Mind Creation

To be human at any level has changed.
The Web ecosystem places the individual's mind directly onto the human stage and now all individuals can collaborate, their private thoughts entering into the space of digital humanity. And now we can observe the behavioral madness that has always existed around us.

Our mind is our private domain.
Sometimes we rule and hold the scepter; sometimes we are the slaves of our own mind's creation. Whatever may be the case, the thoughts that we care about the most are almost always with us. We have "privileged access" to the contents of our minds.

Web 2.0 has started a new revolution. Within a fraction of a second, everyone can reach out to many other minds in real time. On the digital stage in view of an online audience, we can create life or commit suicide. The pieces or parts of minds create the power of many and the net defeat history like an endless stomach of the beast that can save our tracks forever.

Psychologists have only seen a glimpse of humanity; but now they can play in the sands of our minds throughout digital space. Nothing is virtual anymore. What was virtual has now become part of our reality; part of who we are.

We used to observe body language in order to help us understand. But what we physically saw was never enough to touch. We were always aware of the wires running beneath our skins. These threads were what made us who we were; they were what we had to control or change in order to become what we called a "better" person. Now we are naked and finally we understand that this is the best suit and that it fits all of us.

Our lies, truths, beliefs, feelings – everything that makes us who we are – we can now throw away and walk naked for all to see us as we really are.

In the digital age, our psychoanalyst is the data mining system that observes our click streams and figures out our thoughts, feelings, interests, passions, loved ones, our friends – all those out there in the digital atmosphere. The truth about us has yet to be realized.

There has never been a greater time to be a human being.
