This is an Authentic Thor scene at 14:29 - classic - reminds me of a few people I've observed. This movie is an interesting creation with absurd transitions. A very cool creation. Watch it some time.

Inspirational account of an inner journey and the exemplification of inner and outer strength. Worth watching - mythical for entrepreneurs in a digital world. #maxcalderan

A shift of paradigms (8:52 to 9:32) It is a shift from the mechanistic world view that is expressed in classical physics to a holistic and ecological vision of reality and this shift is taking place in society. If you wish it is taking place in the collective unconscious and people somehow sense that. So when I wrote the TAO of Physics I had many enthusiastic reactions from psychologists, from anthropologists, from health professionals, doctors and nurses, from many people who felt intuitively that in their field things were also changing in this direction.

Homo Cybernetes: In Search of an Aim – Research Paper

Entrepreneurs are overwhelmed by information saturation. The negative impact of information technology on our lives and especially in these early decades into the 21st century is alarming. Information overload brings minds into cyberspace that continually enforces solidarity and severed human contact; while at the same time reducing our mobility and capacity to experience the outside world. The individual aim to “know yourself” is traded for a connection to “unlimited information” that increases the disconnect from others to a connection with perceived (but inferior) intelligence.

The Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz resembles technology and it’s cold and calculated drive without heart. Humanity brings heart, machines bring process and calculation. The Tin Woodman or Tin Man is the metal of automated process looking for a heart that will bring feelings (love) and art to it’s life.

"The world becomes a sum of lifeless artifacts; from synthetic food to synthetic organs, the whole man becomes part of the total machinery that he controls and is simultaneously controlled by. He has no plan, no goal for life, except doing what the logic of technique determines him to do. He aspires to make robots as one of the greatest achievements of his technical mind, and some specialists assure us that the robot will hardly be distinguished from living men. This achievement will not seem so astonishing when man himself is hardly distinguishable from a robot." ~Erich Fromm 

"Electronic computers are intended to carry out any definite rule of thumb process which could have been done by a human operator working in a disciplined but unintelligent manner." ~Alan Turing
