Heard an expert on Dutch radio say that what social media are basically doing, is hack our brain. Sounds ominous, doesn’t it? But she isn’t too far off, if you consider that many have caged themselves in with all sorts of preconceived notions, fed to them by social media platforms. There has never been such a powerful ‘invasive organism’ since totalitarian states— to have them do the thinking for people, confirm them in their beliefs, whilst giving the illusion of freedom of choice. Silicon Valley is not perse immoral, but amoral (without morals). I’d say: try to live your life, rather than uploading it into… The Matrix. A reverse narrative of the film in which Keanu Reeves starred, now there’s a film script.
