If it’s not spontaneous and without regard for return…….It’s not ART…..only Animation……

Tree

Raw, as it gets, before the furnace of discrimination….not a jot nor a tittle has been changed.

In plain sight…..

We sense this world in real-time…..if you are reading this now, take a look around the room – you are in real time….even if you read these words asynchronously……network lag……you are still observing your world in real-time…..at the speed of light.

Everything you witness, sense….see is traveling at the speed of light…..as fast as your imagination can handle…..as fast as your thought stream…as fast as you can tell your knee to jerk……faster….still.

It should stand to reason that if this is the case then…..our social interfacing in real-time makes it nearly impossible for people to be self-aware and self-evident in a social interfacing situation…..whether a one-on one-conflict (husband and wife) or a collective, agenda-base conflict…….(Dallas police and Black Lives Matter).

It is damn-near, entirely impossible – for these good folks in each corner, party or side….whether individual or collective….to be self-aware…..MINDFUL…..self-evident….MINDFUL……when the kitchen gets hotter…..intense…….pressure….

People stop seeing people…..yet there’s also more happening, more stirring…..it’s not always so black and white….good and bad……..the pressure builds……the focus is dilated upon the deviant….and eventually critical mass…..chaos, recession, revolution? Progress? Who knows? This time it will be different?

This is where I lose most folks in the mist……what will be different? Will you and your thugs be finally able to force good will upon those without it? Sensitivity training? and other such programma?

Silliness……first realize…..this……YOU DO NOT DO WELL IN REAL TIME…..despite what you think in your CINEMA MIND…..You are not Chuck Norris or Sherlock Holmes…..

It’s like this……at the speed of light….in real time…..we have no available time to spare for extended analysis – to whether or not this dickhead here is trying to 1-up me and steal the show…..steal the girl……take “it” from me……at the speed of light, so few….do so poorly at best…..<—-take time with that…..that is sober reality.

After the fact…..we get the luxury of replay……Bill Clinton might have thought the evening after sticking his cigar into Lewinsky’s beaver – that he might be in deep trouble……that maybe he didn’t toe the line…..that maybe he made a poor choice. Under the luxury of replay – we get to slooooow dooown time….we can freeze frame, play it over and over…. time to weigh and gauge opportunity, ROI and risk…….We can slow things down in a cool or cold media state……whether video….DVRing (‪#‎GameofThrones‬), photographs, neural memory……with the ability to replay – reframe our frames of reference….we gain the benefit of comparing other states of reference….which tend to render “lessons”…..what the fuck went wrongs…….errors……mistakes….

KEY: Real-time is not the greatest-space for you to be in……..you are more than willing to cave in, lie, cheat, steal, throw mama from the train, kill, gossip….post-hoc rationalize….cast selective judgments and good guy badges……vest……WIN……1-up…..for ever and ever…..AMEN…….to those without regard – real-time is almost the same as the process itself…..there is no-real-life in it….only the action-sequence itself….the application….the process…

Begin to SLOOOOOW down time……observe conflicts around you, begin to NOT participate in these common social exchanges…just watch….mostly, watch your own thoughts and how they seemingly come from “no where”….”left field”…..watch how they change when you are confronted…..challenged…..or when someone says something nice about you…or when a friend begins to gossop or play the victim….or any other obvious social drama……..how do you react when confronted? how do you want to react? Punch in the face? Go back to Africa? Nazi scum? Racist!

How do you react if you just observe? Do you react at all when you trade participation for observation? Is there a need to do either, is one a better option than the other? If we go spinning off in real time, then we lose our opportunity to learn, help and possibility heal…. Perhaps try and understand why these goofballs are spinning their wheels….over and over in the mud and the muck….
