Are we the last of the daydreamers?

A great read on the loss of time for ‘daydreaming’ by Adbusters. Highly recommended.

I fear that we are the last of the daydreamers. I fear our children will lose lack, lose absence and never comprehend its quiet, immeasurable value. If the next generation socializes more online than in the so-called real world, and if they have no memory of a time when the reverse was true, it follows that my peers and I are the last to feel the static surrounding online socialization. The Internet becomes “the real world” and our physical reality becomes the thing that needs to be defined and set aside.

Did you know there was an organisation that trains people to become ‘forest guides’ ?

Forests are the original antidote to stress and stress-related illness. Our species evolved in forests. We spent the first several million years of our existence in them. Then, a couple of millenia ago—in evolutionary time scale, only yesterday–our adventurous spirits inspired a global exploration. This morning we invented cities. A bit before the noonday break we became industrialized. Suddenly, while our genes are still living in the forest, our bodies live in the busy, stressful conditions of modern civilization.
