Alone and lonely; fear of intimacy and embracing frequencey, how the internet is changing the way we think and have intimacy.
The generation X, we enjoy our state of frequency ( as in regularity) so we remain at it ( (in the tube, twitter, face book, texting, chat rooms and the Youtubification of our self to ourselves) but there remains the fear of intimacy on a subconscious level, which in so many ways create an active subterfuge and mask ourselves, this is all about the way we live today although we create all thing yet we fear ourselves.
The X generation is one of the most educated generations yet we have saturated the single dating chat rooms. Alone and lonely; fear of intimacy and embracing frequency. We seem to like, and actually fall in love with the medium more then we do of each other.
We say computers don't think but they are changed the way we think and how we relate to each other on so many levels. Especially on the matter of relationship, there re more people on the dating sights than in Parks, coffee shops and Restaurants in our growing cities today.
As a Social Worker that is what I see and hear as I travel around the world, an increase of fear to connect on a so call street level (people have become afraid of other people), however, people would freely talk to others only when they become strangers themselves or wear a mask, on the internet they call it “user name” in chat rooms, in the real world its like getting a bit of alcohol, thus increase in the rate of confidence in oneself.
The lack of physical touch and social network might increase high risk to depression and addiction, which might lead to the intake of anti depressants with detrimental sigh effects. There is a direct correlation between depression and lack of physical social network. We say that computers don’t think but they change the way we think.
