I remember conversing via email. I’m talking about personal conversation. These days, my email is made up of “notifications”.
There are constant emails from Facebook or Ebay or whoever. These sites just beg you all day long, to click and sign in! See the picture someone posted! Heed the warning! It’s all so worthless.
I don’t think it’s necessarily conscious, but most people know on some level, it’s best not to create an electronic record; sharing your personal thoughts or feelings about something. Everyone is on guard all the time.
I maintain the forum on this site. It’s a place where you can interact with people, anonymously. There is at least a chance that something non-boring can be posted.
I wonder if people realize their capable intellect will degrade if it’s not exercised. When is the last time you created something as opposed to finding something someone else created and presenting it?
A client asked me about something stupid, yesterday. Something astrological. She likes to read a lot and of course there is a lot of crap astrology out there. I told her to be careful. There are machines (AI) writing content of all kinds at this point and frankly, they don’t know shit about actually living well and being happy… nor do they care.
Can you add to this? What are your personal, creative ideas or feelings about this, which you can post here, anonymously.
Update – I wrote this about 18 months ago. Things have gotten much worse. Sign in! Sign in! Sign in! Get this app. Get this other app!
I block dozens of fake people from this site on a daily basis. I have heard, forums will be taken over by bots. You’ll have AI interacting with AI in order to influence people. A dozen year ago, when Saturn was in Virgo, I implored people to guard their mind.
DarkAquarian wrote on Mercury Opposing Uranus – Oh My: “Communication is a MAJOR proponent of our existence…”
Those are some true words right there.
And what about our creativity? Pluto will weigh on Leo. Will you channel this power or be murdered by it?
