How do we read faces nowadays and to what features and details we pay attention to? Light, shadows, color of the light, background, skin and shape of the face, youthfulness, freshness and an outgoing fun feeling. Who looks like fun, some use the word sassy. Women are obsessed with the shape of the face, that nothing is hanging, fat or loose, everything is taped, you can put tape on your neck, under you tits. Wrinkled, spotted, off, uneven, bulging, even pores are too much, lips are too thin in comparison to someone else’s. Envy is pretty rampant. Any kind of abnormal spot is hideous and must be erased. Roundness is a hint of fat. Still natural beauty isn’t much, faking the natural is the it thing. There is fake everywhere. Fat should be in the right place, nature places it all over one’s body. Now we see color of the skin to the extent white is evil. Black can do whitefishing but whites can’t do blackfishing. What a battle with visuals and owning what nature has made. Who owns a fat ass owns it, but blonde hair is just color, but it can be added just like fat. It is difficult enough to deal with human mind. Somehow you always do wrong, but to add complete manipulation of the image and how that reflects to the real world and what happens there outside the virtual world, when we live much in the virtual and madeup.
We distrust heavily, what we see online, adults I mean. It is a mere matter of survival and knowing how and what. Deceit is normal since there is so much to gain with deception and lying. Dangers are really how fakes are seen, maybe we answer with deceit back, deceive the deceiver and steal or just to bully, which is fun for many and create drama, which is a business. Study the deceiver and the methods used online. Human face needs quite a lot of grooming and the space we are in needs adjustment to look good online, that is what we want, to look good and wealthy. Anything you show is judged, therefore why not play with it. We like to play and do gimmicks. Images of people that are not manipulated at all somehow are the most interesting. She is there as she is and we do read the face immediately with our biases and using only biases which are always there, funnily yes. Being afraid of what people think is a real fear since thinking we know works in the world and thinking it doesn’t because we are open-minded now is naive. Strangely millions of years of evolution got quicker and we are altered to a better species. Accepting and humaine, as we say of the good people, which sudden change is truly fascinating in some sense. It’s a miracle like everlasting youth. You can obviously do bad things, but don’t get caught, is the tune of the day like always. Slowness and messiness become more intolerable as the virtual moves so fast. Thinking how would we deal with not having the internet?
