tumblr and doubt

Tumblr.

I have been scouring the internet for more and it has once again delivered, albeit being in the form of artistically presenting my own intellectual input. I just keep putting my brain into different parts of the world wide web, don't I?

The thing about the internet that worries me the most (especially since the underlying motive behind the Google Chrome OS [despite its obvious greatness]) is that, there is an astoundingly large chance that, perhaps there will come to be a day where nothing will exist in a physical state. We'll lose the ability for verbal communication, we'll lose a structured language..

And, if one day the internet were to experience permanent destruction, we'd lose everything, and we'd realise, everything that we previously knew only exists in our minds. The capacity to share all this information via this non-physical medium is.. somewhat dangerous. Of course that begs the question of whether or not this information is worth preserving - it's definitely debatable. This little device that I stare at all day long is a portal to almost everything known to the human race. What else are we supposed to do? Everything is just much too easily acessible, and it just scares me, almost. It scares me that, in the future, this might be all I know. I don't want social networking and the latest google application to be everything I live for. I don't want to get a job with the intention of paying for a roof over my head, food in my stomach and fucking internet connection.

Of course, you may look at it from the opposite perspective; if the human race were to become extinct tomorrow, our "life", as such, would be preserved in the cloud that is the internet. But, does the internet really exist without the power of the human mind? Does something really exist if there is no one to appreciate it? Does something really exist if it has no meaning?

Of course it does.

No offence, but I don't things things pop in and out of existance as soon as they are prevented from observation. They may not exist in your consciousness, but they're certainly there, and they exist for everyone else.. Also, If one is only able to prove their own existance, then everyone is able to prove their existence and therefore everyone exists. And with the rubbish about no one ever seeing exactly the same world as anyone else - yeah, they're all just different perspectives of the same fucking thing.

WHY CAN'T WE STOP SPENDING VALUABLE TIME DOUBTING THE EXISTENCE OF EVERYTHING, BELIEVE THAT MOST THINGS ARE NOT FRAGMENTS OF OUR IMAGINATIONS AND MAKE THE BEST OF WHAT IS WIDELY ACCEPTED TO BE EXIST?

This upsets me so. I'm going to fail TOK.

in an octopus' garden
in the shade.
