anyone else gaze in wonderment with the weatherman blowing around in the hurricane and seeing two guys casually walk right behind him? anyone else read the stations report that the guy was not on concrete, and therefore he had to flail around in a state of dramatic imbalance? anyone believe that merde?
people wonder why I worry about how advanced AI will be used for the manipulation of political, religious, spiritual, ideological, marketing/advertising/branding, and any other issue or cause. here is a real world example of the manipulation that simply doesn’t belong in media:
there really is no defense for this footage. it really doesn’t matter whose idea it was, the reporter, his producer, a guy in the control room, the network bosses saying, “give us only the truth, but if you happen to take an over acting pill…we won’t say anything.”
perhaps the media thinks the viewing public is really that stupid? I ask the question, as the weatherman is simply the tip of the iceberg with a lot of manipulation that goes on. while I do believe each human will have a very unique perspective and take on the information they receive and digest, what I don’t understand is the media thinking that their one way to present what appears to be more and more a slanted op-ed and not the facts – is to be believed.
there is a problem I have in the world, I ask questions like, “why? how come? what do you mean?” and other questions that get me in trouble with some people. it is like people hear a view, latch on to it, and don’t explore the why? or live experientially to understand more than the words. it is a bit like going to church and simply checking off the list of “do’s and don’ts” and somehow thinking you have arrived and are righteous and good.
the more I go into spirituality, the more I realize how not so great I am, and how amazing the creator of the universe is with the simple things like, mercy, grace, and love.
the human being is really amazing with how we think and behave – yet – I seem to really be going back into ultra-simplistic living. the more I go there – the more insane the world appears with people chasing stuff, living in fears that probably are more something in one’s mind than any reality of happening -and overall, it looks like societies new gerbil mill of life is to appear like all the makeup, accoutrements, and stuff of life and events are staged like the perfect selfie photo posted for who/whatever to see.
it looks like the gerbil mill of “keeping up with the jones” simply went into hyperdrive with all the caffeinated energy drinks I see people chugging.
as for the news…wow….”he was not on concrete sidewalk…no sh*t…what did those two other guys have..superpowers? some defense against bad weather? oh…they were just walking along the street
how about, “yeah, we are sorry, reporter dude got a little excited with the barometric pressure dropping so suddenly and did something stupid….he thought reporting the news was an audition to get a role in a new disaster film. we talked to him about it and he will simply report the news. if he should get blown away in future disasters, he won’t be acting. we will get an Emmy or a weather Pulitzer!”
that cave in the mountain is looking really nice. but there, I will have to look even deepen inside myself – no acting – no make-up – just truth and reality. it used to scare me, but not anymore. life is an amazing journey. try not to waste it chasing shiny objects.
i think under the new EU copyright law, can i be sued for using a link to the story of the infamous weatherman battling a storm standing on grass? who knew weathermen needed cleats…astroturf…fake sets….green screens….ick.
