Mystifying in an era of great strides in information and communication technology — some might see this as a paradox, but it can hardly be called one. There is so much coming toward people, that theorizing and fantasizing about a sinister pattern became people’s way of coping with a reality which has grown more complicated. THE big question now is: can it be stopped or reversed? Nope, it can’t. The lid came off of Pandora’s Box, and it can never be put back on. Worse, communication tech (social media in particular) is used and manipulated to change the very fabric of reality. Projection and perception has become more ‘real’, more intrusive, at the expense of facts of life, science and experience.
