No one is stopping.
No one is stopping to THINK:
Why am I creating/posting/re-posting this meme?
Why am I recording this single-use, cheap, rushed, basic, at-its-core boring story?
Intentional creation is becoming extinct.
God of War 2018. Dune 2021.
Shining glimpses of ‘bubble-protected creation’,
Where the teams all mutually agreed to block the modern era out.
Good, let alone great, art is fighting against an increasingly potent torrent-tide pushing us all toward consumer-brain mediocrity.
Mindlessly scrolling, posting, re-posting.
Technology is no longer our ally,
Because we’ve made ourselves its slaves.
