Have you ever played that telephone game “Operator”, where you whisper a statement into the ear of the person standing next to you that is then reiterated throughout the entire circle until it comes back around to you? Most times, the sentence that was originally whispered will begin to take a shape of its own becoming more fabricated with each passing person. By the end of the telephone game the entire message has been altered by each passing persons perception, no longer being the original description heard.
Our mainstream Media platforms looks like societies modern day game of “Operator”, passing around mega amounts of material that often times leads into more fear based, misguided, misleading information out there. Some of the most religious, governmental, science based, social, cultural entrenched ideologies now come with a twisted artificial certainty, being adjusted & modified to fit your perception that is scrolled & swiped into your sensory field without a blink of an eye from the AI data algorithm.
How often have you receive information from one of your social media accounts & quickly became convinced of its headline truth without ever researching the inside or outside media platforms for its validation. How many times have you then passed it on & shared it without ever verifying the authenticity of its contents, only assuming it to be the knowledge of wisdom you were looking for.
The truth is, today most platforms have become custom made to fit your own personal agenda with filters of manufactured beliefs that are designed for you & people just like you. The news feed now a days brings only information that can sustain & maintain its longevity, baiting someone to only see what it is that they are searching for. Our modern society is filled with so much trickery & deception that works purposely to create a division, while slowly dissolving the welfare of our personal virtues.
Wars have always made money & the internet has become the best place to rage a lot of battles without anybody realizing what is happening. I don’t want to participate in the this kind of social experiment that is happening all over the world in the hands of our devices, easily hiding behind their screens as stones are cast. How are we to ever recover when the focus has purposely exploited negativity to appear acceptable, making the good things happening around the world become invisible.
Sometimes we can become sucked into imaginary appearances that are created to be highly enticing, playing on the vulnerable aspects of our psyche without ever realizing we have been manipulated (just look at TicTok). I have gone down a few rabbit holes before realizing I had been played, making it very difficult at times to see truth & fiction differently. We live in a time where many things, people & places are passed off as being genuine with their filters, looking as real as real can be in its entire fallacy.
Social con artist have main streamed themselves virtually, becoming a lucrative high paying job for those in the market to deceive. You have tons of felonious groups & people posing as something other than that of the person or institution it professes to represent. This is an effective way to lead people array, in hopes of gaining their trust to control or use them. These types of people can be decorated to look like they belong to any affiliation, going as far as hiding behind a governmental body or religious/ spiritual institutions for their own narcissistic cause & agenda.
How are we supposed to be able to build a foundation of truth or trust when the messages from our global media operator game is running with left out or rewritten historical facts & fraudulent material, in hopes of collectively playing on the emotions of our human behavior. We have managed to water down & normalize sociopathic behavior, mainstreaming it collectively to become available in these hand held devices, virtually weaponizing its viral information. This narrative has become in my opinion the new social online cult of operator extremism.
I used to love using my social media, connecting me to people, places & things I would otherwise have no association too. It saddens me that something that originally started out with honest good intentions has morphed into something that has become so hideous at times with its social interactions, that for my own wellbeing I have taken a huge step back & focused more on the ingenuity of its connected business aspect. Im not interested any longer in viewing this life threw the distorted threads of social media & its game of operator. Peace Love Faith Hope <3 <3 <3
