>There was a noticed outbreak of depression after people saw the movie, “Avatar.” It is said that people saw a planet full of social beings who lived in a wonderful, caring community. People left the theaters and felt depression about returning to a cold society full of people who ignore you. I’m sure Avatar is not the only example of a movie that can make you feel this way. It’s no wonder why I enjoy watching movies in order to escape such a horrible place into a world where life is better.
I wonder what happened to the Earth to cause people to be so cold. I think a possible cause might be the way the last few generations were taught as children to fear others. Stranger Danger! Sinister Ministers! Trust nobody! What happens when everybody thinks this way? You get people who completely ignore you when you crave for them to just acknowledge your existence. You just can’t reach them. They avert their eyes as you give them a friendly smile. You almost want to grab them by the shoulders and shake them yelling, “Can you see me? Can you see me?”
Even old friends are impossible to reach. Family too. For the last few decades I’ve been reaching out to family and friends as best as I can but I get nothing back. Those who do acknowledge my presence blow off my cries for help. I’ve tried reaching out to strangers on the internet and get no better response.
Have you seen the movie, “The Truman Show”? Jim Carrey, without his knowledge, finds out that his whole life is false. He is the subject of a reality show. Nothing that he knows is actually real. I have a serious feeling that that is what this is. There really is nobody out there. This whole planet is here so that the aliens who produce the show can watch me and laugh. Everything and everybody around me are just holograms. (Turns to camera and shoots the finger.)
If that is not the case and this planet is real then it is truly a Cold and Uncaring Planet.
