A thought

We (human) lives with (Abrahamic) religion as our philosophy of life.

The best morals indeed are in there

Thrives like a mushroom spreading it’s spore like a Krakatoa’s ash

Seeds of peace is being sprinkled all over the place

The law derives from, we live by it, we survive

but the soul will never be pure and flawless

Cause the brain reigns in our physical body claiming its sovereignty

 

Who even can resist when you’re brain told you to disgust abnormality?

I tend think that one of the decent human are people who spend all their life meditating. No idea what the purpose of it, but they look as if they had known the answer for the mysteries of life. For we live in this world just for a moment, of course it will not last forever. Resisting human crave and other intentions, because they already know the act is utter meaningless.

The popular monotheist’s grand aspiration is the afterlife. May not entirely true, but the main idea something goes like “good deed equals happy afterlife”. That’s it, there’s no other frills to think about. The majority of people in the world wouldn’t have to bother Capitalism if they believe the holy scripture is the absolute answer. Oh what a good world indeed if it filled with zealots, I’m sure it would feel like paradise on earth (ha ha).

Our modern civilisation mostly shaped by Capitalism that sprouts the fruit of innovations. We enjoy these innovations for granted and yes we thrive and fall from it. But innovations is just a mere glitter or toppings of life from the popular theism perspective and we actually enjoy it. Pampered by the touch of technology we assume that it might not be available in the afterlife so we accept it, make the most out of it while still living and use it without knowing the history behind it.

Living ostensibly normal is what humans good at.

At first, I thought my ear was the culprit

And then, I guess it is my state of mind

 

 

 

I tried,

But I guess my neurons isn’t moving in the right direction

Perhaps my synapse busted? Or maybe it’s just the wind

Frankly speaking, my cognition seems more reliable back when I was kid

It felt cathartic

What happen?

 

I prefer to think that there is nothing happened with this body

but the more I think, the more I think more

Every present is robbed by thoughts

 

But it’s not the time that I’m thinking

It’s the pain in thinking about something

Something nonsense, too nonsense that you just can’t get it out

It pains you to the point that you felt guilty about yourself

It feels like the neurons just turned into balls of steel that pin-balling to-and-fro inside your very own skull smashing the inner wall

 

No last resort, it’s just a catch-22 that you have to let loose every single day

 

The Marriage of Digital and Fiction: Emergence of the Post-Truth Era

The truth can be proven if we experienced it with our sense. We heard a cat releasing the “meow” sounds and we approve it, we see the sun is shining bright in Gili Trawangan and approve that it is the source of light, we smell our mother’s cooking some delicious Beef Rendang and we approve the smell, we taste the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee and appreciate the taste. Those are facts and the way we feel about it is subjectively created in our mind. For a long time, our sense is the most traditional media we used to tell how we feel about something.

The Digital Media though, is a unique phenomena. This time bending machine spread texts like mad, really mad. Text about human experiences are in here, just by using our eyes, we can record many data from the written text from the monitor display to the brain and then you know at least how Antartica looks and feels like. Surprisingly, humans do enjoy the cyber world and have spoil them much until its credibility trustable enough for them. Whenever a story or news exposed to the consumer/audience/user in the digital media, immediately people will start to believing it without any preemptive caution.

The news is viral, it’s like a virus, but it’s a fiction in digital, a fiction that shapes the public opinion. This virus is the people who likes bending the truth far enough to cause a chaos in society. With a certain motives, an individual can make a news about how a Commercial Mineral Water is not distilled and purified well enough so it still contains unwanted substance. He spread it through WhatsApp and in picosecond everybody starts ostensibly buy other mineral water products and boycotting the mineral water from the bad news.

The use of Fictionized Truth or in popular terms we call it Hoax have often appeared in this 21st Century. With the help of Yellow Journalism it spreads faster than the real news itself. The first news that people take will often be the news they held firm. What’s bad is that this fictionized truth is a negative content, this will impact the publics concern and opinion with certain topics.

The Post-Truth Era is softly entering the world. And sadly it is more popular for the use of politics (see: Post-Truth Politics). We have seen Presidents using false rumors to gain publics emotion and to win the campaign. Some individuals fictionized the truth to debilitate some candidate’s/party’s vote. And some individuals use hoax just to gain popularity.

This is the age where our main teacher is the written text. We trust them by faith, yet text after text that we see or hear is written by people, a subjective individual. But I can assure you though that knowing this doesn’t make you intelligent in deciphering which is true and which is not, but a wise man should feed on the good deed, moral and what’s human. A wizard though, is a wise man who also write literatures of utopian dream and dystopian reality.

Where the heck is the World going?

Economic Growth, Happiness, Welfare are few elements important people talks about especially in politics. Based on religion and human rights, we struggle to build the utopian world we dreamed. We dreamed that every single person in the world will have a good quality of living. But what is considered a good quality of living?

Nevertheless, the main thing that keeps the people live is by working, working to get money–a trust transformed into a valued tangible object with society’s consent.

Work, in context of economic, are a bunch of acts human do in order to get a sum of money.

Work, though, in a more modern concept is not just a process to get money, but also to do the process itself according to your passion and expertise. Those are connected to Happiness.

The reality, most people who live in the city (which is the majority) haven’t found the happiness they needed. Sure they get the money, spent it for good things they need. But their mental health is always at stake.

Is Economic Development the answer to human happiness? Or is it only to produce new kind/type of problems?

If Economic Development ≠ Happiness, Where the heck the World is going?!
