We are not living for survival anymore. Food and shelter can be obtained with ease for the most of us. Then what now do our lives revolve around?
In the book Timeline by Michael Crichton, is is noted that perhaps are lives are now driven by entertainment. Our society as a mass is not driven by knowledge or mood or people or superstition, but by our need to be entertained. Because of technology, pleasing ourselves become infinitely easier; youtube on tap, books on demand, games at ease, chatting in clicks.
Technology is a shroud of an artificial ‘key to happiness.’ And we are swimming quite well in it. We are immersed in this world where entertainment drives us. A moment which we are lack of entertainment is a moment which we feel our life is incomplete. We tell ourselves that ‘Life isn’t life once we reach happiness.’ And this entertainment is happiness.
As you are reading this, you are hoping to be entertained.
I predict that in the future, our lifestyle will be more absorbed around this key trend our society is following.
