The merry-go-round

As a human race, we are stuck in a never-ending merry-go-round.

One of blame and counter-blame.

One bubble not hearing the other bubble above its own noise of hate.

Everyone chasing something just ahead of us, angry at never seeming to catch it.

Riding the ups and downs with pleasure and pain, nothing constant or deep.

The merry-go-round has no meaning, it just keeps repeating the same, turn after turn.

No one realising they have been round and round the same thing before, never learning or changing.

Sometimes we have to be brave to get off the merry-go-round and be lost in the wilderness. Accepting what is about the merry-go-round and its pursuit of the uncatchable enables us to see an alternative.

WWW is 30

The World Wide Web is 30 today according to Google’s homepage.

Humans in their current form have been around for approximately 200,000 years.

How did we get here as humans without having the internet for 199,970 years of 200,000?

We need to think about what we rely on and how much it really matters, except for of course when you read this blog, then you’ll need WWW. However, saying that, before it would have been a column in a paper or the spoken word.

We don’t need WWW as much as many believe.
