It happens more and more these days. People become…static.
They keep saying the world is alert and fast, that hundreds of gigabytes of information crosses our minds everyday, that people become batteries. Somehow, I feel that all we can be is vessels for this flow of action, dynamic and particle torrents. This, and nothing more.

How many of us wake up just burning to start a new day, full of unknown, discovery and excitement? Kids, maybe, but even they resort to burying their young and untrained minds in simplistic or numbing actions like the absolute useless school program, shallow cartoons that promote senseless violence (remember Tom & Jerry…anyone? no? How about Disney Classics?) or dwell into the attractions of modern technology and would rather play a round of Call of Duty on XBOX than building a tree house.

As for the adults, they spend their young years partying and “living the life” (a.k.a being under the influence 80% of the time) while later they struggle in a society that offers no place for the one that doesn’t fit the patterns : docile and willing to work and be lead by someone in a higher position using fear, money, religion or some other form of power.

Therefore, being a vessel, a carrier for others needs, visiting the world’s greatest museums just so they can brag about it, or simply considering that one’s purpose here is to live this life as well as possible or with fewer losses qualifies one as static.

  1. In fact people got used to be just tools for others and whenever one tries to say that something is wrong he will be reduced to silence and considered a dreamer or worse a maniac…………..It has always been like this and it will always be.

    1. It saddens me to see everyone around me walking like a zombie, undisrupted and fixed upon the tasks he/she has been given to complete.
      Also, the shallow, sad and hopeless look on everyone’s face as they realize happiness is too far away and they will have to feed upon crumbs of it that happen to fall rarely and even then, others will try to steal them.

  2. Well, sometimes maybe you need to just follow the pace since no other solutions are available for the time being. However, when the moment comes you will definitely touch a remarkable change just in a sudden … so, this might be the silence before the storm-hopefully-.
