People strive for certainty. Even when they don’t know, they form a picture in their head of what it may be. The imagination may be quick to eradicate ignorance but bias remains extant.
Truth gets certified with perceived knowledge. Everything you know today is based on subjective experience combined with what others tell you to be true. Rumors spread so quickly that even their sheer possibility becomes absolute fact.
Seeing the world through your phone is like driving through a dark tunnel, an experience containing half of reality. What the brain can’t hear, see, smell, touch or taste, the screen fills in with an image that creates a vicarious experience. The mind is a series of pictures, a movie in the making.
