妳 想 要 的 沒 有 得 到
我 不 是 眼 淚 的 容 器
我 想 要 的 沒 有 出 口
妳 不 是 靈 魂 的 容 器
2023, you and I, in the convergence of the river of consciousness and the sea of the internet.
The connection between two girls; the story of decrypting the Lateral Thinking Puzzle
This is an illusion that can only be seen when you and I are both present. 〔flower_0.38：^_^〕
Facial nerves growing on the faces of the internet
Up until 2023, social interaction has rapidly shifted from the corporeal realm (including the five senses and through language) to the internet. Before "modern people" manage to discern the connection between their internet identities and their physical ones, they started developing "internet senses," which have led to the growth of "internet muscles."
The New Mirror Born through Digital Living
Amid the interaction of "the self in the mirror × social media," the self of "modern people" have formed illusory self-understanding that is rooted in "presentation: the imagination in the eyes of others," "imaginary judgment: the results of imaginations and judgment," and "subjective explanation: results from repeated judgment and self-understanding," internet identities that exist outside of contacting others directly. This social phenomenon of "mirror reflection" has led to new digital understandings of the world: people have become accustomed to speech played at faster speeds, faces that have been added with filters have become the norm; people can even engage in group behaviors through entirely fictitious identities. This social inertia has led to people becoming unaccustomed to participating in "offline" social interactions.
〔Huang Jing-Yue: How are you?〕
A bright screen in a dark room. The bright fluorescent light and faint whispers.
Everyday stories that occur offline intertwine with the blurry, virtual dynamic online narratives. The scenario is like the illusory scene in Perfect Blue (an animated psychological thriller directed by the renowned Japanese animation director Satoshi Kon and premiered on August 5, 1997), the online and offline worlds in continuous reflection.
What you want you did not get
I am not a container for tears
What I want, there’s no way out
You are not a container for your soul
Recently, I have been experimenting with going to bed early and exercising. However, even if I take sleeping pills at twelve-thirty and wake up at eight-thirty, I am not ready to change into human form even after I have made my coffee and taken a deep breath. However, I have managed to live in a state that resembles being human.
Change is required, right?
Hey, you said I make too many excuses, blaming this and that; that's why I feel lonely, always thinking something is missing. I guess you're right, but it's too late. All I can do is find a perfect way to trick myself.
