♫ Hello boys and girls! ♪
So I realize I haven't been writing an incredible amount since I started blogging again... I have avoided that with pictures and videos. I'm going to just use words in this post, to even things out.
I'm not sure what I want to talk about. I know that the primary nature of the blog here used to be a humorous one, but I have felt less invested in humor of late, as you can all probably tell. I still think that humor has its place, and that it will return to the blog in full force at some point. Right now, due to the nature of my turbulent personality shift, I'm going to continue focusing on this concept of love that I have been prodding at. Just beneath that interest in universal and unconditional love are all of my old interests, which have all evolved in a way to become more... humanistic.
If any of you follow me on Twitter or are my friend on Facebook, you have probably noticed that I have increased my activity on those two social networks to a great extent. Those of you who have known me for a certain amount of time will recall that I have been (at the very least) on the fence about social networking on the internet. There have been times in the past when I have been completely down on Facebook and ready to delete my profile. Today I have found a resolute answer to my personal predicament with social networking: social networking is of paramount importance for the next few years of humanity's existence.
I have come to believe that the internet is probably a better place for a self motivated, tech savvy individual to educate oneself than anywhere else. I think that a big part of that "education" now is social networking.
Now, to be sure, Facebook and Twitter and Google + all have their various limitations and whatnot. But I have to say that my biggest beef with Facebook in the past was the "spammy" seeming posts that came from games or other in-site apps. And now that I have taken the time to block all of those things from my stream, I am really able to enjoy the stream of human consciousness occurring on my Facebook wall.
Speaking of "streams of consciousness," though, I have to explain to you guys how cool I think Twitter is now. I didn't realize how powerful a tool it really was. I have been using Twitter to search for terms of interest to me, such as "nuclear weapons," "world peace," and "Charmin Wet Ones." Then I have to make sure to go to the actual "full search" stream, as opposed to the "top tweets" list. What I have found is that this is literally like probing the common psyche of hundreds of thousands of people. I can find people who are, in real time, talking about my topic of interest. I can tweet @ them. I am making friends with common interests by being outgoing and deliberate in the way that I am using Twitter.
I find it weird how I used to view Facebook and Twitter, at various times, as these little groups of friends, and never as ways to meet new people. But, especially with Twitter, I find meeting new people easy and spiritually rewarding now.
It feels really good to explore different ways to push positivity out of me and into the world. I find the internet to be the most powerful tool for that. I think that it will both cause an intellectual revolution for people in my generation and the one following, and probably eventually unite us all so close to perfectly that we will attain a universal and shared sense of self-empathy. A kind of oneness of perspective.
I wonder how you guys out there go about meeting people who have common interests to you? Or do you? I know many people who seem to have enough people in their lives. I used to feel that at times, although I know for sure that I will never feel that way again. I will never stop wanting to meet the next person, until I have met and known them all.
What do you all think about Facebook/Twitter/Google + and whatever else? I have a Google + account now, but have not really used it at all. If any of you out there have Twitter and aren't following me, by the way, I'm @alkalibloo and you can friend me on Facebook with the link under my picture to the right.
I am interested in creating some more spiritual momentum, and right now I feel like meeting new people is the best way to do that. If you guys know anybody that likes really funny shit, attractive men in their mid-twenties, spiritual stuff, political stuff, or anything else, you should direct them here for me! I want to meet them! And I want to know more about all of you! If you would be more comfortable talking in private than here in the comments sections on the blog (the best places to discuss) you can e-mail me at will.
Let me give you all the short list of stuff that I want to talk about. Then everyone who reads this is obligated by my puppy dog eyes to leave me a comment and tell me what's up. Even if you think I'm a raving lunatic. :-)
- languages other than English
-any kind of music
-George W. Bush
-Near death experiences
-the board game "go"
-the meaning of life
Since we're going to live forever when the technological singularity turns medical science into the science of creating immortality, I should easily be able to meet most of the people that are my age or younger today. :-) ♡
Reach out to me! I need it! I love you all very much.
