"Violence in its many forms is an involuntary quest for identity..." -Marshall McLuhan

Broken Brain Boy,
why must thou bubble & boil
over bogus hocus pocus?
Perhaps that dumb-phone made you lose thy focus? Poor Broken Brain Boy typing on his brain toy, stoically replies through the scrying screen.
What is disturbing about manufactured discontent: It justifies the police state (for all the wrong reasons). This new era of black mirror violence (social media madness) may be the end result of people living the television myth. If you speed up the fractured and framed identities which appear on television, you get black mirror violence, where average people mobilize around trending information that moves at the speed of light through the computer screen. The mainstream (corporate information guard) perspective may be juxtaposed against the user-generated message creating dialectical conflict that appears in the stream and streets as tribal passion.
Information abundance and the rapid succession of ideas reinforce rudimentary pattern recognition, as the human intellect grapples with the wave of algorithmic thought. Nonetheless, the stream's current may be flowing so fast that humans end up coping with their noospheric conditions (milieu), implementing and role playing each real-time reaction. The problem with our real-time calculations, Deep Blue versus Garry Kasparov established our cognitive limit. In other words, the computer (by design) will always be a few steps ahead of human calculation and therefore we are at the mercy of the algorithm. In the stream or in the street, protestors primed by identity become primitive entertainment continuously obsolesced by the next wave of information.
Design the future, release the past, control the present.
