Evade Reality ...

Hi, readers of @adsactly

Every day there are more electronic devices, sites and applications that offer us virtual reality. In principle, virtual reality was created to help us visualize elements, spaces to which we did not have access; but with the passage of time, virtual reality has ceased to be an exclusive tool for education, medicine, architecture and training, to be present in the daily life of the human being. The creation of an unreal world, but possible, makes us maintain expectations and even forget about our environment, which can be insubstantial, demotivating and even unbearable. But to what extent can this be helpful?

For example, it seems illogical that a pioneer generation in telecommunications will find it so difficult to communicate with each other personally. It is strange that an expert generation in creating video game characters, that makes avatars, that develops lives in parallel and obstacle-filled worlds, cannot overcome the great inconvenience of maintaining a personal relationship or communication with another living being. Moreover, I know thousands of young people (and not so young) that reality frightens them, that they are held in their computers or cell phones as a way to get away from the society that surrounds them. Hence, suicide is currently related to the lack of socialization of the human being: it is harder for human beings to face reality every day.

These days I was reading a story by the Polish-Venezuelan writer, Krina Ver, Benjamin and the treadmill, who comes to corroborate what she said earlier. The story is about a middle-aged man named Benjamin, who due to his state of health, the doctor recommends walking. Benjamin's frequent walks through the city are interrupted by the danger he may run outside, so he decides to buy a walking or “treadmill” device. From that moment, we see how Benjamin, every day is isolated from the outside world to remain isolated in the exercise room, walking in the apparatus:

With a secret excitement, Benjamin stroked the key in his pants pocket and could not wait to restart his workout. Now he walked several times a day and every time he locked himself in more time with the treadmill.

At the end of the story, we observe that what Benjamin seeks with permanent exercise is to escape from his family, his wife and children. The room and the treadmill become a refuge and escape element, so you are always in the room training. But in an attempt to escape from all reality, Benjamin runs so frantically on the treadmill that he has a heart attack. In this way, Benjamin dies looking to avoid the reality in which he lives.

In Venezuela, for example, we are going through a unique crisis, never experienced by another country. Daily we live experiences that crush us and that make us want to have wings and fly away or be Benjamin to run and escape. Personally, I have discovered that writing, reading, drawing and even having a beer makes me de-stress. I feel that the idea is not to isolate or evade reality, but to find ways to "dose" it. We cannot run away from daily problems, nor deny them or be indifferent to them; you have to face them and find a solution, without stopping living other things. We have to be aware that we will only change the negative things in our life if we act to change it: an adverse situation will always be adverse if we do not face it.

Escaping from reality is unfortunate because it increases as more social networking sites, the relationship is clear and the result is autism , thanks for this artical because it addresses the condition of our society .

These days I was reading how excessive internet use was causing loneliness, lack of communication and lack of confidence in young people. Thanks for your comment!

Very current issue. I think that more people are choosing to find some way to avoid their daily problems.
In our case, I see more people spending time in malls, for instance, even if they have no money to spend. With the help of friends and relatives who send money from abroad, some people are using that money to cover recreation expenses. Saving money have becomes as pointless as getting involved in politics, so "what the hell", I guess is their mindset.

I agree with you, @hlezama! In Venezuela it is normal to see that the big shopping malls are very crowded, the liquor stores, the beaches. I imagine it's a way to avoid trouble. Greetings!

Thank you @adsactly for another great article. We all want to be Benjamin now and again. I imagine this is so with respect to any land where there is such strife. Thank you for adding more awareness to Venezuela.

Yes. At some point we've been Benjamin, the ostrich that hides its head, the snail that hides in its shell. We avoid reality, sometimes out of irresponsibility, but also out of mental health. Thank you for your comment!

@nancybriti

Thank you for your response. I agree. It's essential to have stable mental health, so escaping reality is vital from time to time.

@scholaris

Relevant reflection, @nancybriti. Although I suppose that the evasion of reality is an almost natural impulse of the human being (perhaps that's why psychoanalysis has said that we can't live with so much reality), in our time (and more so in Venezuela) we resort to it almost as a mechanism of psychological prevention. The current world has also created hyperrealities as a way of eluding or neutralizing the concrete, unavoidable reality, as if the saturation of reality produced the opposite effect: its annulment. Greetings.

Interesting point, @josemalavem. Personally, I think that virtual reality can help us experience things that we might never be able to live. Perfect! What it can never do is replace "real" reality. Hugs
