The white noise
Why we have begun replacing noise with noise to help us find silence
In the age of science, everything one does in one’s wakeful hours seems destined to harm one’s body, or harm the earth. When they discover time travel in the distant future, they will come back to get us for making the earth a cesspit with our littering, meat-loving ways. And you can’t even tell who ‘they’ will be: humans, robots or the things robots will create. Even if you manage to worry enough to keep your hands off any buttons that spell your imminent or future demise, bad news, the worrying will thicken and quicken your blood, and being awake will get you anyway.
