Does Media Reflect us or are we directed by the Media ?!!

On of the comments that came o my latest post ”Trumpoline”  was this :

I know this was a very long time ago but I couldn’t write till now so I will explain my argument in this post why I think that Media directs the society and doesn’t reflect the society.

My first point is against TV shows and social media – can you name few things that you have and Idea about but actually you have never personally experienced ?

Movies and Media make you know a lot about things you will never experience in your life just think for a second if this things aren’t true means that most of your Ideas are not.

I mean like :

  • you think you know Muslims but maybe you don’t have any Muslim friends
  • Maybe you are an atheist because of what you hear about the evolution theory but most probably you never red the book
  • Maybe you believe in God’s existence cause of what you hear at church but yet you never red the bible yourself .
  • ChartsMaybe you think that USA is the greatest country in the word yet you never searched the reasons why and saw the statistics yourself

and the list goes on forever.

Media sells you the idea the you need to trust them because they are the experts so you listen to someone who knows how to use logic to sell his idea , charismatic , clever and uses few book references and scientific expressions and BOOM!!! you believe him and start living by his words , ever thought what if he was wrong ?

My second Point is for movies. They are made so well that they make you believe that whatever they present is true . Come on some people believe in Aliens because of movies but yet they never red a book about space.

Haven’t Most of us when we were young tried to do some karate moves after watching a martial arts action movie ?!

wait haven’t the children of today try to dance , wear , talk , act , think , etc… like their favorite movie stars

Is that something you would like your children to do or to learn ?

My third point is about Music and that would be a short one most of the top hits talk about sex, sexual desire, money , power and self love . Imagine that today’s teenagers when they are trying to be romantic they send a song called ” Am in love with the shape of you ” to the girls they love and surprisingly girls find it really romantic.

Girls today learn from songs that if they aren’t sexy they ain’t worth to be loved

Boys learn they if they dont have enough money and power sexy girls will never be interested in them

That’s why always the jerks are more popular.

and of course you must have noticed the sluttier is  a pop star  the more fans she gets again relating fame with sex and money .

That shouldn’t me a normal thing our children dance the same way .

Ask your kids what would they do if they got really rich and it will shock you.

the fear you fear to loose

We are all scared , everyone one of us felt fear before it is so common and repetitive that in a way it becomes a habit and like any other habit when you stop doing it you start feeling bad. Have you ever had the though that something bad will happen after having a really good day , have you ever worried about how tomorrow is going to be because of how good today was, sometimes even we start to fear loosing  after winning , fear dying in the day we really feel alive. we fear to loose fear cause we got really used to it.

To overcome this you need to focus on the NOW , the present moment nothing else not the past nor the future just be in the NOW with all your senses cause that’s the only thing you really have, past can’t be changed and the future doesn’t exist!

Yes it doesn’t and it is very simple  let’s say your have a meeting after 1 hour – The future – it doesn’t happen till you start the meeting – the NOW – if you couldn’t make it to the meeting due to any given reason so the future you knew changed as it didn’t exist from the beginning. the future is just an imaginary idea in your brain about what the next NOW would look like and when you imagine that something bad might happen you embrace fear , but if it is just an imaginary thought in your mind means you can control it , then make it a good one and a positive one , of course it won’t change something bad that might happen and it wont solve the problem but at least it will not make the NOWthe only thing you have the only fact that you know for sure – bad till what is going to happen happens and becomes the new NOW

when i think of this I think a doctor telling a patient that he is going to die after few days , so the patient starts getting scared thinking about that moment of death and how awful it would feel , starts regretting the things and decisions he made in the past , thinks if there is life after death he is so deep in the future and forgets the NOW he went to death before it came to him , I know anyway he will die being positive wont stop it but at least I would have made him enjoy the remainder of the time he had the NOW wold have been different.

Never sacrifice the NOW the only fact you know and have for a later NOW that you don’t know yet you will just loose both of them.

Today was yesterday’s future and will be tomorrow’s past , look at today and think about how you thought about it and planned for it yesterday and you will see my point.

it is nonsense to worry about things that doesn’t exist and future doesn’t as it exists only when it happens and if it happens it is NOW not the future .

If you want to really affect the future and make it the best it could be , there is only one way to do so i too really make the best of the present the NOW if you waste it on thinking and worrying you wont be able to get the best of it which would definitely hurt your future , that’s exactly how the fear of loosing becomes the reason you loose cause it uses your energy so it stops you from getting better

Live everyday as it is you last day , feel it was all your senses focus on the journey not the destination and you will be happier than ever and I assure you it will change everything.

Why I am ?

the biggest question that never left my mind , Why I am? why do I exist ? does life have a meaning ? do I have a purpose or do I just exist cause am an accident of the universe ?

The problem that this question can’t be answered individually I could never know why I am ? if i don’t know why we  are ?  us , the universe , nature and everything that exists . I have searched for answers in science , religion and philosophy and the result was that I had more questions I was never satisfied with any answer I found .

Scientists like to believe that all of the universe was an accident something came out of nothing and that kills the question why ? I mean if that’s the case then there is no purpose for our existence and if there is no purpose then there is no value so why should we care , why should we be good and how to decide what’s good ? believing that the whole universe is an accident leaves you with more questions to ask than answers you get.
religionsReligious People like to believe that God created everything with an intelligent design  and after that he created the rules of what’s good and what’s bad and for us to prosper we need to follow those rules and the purpose of life is to be good to go to heaven or be bad and get punished in other ways the purpose of life is to prove to God that you deserve to be in heaven. Well that gives more questions than answers as well and my biggest question of all why would God do all this to test us anyway we wouldn’t be here if he didn’t create us from the first place ?   but yet I always stop and think that maybe the problem isn’t the religion as it is the people and how they understand the religion and God.

 

thinker-at-the-gates-of-hell.jpgPhilosophers like to believe that everything is right and everything is wrong at the same time philosophy gives you a way to think but can’t give you an answer it shows you how to think and choose for yourself but can’t tell you rules or what’s wrong and what’s right cause it has many variables if you are very good and philosophy and logic you can convince the same people with two contradicting ideas at the same time and make them really confused I love philosophy but it never satisfy you with answers actually it makes you asking question like crazy.

 

quote-einI know that in this post I said what many of us think of and ask , some of us think about it some chose not too as it never ends and no one has answers but I believe that we are missing those answers cause we need all these three parts of life to come together the truth needs to use science , religion and philosophy to show itself to us we should forget the details and thinks about the bigger picture we wont have answers unless we mix science , religion and philosophy I thinks many of you would say that that is not possible and that it doesn’t make sense but actually I believe that it can’t be done by it is already happening we are made of these three combined . Each human being is made from science , religion and philosophy.

You think and learn by using the scientific method , you live by your own philosophy and you have rules that you live by depending on you own morale believes .

You and me we are a mix of all three so is the truth of our existence we can’t know it unless we combine all these three parts of life.

I believe that what science , religion and philosophy explain doesn’t contradict each other , it completes each other put that in mind and everything will start to make more sense.

 

 

Branding and the way it affects humanity

The Brand is in everything in your life your car , cloth , TV , phone and everything you use has a brand but did you ever stop and think what that is , does this make any sense ? does it really make a difference ? does it affects us ?

The way I see it is that branding was originally created to make the buyer know the manufacturer and some products were better than others so some brands started to have a value of their own that’s fair they produce better products so they deserve to sell more and be more valuable but the problem is the way branding is used today , it is used to identify us not to identify the product we buy, it is used to show our quality not the quality of the product and from here it affects all human beings and humanity and in this article I will try to explain how.

How the system of the world works makes money a very important thing as with it we can get our needs but yet with it we can be controlled as I talked about in my article The System of the World – Money  earlier , that system caused us to judge people with how much money they have cause we have been taught ( Programmed ) that the ones who are richer are more powerful , happier ( even if they are not happier but it always better to cry in a Ferrari ) , more successful and special, might be true for some and yet not for others  I mean drug dealers are wealthy right ? but anyway if you have money things become easier because people think like that , Imagine this you get to a club riding a cheap used car and wearing something that doesn’t cost much money – what are the chances of you getting in imagine going with a Ferrari well all doors will open .

Ferrari is a brand I guess you already know what am about tho say next , the Brand was created to identify  the product but it used to identify the person cause it shows your status , it gains you respect from the people who were taught – programmed – to respect the wealthy. So the one who has a Ferrari is not buying it because it is the fastest car ever , he buys it because it show us how much money he has so it gains him that respect he buys the car as a way to communicate with the rest of us that he can afford to have a Ferrari  and trust me company’s know that and they are using it very well . You can put what I say to the test look up the options available in any normal car and a Ferrari , you will find a lot of differences many things that a Ferrari can do a normal car can’t but if you are not living in a country that doesn’t have any traffic regulations and you are a very good driver you wont use any of this options and most of the Ferrari owners aren’t . Think with the same logic on any of the brands and you will see how it really fits ( the brands you will find that this logic doesn’t fit them it only means that they didn’t succeed to get there ).

The bigger problem that this culture is now presented in movies ,songs , TV shows and social media company’s are doing their best to make us more and more judgmental cause that’s what makes us want more of their products , think about this if you are sitting in a restaurant and someone who is homeless came and sat next you how would you react – and if this someone was wearing a Rolex how would you react  ? you don’t know both of them they are complete strangers and yet you react differently and feel differently the difference you know is how much money they both have – think about that! you see the one’s poorer than you  are approaching you to get some of your money but on the contrary the one’s richer than you are already taking it.  

Branding is a way to make us always want more and that makes us controllable by those who have what we want , we are free and yet we have chosen to live in a cage     what will be the good of millions of dollars if there were one brand of each product then we would all be equal then we wouldn’t want more , that will make us free and they don’t want this.

The Biggest problem that it started to be the same in kids , at school the guys who wears better is more popular and gains more respect just Imaging the future if kids automatically think in a judgmental way which branding really supports cause it makes you want their products . Teach your children that their value is in what they do not on what they wear or how much money they have – ask a child if he wants to be rich and when he says yes ask him why and the answers will dazzle you.

You are not the best person cause you are riding an expensive car , your cheap car is valuable cause it belongs to you – you give value to things not the other way around objects are useless unless man uses it , create memories with it and gives it value 

be proud of what you did not what you bought.
