Do these times not till the soil to plant seeds of reassurance?
The digital disruption has unleashed the worst of human nature and created levels of illusion and delusion and detachment never before experienced.
Never have people been so compelled and even coerced to look happier.
Never have people felt so lost and alone.
A pandemic of digital detachment has left us isolated from reality and each other.
Never have we had such opportunity for connection and communication. Never have our connections and communication been so shallow and superficial.
We have created a societal sham when we need substance; we stand on shifting sand of fads and trends when we need foundations secure and solid. The fog of the superficial hides the substance. The glare of the shallow blinds us to solid reality.
