LIVE CHAT With Damon Horowitz: When have you realized that you were wrong about what you once thought was right? June 8, 2011, 5-6PM EDT
- When I dared to question my belief system and look for an answer, I realized that I was wrong about what I once thought was right. My beliefs changed entirely. But once I questioned my new beliefs, I thought I was wrong about them too. I learned new stuff and starting to think differently once again. Finally, I understood that as long as I question myself, I will keep changing my answers, and that's the beautify of self-searching and curiosity.

According to self-identity theory, a person is a combination of an individual-self and a collective-self. The entire western world is moving towards an individualization of self. Young adults move out of their parents home, not because of lack of space but a desire to be on his/her own. There is an increasing number of pets as company instead of another human being. Maintainence of collective-self of persons remained a duty of the government and larger organizations. These were examples in the material world. Whereas, in your argument, the virtual world of information is isolating individuals in their own buble. First, the development of the internet is following the pattern of the western development. Second, even theoretically, one individual cannot be virtually present in many communities. For instance, if I got newsfeed of Afghanistan/Pakistan, Egypt, Japan Nuclear Crisis, NASA discoveries, Euro football championship, NBA matches, Cricket matches of Australia and West Indies, Russian spy involvment in Georgia, Chinese growth, etc., what could I make out of them? I don't want to be locked in a room, but I don't want to be thrown in the space too.
