I think the project That got to me the most was Brittany. I really didn’t know what Asexuality was. When I heard of it in humans and read 2 things about it. One was they preferred the cake which made me think it was a choice. The other was due to they didn’t they would want to be in a relationship. I thought sex drive and relationship where the same thing, but as soon as she said she was in one and wanted.. well opened my eyes.
A year ago my Girl friend told me she never wanted to have sex. I agreed we should wait till we were married. She sounded dis-pointed in that answer. She then went on to explain that she didn’t like me in that way. She seen I was concerned and she then tried to explain that she still loved me. She didn’t understand it either. I told we are not even engaged and all that’s in the future. Maybe she was scared and needed to warm up to the idea, but for now not to worry about it. I plan to talked to her today about this. I’m pretty sure this is information she needs to see. If she is asexual then this will allow both of us to understand it and find a way to make this relationship work for the long term. I feel this will not change much in the relationship. I do feel bad for disregarding what she said. I took for granted I knew more about her than she did, and an apologize maybe in order. I will update this once I know.
I feel this proves how brave people are. No would have to know she was any different but know she can be more conformable being her self and at least taught me this is a thing and helped me understand this . As I been stating Fear seems to limit our knowledge and by Brittany Facing it she enlightened me.
I was surprised no one ran out of the room. O well. Over all people reacted about how I said they would. The one thing people did do was giggle a lot. I know when I’m scared I laugh and giggle. Some how a laugh and screaming are similar but your uncontrolled giggling gives you control over the rest of you.
Which probably helped people be brave.
To sum up why people are brave and even just go about living in a scary world was:
For others, themselves, and control.
I feel that’s a good counter to all the fears we have.
Not sure if there is anything I would change. I feel it was a simple and strong message I wanted to prove and I feel it work out even better they went a full week without knowing why she was there.
I didn’t mind this movie at all. My only problem is they are trying to sell this as a religion. They are most likely jumping the gun on this, but if you need proof that not everything can be explained or the universe is strange then this might help you reinforce your believes for the better or for worst (who can really say).
With that aside this video was mostly grounded in facts, even if some interpretation are not what main stream science believe.. But due to this is all new info none of these have been proving wrong so this is all valid “research” When dealing with quantum physics it really does throw everything out the window… even science.. the process that discovered it. Science has had one promise and only one promise. If all data can be collected then we can know everything.. Saddly quantum physics and chaos theory have proven science can not live up to this promise and is out dated as many scientist believe religion is.
If the subject of us controlling our self I totally believe this. It’s not easy but changing your point of view to make you happy is possible. Funny thing is I did this with no guide. I knew all the chemicals I needed to be happy where already in my head and I didn’t need anyone else if that be the worst case. Luck for me it was never close to the worst case.
Finally is “The secret” part of the video. I feel this gives in to reckless faith that something will happened becaused you have willed it. I will give the video credit to at least stating wanting something can be counter by someone else wanting it. So the science side of me has totally disregarded that. But maybe I’m a little superstitious, or need the feeling of control in my life. Without going into detail I have tryed it.. a few times and maybe I’m lucky or what ever…..
1)I believe fear is a biological process, but is not always right and hold us back. Things that look and act human seem to enter a uncanniness that we can not shake.
2) Like robots and dolls. I am going to have my sister dress up as one even if its my day to go or not. If its not then I will just watch and explain on a later date.
3)My guess is some people will not be able to take it and may scream or even leave.. But My guess people will also be brave. Some will not see her threat at all due to they know here but others might hold back there fear. There people are the people that will want to ask “why are you brave” and how do you think being brave is smarter than trusting our instincts.
I feel fear is an important emotion that protects us from doing something from that could injure or kill us. It was important as we evolved. Saddly fear can get in the way and prevent you from doing great things and even worse… to rip off star wars lead to hate. Its really odd such a import thing to our survival also has hindered us. Maybe thats why we value brave people so much.
Was not in class last week.
