Connected but separate – What has not been said about Facebook? That is the most successful social network in the world, which has a theoretical value of about fifteen billion dollars, which consists of millions of browsers worldwide, the company Microsoft paid $ 240 million for a share of 1.6% of site and the list goes on … But behind the numbers, success and pompous words, highlights a small but not simple question: Why? Why prefer to manage our social relationships through text messages, emails and Internet games, rather than go out and meet in the real world? Facebook is no doubt, as “hot” that exists today on the Net All attached friends, play with new applications, ride and lower images are photographed, they know and what does that do? Many users admit to be completely addicted. Could it be that Facebook serves a real social need is just another easy way to escape from reality to a fantasy world, where one can have tens or even hundreds of friends, a more beautiful world of entertainment, where photographs are retouched and presented flawlessly, a world where there is no ( for now) social conflicts? “Unity” We are pressing human beings and we like to stroke our egos by showing the world how beautiful, capable and intelligent we are and what we have lot of friends. See and be seen. The social network provides an excellent setting to do just this. See everyone at the same time we see the best way possible to be more grandiose than life, with beautiful pictures, be praised, to be courted, strong interest that may hide a real need: to be united However, to understand the essence of the connection between us, we must know its root. Imagine that at a time, we were all together in one system, a kind of body composed of countless cells that maintained in an ongoing relationship and mutual.

At one point in the process of creating reality as we know it today, this body is fragmented into many parts. With the break we lost that sense of mutual respect between us creating within us, among other things, a sense of emptiness that he has done that since then we are looking for substitutes to that sense of wholeness that once experienced. In fact, social systems we have created, at its root, unconsciously seeking to restore that lost relationship. That old memory that brings us back to our roots The main protagonist, responsible for the separation between different parts of the system, the ego, which took the center stage in recent centuries has been increasing gradually its power. Nowadays, the ego is reaching a new record and it seems that beside the impressive development that leads us, is digging a deep chasm in our hearts, destroying thoroughly all kinds of warm human relationships that we had. The ego makes us feel that we depend on others to meet our needs, drives us to abuse them and use them, but when others fail to benefit, the move away from our life without looking back. In other words, we can not stand the fact that we need from others, forcing us to stand united against our will. This union is pushing us and we even anguish. Therefore, we seek ways to resist and refuse this connection that envelops us all together and they will anyway have to come back eventually.
