My Thoughts Spelt Out

A Modern Monologue


A modern monologue based on the quote from Plato:
“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation!”
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. 
How true is this even in this time and age of internet supremacy – Chatting, instant messages, text messages are not adequate to convey the essence of a person. (because it is convenient to cheat on these mediums….) We are still dependent on our senses; touch and sight to truly understand a stranger. (because we know that the person on the other side is not expressing his/her true self, lack of trust maybe…) I question the progress we’ve made as occupants of this planet called earth. (watch the FedEx ad; then you’ll know we “have” progressed…) We discovered the way to touch base with the moon, but yet we are so reliant in our GOD given senses to fully figure out a being. (Isn’t writing, chatting etc too results of “abstract sense”? If not how could you quote Plato’s words, which you never heard “in-person”!!) Why can’t the millions of jargons, lingos & lexis that we use to converse over the phone or when we meet in the flesh be evidence for the unfeigned you or me? (because of the gene… it moves very carefully not to miss a “potential” mate, relationship or some form of benefit from the other party) Why do we need fondling of the senses to comprehend our soul? (because some people like to touch & feel (heart related stuff), and some work with their head (mind related ones)…) Hmm, did Plato mean “physical” contact when he said “play”? (Hmm… now you are talking gay!!!) LOL
