digital abstraction disease

As more and more of our lives become dominated by representations of reality, there are serious negative repercussions that affect our entire society.

We have begun to stray from using our own experiences to guide our lives and make decisions, instead using those provided by others. Those others in turn do the same thing, and there are increasingly growing layers of abstraction between our perception of reality and reality itself.

This infinity mirror phenomenon is driving negative outcomes on an extraordinary scale.

You are not a number. You are not an organization. You do not know everything. You need others to grow. Your wealth does not quantify your worth. You are complicated. Your motivations are unique. You will not be used for someone else's gain. You do not need to be told what to think. You are the protagonist of your story. Your mind is your own. You can perceive and feel and learn.
