“We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us. We, or rather our reason, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our lifetime … So, in essence, the world that your reason wants to sustain is the world created by a description and its dogmatic and inviolable rules, which the reason learns to accept and defend … from now on you should let yourself perceive whether the description is upheld by your reason or by your will.”
Carlos Castaneda

Media Literacy

n

Another very good episode of Team Human. This time about media literacy … how to bring into our collective awareness that when we use digital platforms (both as consumers and creators of content) we are acting in a space that has been created and shaped by others. Others have made choices (conscious and less conscious) that effect what we can or cannot do and how we do it and how we perceive what it is we are doing … and these choices not only shape our consciousness but are amplified by it as we engage these platforms in communicating with others … and how true this is not only in our digital world but also in our physical and built world.

What happens when people are awoken to the existence of an underlying program and to the realization that they can be active participants (instead of submissive players) in its creation?
