What is this?

Enjoyable to visualize. I guess he's saying that the new is not necessarily
better than the old. It sounds like a warning message: just because
technology is there doesn't mean that we should use it. We could end up
killing ourselves.

Lost Faith. Trust...
i never got to say bye. i never got over your death.
the past four years since your death my life was sad and horrible, i always
missed you. i always believed in only you and always wanted you to answer
me. where were you when i cryed, where were you when i was alone of hurt.
i've become something that im not sure of; if i am. so i lost faith, trust
in you. and i also lost you. when will you answer me? when will you help
me?
to my dad.
