iPuds: iPods, iPads and iPhones
Timism is a clutter cutter, an Occam's razor. By standardizing the analysis of dynamic systems (the entities of existence) into the creation or cancering of time, one can quickly tell what is and isn't a time-wasting problem. All too often, things are valued as time-creative when in fact they are the opposite. Unfortunately for humanity, a sense of happiness is often equated with being time-creative. However, simple examples refute this connection: the alcoholic wanting another drink, the sadist wanting another victim, or the priest wanting another alterboy. In general, one can say that igknowing a problem false into this case of confusing a sense of happiness with a meaningful, creative life as in "igknowance is bliss." Likewise, a lot of time is lost when old values beget the road the hell was paved with good intentions from bad values.
Summarily equating happiness and well-being without questioning or re-inspecting the activity for true time-creation is to allow a lot of problems to exist and grow. One's life will be less if one foolishly pursues happiness from cancers that consume one's time. Increasingly, thanks to developing technology, more and more of humanity are pursuing happiness from activities that are self-cancerous: iPads, iPods, and iPhones(smartphones).
Consider a continuum that represents the average person's waking day of 16 hours. Which kind of world would you want to live in? 100% work or 100% play. If you kneejerk the old cliche "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" then you just igknowed the question. For you, the cliche is "All play and no work makes Jack a dead boy." Anyone who chooses play over work will not have to worry about being a dull person.
Today, humans play more each day than at any point in the past. Part of the play is the increased presence of iPads, iPhones, and iPods in people's lives. The vast majority of mobile communication is not about solving problems but about self-distraction. In a very real sense, there is no difference between a person spending hours putting their digits on an iDevice and on their privates. When done digitizing their puds or pudenda or iPuds, what do they have to show for those hours of their lives except a sense of release?
When one spends all day masturbating whether by digitizing one's pud or pudenda or digitizing one's iPud, the result is the same, a cancerous waste of time. One is part of the problem rather than the solution. Two important questions are begged. Does another have a right to tell a person to stop masturbating too much? If the answer is yes, the second question is how do we reduce excess masturbation?
Central to the first question, "right to tell" is what are human rights or freedoms? If one goes by what people want then then will not have what people need. People want something for nothing which often leads to people having less than they need because they distract themselves from worktime for playtime.
If one understands that on the continuum of work to play that there is a threshold beyond which humanity is not working enough to support the future of humanity, one recognizes the need to reduce play and increase work. It is a duty to survival of self and others. It is the right thing to do if one wants to maintain one's freedom from problems.
The continuum of work and play mirrors how the cost of humanity to Mother Nature has two parts: the cost of living and the cost of lying. The cost of living is the daily time we need to spend to have the necessities of life. The cost of lying is the time we spend seeking what we want which is how we lie to ourselves since our wants are always changing. All of our wants are variations of play. Our opinions are derived from our wants.
Since most people do not question life sufficiently, their values, emotions and motivations are a synthesis of their opinions or wants. Thus, they do not think others have a right to define what is right and wrong since everybody's opinion is equally good. It is like a person who has always been blind who cannot understand colors. It is like the person who cannot escape their obsession with sports addiction. The constant self-reinforcing focusing on sports play prevents developing sufficient awareness that this is a form of mental masturbation in which one is playing with oneself to the detriment of one working for oneself.
When one understands the role of distractions and narrow visions, one must conclude that Smartphones dumb people down. They require unnecessary ancillary distractions which constitutes collateral damage to one's problem-solving capacity. One is unaware in a manner akin to how one is unaware of one's falling asleep: As one falls asleep, one's capacity to assess one's state of mind decreases faster than one's ability to realize that one is falling asleep.
In conclusion, one of the reasons that what needs to be done to save life on earth will not be done is the increase of iPuds which distract users from meaningful work. iPuds merely aggravate the oldest form of one playing with one's mind through prayer.
iPudders have no personality. From your life experiences, which has a personality that you want as a neighbor and friend? The worker or non-worker? The worker or the player? The plodder or the iPudder?
Which is more likely to shaft the taxpayer with an expensive unplanned fetus
with a greater chance of becoming a criminal? A whore or a slut? A whore
knows she cannot make money if she has morning sickness or a babybump while
sluts all too often think a baby is meal ticket.
(Personal note: Being ornery, during the 2008 Presidential contest, I used to navigate the conversation with pro-Palin supporters into their realizing that they had been logically lead down a verbal path to the conclusion that not only was Palin a slut but the supporters reasons for endorsing Palin were based on shared life values. As one person said of me, "You not only find people's raw nerves but you then peez on them.")
What about sportsaholics? Or, people possessed of the holy spirit en masse? In the final analysis, which is timism, the viability of a dynamic system whether an amoeba or our planet is based on creating time rather than destroying time. Inaction due to self-distraction is a cancer unto one's world. Doe it really matter whether the ipuddery of mental bliss is from manually manipulating one's pud or pudenda or from any one of social media. All are non-creative of time by virtue of wasting time. Cancers die.
