I LOVE THE SOFAR CHANNEL
I must admit that my brain is still on Hollies but I did manage to intake a little info to try to kickstart the synapses.
Why do Humans know more about the Moon than the bottom of the Ocean?
We tend to look outward for insight...that's weird.
A good example of this behavior is found in THE TRUE BELIEVER by Eric Hoffer which I re-read religiously ((snort)) every Fall.
"Mass movements need people to devalue both the past and the present.
Mass movements appeal to frustrated people who are dissatisfied with their current state, but are capable of a strong belief in the future.
As well, mass movements appeal to people who want to escape a flawed self by creating an imaginary self and joining a collective whole."
Among other things it discusses how many people look out for inner strength because they are fleeing from freedom and the personal responsibility that it entails... LOOK OUT!! being the key phrase.
Oddly enough people who are content or reasonably so, think that the glass is half full and don't want to change the world. The Others want to validate their parking by grabbing on to something and someone else.
It also occurred to me that the Mammals with the largest brains on the planet have been communicating with others on the other side of the world for Millions of years...obviously it ain't Bloggers, try Whales...
and fyi Sperm Whales have the big 20 pound brain while ours may be more developed it only weighs about 3 lbs.
Whales can get down to the SOFAR CHANNEL (go ahead it's not too scientificky) and exchange their low frequency communications. Some scientists believe that Pacific and Atlantic Whales speak the same language but have a different accent..that's cool. You can check this out on one of the best shows that I have ever seen on the Discovery Channel HERE .
Since Summer will be over for us Northerners in a few weeks I am off to the Lake for the weekend to capture some lasting memories and I leave you with another young Canadian band that just so happens to have earwormed my noggin with my favorite Summer Song for '08.
SOFAR so good!
