Cell Phone God

I hate texting I hate cell phones even their convenience because it feels as if everyone has one and no one knows anything they only think they do I even hate the convenience it used to be back in the day if you wanted to know something you had to go in search of it you had to be purposeful intentional now everyone has access to all the information past present and future and still no one knows anything and worse they don’t even care that they don’t know so I hate cell phones because it seems like a waste all that knowledge and nobody knows a thing they just think they do which makes it worse somehow I miss the days where everyone was on the same playing field we knew nothing we knew that we knew nothing and those that did know something they were valued and they worked to maintain their knowledge they put effort into it now everything is so convenient and within reach everyone thinks that they’re knowledgeable or at least can be and so they’re just lazy with it why remember anything or try to know anything or to have any kind of expertise on anything when everything can be assessed with a few strokes of your thumb but in truth nothing is ever really known it’s just accessed in the moment and then forgotten like a piece of tissue that you blow your nose into all that was taken to get that piece of tissue is discarded within seconds not even fully used just a piece of snot and another tree gone I like the days where when you left the house you left everything behind and you could be in the moment wherever you were at and whoever you were around they were the most important people it was a shared experience folks don’t have that today because they have their cell phone they don’t need anybody else or they don’t think that they need anybody else they have a false sense of security that everything is alright everything is OK but the moment that that cell phone is taken from them is lost it’s broken it’s forgotten where is their skill set or God forbid if a satellite goes down a tower goes down what will they do they will be lost that’s what they’ll be completely and utterly lost and worse panicked panic and lost are the worst two things you could possibly be yeah I would like to get rid of the cell phones I’d like to get rid of the cell phones I would like to get rid of the smart TV’s everything that takes our attention away from the moment I would like to get rid of them for a time maybe if there was a way that we could put it away at least for a portion of the day or that you know if they were out of use for at least a portion of the day I think that it would help all of us because it would force us to turn to one another and actually have a conversation reveal our need of one another reveal something something that we’ve lost because our cell phones made us feel like Gods
