Much of this world exists to me as white noise;
Interference from the masses.
An all too apt name for this game.
Just the relentless and infinite popping and crackling of darkness and light.
Relentless and infinite and loud. Because it is loud, in all its varying shades of human grey.
Yet we see in technicolour, most of us, most of the time. Transmitters of energy ourselves, we instinctively know there’s more than just snow. More to be seen. Infinitely more.
Do you see me? Or just my appearance? Are you tuned into my channel? Or lost in interference? Flick, pop, crackle.
Maybe you tried banging on the set? Maybe you’ve even thought to turn the damn thing off.
Maybe you’ve forgotten you hold the remote?
Yep! You had it all along! You can switch from the default whenever you want.
Because that’s all the white noise is really. The default setting. Pre-set to someone elses frequency.
But rest assured, the screen is yours. You the antenna. The programming of your own design. Because you, my friend, have sole control of the remote.
You choose your frequency, how you program yourself, what you channel and more what you transmit.
You can switch off the white noise whenever you’re ready. And tune in to yourself some more.
