been here before? get your daily 90 second relaxation exercise here →
communication with the quiet place will be operated via the [spacebar] key.(gently squeeze that key, now.)
in order to get the full experience, please silence your phone(s), turn on your speakers and press the [f-11] key or [cmd+shift+f] on mac.(again, [spacebar] to continue.)
seriously. silence your phone(s). it's pointless otherwise.(seriously. seriously. seriously. don't worry - this is *not* one of those places that scare the shit out of you.)
welcome to the quiet place.
in the quiet place, there are no caps*(*letters that are all big and yell at you)
also, there are no facebook notifications...
...or twitter...
...google+...
...foursquare...
...email...
...messenger...
...etc...
...etc...
...etc...
...
wow.
have you ever noticed how many things require your attention?
you're probably thinking about all the great notifications you are missing right now...
try to be patient.
just for a couple of minutes.
just to clean your head for a while.
i can assure you that you are not missing anything important that can't wait.
and if you are worried, i can sum it up for you.
some “friend” you don't know made a silly observation about something that recently happened.(or made a comment about a silly observation that you wrote about something that recently happened)
you think that this is all a big joke, right?
a joke about what became of you humans?
well, in every joke, there is a grain of truth.
and the truth is that with all these great (so-called) social services, we forgot something along the way.
we forgot to take a break from time to time...
...a real break.
a walk in the park or a vacation in the mountains can be so sweet...
but if you keep taking your phone with you, you haven't really accomplished anything.
you keep burdening your mind with all of those meaningless little things.
meaningless. little. things.
meaningless.
little.
things.
...a friend made a comment about your post...
...a friend liked your link...
...a friend shared a video with you...
...a friend checked in...
...a friend invited you to a party...
...a friend this...
...a friend that...
...a friend...
...a friend...
...a friend...
meaningless.
little.
shit.
...
...
...relax...
...for 30 seconds...(don't do anything else. you can do it. really. you won't die. it's just 30 seconds.)
...feels great, doesn't it?
:)
i'm going to say goodbye soon.
and let you get back to your notifications.
but before that, i just want to give you some advice.
from time to time...
...stop everything you do...
...and go to your quiet place.
...
goodbye.
