As the whirlwind in its fury teareth up trees, and deformeth the face of nature, or as an earthquake in its convulsions overturneth whole cities; so the rage of an angry man throweth mischief around him.
- Akhenaton?, Egyptian King and Monotheist (c. B.C. 1375)
For those of us who are daily users, I honestly believe that social media has changed the way our brains are wired. Just consider this, if you log in to Facebook on a daily basis, it changes the way you think. How so? If you’re a daily Facebook user, and you go out to a club or you climb a mountain or you see a beautiful sunset, part of your brain is enjoying it, but don’t deny it – there’s also another part of your brain that’s thinking, this is going to make an awesome post on Facebook!
Which leads me to my philosophical question . . .
If a man goes to a ballgame, and he doesn’t post it on Facebook, did the ballgame really happen?
