How We Think

There's more to this than just this loop but you begin to see the process. And yes, before you ask, intelligence and cognition are two different things. Intelligence is the abstraction that powers us, think of it as thinking about thinking, while cognition is a series of processes that are activated due to existing conditions (thoughts, ideas, knowledge etc) and circumstances to lead to an outcome.

To make this a little harder, Cognition feeds back into Intelligence and vice versa. :)

Training the Mind

A trained mind delivers a different perception. Perception creates reality. A new reality delivers different outcomes. #TheSniperMind

How Video Ranks

Video ranks differently on YouTube than it does on Google Search and seeing how YouTube is now more popular than Google.com on desktop searches, it makes it the world's most popular search engine.

Relevance, Resonance and Revenue play a pivotal part here. Dine in!

Mirror Image

The sea and the sky form mirror images of each other with the boats reflected in the water and the dividing line formed by the harbour's wave-breaker, lit by the rising sun.

Courtesy of Bennie of course and his early morning walks. Not quite sure what this scene will look like in a few months when winter comes but we shall find out. :) For now, it just made me feel glad to see it and I am sharing it with you all.

Search Becomes Your Doorway To Your Personalized Web

The personalization of search will increase opportunities for serendipitous discovery of content through machine learning derived connections. 
Google Search Becomes Even More Personal

There is a huge, unrealized subtext to all this that has to do with semantic connections, social signals, the semantic web, Voice search (the first truly semantic search index google built) and Google indexing it all.

Bennie The Humble

Every dog, in its time, wonders how would history remember it? Bennie, The Just? Bennie, The Merciful? Bennie, The Savior? Bennie knows that much depends upon attitude, poise and a general sense of perspective.

In striking this pose he wants us all to know that he, Bennie, The Knowledgeable would very much like all of us to remember him as Bennie, The Humble.
