First virtual holiday

 Egypt s Prime Minister just announced precautionary measures during Eid al-Fitr holiday. I remembered the nineties of the last century, when the world began to digitize old systems with the start of the emergence of computers, and the peak of digitization was the emergence of the Internet and smart phones. Digitisation is the conversion of analog systems into digital content, i.e. the use of computers and smart phones to carry out business such as paying bills, cash transfers, e-mail, archiving and document storage.

The most dangerous thing is the increasing role of the Internet in our lives, so it has become indispensable. It has become the teacher at the time of need, the guide to whom we resort to in times of stress, the source of knowledge and learning, and a friend to spend time with.
This created a new reality called virtual reality, which is much closed to the illusion than reality, which has become even more important at the time of Coronavirus as the people found a much wider world than their limited and narrow homes.
From now on, prepare yourself to carry two personalities, a real person and a digital one. In your room, you will live another alternative life in that virutal reality and your life will end when your account is broke.
