My friend recently said these days he feels like he woke up in a separate reality. We’ll talk about why we all feel this way in Separate Realities-Bob Davis Podcast 820.
In addition my friend said he feels like he doesn’t know his friends anymore. He has to be careful with everything he says. It’s all too easy to provoke or ‘trigger’ people into highly emotional reactions.
In Separate Realities-Bob Davis Podcast 820 I talk about why we feel this way. Especially relevant is a twenty-four seven media machine. Present on all different platforms, all the time.
People We Would Never Know On Social Media
Moreover we are confronted with the emotions of those we might not have thought about at all, were it not for social media.
Political Media Matrix
In contrast it isn’t the pictures of our neighbors car or kids that’s causing this experience of living in separate realities. It’s what the political and media sphere has done with digital media technology.
As a result of this matrix of lies and half truths we are more confused and emotionally triggered than ever before.
Slaves To A Web Of Lies
Consequently we do not realize we have become slaves to politicians and their web of lies. The media is a willing servant to them.
Your Feelings Aren’t Wrong
In conclusion it’s not my role to tell people how to live or to talk about the same thing every day. If you feel like you’re living in a separate reality from say, four or five, or ten years ago, you are not wrong.
The question is what we’re going to do about it.
