as i scan the news wires, think about the social interactions online, then the ones that happen in real life at the face to face level, i am constantly amazed at how different minds process the same information that might be seen and heard in such different ways. once i was brought into the human resource department of a big corporate entity where "conservative" mindsets were their primary employee. it was with great interest that i watched the moderator pour out her purse on a table and ask "what do you see?" there are a myriad of personality indicators out there, meyers briggs is probably the best known, that will try to quantify what each of us may or may not be like in a qualitative and dynamic world.
with respect to the moderators purse contents on a table, the majority of people simply listed a brief overview of the items. why did they ask me to sit in? i took a stab at who and what the person was.
i sit and ponder how augmanity actually started. we wanted the audience to control a show the tech-cave and provide us with the information that would allow us to manipulate the pace of the show in a way that would provide the most impact to the paying consumer. now, the technology is so far beyond what we originally envisioned that i really am very curious as to where it will go. the core ideal seems to be the ability to allow people to see and understand what the other person is feeling.
we will be going against the grain of the mainstream. they want a product where one can manipulate. security forces seem to work from the worst to the best of man, leaving most of the products to be fear based. we want people to see themselves and realize there is nothing to fear, particularly the choice to live with fear leading the way.
fear is like a big shadow being projected on the wall. you can do this by taking a small item and a bright bulb. give enough distance and you can create a huge image. this is what much of the world sees, the huge image. some look at what is making the shadow and go, "oh, thats all it really is?"
