Perhaps now considered a distant ECO, the myth of Narcissus is now something much closer to us than we imagine.
Every young person and not in our society can be considered “hit” by a form of narcissism.
Thanks to the evolution of technology that has led us to grow between selfies, snapchats and social networks, today we are all much more concerned about appearing behind “profound beauty and perfection” instead of showing us for what we really are.
In the myth of Narcissus, the prophet Tiresia, predicted that Narcissus would have reached old age “if he had never known himself”. However, he referred to his reflection. How today’s young people have their relationship with their reflection? Are they ready to go out of their virtual frame? Or will we end up like Narcissus alone to praise and please ourselves ?!
