That term generates 7,000,000 results when searched in google, and has been covered by news and online media sites. It described the post-viewing depression that apparently sits in after watching Avatar, though not much is said on the basis of it or a way to resolve any such feelings. Here's my 2 cents...
There’s something to be said for the innate desire to live as who we really are and connect to the world around us in a deeper and more spiritual way. The movie Avatar depicts a very understanding, sensitive and interconnected civilization that obeys simple concepts of humanity, compassion, and respect primarily because they can see the impact they make on other beings with every step they take. Humans invade this civilization and begin to destroy their home in pursuit of the material wealth that is in the soil. The people there strive to defend it because they see the truth; they see that all the beauty that the world has to offer is all around them. It’s in the nature, it’s in the people, and it’s in the connections that all living beings share.
Our world is just the same. There’s a magnificent amount of vibrant energy that transcends every giant mountain and every blade of grass – all we need to do it stop what we’re preoccupied with and appreciate this notion to begin to conceptualize it as a possibility. The people in Avatar do have a significant advantage over us because they can see this flow of energy visually by default. Unfortunately out sense of sight never evolved to allow us to easily see it like they can. Though there is something to be said about the attitude we can aspire to develop – one of mindfulness and awareness of the more important things in life that will bring about a wholesome joy in life itself that light beer and blue jeans cannot satisfy.
