What is normal?
Normal is what we have been taught that is normal.
For example I was taught that normal is to have clothes that are not shabby (have big “holes” made in some places), because the shabby clothes mean that they are overused.
For me today is a problem when I saw people that has clothes with holes in them.
Maybe shabby is not a proper world, but I’m not a native English speaker and another world was broker, I can’t say about a cloth that is broken.
The new clothes that are in trend today, for my mind regarding what is normal, make me think that they are not normal for people that have money for new clothes.
This is because this is how my brain interprets normality, the education and my experiences affects what I can accept and what I can’t accept.
Movies are trying to change in our mind what is normal and what is not.
You may want to say that movies low our IQ if we watch to match at them.
Probably is a true thing, too much time for movies lowers our IQ, but in exchange they are preparing us for new things.
Changes in society are becoming faster with every year and we will probably have a huge shock if we aren’t prepared for them, we did not see them before in a movie or a book.
Reading books is better than watching a movie, books help the brain more, but books need more time.
You can’t read a book with 250 pages in 2 hours, time needed for a movie.
We saw the idea of a human to be put in a Sarcophagus in Star Gate and getting his health back and even coming back from the dead, if is used fast after the death.
Advanced technology probably will have something similar to heel us and most probably we will be less surprised and afraid if we saw that technology worked in movies.
But remember, in Star Gate repeated use of such technology had side effects, like megalomania and intense notions of superiority and the Sarcophagus could not heal serious brain damage.
If we could ask an old man, that lived 1200 years ago if the use of a Sarcophagus is normal, probably will say that if it’s not from his God, is not normal.
Today many parents buy for small children’s tablets.
So we started to see children that have 3-4 years on facebook, chatting.
Pedophiles used there actions against them by making them to make porn pictures.
Is this normal?
Of course not.
Only on a planet full of pedophiles that would be considered normal.
I hope you understood my explanation regarding what is normal and what is not.
