“Life would to be much easier if we could all be avatars, like in James Cameron’s film Avatar. We could leave our bodies and let our souls melt into an avatar’s body. We’d all look alike (and who could refuse the avatar’s athletic body) and speak alike, without any different languages, nationalities, beliefs, values, characteristics or classifications.””
Life would to be much easier if we could all be avatars, like in James Cameron’s film Avatar. We could leave our bodies and let our souls melt into an avatar’s body. We’d all look alike (and who could refuse the avatar’s athletic body) and speak alike, without any different languages, nationalities, beliefs, values, characteristics or classifications. It’s really tiresome being judged by others because you’re different, or because one person from the same classification has done something horrible. People are different, and we should learn to live with each other instead of building our lives on the bodies of others. In the end, we are all human beings with the same human rights. No one deserves to be looked down upon by others. Let’s be more understanding and educated. We should all learn and read more about the history and current life of others, and not allow anyone to tell us how to shape our thoughts and reactions. If you rely on media as your educational source, then you are allowing other people to shape your mind. Respect your mind and fill it with information from a pure source, a source that took years from a human life. The university library is full of these sources (and I did not even think about asking them to pay me for a commercial!). I lived and studied in my country for twenty years. I remember when a new student from another school or country came to our class. We began to whisper and question about her. She stood for a few minutes carrying her bag, looking around the class with lost eyes, wishing and hoping for a nice person to invite her to sit beside them. If she was lucky she would sit beside the nice person, but usually she will sit alone in the class corner. When my sister asked me how my first math class in the university was, I told her that I felt exactly as the new student who ended up sitting in the corner alone. This time I was the new student! Oscar Wilde said,Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. My Italian friend told me a nice story about how she used to pretend that she did not speak Italian when she went to Italy because she wanted to know what other people were going to say about her if they thought she was different. She said that other Italian kids said, bruta Americana which means ugly American, because she had pimples. The avatar’s world, Pandora, reminds me of a Utopia which is according to Sir Thomas Moore in his book, a name for an ideal community or society. The term has been used to describe both intentional communities that attempted to create an ideal society and fictional societies portrayed in literature. In both Utopia and Pandora, the human mind tries to find an imaginary world where he can live in instead of his own world. Is that because his own deeds made his world hard to live in? Or just because his own world is full of different people?
