An interesting, short article about brains actually being on the same wavelength, so to speak.
People in a real conversation, making a connection, actually experience some identical brain activities.
It has some pretty interesting implications to improv, especially in terms of warming up before a show. Almost scientific proof as to why you need to try to listen and engage in order for group mind to really occur.
because i talk about the ridiculous elitism of the organic food ‘movement’ around here enough, but I mean, only the most privileged among humans could even have the time to think of that kind of stuff; the blatant ignorance with which someone draws UP a list like that is mindblowing. Most people don’t have enough of ANY KIND OF FOOD. Any kind. Most people don’t get to pick and choose between organic and factory ‘proteins’ because most people don’t have the luxury of being able to afford to eat every day.
I mean, we all get that right?
That this is just one more pretend problem that we made up for ourselves that only we are concerned about and the rest of the world is completely oblivious to because they don’t have the free time required to concoct issues? Because they’re all working 16 hours a day and struggling to provide for their families and stay alive one more day, so ‘organic eating’ is really not top on the list of daily priorities and that those people are a hell of a lot more enlightened than 99 percent of shoppers at whole food co-ops will ever be? I mean, sure they eat organically because they are forced to raise (and keep alive) the animals which provide them with food, or not eat at all.
That we have a choice to eat food walmart makes for us makes us the lucky ones?
This is, essentially a big fake issue that is just dripping with indulgence and arrogance and incomprehension of the way the actual world works.
That to be able to be so concerned about these things, to have the option to choose between eating a chicken that ran around for 4 months or one raised in a factory-farm and to be able to be morally concerned about that is the anomaly and that we are the exception to the general rule of the world. SO if people want to take advantage of that position, that doesn’t make them heathens or un-ethical.
I support a more compassionate and kind approach to living life in general, of course, but that begins right there in your own backyard and if you can’t treat your neighbor with the understanding and kindness and compassion that you’d treat a chicken, then good luck with “Changing Things”.
