things are never what they seem...???
Call it old age, call it skepticism, call it cynicism, call it senility, whatever you want, it is a strange and awkward feeling.
Things have changed. It use to be that what you saw and what people said was fact.
If you saw someone walking down the street, you could be pretty sure it was really them and not a holographic image, not a phony lookalike with a pasted on head.
Now you can not be sure.
With the digital age, you can put the head of someone on a torso of someone else. It's done every day and with someone with skilled hands and mouse talent it is almost undistiguishable from the seeming real.
Relationships have been hiding feelings and truths for years....something a computer keyboard can't manipulate too long.
Trust and the belief in something is important. If you can't trust what you see or what you hear how do you know it is the truth?
A reader sent me a link that I looked at and this is the motivation of this rant.
You can no longer believe or trust anything to be real or can you?
Government propaganda machines around the world have been doing this for a long time, to get you to believe in something they want you to.
After all, can you really believe what you see on the news, on TV?
Take a look at this link and after you look at it, you will understand that everything we have been accepting as fact in our eyes can indeed be 180 degrees opposite.
Not a good warm fuzzy feeling.
Funny how we grew up believe things that were were taught. Lot of it was reinforced with visual aids.
The ad business in Mexico is catching up with the rest of the digital manipulators. A click here, a overlay there and viola, you have an end result.
So when you hear someone say, I saw it with my own eyes, which is a common saying, remember this link......

And you will see what I mean.
So the moral of the story is this year take a little time and think about stuff just a tad more......
