Examples of artificial in a Sentence

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Bio-Cyber ​​Consciousness In reality, logic is quantum vision, just scrolling through a video player, so we can see a scenario of an unstable future. But going into Bio-cyberconsciousness, which forms an alternative reality of dreams, since technology is a biomechanical symbiote that absorbs our consciousness and thereby gains mind, forming a duality of the mind in which we begin to get confused about who we are - this is a black hole that scatters our mind into pixels of memories , a mosaic that is more difficult to assemble over time, this is how growing up in oblivion is formed - it is like a lethargic dream of illusions that takes us to another space. Hypper is a dream in which time accelerates during sleep, being on the verge of two worlds: reality and illusion. You miss life itself and the most important core of life is love. Love should become the main instinct that contains the filling of true happiness, namely the constant need to give your sincere love. Techno dimension in which there is only a sphere of consciousness called our immortality. Artificial hibernation in artificial happiness, since reality is an eternity in which a person feels only depression as he feels infinity - this is the immortality of consciousness, and infinity is the truth. Blindness from terabytes of HD imagination is a great denial of its essence and meanings depend on our desires. A place where we will never see infinity, since it is limited only by our associations of self-interest. Death itself is a great awakening from the slavery of desires, because the soul longs only for peace. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  4. Anuj Somany:

    It is so easy and simple to know every individual’s character because an emotional person gets easily attracted towards the natural and the material people get readily infatuated to the artificial.

  5. Erik Pevernagie:

    Some abandon everything for the outward shell, in the interest of “glitter and looks”, let freeze themselves in artificial postures and renounce realness and sense of self, for the sake of fake appearances, which do not belong to their personality. They live through the eyes of others and cannot enjoy an individual life. Their pathetic fate is an impressive lack of authenticity, spontaneity, candidness, which is a unique key to an open-minded existence. ("Like a frozen image")
