People generally see and believe only what's in front of them, disconnected from the magic of their consciousness. Reality is separated from the chorus of chemical reactions inside our heads.
The prevailing theory ushered in by philosopher David Chalmers is that our conscious experience is considered the “hard problem,” a process so superior and mysterious it lies beyond the reach of science.
The mind and the world are one of natural phenomenon. “We should get it straight once for all,” says philosopher and computer scientist Riccardo Manzotti, “there are no hard problems in nature, only natural problems. And we are part of nature.”
Is the conscious experience of an object identical with the object one experiences or is the conscience invisible to science and therefore thriving within its own “phenomenal mind?”
Everything is contrived, from the glowing burger buns, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, to the juicy fresh meat. Video takes food advertising even further, making it come alive from its static state.
Table top advertising or food marketing is no different than any other product marketing: the illusion never matches with the reality of creating it. In reality, the food has been dressed up and augmented to look fresh and mouth watering like those lobsters in Red Lobster commercials.
Fashion advertising is similar. The model is always more enticing wearing makeup and sporting a six pack. When models make commercials, they never smile. Bad assery sells.
Not surprisingly, food porn and selfies are huge on Instagram too, the people's marketing platform. A little bit of shoot preparation and filters make both food and faces look better than they actually are.
Today, anyone can use technology to create a Hollywood look. Everyone's deceiving and buying lies at the same time. We all desire better versions of ourselves, including what appears on our plates.
We take a retrospective report, this time with the prospect of various viewpoints.
When we look back at our own history, it only makes sense now. It's never lucid at the time. Today's mirror emits a story that can't tell a lie.
While the future prohibits knowledge, gathering experience increases one’s attentiveness toward ambient hints. Age is didactic — it compels us to notice and thereby prevent the patterns and vices we originally pursued.
The creative part of us gets tired of waiting. Or just gets tired.
We may have to live things twice in order to figure out what to do next. The coexistence of both hope and despair push us through the messy middle.
From the cave to the smartphone and onto the next magical widget, the fun is in the hunt to use the tools of today to look back and figure out what's on the other side of the rainbow.
