"Serial Experiments Lain"

I present to you,
The wired.
This is something that was shown to us in an anime; Serial Experiments Lain.
The wired was nothing more than the internet, a network.
That was all.

Part of the its resemblance was about the line between the real world and the wired being blurred, and broken.
People who existed in the real world and on the wired...
No longer existed in the real world.

While it is unlikely that a dead person can use the wired,
Our the internet in this case, you must admit is becoming fused with the world of the wired.
Look at us.

"Everybody is always connected."
This is true in in every thing it means.
While not everyone has a mobile or internet,
The fact is, that when they get one,
They are connected,
And they never escape the fact that they'll never be able to disconnect.

All of you,
Are connected to the wired,
Whether you like it or not,
You always will be,
No matter where you are,
Or what you do.

The world is still evolving, technology too.
A time will come when the lines between the wired,
And the real world are so blurred,
That even a normal person won't be able to tell the difference.

The line is already blurring,
Look at yourself,
You are already being submerged inside this new reality.

People have become overly dependent on the net.
I myself already am.
Lain's world, inside of there,
Anything she wants becomes infinite,
Yet the anime is about a lonely girl who is looking to find her place and purpose in this pointless world.

People will always avert reality and substitute it for fiction and fantasy.
Drugs, alcohol and other such vices have been around much longer than the internet.
Most people use them in order to get away from reality and run away from their true selves.

The anime only shows us a possibility of what can be,
And we are on our way to such a possibility.
How many people, in your daily life,
Can you name who don't have a mobile phone now?
Most people are already connected.

While escaping reality is a part of this,
It is something the wired can never give us.

This reminds me Akira and Matrix, I'll see this anime *already downloading*

You wrote in poethic way, I liked it a lot, you told a reality, not too happy but it's true...
(long time I don't see poems)
