Fire is a flame which creates heat. This heat helps people survive and allows us to live in a simple society. But is our society really that simple? I believe that the World we live in is much more complex then it has ever been before.There are so many people in the World today that everyone’s past experiences, which characterize who they are, become so different that people’s minds are in completely different places and we have no idea. 

I have noticed that by moving from Massachusetts to Colorado, I have experienced interactions with many different people who live in a completely different environment then my hometown. It is sometime hard to communicate with another person who lives in a “different world” then yourself. 

Ross Ulbricht, a 29 year old was recently arrested for being the founder of the Silk Road (Online Black Market). But Ross Ulbricht kept this a secret for a very long time. “To his housemates, he was simply “Josh,” a quiet guy who joined them through Craigslist, kept to himself and spent full days buried in his laptop”. “Josh” lived a completely fake life and no one had any idea. This shows that Josh’s brain was on a different mind set then the people he was living with. 

The drug industry is a huge concept in our complex society. The advanced technology, which most people posses, have changed our society for the worse. And we can’t do anything about it. In many ways our Earth is dying and I believe that humans have corrupted our World into a completely different place then we are supposed to be living.
