We worry so much about malicious codes, but what about the mind?

    Yeah, that thing above our nose, between our eyes?

    How many are actually aware of their most minute thoughts and decisions?

    How many actually question why?

    Or do we just go with the flow, you know, social and corporate engineering?

    Who actually questions their own motives, humilty and honesty?

    A lot of people call "God" their god, yet, still do as they please, just as free will permits.

    The world never got worse, it was always bad and corrupt. In our younger innocent years, things seemed full of life, then as the years roll by, we realize, at least some, that life is just a fantasy...

    There is no such thing as a better time and space, only what we can make today...

    I've been going against the flow for years. :p
    Usually catch hell for it, too. "Why can't you be like everybody else?"


    And while the world isn't more corrupt, the means of using corruption have quadrupled.

    It not that it's quadrupled, perse. It's the way we exploit each other and or emotions. :D

    Yes, it is quadrupled because we know more about the human mind, habits, and so on...

    I think our minds are hacked everyday...

    By the news, media, television, and (Our you ready for this?), Ourselves.

    I beginning to form the opinion everything is by choice. Sometimes we think things are not a choice, but they are! :D

    We choose how to interpret life (A lot of people in auto pilot mode).

    We choose what and whom to listen to.

    We choose what path to wander on any given situation. Is the glass half full or empty?

    Consumers are exploited, manipulated and mind screwed, hence, WE allow others to choose for us. Be it mostly out of sheer ignorance or just being plain ole lazy! lol

    I wonder, how many buy material possessions that they actually use? Or do they buy the apple or android os (A very small example) to which TRULY suits their needs? How many people buy, just to say they have this that or the other because it APPEARS popular?

    Advertisers (The people who know human psychology very intimately) are whom chooses what most of us buy and use everyday, even if we don't need it or it doesn't suit us! lol :D

    Kevin Mitnick, the first "hacker" to go to prison (IIRC), has said that 90% of what he did was "social engineering". In other words, he BSed people over the phone most of the time instead of using a computer.

    What happened to the simple concept of thinking for one's self? We're supposed to swallow the pill and believe?

    No one thinks anymore!

    No sense of true spirituality.

    No sense of self awareness.

    We gobble up what is spoon fed, rather than using built in tools of logic, humanity, spirituality and basic common courtesy and decency...

    I call B.S. on television and technology.

    We rely on others rather than our own intuitive intuitions!

    I would say, that makes a whole lot of robots out there in the world...
