The thing about music is, it isn’t real. It isn’t something you hold and inspect, like an object, like a painting. It is sound waves. What are sound waves? Doesn’t matter. Is what it is and it isn’t something physical which perhaps, is why it is so awesome, because we aren’t real either. We have bodies but, besides that our consciousness is? Are we anything more than a bunch of thoughts? Are thoughts real? Are they something other than thought waves? That is enough sense for now.
Amazing how wrong I can be about the future, but perhaps it is a hopeful thing, when you usually think we just a lost ship in the universe, fowling the nest. Maybe I’m wrong and Kim Jong il will blow up Mar-A-Lago before USA blows up North Korea before Russia and rest of world join the blow up party.
But that’s not where I was going. I am just bewildered to have not anticipated the surveillance society we entered. That people would use interac, where very easily a secret code is not so secret to everyone around you, and there are ceiling mounted cameras recording above you.
But that’s still not where I was going. Spotify sent me a playlist and it is perfect. I don’t like that. It means they followed everything I did in my searches and then algorithmed it back at me. No thanks, don’t want them (or the police or my mother or you) to record my movements. I want the illusion that I am free. Get your own illusion.
