The Tao and Social Media

Post by Eodnhoj7 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 1:53 am

1. All being folds from a center point of being in endless variation. This is the way.

2. The observer in turn, reflecting upon this becomes this center point and becomes the change.

3. This way exists as a natural means of being and is synonymous to adaption.

4. The invention of social media is an encapsulation of this way in an artificial framework where artificiality is force.

5. It is a dualistic state to the Tao and is an exhibition of force, as reality unfolds through a dominant stance of want of the observer rather than necessity.

6. Social media, as an artificial representation of the Tao, is a means of transaction between the individual and the individuals wants causing an inherent "layering" of illusion in the individual in opposition to natural law.

So, why does the Tao seem to me vastly more calming and tranquil than the thought of communicating with the rest of humanity? To me, the way is to shun social media, if only to save one from catching whatever lunacy the rest have.

The Tao has nothing whatever to do with social media. They're as reconcilable as putting boots on a frog.

It is an inversion of the Tao.

So, it's the Tao's evil twin?

They should do that in French restaurants lol. Frog legs a la Wellingtons. Although, it would be a reminder of Napoleon's defeat, so maybe that's no go.

It may be implied.
