This is a brief one, but one that leaves an impact. Go and try it out, I know you want to, because I certainly did.
The results will vary depending on your own search history and the country you’re in, but you’ll get largely the same suggestions.
I found it depressing, most of it anyway. But it also made me wonder.
Who turns to Google to find answers to questions like that? I’ve asked questions before. Sometimes just to see what results I would get.
I know that in 2011 the internet consisted of over 13.8 Billion websites, more than the (currently accepted) age of the Universe in years.
There will be more now.
It stands to reason to assume that there’s a website out there for every question you could possibly ask. If you’re going to find the answer to your question is a different story entirely.
What question would you ask? Would it be any of those? Would you turn to the internet to have any of those answered?
I’ve never asked any of those questions. I’ve thought about a few of them, but found my own answers.
It does make you wonder, though, about your fellow human beings. How many must be asking the same questions to qualify as a popular search result suggestion?
Normally I share things I find uplifting or inspiring. This doesn’t qualify for either. But not everything in life is uplifting or inspiring. Few things are to be honest.
This made me think about others, about those people asking those questions. Speaking of perspective, this certainly offers one.
I can reflect on myself all I want all day long. It doesn’t hurt to look outside every now and then, though.
