want and the media sells us this lie (day in – day out).
All one needs to see is a normal house fly trapped in a window sile to know this is bologna. Or maybe a moose wandering into your backyard? How about ants under your kitchen sink? Something is awry…and it’s not the insects or animal kingdom.
We’re doing everything we possibly can to seperate ourselves from nature and we need to wake-up and realize we have taken too many steps in the wrong direction…we’re eliminating the wild-life and natural surroundings of the land so we can have ‘convenience’. The problem is, we’re not going to wake-up, unlike Neo, we have been too conditioned to what we have been born into. There will be no choice of what pill you can take (red or blue) – unless it’s prescription.
I don’t think we realize how much of a lie we have been born into to be perfectly honest. It’s normal to want the new car, big house, perfect yard, paved streets, pre-packaged food, and designer clothes…watch an ad now and then to see this is what they are ‘selling’. Life is always grand on television.
Problem is, what we want it is also going to be our demise. The new car is a constant pollutant (times that by a million others). The big house is wasting too much energy. The perfect yard is killing nature with pesticides/herbicides. Paved streets are killing the soil we could use to grow food/tree’s/grass…and actually have natural surroundings. Pre packaged food is unhumanely slaughtered on a regular basis so we can have some chicken with that rice. Designer clothes promote economic slavery and poor living conditions in other countries, so we can be more like Mike! This is only 1/4 of our problem in all reality…we are basically un-natural beings!
So a toast to the end of the earth as we have never known it.
