Lets run away from Matrix and go back in time

30 08 2010

The other day, I was thinking that these social networking sites, internet, messengers has already trapped us in “The Matrix v 0.1 alpha”. Our half day is spent on these virtual sites which has nothing in real in them. Day by day, everyone is being so much involved in these sites that they are actually loosing the values of reality. Or in other words, the reality of real relations.

Everyone has their own reasons of using these sites and defending them and I have my own reasons of getting away from these sites. I have been maintaining my FaceBook activities from last 3 months to see how much change I have gone through. To my astonish, there is remarkable change. Here is my activity graph. You can see, there is steady decline in it. A decline from 680 notifications to 454 a month.

Now the question is, why is it so? Why a geek like me, who is into computers, into almost every social site is being frustrated by all these things. Well, honestly speaking, I don’t even know. But what I feel is that the reality is way more important than these virtual things. Talking to someone in real is way more freshening rather reading someone’s status messages and commenting on them or having a conversation on MSN.

A psychological studies have shown that today’s generation spend most of the time online rather playing games in their back-yard. The end result, physical and mental illness.

I really wish that I could invent the time machine today and jump back in time. Where friendship meant hanging out with real friends. Where fun meant being tired till death still saying that it was the best day. Where LOL meant the laugh attacks that make you shed tears. Where a perfect day would have been with family, friends wandering on the streets rather posting stupid videos, pictures or updating status messages 100 times a day! I wish, I could go back in time – Anyone there to join me there?

I really agree with you!!
We always try to make a FAKE life in those “social networking sites”
just cause may our lives in real are too boring not interesting somehow!
So we try again n again to get away from Real life because of the problems or something like this so we might say it’s just wasting of time!!Really there’s who use the “social networking sites” not for nothing but unfortunattely the most do

I’m thinking that a lot! Actually, I realized that, I waste my time on the Facebook-Twitter-Tumblr a lot.. My excuse was; It’s communication! Of course I’ll do that.. But I’ve realized people keep talking about something not real, even at the street.. Like; “Yeah he invited her to become friends but she ignored.. Did you see his last tweet” … It was horrible! And does not even people realize that; what they do is so funny. So I stopped using all social websites. I only use my phone. Not for talk.. For a few things like; call people to ask immediately, arrange the meetings etc. Otherwise, I talk people face to face and hang out with real friends.. Drinking a cup of coffee..Just walk at the street.. But it still sucks to see someone tweeting, texting when im in front of that person and keep talking.. It’s not like Matrix of course.. But not yet. We already created our own Matrix.. Took the wrong pill and dreaming. It’s great to see someone who thinks the same (Sorry for my grammar. English is not my native language)
