There was always a thought in Kia’s mind. Why every one do seem to forget about it. And their total oblivion about the control over their life. For them every day life is easier. The connection and information you have about everything is important and unbelievable. Even scarer sometimes It’s part of everyday use and its even part of who they are now.
He can see the confusion and disbelieve in their eyes even his. When they are without it. The matter in-fact, it consumes him with fear and confusion, with the sudden change with out it. Not being able to reach out, the total dependency on it and the disability to form attachemnet to a person and socialize as human being.
So,he goes back to the reality he and everyone have been familiar with for so long. The desire to see what he want to see in things and in people. For him it’s much easier to understand people around him with it.
The idea of being face to face with a person and talking to person and having intimate conversation have become an illusion to think or dream about. Everyone in his family are consumed with it. It’s one thing everyone have in common. Even if he lives with his family.
He can feel the very distance between everyone. Everyone in its own little bubble. Everyone together and connected, but yet isolated.
