The Disappearance of Rituals

There are comparisons between today's society, which is predominantly narcissistic, and societies with rituals through digital communication.

I liked that it detailed the impact of rituals/symbols on human/societal life and strengthened it with different topics.

Towards the end, I felt that it became repetitive.

Celebrating seasonal transitions, funerals, weddings... The lines between these transitions may truly be disappearing.

For instance, when we bring someone who has passed away back to speak with AI, will death leave the same impact?

It added valuable insights and prompted me to think more deeply about the subject of depth.
