In this world, we humans have evolved to work together and depend on each other. We were never meant to work collectively and mindlessly for someone else. We are beings of cognition, our strength is in the mind. Plans are laid by the collective, and execution is done together. The people have always lead the survival and evolution of our species.
The problem is that we have gone off the path. We are disillusioned by the thing that gets in the way of our happiness. We put our trust in money more than we put trust in people. Instead of working together we have started to work against each other. Taking as much as we can from other people, we give respect to people that have more money and less to the people who actually care about us. We have placed a value on our self worth, our relationship with the world and our very own existence.
This has only made things more complicated and difficult for each other. Value does need to be placed on work / physical goods, it allows us to understand what is valuable and needed at the moment. But what we have essentially done, is place massive black holes in developing countries, and introduced them to play a game that they that they can never win.
Because why would be want to live in so called “dog eat dog world”? We have fought so hard to move on from the survival of the fittest. We should be way past that point. We live in a perpetual state of hunger, never having enough to satisfy ourselves. We seem to have lost our connection with people. We have replaced them with our connection with companies.
Companies that are big and rich that put on a fake happy face, and say that they care about us and they care about our people, we trusted them. This new friend has given us so much for so little for so long that we have lost our connection to other people around us. But when we do find out that they have betrayed our trust we go right back to shopping. Believing that we have no other choice.
By connecting back with the people that matter most in our lives, the people nearest to us. We can close up these black holes. Our network has gotten too tangled and complicated and it’s time to rework the network that connects us together with each other.
I’ve been thinking about the creation of ideas and during this time of thinking i have realized that to generate the creation of more ideas i must first try to understand what an idea is? or What type of ideas are there? Here i will try to classify types ideas and define them.
Our ideas are objects / occurrences that we think would be good to exist in this world. There are three main types of ideas, ideas that relate to our physical space, ideas that relate to our virtual space and ideas that relate to time.
An idea could be based on a physical object in physical space. This type of idea is one that we are most familiar with. These types of physical ideas are ideas about changing and altering our physical space and objects around us. There are three types of physical ideas:
1. An idea about a physical object that performs a specific task,
2. an idea about a physical object that helps you perform a task,
3. an idea about a physical object that guides you to do a specific task
Ideas could also be virtual (existing in virtual or physical space. ) Virtual ideas exist between space and time because as much potential as they have to become physical objects that exist in space. Virtual objects are a process of code reading and execution. just like with physical objects there are the same three types of virtual objects.
1. An idea about a virtual process that performs a specific task,
2. an idea about a virtual process that helps you perform a task,
3. an idea about a virtual process that guides you to do a specific task
Another type of idea is one that relates to time, these are ideas that are actions / reactions. They are essentially processes that we know as rituals or habits. Rituals such as Christmas, prayer or brushing your teeth all started out as ideas.
An idea such as having a picnic or a water gun fight is a process that can happen when it is deployed.These types of ideas can also happen in reaction to an occurrence, season or timekeeping. These types of ideas can be in the shape of an event that can be deployed or a reaction to a specific occurrence. Examples of ideas that are reactions could be a birthday party, which is a reaction to a specific date of the year and how many cycles it has been since your birth. Even holiday celebrations are reactions to cycles of the year. These reaction processes began as ideas and can react to occurrences such as death, life, birth or just good weather. Ideas that exist in time is our way of crafting future Imaginary stories of our lives and people around us.
This video highlights a problem that I found in the use of furniture in today’s society. how prevalent the idea of the disposable furniture is today. and how focused it is on appearance and status. In this video, I show a brief clip of the assembly of a furniture that i have designed to combat this problem. a set of furniture that is cheap and easy to make and have exchangeable parts. it makes use of the solid structure of a milk crate.
