There was an entertaining movie called 21 grams that was a title behind some research that was conducted about the weight of the soul when the human body dies. while I have looked into, and more commonly asked, “how?” did one measure the weight loss upon death, I think I am more fascinated with the question of how much of your soul gets lost when you sell it for the “gram?”
I am talking about the reality of people all doing whatever for Instagram fame and fortune. While I get the concept, is anyone else out there wondering about the lunacy some folks go to for that fame?
The area that started all this research was more like six degrees of separation when Instagram came out. What I would do is a mathematical test to end up with either photo of people taking pictures of themselves and/or some theme. When my relatives realize di was on Instagram I had to stop the research, as I was merely wondering and looking how the system worked from the standpoint like I did when Friendster was the first social network on the planet.
We had invested in the ability to video/cam all over the planet and bring the idea of tools we take for granted today into the market with white pine, cu-see-me, and other things that came out of Cornell University. We had my myriads of offers to host all sorts of various groups/genders/desires, yet, we didn’t think that was going to be our primary focus. Thinking back to today and from where the technology evolved from, I never thought I would see a society so enamored and addicted to being connected to a phone. It is an astounding thing to witness.
So when I look at the research of all the Instagram, influencers and such. It seems like it is merely a big hustle where people are selling their souls with image, brand, and looking good at the moment and appearing to sacrifice who they really are in the process.
I guess a comment on a photo I posted tells the story best. it was from an AI group…” nice photo composition, if your lighting were better it would have been…”
I repined, “thanks. I was taught you don’t manipulate an image, yet I live in a world where not much of anything isn’t manipulated.”
I guess that is why I like nature so much. Man is a brilliant tool maker, but I many times question how developed or evolved we really are. what is that megadeath song from the 90’s “peace sells but who's buying?”
Apparently, influencers get paid a lot to shill for compaies and products with a “gram.” i wonder how much the soul looses in weight for each one sent?
