AUGMENTED REALITY: HOW WOULD YOU HANDLE THE WORLD AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

“In a world that is beyond our world.”


Technological innovation has been pushing the bar for decades. Yet as we look back at what was supposed to be the hot items, they are so generic looking now. Especially compared to the great products that are hitting the market in today’s society. We look at the past and say to ourselves, “Wow, that looks Grey Vintage Crt Tvawful.” “I remember when that was the in product that everyone wanted.” But it’s not an awful product, it’s just that the innovation to technology has made such leaps and bounds. I look at televisions in just my lifetime. The picture quality of a television in the past for what I thought was incredible, looks dated now. So what does the future hold?

And when I say what the future holds for us, how will we communicate in the future through various forms of mass communication. Because we already don’t use televisions like we once did. Now, our cell phones and laptops have replaced live television. It seems odd sometimes when I turnSpace Gray Iphone 6 on the television set. And you might ask yourselves, why all the T.V. talk? Well because the television has been the main source of how we get information out to the masses. But now that is rapidly going away and replacing itself with other forms of connecting to each other. But how will we use the communication?

Meaning, more and more, we will start to see augmented reality (AR). The computer generated graphics that were only in Hollywood movies, will now beach, grass, landscapebe of use to the populace. Seeing through the lens of Terminator and Robo Cop was seen as revolutionary in the 1980’s, and is coming to fruition through the creation of AR and VR (Virtual Reality). AR will be, in my opinion, better than VR. Because AR is existing in this real space with added forms of advancement. Like watching a movie from your AR headset in Central Park versus the VR, watching a movie wearing the headset at home, yet inside a theater in the virtual world.

Now, there are skeptics that feel that this form of technology will make us even more impersonal than we are now. I tend to disagree because we are more connected the more the technology advance. Pokemon Go proved how connected we are becoming. A game where people who were complete app, augmented reality, gamestrangers were connecting to each other to play the game. Other skeptics might see these advancements as a way to get in the way of daily activities. But, with the increase in innovation, people will become more active once you can incorporate the augmented world into your workout. Video games, such as first player shooter games will be all the rave. Just imagine, AR Call of Duty tournaments in Central Park.

In the end, we are reluctant to see what the future holds. You have people who are from an industrialized time period who see these advancements as a way to hurt jobs. But there is no stopping the technological advancements. You have to adjust and role with the punches. Because the change is inevitable, so get used to it. Time will always tick forward, as well as man with it. Adjust to the changes or be left behind.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR PAST FOR A BETTER FUTURE

Image result for past

“Moving toward the future, from understanding your past.”


Why do people find it so hard to move forward in their lives? One of the reasons is they have yet to come to terms with their past. And don’t get me wrong, your past does not automatically translate into future. But something that has happened in your past is a reason you make your decisions today. And if you are not able to understand this past, then how will you move forward. For instance, a woman might be trying to figure out why she has such bad experiences with men. Then she realizes she never had a relationship with her own father. And as the old saying goes, you link up with, as a man or woman, your previous relationship with a parent.

Now that’s an interesting concept; you wind-up with your parent. Because choosing a potential spouse is such a daunting task in itself. So who raises you from childhood to adulthood is crucial. Now, there is no guarantee that you’re going to have a great relationship if you’re raised with these great parents. But statistically, those raised in two parent households go off to have more successful marriages. And if you are having problems with your relationships or finding a successful relationship, look into your own life. Where in your life is there a link between you and your parent. You might also have been raised in good surroundings, but other aspects like controlling parents or not enough transparency didn’t prepare you for monogamy.

What about other aspects of your past that could affect your future. Issues that you have that keep you from advancing in your career. Very rarely have past performances that are poor, lead to future good performances. Unless, you recognize the past poor performances and correct them for the future. For instance, I am currently working on my next short film. My first one was ok, but there are some things I need to correct for my next one. If I am making the same mistakes, then I have not learned my lesson. So career choices in the future can haunt you if not curbed early on. But small things we tend to avoid, and later make those mistakes that effect in a much greater way years later.

Then again, is coming to grips with your past always lending itself to family situations and career? No, other reasons you look into your past, could be how to make the decisions for the future. You want to learn how to save money, well, analyze your past poor monetary choices. You want to buy a house, then lose the ways of renting because you’re the boss now. In the end, we all have something in our past that can determine the outcome of our future. It might be something as simple as adjusting your monetary expenses or fixing your love life. No matter what, be willing to look into your past and figure out what’s holding you down from accomplishing your future goals.

PAST VS. PRESENT: DOES IT MATTER?

Image result for past

“Is your past a reflection of your future?”

Should your past dictate your future? Or is it whatever you did in the past should stay in the past. Some people think the past is important others don’t. But what is important to you regarding what someone’s life was in the past. Does it matter in a relationship, in a societal situation such as on a job, or what about day to day interactions with people you don’t know. Let’s observe reasons a person’s past might matter or not matter. Such as a stranger moving to the neighborhood on a predator watch list.

If you have been placed on a list of names of people who are considered sexual predators people should be notified. Now what if this was in someone’s past? Should it matter if it was decades ago? Or does it not matter how long it’s been? If a man or woman were convicted of molestation 20 to 30 years ago and have lived their lives right since, some may dismiss their past. But considering a lot of former sex predators are placed in residential neighborhoods it makes parents nervous. Doesn’t matter how long it’s been, a sex crime against a child has no statute of limitations to a lot of people.

Well, what about something less predatory, like what if you are working on a job and someone was a convicted felon. Should the employer know? Well, on a job, this type of information has to be given up front anyways. Then if the employer has to know, does that mean other employees should know as well? On a job employees don’t have to know. What if the person with the felony was convicted for robbery/theft?  Other employees are not privy to this type of information either unless the employee shares this info, which most likely won’t happen. Well how about a sex crime? Especially if you’re a man convicted, this may rub some women you work with the wrong way.

Can we observe some other past history of a person that is for open discussion? How about intimate relationships? Should how many people someone dated be a topic of discussion? How about how many people that person slept with before you? These questions can be seen as subjective depending on the person you ask. I think that women are a lot more apprehensive about divulging their past information. It comes from so many double standards in our society. And any amount of guys a woman slept with before the guy she is with now may be seen as too many.

Well lets flip the script, does the past of a guy matter? What about if he’s cheated, been with a lot of women,  or even physically abused a woman he was with? Does any of this matter to the woman? The cheating and number of sexual partners may be something she could get over, but the physical abuse is something different. There are so many taboos with hitting women, that this might be unforgiven. In the end, a person’s past can either make them or break them. Whatever the case may be the choices we make tend to dictate the life we lead. And even if we turn our lives around, it could still lurk depending on the allegation.
