What we’ve lost, we’ll never get back.

Allow this to sink in.

  1. Mass dissociation; from each other and from reality. It’s pleasing at first, a relief from overwhelming problems and stress, but then people start believing their fantasy world is real. They believe themselves to be the false personas they create and we’re left with a huge epidemic of DID and delusion. I hope I exaggerate a bit but virtual fantasy is a powerful addicting drug.

  2. There is a small sense of irony here. I can remember visiting grandma many times only to have the television turned on for the various soap operas she loved to watch. Having a smaller medium available that fits in the palm of your hand is merely a larger continuation of what was started when instead of using our brains for conversation we began to depend on social media for entertainment purposes. We went from musing or thinking to being “a-mused” or no thinking.

  3. I agree Pam and Mark. We musn’t forget that television is the medium that started it all.

    It was always disturbing to me how television is used in convelescent homes to keep the folks occupied.
    Not too long ago I spent over six years visiting a nursing home on a regular basis. I was always amazed (saddened, really) that the TV was their most important companion. I don’t recall ever entering one of their rooms and them having to put their book down to have a conversation. I usually had to yell over the TV to communicate with them.

    And even while a church service was being conducted on the premises, the overwhelming majority were not interested (even in the last chapter of their lives), electing to remain in their rooms watching the looped news broadcasts on 24 hour news stations or whatever other programs helped distract them and kept them believeing that whatever was coming out of the TV was more important than what was being preached from the Bible.

    Such a shame.


  4. Three of my favorite bloggers all discussing on one page, how marvelous.

    I’m inclined with each of you, but Mark hit the nail on the head. Our ability to think reasonably, philosophically, and (most important) lovingly, is slipping away at an alarming pace. The digestion of amusement and entertainment has become a constant while the nobler, greater values and virtues of life have become twisted and morbid, perverted and corrupted. OH, but shouldn’t men say “Good is evil, and evil is good.” Such is the signs of the times we dwell in, but let us not cease to shine our lights, though many will dim as the days grow darker.

    Be blessed, each of you, and continue well in your work and deeds. Shalom.
