I had my laptop’s screen hinge fixed today. I had to spend around 6 hours without it as it was being fixed.

It’s unnerving to have to spend even a few hours without computer or internet or electricity for that matter. Life seems to stop without these artificial necessities.

When I think about it my life is filled with similar artificial necessities. Social networks, news and communication apps, games, etc. fill up most of my day. Even without realizing I am spending a whole lifetime doing things that are not important.

I have had periods where I stopped watching television or reading news. It’s good in the sense that I am not in hurry when I am not suppose to constantly catch up on something but more than often a hole, even a shallow one, can’t resist getting filled up with river of stimuli that we have around us.

One could go away and live like a hermit but it’s easy to be a hermit than to live through stimuli and not be affected by it.

Even if I wanted to make a point, to what point would it be.
