Pondering of the day

Is our media influenced by our societies or are we being influenced by media into making societies? It seems to me that fragments of our reality have broken into streams of fictitious augmentations – alternating between who we are, who we think we should have been, who we want to be but can never be and who we settle to be. In all this mess our individual reality is getting so diluted that it has become almost impossible to tell the difference.
