Thinking Thursdays—February 11, 2021

Everybody traps their infinite feelings into a limited number of one-word descriptions. I feel happy, loved, sad, safe, alone. An artist's job is to describe feelings more accurately. For example, Ife told me this week, “It feels like I’m alone by myself when I’m alone with you. It’s my authentic self. I can be alone with someone else, but I won’t act like how I am when I’m alone by myself.“ That’s a beautifully crafted artistic statement accurately describing a feeling that can be translated into music, painting, and dance.

A quote about body goals:

"Exercising is extremely painful, but remember you’re in the cocoon. Morphing is painful."—Dwayne Walker

As technology and medicine advances we could eventually cure death, but one of the problems with immortality is getting to a point where life is boring. What if future humans simulated our reality to solve the problem of living forever? What if the simulation theory was just future humans intentionally trapping the immortal bodies in simulated finite lives so that they can continue to experience a sense of purpose.

The genius behind Basquiat is he paints like a child that has lived a full life. A wise child.

An illusion of choice:

You ever go to the grocery store and struggle to try to find something to pick? Well, your choices are more limited than you thought. These ten companies own all of your popular grocery store item brands—Nestlé, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Danone, General Mills, Kellogg's, Mars, Associated British Foods, and Mondelez. Look at them here.

Also, I created a new, more modern, World of Creatives logo. I'll be updating the site with this over the next few weeks:
