An interesting thing about dreams is that every individual is supposed to have a unique dream, right?
Today, we are facing extreme massification of individuals – our clothes, our pass times, our world views and even our dreams are the same. For a few this may seem a good state of affairs, but I find such a situation quite disturbing. As human beings we have this inherent urge to be unique, we want to be defined by our own individuality; back in school I remember the coolest kids were those who had the ‘attitude’ – these individuals were truly unique. And I wanted to be unique in my own way. Being unique was my dream.
Now, cool is defined by what you own – it has been disconnected from who you are – and now, everyone dreams of having certain accessories: ipod, nike shoes, gap hoodies, etc. and that they think will make them unique.
This is a sad state of affairs, we have truly lost creativity and individuality to an extent that even our dreams wont be able to define our individuality.
