Illusions. That was the working title we had for the live show platform we imploded the audience with immersive spatial audio, visual and olfaction. It might be another 10 years before the super immersion gets to where it is life, for now, you see the technology chasing the storyline in the USA. Then again, when did we throw away the storyline for the sake of showing off the technology with entertainment?
It is incredible what you can do with sight, sound, smell, messages, words, and where we were in the fray of changing the emotion. We only needed to spend 20% of the budget that mil-spec and military operation did because we had a lot of headroom that didn't' levels of precision. Close enough for hand grenades and horseshoes is enough.
Now that we are in the coming bot world and whenever we get past AI, to AAI as operational and effective, I will be thankful that I am not living in that world anymore. What was a few years with the idea of the internet opening up the planet to be more of a democratic place to share ideas and discuss them – is simply going to be more and more a surveillance society either openly, or ambient to people – the results will be a programming of minds and ideas wandless and fewer people thinking or asking "why?" is this way?
I don't' want to think or believe people want to be so lazy about ideas and change, but perhaps the concept of life has to be fun and comfortable is what is being pushed out by whatever political, religious, military, societal, or monetary message is put on any place on this planet.
all this thinking has me rethink the various countries and different cultures I have worked with on the planet and the idea of freedom.
While there is no perfect place on the planet, there is a lot of perfect moments we can have living it. I am working on learning "everything is exactly as it should be" with meditation and trying to live in the moment and re-evaluate the obligations of modern life.
Personally, I have found that the more you let go, literally and figuratively with the stuff of life and work on yourself. It gets a lot simpler and more natural and meaningful. while I really did enjoy the "stuff" of the world, I found it very unhealthy to the heart and soul of a human and the quest to be loving and humane
but that is my journey and walk maybe one day I will get to the truth of it all while in a human body.
watching your parent suffer also make it really easy to strip away all that is not important, you thought was important, or that which really doesn't care.
In the USA, people throw around the term "freedom" more like a propaganda statement than realizing how much freedom we have given up since 9-11 to the world of fear and insecurity. sad
