Google Search & Identity Crisis
It used to be, years ago, that people would suddenly discover the need to “find themselves.” They would then go off and study various religions and spiritual practices.
Maybe even join a cult.
The point is: they knew that somewhere out there they would come to find themselves.
Today, we have Google.
I searched for myself on Google today, but I was nowhere to be found.
I guess I don’t exist.
Philosopher Rene Descartes once famously said, “I think, therefore I am.” Today it would probably instead read “I’m in Google Search Results, therefore I am.”
