At first he who invented any art that went beyond the common perceptions
of man was naturally admired by men, not only because there was
something useful in the inventions, but because he was thought wise and
superior to the rest. But as more arts were invented, and some were
directed to the necessities of life, others to its recreation, the
inventors of the latter were always regarded as wiser than the inventors
of the former, because their branches of knowledge did not aim at
utility. ~ Aristotle
“When someone walks around a bend in the river, the Pirahã say that the person has not simply gone away but xibipíío—‘gone out of experience. They use the same phrase when a candle flame flickers. The light ‘goes in and out of experience.’ ”
— Daniel Everett, best known for his study of the Amazon Basin’s Pirahã people and their language
Western psychologists view, the “self” or the “executive function” is actually a process and not really a thing. It waxes and wanes all the time, goes into the foreground and background of awareness depending on how much we need it, disappears when we sleep, is not the same as it was when we were little, much less the same as it was last year, and is even subtly different than it was last week. According to Eastern views ,attachment to the opposite idea of this, that we are never changing, is the root of attachment and suffering. Holding on to the impossible.
The Geometry of Movies can Change the Way We Think
Circles. Triangles. Squares. Those aren’t the things you expect to
see in a movie but films have been using shapes to subtly influence
emotion for a long time. Circles are lovable, triangles are evil, and
squares are boring. Now You See It highlights the geometry used in shots to show you how movies use shapes to manipulate your feelings.
A villain is usually portrayed with sharper features to represent
their harshness—think Maleficent or Darth Vader. The good guys are
softer and rounder to make them appear more lovable and huggable—think
Mickey Mouse or Baloo from The Jungle Book. And squares are used for boring and old-fashioned characters like Carl Fredricksen from Up, because squares are squares (duh).
