Digital life after your death…

digital_life_after_your_death_peopleandthoughts

I was standing at signal waiting for it to let us all go. We still had 30 seconds left. Suddenly a guy come to me,started waiting for signal to go green, picked up his phone quick ( which I think was there in his trunk for hours ), grabbed a quick selfie with his girlfriend at the back with that fake smile…there were still 5 seconds left, He put the phone back into trunk and went away as signal went green…

He must have uploaded it onto Facebook or Whats app or Instagram  with all required tagging to it…’enjoying day with xyz’,’at xyz’,’beautiful day with xyz’,’my lovely xyz’,’with my new xyz’,’#xyz’ etc.

6 out of 10 people do this once in a week…we set profile pictures, we tweet, we upload, we fill forms, we share our locations…

My mind just went on thinking , asking me again and again …”How will be your digital life after your death?”

You sprinkle this whole information, this whole big data over the internet everyday …that’s not going to go anywhere after you !!! Have you ever thought how dangerous/helpful that might be ?

We are living in 21st century where current technology can get nearly every schedule of yours and use that data to create virtual image of yours after your death !!! The places you go , the things you do , every update of your location, the photos we share over social media…isn’t that a crazy amount of info ?

hereafter institute has created virtual reality reconstruction based on the videos, photographs and some of the info available over internet about the person.This system creates a complete virtual 3D model of your loved once who is dead recently, that model greets you with projection of his past memories, reconstructed from info over internet…

You just enter into a waiting room, see a door with some names on it, you stare at one of them, now suddenly the door opens …the person on the other hand is the same name you selected from the door, that person is dead, you end up seeing,living few past moments with that person..that person literally looks at you !!! its not just a video clip but a whole intelligent 3D scene reconstructed from the info about that person over the internet…

What happened next is just height…

Hereafter institute live performed this thing where participants got a surprise where everyone went into a room alone where they attended their own funeral created entirely from their Facebook feed data…Oh My God !!!!

The things we share over internet remain forever…The people who know you, remember you only till the last point they saw you…the things we post online, things we share, this social media expands this to our last point on earth too …even up to our funeral.

This is just insane..We live our life thinking that deleting our profile pic from our phone deletes it over the internet…My phone rings in, i’m at my bus stop waiting for the bus and the notification over my  phone says, “Just 30 minutes more to go home”…

Who told it where do I live ? Who told it that i’m waiting here ? How does my phone know this ?

I just don’t want to think a single word on this anymore…

I don’t mean anything either. Its not about right or wrong, Its just about  enormous info we share about our lives online, the advancement in technology and the digital life we have set around us … We have already reached a stage where the phone without internet seems to be a dumb phone, a stage where I can’t leave my phone on desk for a while because I don’t want to miss a call/message …
