Default I can't think

Try to do something right now on your own. No PC, no TV, no iPod, no work. Nothing else but you, your brain and the outside.

Does it get really boring? To the point of turning back again to the screens and the headphones?

Well, it's the usual, you see; in a world of easy entertainment where there are machines like this one everywhere, shooting your brain down with information you never requested and keep it busy for you. You don't really have to do much to get there, apart from pushing a button or typing what you're interested in.

And it doesn't get any better when we stop staring at them; since people are used to let the others bring the food for their brains. Being sociable for example stands for going to a pub and get drunk while arguing on the last football match, meeting the hawt chicks, speaking of whatever the TV showed this day or last week or commenting a film. Fun stuff means buying things you perhaps needn't but are so awesome for the commercials you watched.

It's a constant distraction, it fills your mind of ideas from others. It's white noise in your head.

It makes you unable to think by yourself.

I can't say what will come out of your mind if you did so, but I can tell what does when you're in front of the TV: just what they show; with playing videogames, you'll think on how to upgrade it, mod it or get to the next level. And so forth.

You are what you believe in. If all your filling is what others tell you to think or buy, then you may have body, you may have mind -but it won't be your life.

You have a strange, serious, and ironic problem with technology.

personally I don't have a problem doing that, since this is the only thing I've ever been a nerd with....the past few months I've been on the internets more than I have in the past 14 years...
