In Our Rush To Create Or Consume, All Substance Is Lost, And We’re Settling For The Base And Boring

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.
