πŸ–€πŸ€πŸ’”

Three different feelings, opinions, points of view on one of the greatest creation of human mankind.

πŸ–€ Firstly, from my point of view media has been controlling too much of our lives. Therefore, I do not like media. I mad at it. I frustrated because it is totally ambivalent. We have the opportunity to maintain and manage our relationships all over the world, which is very effective. On the other hand, it tears us apart and starts to create a bigger gap between us than the actual distance. We think and everybody thinks that we are the leaders of it, but after some point we just lost keeping track of it. We do not know anymore who is in control. Who has the main power. It might be still us, or rather: media. Thus, Media gets my black heart, as for being dark but at the same time, still have something what we/I can love about it.

🀍 Secondly, Media has been good to us. It provides various information about basically anything. We can easily spread our knowledge even when we do not want it. It can answear for any questions which might be raised. Although, it still has its ying-yang contrast as in the previous paragraph. Media usully deceive us with fake-news, false facts. It might give us information which we did not want and can cause harm in our private or social life. Therefore, Media balances itself with a white heart, which represents pureness and helpfulness.

Media has a ying-yang effect in my life, the two heart (black and white) want to represent this.

πŸ’” All in all, I would rather say I do not heart media. Or my use of media. Two years ago I was in an acting camp which has different theme every year. At that time, it was about tribes with shamans and spirits. The camp tried to create an enviroment, an overall feeling (which was by the way successfull) to experience what it could feel like back in the day when there were nothing. No phones, lights, power, media, etc. It resulted that we could focus much more on the present. And this does not necessarily mean that we talked more with each other, we of course did, but moreover, we had the time to realize where are we. What are we doing and where and how. All these questions were answered in that camp. I did not miss media at all. After the camp I was sick of using it. In conclusion, I experienced something back in that camp that changed my mind and my thoughts about media. I would love to experience this with so many other people, not just with my fellow campmates. Hopefully, one day our society will be offline. Together. Just us. In the present.
