How would You Feel if You (Accidentally) Retrieve a Lost Memory-Card?

    What if you accidentally ran through a 4-gb memory card which contains photographs and videos of the childhood of Alexander 'the Great? Imagine that you have discovered an 8-gb microSD card which is full of multimedia and depicts the everyday life of William Shakespeare.

    Imagine that you have been given a 32-gb memory card where the everyday life of the first human being(s) have been recoded in 4k resolution. Imagine that you find a separate folder where you discover compressed, highly-edited and fast forwarded videos that showcase the origin of the first stars ~ and that of the entire universe.


    Wouldn't these data revolutionize the way that you view yourself, the world, and the universe? Wouldn't it tear and shatter the belief-systems that you have taught, around these phenomena?




    The 'point' that I want to convey is this:  that it's (almost) impossible to convey the reality of anything ~ to anyone ~ being entirely dependent on written or spoken words ~ and other such means of communications: you have to see 'it' yourself to become (fully) aware of it.

    Our education systems are based entirely on 'secondhand interpretation' method. Our teachers are obsessed with 'books' as if they (books) are valid substitutes for 'awareness' that is generated by experienceing something directly, as explained above.


    It's time that we shift our paradigms and engage directly with reality as a whole.

      So, is this thread about not wanting to learn anything?

      Gotta learn how to read before one becomes an historian or and astrophysicist. Although when the child isn't in school the parent can take them on nature walks.

        That is what the parent thinks.

        The essential argument is that one does not need to read any history books if he/she could manage to see the video footages of all the major historical events themselves. They might still find history books helpful and worthwhile as they (history books) provide instant access to 'dates' and such references.


        It's not even an essential requirement that they know how to read and write to understand the meaning of those footages.

          While the book and movie both have their strong points, the book can always provide more detailed information than the movie ever can.  It's a little difficult to "show" the beauty of Einsteins relativity equations, for example, but it comes through clearly on paper.

            ~ I have no idea how you mean that.



            "It's a little difficult to "show" the beauty of Einsteins relativity equations, for example, but it comes through clearly on paper."

            ~ There you have another example of 'knowledge' without awareness. The universe is too big to come down on a piece of paper. Yes, you might understand it theoretically ~ but you might be misinterpreting the reality of the universe at the same time, rather drastically.

              I guess you have never seen a movie that was adapted from a book. The book is always more detailed

                That's what adaptations always do when they attempt to interpret reality into another medium.

                  So you know exactly what wilderness meant before then. You like to play with words a lot don't you?

                    I'm assuming that you have not read through this thread.

                    1. wildeness suggested that a book is better than a movie when both of these are tying to convey a reality to the same recipient. He refutes his own argument a while later:

                    "No, movies can and do give an overview that books never can,"

                    http://hubpages.com/forum/post/2656225



                    2. He had another point which goes like this: "It's a little difficult to "show" the beauty of Einsteins relativity equations, for example, but it comes through clearly on paper" ~ to which I asnwered, that the method that he has described misrepresents reality. Here is it:

                    "The universe is too big to come down on a piece of paper. Yes, you might understand it theoretically ~ but you might be misinterpreting the reality of the universe at the same time, rather drastically."

              And without the knowledge of what fine detail we've learned that "awareness" is most often very, very much out of synch with reality.  Flat earth, for instance, or the egocentrism of thinking the earth was the center of things.  The idea of alchemy or astrology; the tale of an unknown, invisible, indetectable creature from another universe that made this one.  Such things come from looking at nature and making up stories about what should be instead of what is

              No, movies can and do give an overview that books never can, but books give understanding and awareness that watching an artist's rendition of what he thinks happened can never produce.  There is far more to awareness and knowledge than the emotional state of the mind.

                ~ Quite irrelevant to the point of coversation.

                ~ No one would imagine those 'possibilities' had they seen those footages that I've mentioned in the opening post (and during the conversation as well).

                  Really?  I've seen movies of the big bang, with more historical accuracy than any presented by any religious group.  I don't think it would have stopped any alchemist or astrologer, though...

          So rather than educating children to read we should all actively look for video footage of events that took place before camera's were invented.

          Wow, you are really on to something this time. I'll order my two in university and one in high school to stay home and start looking under rocks, they must be around here somewhere. Where did Joseph Smith find those Gold plates again...

          Being able to see these events would be nifty, but it still doesn't mean you'd necessarily understand the context of those events.

      And how is something "recorded on an SD card" not second hand exactly? lol lol

      You need to shift your paradigm to engage reality. wink

        Perhaps anyone would tolerate that much secondhandedness on that issue ~ given the nature of the alternatives they have at hand.

      Since there is no ability to view these past events - the point is moot.

      Even if it WERE possible, it would not be a practice in faith-building, since we can safely deduce that most of the stories we've heard are colored by the lens of mythology.
