Reshare... (3 mins to complete - and all results will be shared)
Up to 180 responses so far - thank you.
Would you help me out with something?

Survey on your experience with Virtual Reality - which could be none, and that is cool:

Morning!
(I am catching up on my reading...)
p.s. Enjoyed The Man in the High Castle as an exploration of things...
The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly effect (https://goo.gl/QcSdL5 ) “…is the concept that small causes can have large effects.” Particularly where the weather is concerned: https://goo.gl/ZUksV. Despite its colorful name and the butterfly imagery (https://goo.gl/7txRP7) the power of a butterfly’s wings to cause tornadoes thousands of miles away is not quite true, but it’s a pretty good metaphor.

The global weather system, like the rest of this planet and everything else upon it, including us, is connected. What happens in one part affects others and, not unreasonably, the more violent the effect in one part is, the greater is its impact upon the whole: https://goo.gl/CIR0ZG.

The idea of small acts having a great impact that can result in alternative scenarios of reality was something Philip K. Dick (https://goo.gl/2b6PxD) explored in The Man In The High Castle (https://goo.gl/t1d6GR). His idea has found fertile ground amongst those who look at history and wonder whether there are indeed nexus points (https://goo.gl/ccPa8m) at which decisive action alters the course of everything, ushering in an alternative reality (https://goo.gl/vh2mWr).

It was the quintessential renaissance man, Leonardo da Vinci (https://goo.gl/cySp1 ) who said that “To develop a complete mind: Study the art of science; study the science of art. Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else”.

We can’t consider interconnections and holistic global systems without some kind of philosophical framework and Dialectical materialism (https://goo.gl/cEmdO5) has looked at the principal of universal connection (https://goo.gl/qpHgPx). For a more up to date though no less mystical approach to the interconnectedness of things consider Brian Cox’s (https://goo.gl/cxi5h1) quantum mechanical explanation (https://goo.gl/hZf5lt).

Connectivity is not without its challenges however: https://goo.gl/a25kX7 nor is it something that we haven’t discussed before: https://goo.gl/BP5ihV. The global economy is interconnected: https://goo.gl/Vpcqq4 as are the socioeconomic structures that support it: https://goo.gl/WpcPtA. But while these practicalities are relatively obvious to see and analyze there are other, less obvious connections such as politics and religion (https://goo.gl/ZXE9F5) that have not yet reached the stage where they can easily integrate with each other.

In the meantime, as large connections are made outwards, with countries and nations and systems reaching out tendrils to one another, internally, in cities more minute but vital connections are made: https://goo.gl/GIajcw supplying a kind of connective density that accelerates the rate of change at a microlevel.

Now this is where things get really interesting. When everything is connected and nothing can quite exist without it having first been, somehow, contemplated by the brain could quantum physics explain consciousness? (https://goo.gl/ktJo3o). One form of consciousness is, apparently, connected to another: https://goo.gl/rncn84 and consciousness itself may power the physical world: https://goo.gl/u8LUfp.

Mind and brain may be connected via a quantum bridge: https://goo.gl/5xR9KT and there may well be a real, physical mechanism that actually makes that happen, inside the brain itself: https://goo.gl/BNEhy2. That would then mean that consciousness creates reality: https://goo.gl/NMCjnj.

If that’s the case not only are we responsible for ourselves, our communities, the world and each other but we are also responsible, through the many tiny acts that affect bigger and bigger things, for the direction the world turns towards. That brings us back to the importance of principles and values. Ethics and a highly developed sense of what is right and what is wrong.

Leonardo da Vinci famously said: “I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.”

I wish coffee aplenty upon you. And donuts. Croissants, cookies and chocolate cake. Have an awesome Sunday wherever you are.
