Throughout the majority of my life, the internet has been an essential tool in which I have been made aware of a myriad of perspectives perceiving the world at various levels. The eventual assimilation of such experiences which is my perpetual journey of knowledge is the fastest and least expensive way to gain insight into everything from my home to every continent and ocean. Other than what other people say and write on the world wide web, images and videos of geography; and architecture; and the organisms living within are available to learn about. Truly, the internet is a marvel of human innovation as well as a tool of exploration into billions of moments never to be lost to forgotten memory or the destruction of physical works. Without the internet, so much information would be unavailable to me or anyone for that matter that my perspective would likely be much different. In contrast, the great amount of education and fun which may be gained, and experienced that I feel like a pioneer in exploration in my own way. That is because there exists the possibility of gaining awareness of new ideas, events, and people on every continent and every ocean around the earth in less that one hour. Not long ago, that time frame simply was not possible for humanity which was before my life began.
Inside my home is a digital window to the world. From the Challenger Deep to satellite images of my world from the thermosphere and a long range imagery via the Voyager 1 spacecraft, I can see much of what this planet is. I have researched every kingdom of organisms both in academic settings and as a hobby that has been a great cause for my gradually increasing fascination by the life that exists all around me. Macroscopic and microscopic viewpoints all for a more holistic sympathetic awareness of plants, animals, and my own body. My exploration continues day by day and increases in kind.
Before I was on the internet, I had video games and thanks to the internet, I now possess the knowledge to enroll in a particular major and make them myself. From the Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System to modern games such as Battlefield 4 on the PlayStation 4 as well as other current generation hardware, video games were and continue to be a great source of entertainment. Also, they offer unique perspectives on religions, mythologies, and cultures. A goal of mine is to contribute to the lore the video game genre construes and the net is in part how I am going to accomplish that. Via official and third party websites, these stories are perusable of my volition thus my virtual adventures can continue even when I put my controller away and communicate using other channels. The extraordinary aspect of all this is that intercontinental conversations can occur through text, voice-only, and webcam feeds quickly. The enormous amount of things I have been exposed to through my initial interest in video games on the internet is astounding.
Although there are many parts of my world the availability of the internet has provided perspective upon, the one I wish to focus on now is something I realized is a very pressing issue due to the reality of increasingly international cultures. It is perhaps the most vital component that humanity needs to improve on as we do so. That one thing is: working together. Each individual who gets on the internet is capable of anonymity and because of that the inhibitions social settings usually keep maintained have not been as relevant as in face-to-face settings. In due time, we will be much more interconnected and reliant on this tool to the point that our behavior on it may need to be the same as away from it. Our status as the dominant species on earth is mainly due to our ability to work together. By increasing our unity, we will continue to push the limits of our knowledge, our abilities, and the quality of our lives in no small part due to the world wide web.
