“There are no private lives. This a most important aspect of modern life. One of the biggest transformations we have seen in our society is the diminution of the sphere of the private. We must reasonably now all regard the fact that there are no secrets and nothing is private. Everything is public.”
― Philip K. Dick

 

Would this really be true and privacy not a possibility than we would be on our way to being telepathic? How much effort do we put into our secrets, whether they be secret thoughts or resentments we don’t even want those closest to us to know or things we do that we’re ashamed of? In a world where privacy was truly lost, forgiveness would grow. How could we stand naked, all of our foibles extant and not forgive those of our neighbour? Yet still it seems with the fiction of privacy we all throw brick missiles from our glass towers, perhaps feeling in our primate way the need to find sins and secrets somehow worse than our own. This, then is the era of privacy diminished and shattered glass and many slivers will we each get before we lose shame and learn compassion. Perhaps we need to start clearing the fields now, live openly so that what is lost will never be missed.
Blessings, G
