Beware the Blog!

Thursday, July 07, 2005

I think that people are reading and writing blogs as a form of amplifying their daily existence. Ennui and lack of real experience outside of commercial phenomena have made most people quite incapable of actually thinking and dreaming their own fantasies. We live vicariously, on an ever-expanding collective experience bank...

eg. this reminds of me of the end of Wim Wenders "Until the End of the World," where there is a machine that can record all the emotional imprints and imagery of the dreamworld and replay them ad infinitum. In the New World, people disappear in the waking life, constantly reliving their dreams, which become start to mutate into infinite variations of the same. They disappear into this netherworld of solipsism.
