I can’t wait. Where do you end and I begin? Synchronized swimmers and dancers, sports players, multiplayer gamers, drivers, all need a holistic awareness of self and other as a super-organism.
Still, there;s separation without commingling.
But we readily control online avatars in games and also respond to its needs and not just our own.
So, how different is that from having cooperative control of yourself and other people simultaneously?
Where does the “I” end and the social dance begin? In very act of communicating, there is a shared brain space.
Talking to you is not so different than having a conversation in my own mind, debating different aspects of something.
Maybe the transition won’t be difficult at all. Maybe we’re already doing it.
Systemic awareness / holistic perspective / ecological mind / super-organism – all similar concepts.
It’s hard for me to not be frozen in awe. The subjective experience of “flow” is almost religious; I’d bet it activates the so-called “religious centers” of the brain, and more so when this flow involves other people, the environment we’re in and all of the ways we’re very tangibly connected.
Brain to keyboard to computer to wifi through wires to your wifi to computer to screen to brain.
This combined brain space has lag-time. It takes time to form sentences, the networks to work, the eyes to read, the brain to formulate response sentences and back again… but the shorter and shorter this lag time becomes, perhaps there WILL reach a point of the dissolution of “self” and “other”.
Won’t that be something!
I was stumbling while trying to explain this but it was part of my personal challenge to try to speak “off the cuff” about things I understand but I need to prove that I REALLY understand it by trying to teach it, at least on some level.
Doing it in writing is easy for me but doing it in speech I find very difficult.
Hence, this video. My words “lock up” in my brain as I try to say them: it’s like a traffic jam of “possible next things to say” and what comes out is “uh… um… errr” but I push ahead anyway.
I stuttered until I got training at age 8 to stop it. I was taught to create a “gap” in my mind where I would be able to “finish the word inside” before speaking it aloud.
I finally had an answer and was tired of hearing the same people complaining about “their memory” when it’s 100% normal and proven normal.
If you want to NOT forget something when you are going from one room to another, imagine a basket in your hand and put what you want to remember in that imaginary basket.
Just before you go through the doorway, look at your basket so you know what’s inside.
Carry the basket through the threshold into the other room.
Look at your basket.
You just carried your memories with you into the new space.
