Media only sees the mouse running across the floor. It never sees the floor or anything else in the room. It is not interested in context, just the mouse that threatens the order of the room. Whatever Media puts its camera on becomes the foreground that everyone sees. It has value merely because media selects it to be seen. If media doesn’t see it, it doesn’t exist.
Social media is a fish tank where if you are show the slightest weakness the other fish will pick you to death. The viewer on Social Media takes refuge in the flock, and from the safety of the flock will attack— or defend— anyone who is pulled from the herd by the sheep dog we call News. Daily, a new sheep is selected by the dog, either by choice or accident, for the shearing of the sheep’s protective skin and the devouring of its exposed flesh. Social Media loves a crucifixion.
I’m not faulting Social Media, but we need to understand its laws. The Law of the Fish.
I recommend everyone get cataracts so they can be removed. It’s like enlightenment. You don’t know you are already enlightened until they are removed and you see with your original eyes, and for a few days it is like HD TV, then when the contrast with the cloud fades, enlightenment is just everyday mind. Or it’s like a new kitchen. At first it is so wonderful and you show it off to everyone, then, as the glow wears off, it is once again just your everyday kitchen.
