a place where you can buy emotions

#emotions #dream #nature #technology #ataraxia  

ataraxia = (n.) a state of freedom from emotional disturbance and anxiety; tranquility or untroubled mind.

Anxiety and depression are the most common mental illness of the 21st century around the globe. In a way or another, we all have started to suffer of it. To trick our feelings, we buy. A new pair of jeans, a new phone, a cute notebook, a fancy bag… but it does not last. The next day we would feel the same…

So how would it be if there was a place for the mind inside the city? A place where you could buy emotions? It would be placed somewhere in-between the houses, so people could easily find it. It would not have a given dimension. This depends on people’s needs.  Inside, there would be nature all around. And in the middle, you could find technology. There, as long as you imagine, nature and technology together would bring you in another world. It would be a place that would grow with your mind. The more you would dream, the bigger and more diverse it would become. Then, you would feel ataraxia.
