Less Is More. Until It Becomes Nothing.

We frenetically type away our lives.

We write off the words, throwing them like a depreciated currency when sometimes less is more.

“More, more, even more”: clicks, links, tags, tweets, posts, pics, blogs, lists. More avatars [en, wiki]. More input to type away the lack of proper stimuli for authentic communication.

Ultimately, we are left without any spare words for our souls.

We perform those pseudo-activities, sometimes “funny moments”, which we can photo, pick, post, and then offer others to click on to share the emptiness of content we reached for but never truly feel. Maybe only for a scattered micro-second.

These pseudo-activities actually do a great job of helping us to type away our inner meaning. But, besides the mental rest – and that being approximate – we don’t take profit upon this complex communication appreciation.

Then come the red times of selling short. But who loses the transaction when you sell short of your soul? What will a man give in exchange for his soul?

It is said in the Bible the end of the world will come when there is no path from human being to human being. Despite improving the quality and speed of technological infrastructure, we are on our way towards that.
