I was reading somewhere that millions of teenagers are sending pictures with rabbit ears and vomiting rainbows on Snapchat app. Probably millions of adults are doing the same.
Imagine this is what human life has come down to.That's how they spend their time .The sheer stupidity of wasting time and sending nonsensical garbage to one another.
And certain technology companies are actually making profits on "numbing and dumbing" the human race, that fritters away their time and energy on the crap some of these companies offer.
Either these companies should raise the intellectual curiosity and awareness in the world, or these companies should be punished for the dull crap they offer to the society. The irony is that these companies are actually making millions out of selling this crap.
I was reminded of Amazon when they created AWS (Amazon Web Services) in a great effort to tap into idle capacities of computers worldwide and call it cloud computing. Later Microsoft with Azure, Salesforce and other providers entered the Cloud Computing industry.
From a Philosophy standpoint, we should have a similar way to create cloud computing for Humans. Imagine the talent, brains and energy nestled in millions of teenagers and adults around the world, and instead of those resources being frittered away in making "rainbow vomiting pictures", they actually are leveraged to raise the overall intellectual and happiness quotient of the world. Imagine the kind of cloud computing humans can offer if we can somehow find a way to leverage it.
Lets hope our society 100 hundred years from now, is much more advanced in this aspect, than it is today. But at least we can aspire to the next-level we can arrive at as humanity.
