With the advancement of CGI technology, the lines between the real and fake on screen blur, changing our sense of reality and perception of the world. CGI also isolates us from the world around with increase of technology that takes face time away. It keeps us isolated from the world because of the convenience of the internet and the computer technology brought by CGI that we don’t shoot on-location or even with props anymore. Environments aren’t made by setting pieces in a setting, but in a dark computer room in a studio that could be very far away. The effects this kind of technology can have on us is very scary to think about.


Octogenerians fight over lottery ticket

Two octogenerian sisters are fighting over a lottery ticket worth half a million dollars. This petty feud is something that shouldn’t happen. They took it to court. I hope I never take my brothers to court over money especially in my later days when i would want to cherish everyone around and not worry, just live and love.

Short comparison between Lao Tzu and Henry David Thoreau

          “I heartily accept the motto-“That government is best which governs least.”” These are the words of Henry David Thoreau; which is the opening line to his essay “Civil Disobedience”. This is very similar to Lao Tzu’s philosophy of the Tao. In which Lao says “When the master governs, the people are hardly aware that he exists.” Thoreau takes direct influence from the Dao-Te Ching. Machiavelli is all about taking power and ruling with ruthlessness and fear. While Lao Tzu writes about freeing yourself from the material world; and the government is all about controlling material. Lao Tzu’s philosophy goes with centering yourself, and when you reach that point, you can self-govern without trying. Thoreau uses the same principle. That we should govern ourselves because our conscience is ours. And laws do not make our consciences better just because of restrictions. So government only gets in the way. States Thoreau “we should be men first and subjects afterwards.” He says this because citizens “resign their conscience to the legislator.” This is unfair to us; so governing powers must be as little as possible. Thoreau takes it one step further and wants no government at all. Lao Tzu is a very influential philosopher and it is shown in Thoreau’s work.

The fall is really poetic, it is the ultimate ultimatum. What it gives you is two choices: to lay there or to get up and finish the race you see ahead of you. To walk off or to press on through this hurt.

Being genuine seems to be a lost art that being replacing by a social structure that is engineered to make everyone happy. This isn’t right.
