For several years now, I have chosen not to watch television or listen to radios. Everything I want to find, as well as many pleasant surprises, can be found online.
Now, when I am confronted with the garishness and loudness of so many broadcasts, I immediately wish to escape them. I refuse to purchase anything from a shop or eatery if the noise from loudspeakers there is too aggressive. Either there is widespread deafness in society or an unfortunate insensitivity.
Meeting my needs in a calm, quietness environment is often difficult to achieve. Most people appear to be unaware of the benefits of broadcast-free living.
I often like to imagine I can find a space within my mind as vast as the Mundi Mundi Plains, especially on a Monday.
How do you make the space for your mind to think for itself?
Do you live without television, without radios and without broadcasts of any sort?
