All things change in a dynamic environment.
Your effort to remain what you are is what limits you.
I feel confined, only free to expand myself within boundaries.
If a technological feat is possible, man will do it.
Almost as if it's wired into the core of our being.
Even a simulated experience or a dream is simultaneous reality and fantasy.
It can also be argued that DNA is nothing more than a program designed to preserve itself. Life has become more complex in the overwhelming sea of information. And life, when organized into species, relies upon genes to be its memory system. So, man is an individual only because of his intangible memory... and memory cannot be defined, but it defines mankind.
The "White Christmas" episode from Black Mirror is a technological nightmare unlike any I've ever seen, be it real or fictional.
Imagine blocking or being blocked by other people... in actual real life.
Imagine having a digital copy of your mind for use as an A.I. for trivial purposes such as smart home controls.
Now Imagine being that, thinking you're you while trapped inside a virtual construct forever with nothing to do except perform mundane tasks.
The people who wrote this episode are brilliantly fucked in the head. The futuristic concepts they portray based on how we use our technological advances feel like they are absolutely attainable and just years away from being real.
