A cyber black hole
People are being sucked into an electronic black hole and are now in danger of losing all real social contact. Even when they are socialising in pubs and clubs and other areas of life, their media device is distracting them.
There are also physical dangers when people are driving on the road or pedestrians are crossing the street as they are glued to their device, carried away by media of various sorts trying to get their attention.
Kids now rarely play with each other any longer and spend days in their bedrooms getting fat, using various electronic social media and game entertainment electronic devices.
This black hole will eventually swallow people whole and they will not know themselves any longer and lose all character. They will essentially become their device, chronically dependent on them for functionally, interactiveness, and living off every byte of infotainment it gives them.
They will grow tired and lazy and let the world come to them instead of actively participating in it as players and not just spectators.
The electronic media age has its drawbacks and people should be all too aware of its debilitating and insidious physical and degenerative psychological affects from overuse. Maurice Fitzgerald, Shanbally, Co. Cork.
