Life & Philosophy

The all-important gaze

Stuck in a default state of distractedness, we look away for the next magnetic clue.

As the gaze proceeds, a sense of familiarity comes to our aid to help us navigate our way in the world.

But most of it is just noise impeding the short-term incremental goals and long-term moon shots.

Stare at the world and your model

What we decide to pay attention to ultimately determines our lives.

So we might as well keep our eyes on the entire donut, not just the donut hole.
