“People marry because they need witness” – Shall we Dance, movie.
What does witness mean? It’s an entity that grants you an identity by confirming your existence. A witness reacts to you, your actions, your rants and raves. It notes your existence by listening to you, probably mute but finally does react to your existence.
The mirror is the first non-human witness to our existence. Then somewhere in the electronic age we moved onto the webpages as a place of exhibiting our existence/identity. But somehow im not sure ill regard existence synonymously with identity. Anyways, back from the digress… the blogs arrived. We had a voice now. A voice capable of shouting, screaming, cribbing, thinking, laughing, giggling. A voice my own. A voice that breathes and lives. A personal space that cannot be intruded upon. I can bounce back everytime I want.
Why are we so intent on leaving a legacy? To register our thoughts. Why is the need for a witness to all our actions/thoughts? To live more than our own biological timelines. In the minds of people? To be a someone in this world. Is there a reason for this empowering need to be remebered longer than our own lifespans?
One reason for asking this question is because I think this will help speculate about the next big pop technology.
The other reason I ask is because to know, if people would still complain, crib, shout on the blog if they never receive any attention/comments from others???
