Speaking as a longtime iPhone user and amateur photographer, I find it undeniable that Portrait mode—a marquee technology in the latest edition of the most popular phones in the world—has gotten glowed up. Over weeks of taking photos with the device, I realized that the camera had crossed a threshold between photograph and fauxtograph. People have always sought out good light.

Selfies are often shared on social media , via social networking services such as Facebook , Twitter , Snapchat , and Instagram. They are often casual in nature or made to appear casual.

And you seem like a good person. He just saw someone die or gave a devastating diagnosis or did an incredibly complex surgery with potential complications. He married the new girl then cheated on her. So I understand how it's easy to believe nonsense when you're brainwashed from birth, and how it can be comforting to believe your life is somehow very important in the grand scale of the universe, and how you don't have to be afraid of death because you'll go on to a better place where you'll live happily ever after for eternity.
