Plugging our brains

We have this eerie habbit of plugging our brains to things, which paradoxically, paralyze it. Chief among them are:

  1. Cable TV
  2. Movies
  3. Music
  4. Internet
  5. Alcohol & Drugs

All the above have the amazing capability of making us immobile.

Ever seen people watching TV in living rooms? They just can't move. A man intently watching cable TV is no different from a man who is a quarter down. They both are far from their logical reasoning and have become merely slaves in the hands of their master.

We have this constant urge to plug ourselves to any of the above mentioned addictions. The moment we are not doing anything which is a part of daily activities, we immediately bond ourselves with them.

The reason(s) for chaining ourselves to these addictions are one too many and have been documented very well. One of them being that these things enable us to reach a state of mood where we can wallow in self-pity or identify with our inner selves, albeit for a brief duration of time, before reality breaks the stupor of this madness.

There can never be an end to this addiction. And we pride in calling human beings as the "Thinking Species".
