While at the pub last night I was people watching and the music was loud and I think it was loud to try and drown out the sound of people talking. Looking around the room there were over 100 people, all constantly talking to each other. The whole room was in constant chatter.
Walking around town today it was the same…people in a constant state of communication. It struck me how people are like social sharks. It's almost as if people stopped communicating with each other, even for a minute, they'd die. Peace and quiet would stagnate in their social gills depriving their brain of much needed gossip and small-talk, eventually leading to a complete shutting down of the body as blood and oxygen simply isn't enough to sustain them.
Like a blind man wonders what "green" is I'd be lying if I said I didn't wonder what it must be like for these people. Normal people. I wonder what pleasures they get from communication, I wonder how talking to people makes them feel. Although it's nothing I'll ever know so I try to not waste too much time pondering.
