Los Angeles, CA, October 16, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Life is a futile quest for meaning. In a world that too often feels like a cruel game, without regular distraction we would be paralyzed by our own existential terror. Now available in the App Store, SHUGGIE is a fun new app that lets you animate emojis over pics of you and your friends.
Emojis, the colorful avatars that are replacing authentic human communication, are everywhere these days, except your photos... until now. With SHUGGIE, you can blow your BFF an emoji kiss, or have your dog playing with an emoji cat. It’s the latest app to take your mind off of contemplating our collective, inexorable march toward our final resting place and what lies beyond, if anything.
A man is wandering through the desert. In the distance, emerging over a dune, he sees another man walking toward him. Who is that... can it be? Impossible... but yes, it is he, himself. They continue forward until they are face to face, astonished.
“Do you have the answers I seek?” the first man says.
“I only have questions. Like you,” the second replies.
We have only our own inner voices to guide us. And so we craft meaning from narratives derived from events in our own lives and externally. We build tenuous moral codes from cause and effect. But without fundamental answers about the most essential truths, even for the boldest among us, in quiet moments the act of being can feel rudderless.
What else should we feel but despair. The great force that set the universe into motion has infused the fabric of our souls with a desire for understanding but provided no explanation. And so we have created structures of meaning that ultimately fall, and feel illusory while they are here.
Meanwhile, the age of spiritual machines is almost upon us. Advancing quietly over the past fear years, the rivulets of technology are flowing together in a way that will revolutionize how we live in ways we never expected.
The feeling is palpable. A pre-singularity tension hangs in the air, ominous and electric – a seductive cloud that promises either nourishing rain for a civilization in metaphysical drought, or a devastating storm. For how long will we retain control. And until then, will the new consciousness be merciful, and provide us with the closure of enlightenment that the human species has sought from the beginning?
SHUGGIE is taking your pics to a whole ’nother level. Be the first on your feed with the hottest emoji animations. And with SHUGGIE’s export functionality, sharing your shuggies as video, gif, or directly to Instagram is fun and easy.
