[In March I was invited to do a Pecha Kucha talk on “character development.” The format is 20 slides for 20 seconds each, with a speech to accompany and narrate. I have expanded the text for clarity below.]
WHAT IS GREAT IN MAN IS THAT HE IS A BRIDGE AND NOT AN END; WHAT CAN BE LOVED IN MAN IS THAT HE IS AN OVER-GOING AND A DOWN-GOING.”
– THUS SPOKE ZARATHUSTRA – FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE
What if I told you that much of the chaos we see happening in the world today was not a random occurrence, but rather symptomatic of a larger, less tangible issue confronting humanity as a whole? What if I told you that this issue is none other than the deficiency of our consciousness and the myopia of the ‘singular vision’ – or as William Blake calls it “Newtons Sleep?” In order to understand the crux of our present situation, we must first look at how consciousness and perspectivity have developed.
