What’s crackin yo! Long time no talk, as usual, ya feel!? Sorry I haven’t been on da grind in fo a while, got them new update on da Yak where we can be anonymous again… lil incognito!
Aside from dat, lil technology got me thinkin… I be chillin with da homie Staples and he tell me he got them new phone! I be like, oh lord, it fresh cuz his old phone was all slow and sometimes I think he half steppin by not replyin but it really be his lil phone not receivin messages quickly…
So with his new phone, he be replyin like da Flash, lookin like insta-messagin! Then dat got me to realize… we always movin fasta and fasta in this world… it all due to them technology yo! Back in da days, we send them messages by word of mouth, then came them lil delivery birds… then lil postal mail, then lil telegrams, then lil telephones, lil pagers, then them lil computa release them IM (lil insta messagin), finally goin on to them cellphones and video chat programs.
Through them evolution, things have gotten fasta and fasta, almost to da point where we try to be all fasta than things normally are… Fo instance, we wanna lose them weight, so we resort to them “quick methods” or “fad diets” fo them easier and quicka solution. Howeva, we don’t realize dat this is kinda like a cheat when you be compared to da normal way of doin it: consistent workouts and eatin healthy for a long period of time. This isn’t technology-related, but I wanted to give an example of how them daily life thangs are gettin quicka and quicka.
Back to technology, anotha example is when we used to play them online video games and had to wait a good minute for da otha person to connect to da lobby. Now, we got people be joinin da “lobby” all quick like them Speedy Gonzalez.
This made me think: Are we goin too fast fo ourselves? Sometimes it feel like a lil dream… them hours have became minutes, and now them minutes have become mere seconds… This speed we goin through shape everythang we see, like in them movies: now we got all them cuts, jumpin from scene to scene, no still-shots anymo. It be wildin, even commercials have become da same way, it be all shorter and shorter, more information jampack in 30 seconds or so.
Anyway, I speak a lot on examples and such, ya feel? But da fact dat I can see all them examples speaks to me dat it be wildin out there with speed, goin fasta and fasta as we speak. So what will happen once we reach them “top speed“?
Somethang to think about… will we then create a whole new world (shout-outs to them Alladin song) where things are done much mo fasta than it is now done in “real life”? Time might even be rewritten in da new world where a year becomes a month, or a month becomes a day, or hours becomes minutes… minutes to seconds… and seconds become…….? It all a theory, but what if them human life comes to dat point…? We be wildin a lot on them speed and we only wanna go fasta. But sometimes, it be okay to take them steps back and realize da situation… must be conscious… and move with it along the right speed.
Let me know what ya’ll think, sorry dat it be difficult fo me to come to ma point! I be tryin to work on them vocab and word composition fo ya’ll to be quicka (there it is again, them ability to write a point out quickly).
If ya’ll made it this far, have a good lil Christmas and New Years, and also happy belated Thanksgivin ya’ll!
