It seems as if this life here on earth is not enough anymore. It can’t contain us. The extremes are being tapped, the edges are being sought and the outer extremes exposed. Television shows animals killing animals. Hard to turn away from. Violent gang shows display ugly behavior as if it is somehow acceptable. Reality shows lower the common denominator for human behavior. Nonsense or extremes are promoted; each having a morsel of value, but the whole package somehow cheapens life itself. Sex videos are all over, UFO’s and the outer limits of all kinds are made familiar. A reasonable, questioning, contemplative life is replaced by a life that is dramatized and sensationalized. We are bursting out of the seams, needing something more, and these fixes keep us blinded.
