That was quite impressive. It wasn't super preachy and didn't smack of "Bookface is the end of social interaction and empty screen lives blah blah blah." I think a lot of people have an idea of what it's talking about, but it was presented in a neat way.

It actually explains one of the reasons I like UG better than Reddit. Apart from me only having a Reddit account since May, I've found that I feel that my posts seem to "matter" more here than Reddit.

agreed.

though we matter here more, the people here who matter, matter less than the rest.

That's funny, seeing as there's no universally accepted definition of what constitutes 'soft' science, therefore critiques of soft sciences are problematic in the way that they condemn in 'soft' sciences'.

we are all alone, in the same way that we are all one and represent a collective consciousness.

Are you suggesting that we telepathically commune with some superconsciousness?

I like the pit.

In my darkest hours of loneliness, it was there.

And, well, made me feel alive when I was mega depressed.

But, to honest, I miss the times when we were kids and would go out and just be kids. None of this technology crap.

Being out of touch with technology is good.

I went on holiday the other week, with only my phone to text people on, no internet, only had a laptop for evening single player gaming sessions, and I felt far less alone. than I am when I've got access to the internet.

Also...I went to the pub the other day and everyone was just sitting on their smartphones except me and I was like wtf.

I guess it's kinda hard to hold conversations with a girl when her train of thought doesn't go beyond talking about Katie Price's biography.

EDIT: Next time it happens I'm gonna send them a text and ask if I'm boring them, cuz then I'll leave.

4 of us, met up, went to the pub together. At one point in the night 3 of them were busy on their smartphones and I sat there desperately bored trying to make them talk.

As an introvert most of that doesn't really apply to me. I've noticed it in other people though, and do think people should start realizing what they are doing to themselves.

Yay for more people trying to find a line somewhere to distinguish between 'real social interaction' and 'simulated social interaction'.

This video reminds me of a few people an the way they look at life. People don't all experience the same things in life. This video is one big assumption. It isn't a very good representation of what happens in the average life. Or at least I don't do that...

Which is why I hate places like that. Not because people are on their phones but because if you aren't talking to someone you have no choice but to be bored out of your mind. Go to the park or out doors with friends where your mind can wander and enjoy other aspects of life rather than being forced to sit and talk to people. Verbal interaction might be something needed in a social situation, but location location location. Bars and pubs suck. They're limiting physically and mentally. How the **** an I sposed to have a good time when all I can hear is shit music, an all I can see is desperation?

Because you can't go to a park in the evening because you look like a peadophile and you can't go to the park in the day because everyone has work.

Basically this.


Though somehow, I see groups of people together and yet they all eventually end up texting other people on their phones.

You can't go hang out in a park, in winter, in the UK, in the dark, because it would be madness.

loneliness arrives when seeking external verification
when one distinguishes himself as his ego, acknowledging that society is but the group ego, the constituents of which are fabrications, integration becomes the process of binding nothing to nothing

there is no wealth to be found within this nothing
we've collected shit tonnes of nothing and feel empty

however, when one accepts that inside us there exists an infinite pit, we transcend the need for external verification as there no longer exists a frame of reference to which one can ascribe any sense of relativity

we're alone without even ourselves as company
we're together with everything

It's interesting how it points out that phone and online conversations are misrepresentations of our real selves. I've thought about that a lot for the past few years, how easy it is to talk to new people and portray yourself as someone you aren't because you're able to plan what you say and can edit your conversation like the video said. It's easy to take for granted what you read in a text or post, but you don't get to know the actual person, you just get to know what/how they would ideally like you to know them. I think this leads to a lot of failing relationships. Not just boyfriend/girlfriend business but even friendships, because people don't actually know about each other.

Thinking about this kind of stuff is why I've gotten rid of Facebook and twitter and try to use my phone as a phone and not for carrying out text conversations all day.
