All that we see or seem (Intermezzo Part 5)

“All that we see or seem.” by Leah Kuehne Oil on Paper http://www.leahkuehne.com/Home.html
Continued from Monday … (On the iWorld)
In the iWorld we have not only forgotten how to live and love each other, we have lost the ability to relate.
We have substituted being in the presence of others with being in the pleasure of others.
We are even going so far as to build relationships without physical proximity … or even touch.
In the iWorld ….
Self-gratification is our sacred text.
Having our needs met is the service of worship.
“I” am the alter.
Others exist to service our needs. They are our vestments.
We change our vestments as we wish.
We consume others for our pleasure and then when we are finished with them we excrete them.
Relating has been replaced with consumption.
And we find another, and another, and another …
Such is the dance of life in the iWorld.
It seems that we see very little of the other in the iWorld. “I” is in the way.
There is another way.
To be continued ….
