Be watchful of what you do. Be mindful of what you think. For, there’s someone watching you from above, tracking all your actions and thoughts.
Sounds so familiar!
But, many a time, such alerts fail to get their traction on the human psyche, ’cause, no one is able to construct a mathematical sequence between people’s actions and their corresponding reactions.
But, those naive moments are passé.
The contemporary and modern technological gods are quantifiably more powerful. They’re equipped with Big Data that captures and stores every little digital move of ours.
All thanks to us the cyborgs who voluntarily – and sometimes even compulsively – digitize almost all of our actions, thoughts, wishes and desires at all possible rendezvous joints such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, Amazon et al.
Now, these capture zones help the gods define our personalities, choose us for specific actions, control all our subsequent moves, and ultimately seal our destiny.
Sounds like a fantasy, I know.
But, sample Jerry Shaw (Shia LeBouf) and Rachel Holloman (Michelle Monaghan) in this absolutely hair-raising, edge-of-the-seat, goose-bumpy film EAGLE EYE, having Steven Spielberg playing the role of Executive Producer.
You’ll know that it’s not a fantasy movie you’re watching, but a contemporary, digital mythological film carrying a strong ‘moral of the story’.
Be aware and watch all your digital actions. For, there’s – really – someone who’s watching you right now. In real terms. And, contemplating whether to make you the next Jerry or Rachel.
