Hey I feel you, you aren't alone in going through this. It was really scary to see mass computation happen, so disturbing how very few people understood that it was a new kind of aggressive colonization, an invasion in every sense of the word. Most of North America and Europe are probably hyper real now lol.

We are moving from disciplinary institutions to a holistic system of surviellance and control, a global panopticon with wealthy psychopaths at the center and I'm so fucking scared too.

I hope you have found some ways to deal with the alienation of living outside what is basically a mainstream hyper reality.

Don't be too lonely, you're not the only one :)

to me it's just a natural continuation of writing. the textual revolution was the beginning of modernity imo.

I no longer live permanently in a city, and have a couple really good friends, along with a supportive partner. I stay away from technology as much as possible most of the year and it all helps a lot. Much happier than I used to be years ago.
