| Internet Chat Rooms: Are We Missing the Point?|
In my short life, after decades
of talking too much, Ive come to realize that if one is always speaking, one never listens. If you never listen to others, well, youre limiting your access to a lot of information and understanding. Recently, after much deliberation I thought Id check out what the world of Chat Rooms is like. People talk to each other by text, voice, and web cam. This is a really big phenomenon; I wanted to see what all the fuss is about.
I expect there are many chat rooms where people with similar interests get to understand
each other, and share their perspectives on various aspects of life. These are grand, much cheaper than telephones, and multiple, random everybody can chat to one another simultaneously.
But I speak the truth, and my preconceived ideas about mindless gossip from jaded humans were sadly affirmed as I arbitrarily checked chat rooms that supposedly discussed important subjects. It seems some people are just very bored, and want to be cool and swear on-line, insulting others, and giving this area of understanding technology a bad name. I think a lot of many people
are using the rooms solely for personal conversation that contextually no one else can understand.
I went to a chat room about religion, and then to one about tattoos and it seemed like the same many people
talking. Most of the conversation didnt even touch the supposed subject matter. It was definitely a disenchanting acquired skill
but hopefully with more research I hope to come across some serious rooms where the true intent of the creators has come to fruition.
I guess its dazzling that bored people in our technological society have others to talk to. It means depressed adolescents might
feel more connected to others and not so alone in the world, maybe even having a positive effect on a possibly suicidal youth. But, I do feel this nonsensical chitchat is a sign of our next generations apathetic view of present reality in our postmodern culture. When reading the text from a supposedly religious discussion, and hearing graphic use of derogatory terminology, I really have to wonder about the present spiritual beliefs of my culture.
a true believer of the concept that technology is here to further the consciousness of humanity. Computers and the Internet might
help bring all of us in the world together, thus evolving our society to the next level. After looking at chat rooms, I feel there is a absolutely need to integrate more wisdom and compassion into our new world generation. Having the technology is nice
, but it is only one half of the equation. To generate the Internet work properly, I think we absolutely need to instill the identical
faith we have in science, into a faith that encompasses the actual creators of the acquired skill
and communication tools-humanity itself. We seem to realize that we may invent many effective things, but it looks like we are
missing out on the successful
truth: that we ourselves are part of, and made of something sizeably workable in itself: Life. (Existence!)
