Living in a bubble

Living in a bubble. Nothing in a bubble, is the way it's supposed to be.

Living in a bubble means to live in one’s own world, completely isolated from what is happening all around.

A person living in a bubble can’t see or perceive events around him as he is too engrossed in the little world he has created for himself.

We live in a bubble baby.
A bubble’s not reality.
You gotta have a look outside.
Nothing in a bubble, is the way it’s supposed to be,
And when it blows you’ll hit the ground.

Oh yeah.
The Bubble’s not reality but it’s inside your mind,
Making you forget where you’re from and what’s behind.
Isn’t it suspicious how the world is now your friend,
Getting in return 1.000 more than whatever you could ever send.

The bubble doesn’t make you but it’s you that makes the bubble,
And you better try to remember that it’s in your head.
The bubble is a very tricky thing all full of hype and it is not easy
To try to see the way things are they’ll always be.

We live in a bubble baby,
But it’s not the place to be.
Cause it’s a place of lies and hype.
Don’t believe the bubble cause it’s nothing but a dream,
And when it blows you’ll be alone.

Living in the city
Living for the go
One for the money
Two for the show.
I spend a lot of cash
And I buy a new house
Everybody just-a watch
While me drive my big car.

I have everything
And nothing is missing
Spending all my time
Hugging and Kissing.
Sleeping in the most
expensive hotels
Hanging out with the most-a
beautiful girls.

Everywhere I go people just-a follow me.
I’m famous, and I’m on every screen.
I travel around the world in my private jet.
I see my face in every magazine.
My nick-a name is VIP.
life has become everything that I see.
I got my name up in the stars.
Famous all over from here straight to mars.

The saying “living in a bubble” is similiar to that of “living under a rock.” Both sayings imply that you are separated from society. Bubbles for the most part are translucent. So, someone who lives in a bubble can see what goes on in society but is completely sheltered. However, it is very easy to pop someone’s bubble, or break the barrier that separates them from the rest of the world.

Used during political discourse it means surrounding yourself with only opinions similar to your own and unwillingness to even listen to contrary opinions or evidence. I work hard to not be in too much of a bubble when it comes to the opinions of others. I actively research as many sides to a debate as I can, and look into the sources of all claimed ‘facts’ as much as I can. Just like a conservative in rural areas can be in a bubble about climate change, so to can a liberal in urban areas be in a bubble about gun regulation.

2 Michael Sandel: Where Does Our Instinct for Philosophy Come From?


Gepubliceerd op 23 apr. 2012
Humans have a yearning to think beyond themselves.

Question: Where does our instinct for philosophy come from?
Michael Sandel: I think it comes … I think the hunger for public life of larger meanings comes from the fact that it’s not easy to create a life wholly within the terms of individual self-interest or self-seeking. Or even a life of individual … individualism plus family life. There is, I think, a desire on the part of most people — especially those of us who are fortunate to live in democratic societies — not just to cultivate our own garden and to live a comfortable family life, but also to participate in shaping the courses that govern our collective thought; and to have a say — a meaningful say — in the collective destiny. And once we’re pitched into a wider civic life … once we lift our gaze from our own private pursuits and the well-being of our families to the … to the public, or to the common good, then the values we care about … the hopes and aspirations we have for the common good will unavoidably follow. Now some political philosophies say we should keep … we should try to cabin or bracket our deepest moral and spiritual convictions … our vision of the best way to live a life. “Keep those in the private sphere” — within our families, within our churches, synagogues, mosques — and live a public life that is casting holy, secular, universalist terms. But I don’t think it’s possible. I don’t even think it’s even necessarily desirable to insist that many women who care deeply about moral and sometimes religious questions park those convictions at the side of the road before entering the public sphere. It’s not possible, in many cases, to decide public questions, public controversy, without drawing on some substantive moral conviction. But I also think there is … I think it … life.

A bubble is a floating ball of air.
You can also blow a bubble with gum.
If you’re in your own little bubble, you’re living in a fantasy, separated from the rest of the world by a thin layer of your imagination.

This song, along with a couple others is about living life to the fullest, which means, you should stop Arguing ridiculously and start living on the edge?
