Social Media Is an Action Word.

Social Media Is an Action Word.

You have probably heard of at least one of the following social media platforms:

LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Bumble, Twitch, Tumblr, Snapchat, WordPress, Tinder, YouTube, Twitter.

I don’t know if you noticed, but they all have a word of action in the title:

Twitter is the sound a bird makes when talking to other birds,

Twitch is a short sudden jerk,

Snap is the act of capturing the moment,

Chat is the act of talking,

TikTok is the sound of a moving clock,

Insta is informal for instant, and

Gram is old school for you got mail.

They all have this in common, because socialization requires action. To communicate one’s interest a bird “tweets”, to share one’s interest a person “snaps” a moment they experienced, and shares it with the ones they love. Therefore, every one of these media platforms are told we use as social animals to connect with one another.

Twitch is a sudden movement, or jerk, that is required when playing games with other gamers, and is likely a reason why it is called that. The ability to have quick reaction times when playing games gives one an advantage against another.

TikTok, pronounced Tick Tock in English, is the sound of a clock and if you are familiar with the platform you know that the recording limit is a few seconds tops. Lastly, Instagram is the instantaneous transference of a message, and in this case the message is visual.

I don’t really like Facebook, so I will not be talking about it, but feel free to add your take on it’s relevance in the comment section below.

These platforms are appealing, because they give us the ability to express our interests with other people, who’s opinions matter to us, in turn reaffirms our belief system and gives us validation increase the feel good chemicals in our brains; the one’s that give us pleasure.

Since these social media platforms give us pleasure we associate them with that feel good chemical, oxytocin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and we seek it often in attempt to retrieve the same feeling we had initially when we first used the platform. Unfortunately, with all addictions this is a craving that can never be completely fulfilled.

Therefore, social media platforms have grown tremendously as a source of revenue for companies, and as a source of connection between one another, giving us a collective conscious creating culture, order, and a sense of meaning to our sometimes chaotic existence.

An Improv Piece, Pills, and No Cheeseburgers.

An Improv Piece, Pills, and No Cheeseburgers.

# Mar 6, 2019 at 8:49 PM I dont understand some of this but I allow it to run.

The world is filled with life and the free write that I have is known as the thought process that allows you to continue to write and not stop as long as a thought goes through the brain the medulla oblongata will allow you to come up with creative primal instinctive revelations like the Bible has in its final chapter.

This technique that I am using was learned in a book I read a long time ago. I dont remember the title but it has a guy who directed and acted in theatre for a long time and talks about masks and hypnotism and improvisation for the theatre. The point is to create a stream of thought on paper to create content with the point of preventing writers block but the world does not cope with depression without external reality.

Pills are consumed on a daily basis because it connects our internal with the external and the external solidity really is just atoms that came in and out of our internal but triggers the realization that we our in existence with others because we are the others. What we dont do is what we do do, and yes I talk about poo poo. Waste is not doing anything and Presence is giving everything.

The trick though is that the solidity of the ingestion is only the realization of what is already inside of us. The pills don’t add to the chemicals that combust inside but simply give us the awareness of the chemicals that combust inside. We have all and we should know. Know, no. Know, Yes. Knowledge is power and power is energy and energy is light and light is life.

Filters can be limiting but they help with order because what you do not see is a stream, a wave, a continuous perplexity of the unknown clashing and crashing into infinite realities until the conscious decides to make it into existence. Thats when it becomes solid, a state of matter, an external bit of existence that follows the four dimensional apparatus that is our reality of existence. What of an ant? Does an ant have a conscience.

Does an ant decide what it believes to be right and wrong, or does it simply follow the electromagnetic fields that revolve through the atmosphere. Does it not have a free will? How about us? Do we have free will? Does the free will in us relate to the electric fields that is our brain. Does our brain trigger change in the electromagnetic field of waves that surround us. Does thought really have the power to change our fate, our environment, and in turn our reality?

You be the judge. Just like you always have done.
