Here is a philosophical look at miscellaneous ideas on the psyches, creativity society and business. I explore human perception and changing social norms. This project gets into some abstract and chaotic thoughts. Most people will get lost; however, if you are interested in ideas that are on the edge of the neurotypical concept of sensical and that explore the ecological chaotic world of narrative.

1 get you to trust (Now to live up to my last presentation)
2 get you to visualize what I will be talking about (Take 10 seconds to think of 3 words to describe this image)
3 Proclaiming the premise (By the time you thought of the first thing in this list you already have your full opinion on what is shown in the image.)
4 The Framework( You have 3 basic parts to how uses see an image. The first is looking at the image. The second is a mess of complex illogical instincts: dream, narrative, emotion, and so on.)
5 Starting to hint at what I am doing (This is true for any piece of art, propaganda, or advertisement.)
I was a class last week where I said to the group that one or the group members would bake an interesting person to a portrait of. The room immediately sexualized that comment even though it was not meant that way. This post is a critique of our public view of the role of a portrait and how we view understanding someone visually. As a photographer, I am fascinated by how people look. It to not whether anyone body is better than essence another of even about the body at all. Everyone had the essence to them which is infinite time more important. We know this however we still use images to show the physical and even sexual over the identity. Yes, it takes more skill and understanding to capture the essence of an individual. The role of a professional photographer understands how to capture the intricacies individual and collectives that are shaping the world in any way. This is a far cry from anything sexual however the industry and the North American culture muddles this distraction, unfortunately.
Carl Jung said “the routs of the human shadow reach all the way to hell” The shadow refers to the dark evil side of us. I would rephrase this. I would say evil is the seed of a tree of which the trunk is the confusion of fact truth. The fruit of this tree is a human shadow. This structure comes us in literature in all sorts of ways. Form the development of characters to the arrangement of semiotics. An example of this structure is the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. I will the calm weather this ever happened or not in history. I will say that the story is a physical map of the human shadow and its place in the border psyche. As a child as you learn your own personal original sin, the act of losing innocence, you taste your own shadow and loss the place of article bliss. It the act of showing us your own psyche and its place in the world that make stories so compelling.
When looking for an artist you want someone how can work with the edge of the group. Someone how has a foot in the game of social cohesiveness and with one foot in the unknown. The is not just about looking at uncharted territory it is about knowing how to lead people into the jungle and knowing that the arts can paint the path through. I see the world live and it will till it dies. As long as people can build on us then our contributions stay alive. The idea of creating what can be built and improved on by others is what makes art something the viewer can relate to and want to bey into.
The internet an immense about of computers all doing a single function in the grand scheme. These computers are linked by a set of wires sending signals back between the computers. This is a similar set of electrical process that goes on in the brain. While different patterns in brains lead to different personalities you can use those patterns on the internet to look at how we organize the personality of the internet. This is a psycho-analytic theory not a result of a set of study based on data. The ways we can you use neuro-structure model the internet can help us understand the native of the collective in the information age.
Let’s start by defining the group mentality. The idea that the way that has worked in the past is good enough is the first trait. Secondly, the idea that what is thought by others is the best way to do things without question. Another pitfall of group mentality is that if others think it as crazy or unpopular that it must be a bad idea. These types of fears of the unknown and uncharted territory are common in people how to identify followers and or patrons of the common norm.
When looking for people how will do exceptional work in an industry that does not rewarded the group mentality what are the key things that signal a creative that will build what has not been done? Over the next few posts, I will look at this.
When communicating your ideas through art or discussion, you will run into the premade narrative that defines the others individual identity. This narrative is unique however present on all of us, and it determines our biases. Most people are not consciously aware of the roots of their biases in their personal narrative. The subconscious root makes the ability to commutative directly with narrative subliminal messaging. The ability to establish direct communication between your conscious analytical mind and their subconscious narrative allows you to bypass the arguments they have built against, logic itself. Additionally, it lets you connect with the audience even when everything in their emotional and analytical is resisting your conversation.
Narrative is a powerful tool that needs to be accompanied by the task of letting the other person chose whether to put your ideas into their narrative. This consent is what keep what you are doing art and not propaganda.
The narrative is how our life stories come through in any given moment. It is in the realm of the novel not the realm of the essay. It is our contribution to the institution of thought. Native is a growing structure that is a complex and delicate as life itself. When we make the mistake of ignoring this change, our relationship with our narrative can grow brittle and brake. Life, like narratives, can grow back even whey we brake it, as long as we give that identity attention. We build our identity on where our native has unfolded so far. This expression of our narratives is how we relate to art and why we spend so much time with art and propaganda. When creating art, we need to focus on connecting with the audiences narratives we do this by using: empathy, intimacy and personal dialog. We start a conversation between our narrative and theirs.
I have been watching Netflix all the time. I watch It while I am doing work and while I am cleaning. Excessive Netflix is not me trying to act like most millennials or trying to consume mass media. I see real biases in what I watch. The reason I watch it is as I adjust to a lower dose of medication then I have ever been on. The temptation to lose my sense of what was the native of truth and plot of fact. Narrative confusion is the trap at the beginning of losing mental stability. Watching Netflix gives me a grounding into my imagination and where it starts being fact.
The natural world is the birth of our mind. We acclimatize as we get older to the world of artificiality. For this reason, we look to nature as a sense of peace. The idea that human nature is its self natural is one that implies an Anthropocene in our relationship with our identity. As our minds get more acclimated to our artificial surroundings, we seem to get more acclimatized to the idea of artificial minds. Technological innovation moving us toward artificial experience can be seen for Elon Musk’s Nero Lace to the focus on information as a commodity, not a langue. This artificiality of How we experience in the world has impacts on how we use creativity.
The truly most dangerous wars do not take the place of the battle filed they take place in the minds of the generals orchestrating the casualties.
By knowing the one in a hundred people, you can teach to think for themselves are the one in a hundred people that make life worth living.
The last war fought will be over how leads the army of ideas.
I am a classical conservative feminist. The idea of liberal empowerment is not more or less true the grounding yourself, and you work in the foundation that changed itself, society.
One blames the idea of understanding your foundation for were you and your fellow stand-in society as nihilism. Radical Liberalism is to disregard all notion of grounding in how you as a person change the world. To see all people rise as human, no person on authority should dictate how people live their lives and how they chose to love even if that power figure in already in a relationship with the person how is making the decision. Feminsim is not an excuse for anarchy and spite. The idea as far as I can tell is that feminism is the powerful need humility and the compassion to let the week live strong lives.
I saw a lady at the grocery store as a question to a customer he clearly was not comfortable answering. The women like virtually everyone on the planet wanted to make the world a better place.
Here is what came to mind. Curiosity is not a crime if anything is in too short a supply. Innocence is not a crime either, just the denial of it of it is unjust. The one who is ridiculed even by kindness is charged with the duty to teach the common folk what questions to ask. Even is the artist is exposed.
We never truly come up with our own art. Our actions are based on subliminal rearrangements of what we observe. The act of plagiarism is then the lack of unconscious rearrangements. We use the act of inspiration to take these inputs and idea and see the thought our perceptual bias. This bias is the aspect of our identity that gives us individual impact. Bing aware of that bias allows us to be more logical by minimizing our bias and it lets us be more creative by embracing our bias.
People have all different abilities and strengths. The mire someone is overlooked by most people the more they tend to have skills that are atypical in their given environment by definition they might not be suited for that work. However, it is likely that their skills are matched to a task that is not being done by competition. Your job as a leader is to create a place were people fell they can try to develop skills and ideas that not fostered by most people. You want your followers or employees to try and develop ideas that neither they or you see the logic to a first. Ideas that are just gut feelings and aspirations of what the see as a good future. Their dreams the ones that most people laugh at are the. nest projects your portfolio.
Two things happened two me, one was the best in my life and one was the words. I am not sure which one was which. The answer seems to be logic vs growth.
Here is a summary of what the project designing thought means. I look at the psychology and philosophy of impacting the world on a positive way thought creativity and storytelling. I explain this with logic.
People misconstrue the gun as a symbol of violence as a symbol of heroism. You can see this in real-world integration and storytelling. A message of peace and ethics does do not mean that all or even most characters in a story should not use guns. The idea of a story is to understand human reality, and entire characters can be the embodiment of an archetype or distilled part of us. This part of us could be good or bad.
To ethically use a gun in a story the literal act of violence shows us a negative part of our psyche that we along with the story can overcome.
The gun is the symbol for evil, for death, for war, and for everything bad you can do to someone. If it is how we tell the story of hated then why is it in so many successful socially accepted stories?
The is no person on this planet how is only good or evil. That is why we have the idea of god and the devil. No matter what someone actions what you see of them is only an abstraction of their identity. We interact in the world of things however operate in the world of… Read More
Healthy negotiation is not competing for dominance to giving situation. It is creating a safe place for each party to voice what their hart want in that situation and finding how they can write their story in the institution of thought. The collective narrative when cooperative is a deal where all parties walk away winning.
The story by definition Involves either empathy of an understanding of its logical structure. This empathetic facet of the story is the connection between society and the institution of thought. The idea of communicating parts of the institution of thought is part of storytelling whether virtual or not. Storytelling means an inherent level of empathetic abstraction. The degree and shape of this abstraction are what you see in virtual communication.
Most people can empathize with one person very well. It is nest to impossible to empathizes with a whole country. Empathiseable proximity is the idea of intimacy at play. You can have Intimacy when you see a comprehensible part of the institution of thought.
To tell an effective story online, you need offline intimacy in an online context. To do this, you need to need to explore the statistical institution of thought and fine examples of how personal connection can give context empathetic abstraction.
The core of one's passion, of one's identity, is rapped in the much subconscious self-narrative. The narrative is more akin to the idea of a myth, than the idea of logic. No matter how logical you are your purposes will be only abstracted into the logical argument that is your opinions. The case between you most you identity and what you are consciously logical aware of, is where the study of Lucid Dreaming and Natives comes in. In the world of Lucid Dreaming, there is an acronym called (WILD) Wake Induced Lucid Dreaming The Idea is that people can stay consciously aware form the would and that you are falling asleep right into being in the dream. One of the implications of this is that you start to build a bridge over the chasm between logic and identity.
You will have noticed that I have not posted for over 24 hours. I think that as creative’s we need to take time to rest. It is easy to use logic to come up with the most efficient way of working. It is much harder to come up with a way of working that is outside the context of the original mindset. That takes a sense of peace and play. You can not let yourself be centered in imagination if you are stressed. To make sure you are not too stressed, you need to take time to rest when you need it.
Tow win at scrabble you need more points than everyone else. To do this, you need to be able to come up with words that fit criteria that have not to be predecided. You do not know you need a word that will give you a tone of the point is especially spot until after you alone come up with it. This creativity in an of itself is not bound by logical continents that would stop it from being creative. However, were this creativity to come up with a word is applied is a specific set of logical rules. You have a limited number of letters that can clearly give you more points on certain parts of the board. Creativity is in and of its self unconstrained. Logic has no place in daydreaming. Logic is how you set your criteria on what needs to be solved. The logical distinction of process vs criteria is the difference between innovative words in the game and liner frustration.
Leading is about giving opportunities for people to grow, not telling them how to work. To understand how to inspire others to create with you, instead of using logic to constrain their actions, you must start with giving them the freedom the build them, even if the means making mistakes. You cannot keep your workers, clients, and management completely safe. The force of dictatorial management is on the hill of propaganda. Dead people cannot make art. However, an artist only truly dies when the work they make is no longer theirs. To lead people to create in your name you must
The internet is the birth of globalized intimacy. We industrialize empathy in our use of art and propaganda. The story we tell is filtered through an abstraction of truth that is based on anti-intimacy. This veil between the parties communicating is the temptation to use propaganda instead of art. It gives a platform to share vast amounts of ideas that can build a story even if not true. This same veil can help permit us to share the plot of our art without the fear of judgment. It can do many of thing to fundamentally change the relationship between truth, story, perspective, and art. These changes affect how we understand each other through the identity brands and work we put out on the internet. To have an ethical use of brand or idea that people buy into virtually you must be transparent on what is behind that veil of empathy. Ethical online branding means making a conscious effort to avoid denial of empathetic abstraction.
I once told a friend that beauty is in the imperfection. It is the flaws in a friend that you can relate to as belonging. It is the physical flaws in romantic interests that make them in your league. It is the issues with the world that give life people. A good piece of art helps people see and appreciate their flaws. It gives a space for people to share an inmate moment of life passions. It shows us all where we can grow and flourish. We do this by not focusing on technical perfection however the personal expression of imperfection thought the rough greater of technique.
Proactive is not the sum of your ideas, however, the order in which we move from idea to idea. We all move through the world of facts. With fact, there is a corresponding idea that describes it. As we map facts in our head as ideas, we move into the realm of truths. We abstract what exists into what we believe before we even can call ideas ours. These beliefs are the foundation of our perspective. The order in which we arrange these beliefs is abstracted through perspective into our individual identity. The structure of this arrangement is what is the idea of the story.
I live with the Bipolar Disorder and I have been Psychotic is the past. I have been healthy for years however they want to be more creative is always there. When I become unhealthy, the first thing that happens is I become more creative; then I have more ideas, and I can think faster. I start of notice pattern that is less obvious. Being, for lack of a better word smarter, sounds amazing and is a very tempting trap. The problem is I start to see patterns that are not there. I think so fast that my mind starts to bark down. I start to lose the sense of what is a creative idea and what is a simple fact. I start to confuse imagination with observation. I start to lose a sense of what is in my head and what is in the outside world. The archetypal idea of a siren is how creativity at it extreme in my case leads to madness.
I have not had this problem of years this time of self-reflection has given me a unique perspective on creativity and perception.
