We live in a world of noisy isolation. Our contact with electronic gadgets exceeds our contact with humans. We're busier, faster, brighter, and full of more information than at any time in the history of mankind. But do we talk to each other?
The microchip explosion has changed our ability to become intimate with our loved ones. We text them quick statements that are Egyptian characters in nature: mostly consonants or acronyms. LOL (laugh out loud), BTW (by the way), TTYL (talk to you later), and OMGTKOFGG (oh my gosh the kitchen's on fire, gotta go).
The Instant Messaging phenomenon is replacing the heart to heart intimacy critical in a relationship. If you want a better relationship, turn off your electronics and learn more about the one you love. Create a bubble, kind of like a force field, around yourself to prevent the world from getting in and spend some time with your family and loved ones.
