Augmented Reality: an enhanced image or environment as viewed on a screen or other display, produced by overlaying computer-generated images, sounds, or other data on a real-world environment. Abbreviation: AR
The subject of augmented reality is present in every area of the human experience these days from the way we shop to that watch television.
We see “AR” everywhere.
It is for this moment in time that I chose this subject a season of unexplained and inconclusive information about what is and what isn’t and the idea that the Truth and Lie can can occupy the same space at the same time and that this is “Normal”…
There used to be a time when politicians were known to “Talk out of both sides of their mouths” and we understood it to be part of “The Process “ of getting elected.
We at the same time believed that once elected our candidate would “ Keep their promises.
What is unfortunate is the fact the as we began to look for in others what we lack or desire to see in ourselves we somehow miss the mark.
Our Aim Is Off:
One mistake that we make when relying on or looking to others for guidance,direction or hope is, we forget or unremember (made up word) they are human.
There are many characteristics to what is person,people or human and number one would selfishness or self preservation.
This is why we have so many debates. These individuals want to appear in the best light.
So the question becomes why do we trust people (Not just politicians) but people.
I merely used politicians because they are an example of what I believe to be an extreme human experience.
I could have just as easily said lawyer of religious leader, because they are also good examples of what takes place when we “Forfeit “ our rights and surrender our trust…
When you don’t know yourself, you will often find yourself in the awkward situation of people misidentifying or creating an identity for you …-Arnold mrdadtate-
In all my blogs you will find one pattern that is consistent. “Never Follow”…
When we follow we surrender our right to know where we are going, why we are going there and what is the reason that we are going.
Think about it like this? In our definition of augmented reality we see first “It Is not reality “ and that there is no real need to believe it or treat it as real.
The other thing is …We Need A “ Device “ to transmit this reality.
Once Upon A Time:
This is the opening sentence of some of the best stories that I’ve ever read and it also speaks of a time when the idea of truth existed.
Or Is It A Fairytale:
There was a time in our short history that there was no place in a civilized society for a liar.
There was also a time that when a lie was told that once the truth arrived, the lie was exposed and expelled.
This reasoning created and maintained a clear path to what we come to know as being honorable and having integrity.
Imagine a time when the “ Truth had power over a Lie”…
Societal shifts take place all the time and it is hard to determine what causes the shift and there is also no way to determine how far the shift will last or for how long.
It appeared in many ways that we have become more sensitive,more feeling and more offended.
These personality traits have always considered “Feminine “
What..He’s blaming Women ?
Hold on I’m not blaming Women for the societal shift. I am however expressing or exposing what occurs when an idea or philosophy is spent too long in one particular direction.
What happens when one group or society has influence and what may occur when members within this group or society push back or just look for “Change” or “Relief”..
Wordplay and the shift:
We’ve added new words that are actually old words with broader definitions.
Words like Hate, Hating and Bully or Bullying…Oh oh there’s one more “Shaming “…
I bet you didn’t see that coming?
And some may say that I’m “Word Shaming”…?
Where the heck do these words get twisted?
These are the natural responses and may even considered “Organic “
You like that?
Where do these words come from and why are they being used to create a new and expanded vocabulary.
Here’s another one:
What tha? do you mean that the truth can be personalized?
That’s a good one and it takes me to my next point.
Turns out President Trump did not create the phrase. However this is an interesting connection to augmented reality and it also connects to the point that I mentioned earlier about truth and lies occupying the same space.
Augmented reality is not mean to deceive, air is meant to expand.
Get to the point already:
Our point is based on the way that we historically.
Identified and cleared up what was considered a lie.
a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood.
synonyms: prevarication, falsification.
something intended or serving to convey a false impression; imposture: dictionary.com
Even as we look at this definition we see that there are a lot of ways to defend a lie.
It wasn’t intentional.
It wasn’t deliberate
It was for your own good.
Fake news is a type of yellow journalism or propaganda that consists of deliberate misinformation or hoaxes spread via traditional print and broadcast news media or online social media. Fake news is written and published with the intent to mislead in order to damage an agency, entity, or person, and/or gain financially or politically, often with sensationalist, exaggerated, or patently false headlines that grab attention. Intentionally misleading and deceptive fake news is different from obvious satire or parody which is intended to humor rather than mislead its audience. Fake news often employs eye-catching headlines or entirely fabricated news stories to increase readership, online sharing and Internet click revenue. In the latter case, it is similar to sensational online “clickbait” headlines and relies on advertising revenue generated from this activity, regardless of the veracity of the published stories. Fake news also undermines serious media coverage and makes it more difficult for journalists to cover significant news stories.
Easy access to online advertisement revenue, increased political polarization, and the popularity of social media, primarily the Facebook News Feed, have all been implicated in the spread of fake news, which have come to provide competition for legitimate news stories. Hostile government actors have also been implicated in generating and propagating fake news, particularly during elections. An analysis by Buzzfeed found that the top 20 fake news stories about the 2016 U.S. presidential election received more engagement on Facebook than the top 20 news stories on the election from 19 major media outlets.
Anonymously-hosted fake news websites lacking known publishers have also been credited, because they make it difficult to prosecute sources of fake news for libel. The relevance of fake news has increased in post-truth politics.
With the expansion of technology, the need for views and ratings has been increasingly higher. For media outlets, the ability to attract viewers to their websites is a necessity in order to please advertisers that pay for advertising on their websites. If publishing a story with false content will produce a big caption and attract viewers it may be worthy producing in order to benefit advertisers and ratings.
We still have many unanswered questions.
There is another subject that we need to explore.
Because popularity has two sides, it is clear that what may be considered popular would also be considered loved or at least liked.
This isn’t necessarily true,when we looked at how we gain our information we find that maybe 90% of it is on our cellphones.
And when we factor in the amount of advertising (Not what you think) there thousands of articles and promotions that are design to gain and maintain your attention.
Whether you feel that you have a method or not there small even two second snippets that will interfere,interrupt and distract.
There also people, lots of people and even when you don’t know them or should I say “Know then yet”…? You will see them and will have some idea of what to think about them.
Not yet? Give it time…
This is another way a falsehood or lie get unerased (another made up word)
Popularity ( because when we like it Person we protect,cover and believe the best about them)
And when we dislike a person we want to expose them and have them seen in the absolute worst light.
It is this idea (we like or dislike someone) that creates and promotes the need and greed for Augmented Realities and Fake News.
Look at us as we debate what is true against what is not (proof in hand)
This is not a courtroom and even if it was there is also spin, and fake news is everywhere.
We have become a society of “Oh well, she said she didn’t do it “…
“He’s lying” and the only response he has is “No I’m Not”…
And then there’s the “ He did it” guilty verdict placed of accused “ Men Of Power and Position “ that only has one side.
The augmented Truth or the one sided defense?
In my blog “Me Too ” A story about what happens when Harry meets Sally. I explore the obvious and intentional deleted scenes of communication and contact when men and women communicate or engage, as well a the one sided “Guilty because you can’t be innocent death sentences place on the man.
We The People as long as it is (Not) part of but opening line of our Constitution have the individual and collective responsibility to to understand and rescue our humanity.
We must understand that there are nefarious,villainous and diabolical people in this world.
We must make sure that our sons and daughters are taught how to treat people and expect to be treated by people.
We must focus on the act as well as the individuals and call it out the moment that we observe the (Bad Behavior)
We must find a clear interpretation of what “Victim blaming” is a use in that context. Because when we enter into the arena of “Understanding “ we must identify action,interpretation,intention,motivational well as tone.
We must rethink what happened, and when did we become soooo involved with politics and media.
We must ask what happened that we have are no longer willing or desiring to live our lives ( Reality) and mind our own business? And Pursuit Of Happiness ( It’s In there)
When did every stubbed toe and splinter become world news?
One thing is for certain.
I am a conspiracy theorist.
And what if there is actually a reason to take us out of our reality?
What if media and multiple streams of information and voyeurism (peeping Tom) is the new drug?
Do you ever listen to people speak?
They sound strange speaking of Hollywood and tv folks like they know them or we care?
What if the idea of television programming was just that? (Programming)
What is happening to our radar when we believe everything in media and doubt everything and everyone in our lives.
My Brother Tim has a Blog “Question Everything “and I believe he’s on to something.
I do know we always say that information is plentiful and that people use to fear the Idea of burning books. ( Yes that was a thing)
However, we’ve rendered then obsolete. Why won’t we buy books anymore?
I mean we say that they are online but,what if there’s no internet or no signal?
What if while you are searching there are multiple distractions disguised as support and help or just plain advertisement?
Oh yes, I am a conspiracy theorist.
And you should be too or at least question the things that don’t make sense or insult your intelligence and beliefs.
Your life depends on it.
