Hollow men, Stuffed men

Good and a Bad examples shown on the media, are
often followed by people that are looking for someone
to emulate. These people can only see themselves through
the projections of a mirrored reality, and identify
themselves with stereotypes, think, act and behave like the
characters they are emulating. This is not a movie, this is real life.
The existence of such models, enables their clones to survive in a virtual reality in which diversity means isolation.
Once the Hero/mythical figure/ becomes a mental pattern,
( an actor, a singer, etc… ) then, they will incarnate it’s virtues
and vices, and run the external software or “ready made program”,
living in a virtual “someone else’s life”, and becoming living projections, as living Ghosts.

Here is a poem by Thomas S. Eliot

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar

Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;

Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death’s other Kingdom
Remember us — if at all — not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.


Eyes I dare not meet in dreams
In death’s dream kingdom
These do not appear:
There, the eyes are
Sunlight on a broken column
There, is a tree swinging
And voices are
In the wind’s singing
More distant and more solemn
Than a fading star.

Let me be no nearer
In death’s dream kingdom
Let me also wear
Such deliberate disguises
Rat’s coat, crowskin, crossed staves
In a field
Behaving as the wind behaves
No nearer —

Not that final meeting
In the twilight kingdom


This is the dead land
This is cactus land
Here the stone images
Are raised, here they receive
The supplication of a dead man’s hand
Under the twinkle of a fading star.

Is it like this
In death’s other kingdom
Waking alone
At the hour when we are
Trembling with tenderness
Lips that would kiss
Form prayers to broken stone.


The eyes are not here
There are no eyes here
In this valley of dying stars
In this hollow valley
This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms

In this last of meeting places
We grope together
And avoid speech
Gathered on this beach of the tumid river

Sightless, unless
The eyes reappear
As the perpetual star
Multifoliate rose
Of death’s twilight kingdom
The hope only
Of empty men.


Here we go round the prickly pear
Prickly pear prickly pear
Here we go round the prickly pear
At five o’clock in the morning.

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow

For Thine is the Kingdom

Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow

Life is very long

Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow
For Thine is the Kingdom

For Thine is
Life is
For Thine is the

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.


Some people identify themselves with these models and mores
at such a level that they become in fact professional copies.
Let’s see what researchers say about this: Do the Media Cause

Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia?

There is now considerable evidence that the media
influence body image in girls and young women.
Making the leap to the media as a major cause of
eating disorders is not yet possible, but, again, there
are several very suggestive studies that the media
may at least make a significant contribution, especially
in some susceptible young girls and women.
According to a recent meta-analysis of 66 studies,
body image disturbances seem to play an important
role in patients with anorexia nervosa or bulimia.

Young women who have eating disorders report that
magazines and newspapers have influenced their
eating habits and their concept of beauty.
In normal teens, just wanting to look like actresses or
models on television, in movies, or in magazines
doubles the risk of monthly purging. College
women who most “internalize” the cultural bias
towards thinness score higher on tests of body
dissatisfaction and bulimia.

The most powerful link occurred in a naturalistic
study on the Pacific isle of Fiji. Three years after
television was introduced onto the island, 15% of
teenage girls reported that they had vomited to control
their weight compared with only 3% before the introduction
of TV. Furthermore, the proportion of teen
girls scoring abnormally high on a test for disordered
eating doubled. After the introduction of TV, three
fourths of the girls reported feeling “too big or fat,”
and those who watched more TV were much more
likely to feel that way and to diet.

The Internet

For children and teenagers in the new millennium,
the Internet may be the most important of all media.
In recent surveys of teenagers:

● 82% reported using the Internet
● 75% believed that the Internet was very or somewhat
responsible for the Columbine shootings
● 44% said they had seen X-rated content
● Of the 1000 most-visited sites, 10% are X-rated
● Access to violent pornography has increased
● 12% reported finding a site where they could
access information about how to buy a gun
● 25% have visited a site promoting a hate group
● Many child-oriented web sites have advertisements
● 62% say their parents know little or nothing about
the Web sites they visit.

Few behavioral studies exist concerning the Internet,
but a number of recent studies document how children
and teens use the Internet and where potential for harm
exists. In one recent survey, 95% of all 15- to

….mmmh mmmh mmmmh
Not true, of course, these people perfectly know what they are doing,
and the amount of studies there exists. Their results, are immediately hidden away
as soon as they discover true numbers that could cause serious social concern.

Pornography. Sex on the Internet is a half billion dollar industry.

In a 2001 survey of more than 1200 youth, 70% of all
15- to 17-year-olds admitted to have “accidentally”
stumbled across pornography online.
Now they don’t stumble any more, they tumblr it.
Teenagers have always had more access to sexual content than their parents would have liked.

By age 15, 92% of boys and 84% of girls had seen or read
Playboy or Playgirl in one study, and 92% of 13- to 15-year-olds
report having seen an X-rated film. ( in 2001 of course… ) try to download a torrent and see what happens… then follow the naked-structions and please yourself…

The sheer volume of pornography on the Net,
the arcane diversity of it (eg, bestiality, rape,
and bondage), and the ease of access to it—within
seconds—makes Internet pornography a force to be
reckoned with. Research on older forms of pornography
and their impact on young adults seems to
indicate that purely sexual content is probably harmless,
but problems arise when sex is combined with
violence against women. Although there is concern
about Internet sexual content, to date there are
no studies that address this concern.

( I guess we should have a talk about these two concepts one day,
Force, and probably harmless… because i believe that there’s something
wrong in your vision, way of thinking and use of these concepts…)

mmmh mmmhh mmmhh
Again, hypocrisy, they protect themselves from being asked to
share or show their data and search results.

Sexual Solicitation. Data do exist concerning the
risk of children and teens being “recruited” online for
unwise meetings or sexual encounters. Using a national
sample of 1501 youth, ages 10 to 17 years, the

Youth Internet Safety Survey found that 19% had
received unwanted sexual solicitations online and that
25% of those youngsters had experienced emotional
distress as a result. Girls and boys who had conflicts
with their parents or who were highly troubled were
more likely to have online relationships. A smaller
survey of 213 private school students found similar
results. Finally, an online survey of 1234 18- to
24-year-olds found that those who go surfing for
sexual partners may be at significantly greater risk for
sexually transmitted diseases.

Once we realize, that example produces deviance, as well as many other conditionments, ( causes produce effect, and secondary side effects ), then, it is only a matter of conscience, common sense and will, the one to make things a little better.

The economical groups hiding behind “social assassinations”, who are committing “crimes against humanity”, in such a homeopathic way, will, one day, when social concern and social awareness grow, have to defend themselves from this kind of accusation.

Money isn’t all there is. We cannot expect them to build a better society, since they need a spoiled world to easily abuse of it. Let’s just follow the laws of harmony and find again the right path, since the ones that should take care about these matters, are working to maintain alive their past, into the present time, and miss the appointment with the future of what they are, as we can all see clearly.

Ants know, bees know, squirrels know, and snakes… don’t even chew,
but slowly swallow and digest their food. I’d rather be a porcupine.
Be wise. Wake up. Change your attitude.

It’s time to respect, share, give, and embrace diversities, beyond prejudice. With the help of variety, bio diversity and multiversal views, we will overcome conflicting dualism and the need of a justice solely based on rational binary thought.

Love comes first, who made you think that freedom is the highest of values?
And yet, you have a body to teach you, and depending on everything that enables you to live… you still behave as if you were invincible… mariners respect the sea…
