Oculus VR: A Zuckerberg Odyssey

Virtual Reality Reprogramming Your Mind?

downloadPeople have benn talking about Mark Zuckerberg’s new virtual reality device that has been seen in a few photos, at first glance many probably would think this is a weird scene out of this one forgotten show from the 90’s called VR.5.

In that show the protagonist Sydney Bloom (Lori Singer) was a computer scientist who was working on developing virtual reality that was capable of interacting with real-time events that take place in the real world.

download (3) She uses the technology to help an organization known as “The Committee”, to help catch “off the radar criminals” who seemingly elude government agents with ease.

Watching the short-lived VR.5 show back then, seems to put Zuckerberg’s VR invention in the same light.

But in true reality, people had to wonder when the next step of social media interaction would step up it’s game.

From the looks of it, it has stepped up quite a few notches judging from the physical facial gestures demonstrated by the crowd you see in the picture with Zuckerberg walking alone side watching their mouths drop with utter disbelief.

This sounds great and all, but it does have some people wondering about this new “virtual social media platform” in term of how it might affect the user’s perception between what is real, and what is not.

People who are already talking about this new technology might believe it to be over-baring, your basic social media platform has already mentally ensnared (keeping you glued to your devices 24/7) millions on smartphones and computers.

downloadIt may be able to place you in an luxurious environment, it may seem so real to people to the point were it may feel somewhat intoxicating.

And if it seems intoxicating (like an addiction), does this mean that people could get hooked on this “fantasy creator” device as if it were a drug?

Is this the future for us?

download (2)A future where you answer to the beckoning will of our fancy mind-bending technology?

Perhaps.

You can’t help to imagine how dependent people will be using these electronic contraptions some 15 – 20 years from now.

Zuckerberg’s virtual reality headset will take the social media platform further then anyone could have imagined, and although this does sound promising one can’t help to wonder if adding new technology like this to the social media roster will be overkill.

The question came up about the constant bombardment of new technology affecting the mind, there’s a article that talks about potential repercussion when a person interacts with the technology who might not be aware of what they will be subjected to.

I’ll leave a link at the end of this post to learn more about how the Oculus VR unit affects one psychologically, the technology itself will push the limits in terms of making what seems is fantasy into the real-time events.

downloadBut I wanted to get back to the picture photo you saw with everyone in the audience sitting there wearing the VR unit over their faces.

Some people that saw this photo reacted saying that it look somewhat creepy just seeing a room full of people mindlessly wearing the devices on their faces, and you can’t deny it is odd to see people just sitting around like that cutting themselves off from ‘actual’ reality.

Then you have to think about interacting with these units for long periods of time, could VR reality which creates an abstract / life-like world for you to interact with affect your mental health in a perverse way?

download-5So if they use these VR glasses, would they run the risk of triggering an epileptic episode?

The biggest factor and you’re probably are already thinking this, is the device’s IP address number. You know the number that link’s devices such as laptops, desktop, smart phone, tablets, etc, to the net. In return they give off your location from the source (which is the device). 

This could give someone who is “tech-savvy” the opportunity to gain access through the device, this goes double for any business transactions done online using their credit card to make purchases, or banking transactions, anything that might get left (sensitive data) for a hacker to pick up on with their own malware software.

But what can one expect with all of the software out there that can be manipulated to a hacker’s will.

The main focus that centers around this new form of social media input / output again goes back to the photo with Mark Zuckerberg and the users wearing the device head gear.

An article talks about this eerie scene at The Verge, the title even resonates with the image shown for it is called…

This image of Mark Zuckerberg says so much about our future

And to be honest putting the title and picture together, does bring up the question about our future and the constant evolution of social media as we know it.

When you have a thousand people in one room all being feed a “Facebook Virtual Reality”, and they are basically contain in a virtual visual environment of sorts which is an area about 7 inches wide and 3 inches in height.

Taking a closer look Zuckerberg pictured walking along side the large group of people is depicted as a “twisted technician”, wearing a sinister-like smile on his face as he strolls along past them as if they were apart of some type of mind-blogging experiment gone viral.

Now maybe people might see it that way, and maybe some don’t, but hopefully advancing technology like this doesn’t break people completely from their humanity.

Because at the end of the day, people should realize that “true reality” is a very important part of their lives which reminds them of their existence.

TV: A Force To Be Reckoned With?

You’ll View It Different After Reading This…

 

I saw a video on a stand-up comedy act go over the surreal side of the fence pretty quick, it started off with a famous comedian you have known for over 20 years, to another famous comedian who brought some serous enlightenment toward the issue of television controlling what you and others see.

The Radio was the first means of entertainment before TV came into the picture, TV still compliments that aspects of radio even today.

You may ask how it compliments radio, and so I shall give you an example how it does.

Ever since radio wave transmissions became a reality late 1800‘s, its inventor went by the name of Guglielmo Marconi  who brought the telegraph” to life. 

download16Heinrich Hertz I’m thinking was the innovator of the concept, who realized that radio waves already existed in nature from the start.

(Heinrich Hertz pictured right)

Now before anyone jumps up to say…

“What about that Tesla guy? Didn’t he…” 

download17Yes that’s true, Tesla was also an engineer of radio wave production.

(Guglielmo Marconi pictured left)

Unfortunate, his lab was destroyed in a fire before he was able to put to a patent on the idea which freed the opportunity up for Marconi to seize.

images17I know Tesla was probably very pissed that he couldn’t follow through with this endeavor, and who knows what lengths he could have pushed radio to.

It was noted that he was able to send a radio signal up to 50 miles away, Marconi was only able to send a signal miles away…

Tesla was just scary smart, that should tell you right there about the man’s span of ingenuity and knowledge.

After a few decades radio would emerge from the ashes from radio wave experimentation, people were flocking to get a radio set into their homes to enjoy hours of entertainment and news.

Now all that I’ve said so far was just a start to one minor issue that would eventually lead us to where we are in 2016.

Its common factors to point out what people will hear and believe, when it’s given to us on a daily basis.

For radio it was a every day thing, or better yet it was a every day process.

An example of this could be something you heard from a neighbor, or a group of people who are talking about a particular event.

You wind up missing most of the information provided through basic conversations you so happen to listen in on, but you want the inside scoop.

Back then radio was the media source to get that inside information, and depending on the message you hear could change the way you perceive the information presented to you.

Whatever you choose to take away from the knowledge acquired now changes you in the slightest or dramatic way possible.

This my friend starts the conditioning process.

But the process will grow, and become more accessible, powerful, powerful not just though voices over the airwaves.

But visual patterns ultimately would accompany its audio counterpart, thus leading to the creation of Television.

For TVit was brand new spectrum of mind-conditioning for the general public.

Radio was already established in its own right, but TV would be the tie-breaker proving to be the true conductor of actions, reactions, ideologies, attitudes, and even bad habits.

images18Now I know John Logie Baird came up with his invention known as the Televisor“,  back in the 1920’s despite the fact that you have other inventors such as

(John Logie Baird pictured left)

Paul Julius Gottlieb 220px-Paul-nipkowNipkow  who invented a spinning disk contraption — of sorts — which later was referred to as the Nipkow Disk” which would lead to the device known as the Image Rasterizer.

(Paul Julius Gottlieb Nipkow pictured right)

3dimensions

On May 15 2012, Dr. Douglas Brown’s new book entitled “The Three Dimensions of John Logie Baird” was published by the Radio Society of Great Britain.

LOL, that’s a lot of transgressions to go through one would think.

 

download (12)Real TV came into the picture around the 1940’s (before then you just had the basic imaging contraptions), the reason that I say this was due to the mind-blogging trails & tribulations to create various components predominately the cathode ray tube (which is a specialized vacuum-tube in which images are produced when an electron beam strikes a phosphorescent surface) which made it possible to have TV today.

From the back story of TV comes the newer, sleeker way to intake the message of media.

The visual way that is.

Unlike radio, television could not only influence the mind through sound, but could also do it through the most important aspect in your life which is your perception.

Get it?

You know the term you probably heard before…

Through sight & sound.

Yea that’s the one.

From here we will go through the future of our lives, seeing the world differently, seeing good times from your favorite show, seeing the bad times through war or spawned controversies, that was just the way television brought it to you.

Whether it’s on a personal level or not, the television’s purpose was only to broadcast the images in front of your eyes, so what you see is what you get.

Just like radio, this is where the conditioning takes place.

The mind is powerful, but at the same time it’s weak.

Two key areas of thinking are logical, and non-logical.

(Wonder why his hands aren’t burning by now, I’m mean he’s literally holding the sun in the palm of his hands. Maybe that’s just from my perspective)

When you view TV programs, you know that they are fabricated shows told in story format to give you entertainment, drama, despair, information, or comedy.

While viewing these programs, your mind is taking in information and processing that information.

Now this is where logical / non-logical comes in at.

220px-Hatchetmposter 2So if you see a horror movie such as Hatchet”, is just a movie depicting a tragic story with a sinister twist.

220px-StepbrothersMP08 2

Or a “laugh-out-loud” let’s say… Will Ferrel movie, that keeps you cracking up until your eyes water non-stop followed by that slight burning sensation as a result from hysterical laughter. (The “drums scene” was classic cut-rug comedy at it’s best I have to say).

After seeing either movie, you now have new information from them.

So when some people see a movie, they might tend to associate a certain character(s) in either movie with someone they know.
Mmqdefault 2aybe in one of the movies there was a guy who was a geek and you thought about an unpopular kid in college or high school, or maybe a hot girl in the movie who identifies with an ex you dated in the past.images

 

(Two recognizable characters you should know from a “stereo-typical” movie about a group of unpopular teenagers back then) 

 

Most of what you’ll see is fiction when you watch TV, but you have to know that it’s not healthy to sit in front of the television just watching various shows that will fill your mind up with crap loads on info.

Majority of the information given depending on the content (most of which is fiction), can be considered garbage.

For the youth today in America, pointless shows are doing just that which is destroying their minds little by little each day.

Offensive, sexual, bad language, suggestive themes, visual illustrations, all play a part in this.

It’s even gotten to the point that many Americans (including adults not just children), do not realize that they are subjected to content like that all the time.download13 3 Most just shrug it off because its broadcasted in front of their faces 24/7, every where you look questionable content pops up, and commercials are really applying the tuning forks like pseudo-antennas” attached on each side of their heads corrupting their minds and well-being.

So what has brought us to this point in life?

Why does it seem like TV just keeps spewing out more damaging visual content every day?

What Majors Changing Has TV Brought Into Our Society Today?

  • Greedimages16
  • Destructive Attitudes
  • Selfishness
  • Self-Centered (thinking only about one’s own needs)
  • Pathological Lairs
  • Elevated Homicides
  • Political Correctness (on the stupidest mundane issues that don’t matter)
  • Kids trying to establish themselves as the adult in the family structure
  • Parents who sit back and let their kids have their way
  • Respect is dead among the majority of people period

These are just a few of the end results from TV, and it’s not to say you can’t watch TV, or kids shouldn’t be allowed to watch, no instead certain guidelines should be enforced when children are watching certain programs parents might consider too offensive.

For the parents, those who let their kids walk over them like a cheap dusty throw-away rug should know better.

Young parents out there have to know that they are the one’s in control, and that the kid obeys them not the other way around LOL.

This is why it’s very important for a kid to be raised and conditioned establishing their positive morality from a very young age, this will deter the chance for the child to turn out sinister and unmanageable by the time they reach age 6 – 7.

The average amount of time the average person spends in front of the television set is just a little over 30 hours each week. This doesn’t include typed programs which people view when they can’t do so because they have to be at work or school.

The television itself, generates beta waves.

download14Beta waves are secondary frequency waves which lie within the conscious mind (or what I refer to as the “normal” waking conscious part of your mind), the frequency range varies between .5 to 38 hertz. 

When watching TV the wavelengths are disrupted, thus the beta waves will divert to alpha waves.

The normal electrical activity of the brain when conscious and relaxed, consisting of oscillations (alpha waves) with a frequency of 8 to 13 hertz.

When the frequency waves are shifted, the individual will feel more relaxed as if they were put into a trans-like state (you can compare this to a person who daydreams).

This is where the non-logical part sneaks in, pushing the logical aspects of thinking out the window.

As a result the individual can be ‘inadvertently’ conditioned while in this state-of-mind, logical thinking becomes affected, and higher consciousness becomes dull and reduced.

download15Delta waves occur during a deep sleep cycle (or a “heavy” sleeper), the same goes for theta waves that occurs in a sleep cycle however you’re not in a deep sleep but rather a light sleep cycle (or when people say, that they are a “light” sleeper).

But for those who are up and awake, your beta & alpha brain wave activity can be altered without you even realizing it (this goes double for children). download7.5This is why parents would tell their kids back in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, I’ll even throw in the 80’s, to finish your homework first before watching TV. 

Bottom line to it all is the media as we know it, it can condition any mind to some degree or another.

It’s a dangerous tool that can set forth a potential “loose cannon” into society.

This ranges from someone who denies rules by enforcing their own rules upon others, if no one compiles with their rules, they would probably resort to violence to get their point across.

download6It’s no different when these actions are compared to that of the “unruly child” out in public with their parents, if they don’t get what they want they will violently act out until they do.

Guess what?

Each of the actions demonstrated might not have been either implicated by the parents to the adult or child in the depicted situations, the attitudes could be the result from examples they have seen from watching too much TV.

You also have to thinking about what they were watching as well because of the nature of their outburst.

TV today can be dangerous for the mind, just look at the violence that is portrayed from people who take it literally from what they are watching.

Adults know better, and they should have enough sense to know that it’s just a fictional movie or TV show.

For children, well its an old saying really…

Some things they just should NOT be allowed to watch until they’re old enough to better understand what they’re actually watching.

The rating system need an upgrade for kids these days, because everything on TV now is too corrupted.
