LOOK BACK ON SOME OF THE THINGS YOU MOST RECENTLY LIKED...
The objective of this reflective scenario is too inject value back into the act of validating content online. This seemingly harmless act of arbitrary liking online has furthered abstracted what is authentic and meaningful on the internet. By reclaiming it we can begin to reclaim the real online. Isn't that what we all want from the internet anyway? To feel listened too?
"We considered Hegel's idea that we need other people to achieve individuality. For others to play this role for me, they have to be available to me in an unmediated way, not via a representation that is tailored to my psychic comfort. And conversely, I would have to make myself available to them in away that puts myself at risk, not shying from a confrontation between different evaluative outlooks. For it is through such confrontations that we are pulled out of our own heads and forced to justify ourselves. In doing so, we may revise our take on things. The deepening of our understanding, and our affections, requires partners in triangulation: other people as other people, in relation to whom we may achieve an earned individuality of outlook"
