The Dreaming Sea- Part II
One of the great spectacles of the modern world is it's simultaneity, or the way certain events seem to happen in a synchronized manner. The great invention of terrorism today is 'serial bombings', where a number of small bombs go off in multiple locations - almost together, as if a conductor were performing a symphony, like an orchestra. It is not entirely accidental that serialism has a rich history in Western classical music.

Simultaneity was difficult to observe for the ancients, because there was no system of communication that could move information faster than a human being, or perhaps a pigeon. If mathematicians in Ancient Greece and the Indus Valley's Vedic civilisation discovered a prime factorization algorithm simultaneously, the fact of this independent discovery would not be known until today. The ancients had no way of observing patterns on a global scale, but we do - and the Economic Crisis of 2008 is one such event.

We are not surprised by the fact that financial markets are falling, as it were, but by the fact that the same thing is happening, at the same time, all over the planet. Also, as observers of these phenomenon through our media technologies, we as a specie are instrumental in generating these events of a global nature. We provide the feedback loop for these events, and generate more events which are simultaneous, distributed and everywhere. This is the true coming of the smart mob - the smart planet.

There is a new problem that we have that the ancients did not have. Their problem was too little information from remote lands, our problem is too much information from remote and near lands. We are forced to ignore certain events just so that we can remain sane, to the extent that, we start believing that those events DID NOT OCCUR AT ALL. There were 64 organized bomb explosions in 6 states of India over the last 6 months, but Indian media are far more interested in the fall of Wall Street, and the U.S. Presidential election. The Indian media wants to make sure that no one forgets the fall of Wall Street. This is important and necessary for the human psyche, to maintain a continuity in it's own narrative (the serialism of the narrative?), and pretend as if certain things did not happen at all. We even choose hidden meanings from real events, and reconstruct those events in our head. We use reality (remixed) to manufacture dreams, and inject them back into the socium. A global event assumes a more stronger reality than something that's happening down the street.

Some call it a meltdown, a crisis or crash....but those who float on a raft in the dreaming sea, they know....they've seen it coming before. It's called a tsunami.

Brilliant! This sounds like a Matrix kind of world, where we cut up the world, into our world!

And yet this has been written about for many years. I will find the reference but to paraphrase; rats were trained to complete a maze.Times were recorded pre training and post training. 20 years later in another part of the world new rats unrelated finished the maze at the post training times
