Where are you on the internet food chain?
We all learned from a young age what the food chain was. We as humans are on the top of the food chain. I am sure every one when they saw the food chain they wanted to be on top.
Because in the game of life it is always better to be the eater and not the eaten.
So what about the internet? Is it always better to be the consumer or the producer?
Grass is the ultimate producer. Giving us life via oxygen, then starting the bottom of the food chain. Because here comes the harmless little rabbit. Eating the grass thus giving him life more abundantly. Until the big bad wolf comes along and eats the rabbit.
So in this story, everyone always wants to be the big bad wolf. No one in life wants to be eaten.
Not so fast…
As Lee Corso would put it “not so fast…” The problem with the pyramid that we teach to children, and for the most part all things we teach children, is a big ‘ole lie.
Christopher Columbus didn’t set sail to prove the world was round. Humans didn’t evolve from apes. We use more than 10% of our brain. The great wall of China cannot actually be seen from space.
So I will explain these lies in a different color text so if you want to skip it and get to the point you can:
- The world could be proven to be round by the Pythagorean theorem which was invented in about 500 BC
- Science tells us that humans evolved from a human-like ancestor. Well, apes evolved from an ape-like ancestor. I am not a scientist but basically, at some point, there is believed to have been a common ancestor. So that is why apes and humans can exist. Because they are both the strongest form of a distant ancestor.
- If you believe you don’t use 100% of your brain try to only function with 10% of it. It isn’t pretty. In fact, you can’t. Even slight brain injuries are life-threatening.
- Really? Why did we even tell kids this? Most of the time we lie to kids because the truth is too difficult to explain, but this isn’t even a half-truth. The Great Wall of China is long but not wide. It is about 30 feet wide, which would be like saying you could see a Starbucks from space.
Glad you are back.
So what lies were you told? Grass is a producer? Grass is a consumer! Where do you think all the rainfall goes AND let’s not forget the sun’s light it consumes.
I know what you are thinking!
THE SUN!!! I WANT TO BE THE SUN! IT IS A HUGE BALL OF FIRE! The wolf doesn’t seem so special anymore. When you think about the fact nothing can have life if the sun goes away.
The Ultimate Internet Producer
I have made my decision this week. I dropped my amount of internet consumption (less browsing, more working!)
My goal is to produce content on a daily basis for the internet to consume.
