I’m Back. I lost my connection for a prolonged period of time, yet again.
Losing internet connection for a 21st century kid like me is a real pain. For people stuck with Philippine ISPs, it’s to be expected.
December 27, 2011 – I turned my modem on as I always do, only to find out that I have no internet connection. This lasted until January 4, 2012. That’s 9 days of serious mental distress and emotional anguish. To put it lightly, the experience was like that of an infant being separated from his mother. Okay, that may have been overly dramatic. Or is it?
For a shut-in like me, being disconnected from the rest of the world raises some philosophical questions too; Do I really exist?
“If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”.
This famous philosophical thought experiment dwells on the existence of an object even if there is no one there to experience it. Oh what joy it is to once again be connected to the rest of the world in the only way I know how.
