We are all guilty of submitting to distraction, it’s the unavoidable reality of falling under the bus of avoidance. It’s a reality that’s swallowing time, stripping society of any cohesive equilibrium and punching gaping holes of confusion in all forms of daily life.
Forget tipping points, balance, cycles, interdependence, bell curves, pie charts, trends. Distraction isn’t some grand plan thought up and implemented by the ubiquitous ‘they and them’. Machiavellian and malevolent forces are very real indeed, capable of creating hellish happenings. It’s their actions that add to the reality pile making distraction a more palatable reality.
It’s very easy to fall into the theory that distraction is there to mask cover and obliterate reality. It’s there because reality has changed to be immediately accessible and ever more present. It’s this overwhelming bombardment that gives distraction its addictive appeal.
Distraction isn’t fake news and neither is climate change or suffering in Syria. Distraction isn’t false and neither is poverty and pain. Distraction isn’t unreal and neither is loss and loneliness.
Distraction is an attempt to run away from life’s uploaded endless reality, an overloaded beast spawning baby versions of evolving realities that are growing up way too fast for us to handle and control.
Distraction is gaining traction, gathering momentum and pulling us all along with it, into the latest evolution of turbo charged realities.
Observing whats real is becoming increasingly difficult. This site is my view, my perception and my commentary on what I believe to be real, from my own unique position.
