non-connected – word of mouth…or dilution and distillation? what will I blab about today?
If you take a long look at the time spent today on marketing/branding/image, I swear about 80% of the time is spent on groups/peoples/publics talking about their “image” and maybe 20% of the time is spent on actually doing any work on the cause/ideology/product they are working on or for. we spend about 99% of our time working on things and as far as social media goes, the only reason I am on it is to research algorithms and how the technology is monitoring us as humans and trying to guess where this will all head when quantum computers and advanced chip/sensor sets become cheap and inexpensive for all.
it is when doing the study for all these algorithms and study that I come back to one thought, will the future of technologically connected simply be a society of lonely people all hiding behind a façade, makeup, and illusion of reality? or will society realize, “hey, it is ok to be human and spend time with each other and our flaws?” the third option is will humans awaken and start working inside themselves en-masse to change the way societies and cultures work and operate. could a place where fewer rules and more common sense thrive?
to get to that answer, I have to go to a conversation yesterday about, “whose idea was it to connect all the devises in a home?” to which while in theory, it is a great idea, it has me coming back to the same question I have about creating the perfect and optimal spaces for human beings and wondering, “if you put people in these spaces? will it inhibit growth by taking away the reality of all the elements of life?” I can see where sleeping rooms and quiet rooms will be a great benefit to humans, but until humans start to pay attention to not only diet and exercise – and work inwardly at the same time. I don’t see history changing en mass. rather, a dilution and not distillation will happen with quality and the idea of living.
maybe that is the answer. it is easy to dilute something, you simply pour something in it. distillation is difficult in that you usually have to take a lot of something, heat it, get it to a state of pressure and seeming painful chaos and then you get a few drops of something special.
in some respects, it is the human behavior I am seeing in the united states. everything is somehow heroic. everyone is a celebrity. everyone thinks they deserve it all – by doing not much of anything.
this will be one of the more fascinating areas of work where the neuroscience, psychology, and spiritual realms have to deal with technology and human beings colliding.
will it simply produce a dilution of life where there is more noise? our will it allow distillation to happen to humanity and we all operate in synch and with a frequency geared more toward loving each other than sitting inside our own little worlds and thinking we somehow are part of something bigger?
guess that is why I spend most of my time working and playing with ideas in the lab. you realize how many hours, funds, and versions you come through to get to one great idea via distillation. what then happens is you watch the world dilute it down via media, promotion, and a lot of time yapping.
