    —such as this— than you think. The inevitable, and inescapable fact that we're all alone in these fanciful worlds in which we personally construct—where our most private covets aren't barred by any kind of boundaries—has since time immemorial been the de facto root of our insignificant complex; our reason for the fecund creations, and recreations, of ourselves, our ideal life, and our beliefs. This ambitious urge to have others share our homespun contrivances'—for an ideal life— become ever more so real with the readily available out-let of the internet. The mere thought of others sharing our views would galvanize even the most dullest of individuals to tirelessly toil in the pursuit to realize this artistic identity. The sheer anonymous existence—presumed safety, and privacy—is conducive to allowing us the ability to publish our enthusiasm in a gradual sharing of our personal lives with others—whom we self-evidently consider 'most like us'—in order to get the admiration that stimulates, and encourages even more participation. The participation ultimately comes to a gradual end with the shift in culture— steadily deviating from what used to be a conveniently suitable venue for many to interact with, now threaten by the intruding influx of more lonely folk— mirror images of ourselves. God—our biggest mirror image—only you can save us now." —unknown: Anarcho-utopia
