Many see but do not see beyond themselves. We have been programmed to think as the market wants us to think. An example: a new IPhone comes out and there is a queue to get one and over the next few weeks millions are sold. Why?
Why do people rush to purchase the latest gadget? what do they experience from the new product or as one of the first buyers? The same product will be on sale a week later and a week after that and after that....
What is the point of having the latest gadget if you are unable to communicate with others?
Are people struck with awe that you were one of the first to buy the latest phone? Are they mad with jealousy? Do they love you more - hate you more or think you're a prick?
