We are living in a highly polarized world. A world that is divided by almost everything. Even by the most commoditized products like a TV model! One has to really make an effort to identify the commonalities – what are the similarities that we have with the people around us? What makes us alike? Such thoughts tend to overbear the mind.
But why is it so? Since ages we have been trying to understand the purpose of our existence, at a spiritual level. And at a materialistic level, we seek to understand our place in this world. In so many ways, the materialistic aspect tends to overbear the spiritual one. Because, being the social animal that we are, ‘fitting in’ is deeply ingrained in us.
Man has managed to discover, invent and create uncountable items of desire. For instance, television. Since its invention by P. Farnsworth, and popularised by David Sarnoff, television is one of the major inventions of the 20th century.
