I doubt this is some kind of novel thought, but I had a weird realization that just like how cheap clothing moved fashion from the realm of the rich to the middle class and the poor, social media has done the same with maintaining a personal image. Now everyone can fabricate these low-rent versions of maintaining a celebrity image of home, social and work life. Even while you’re actually miserable, ( or just “ok”) everyone can think you are blazingly happy because of a carefully curated media stream.

Dunno if that’s good or bad; probably neither and both.

Process: Ref pic of me as a security guard in a symbiosis page. (Find me later! It’s a game! I’ll probably look totally different.)  
I’m tired. But still ruggedly good-looking.

Warmup. Kicking around ideas for possible creator-owned thing after Symbiosis is finished.

United colors of Symbiosis

(Now I’m wondering how long ago that ad campaign was and how many people will get the joke/reference. Oh well.)

The standard “parachute” in Symbiosis. Anti-grav unit automatically adjusts for body weight to give pre-set rate of descent. Two hand grips for optional use/control of anti-grav unit. Power is from a super-capacitor, so all controls are manual vs mental.
