no external input

"We have this sort of thing called 'ambient intimacy'. It's not that we're always connected to everybody, but at anytime we can connect to anyone we want...

...But people aren't taking time for mental reflection anymore. And really, when you have no external input, that is a time when there is a creation of self. When you can try and figure out who you really are.

...You see people using phones in 'non-places', something that you don't have a relation, or a history, or identity in. The phone itself has more elation, history, and identity to you than an airport or a highway. You often find people using their phones in these 'inhuman' places in order to get back some of that humanity that's been put on pause."
