So every now and then I watch something or someone I get addicted to and I try to mix it up with magic. From Steve Jobs to Apple products, to Michael western in Burn Notice to Jeff Winger in Community. I Follow them as i tend to follow up their personalities.
The first line, "You didn't notice because you're an idiot. Oh, don't look at me like that, nearly everyone is an idiot. The problem is that we all look and see, we just don't observe."
There is so much we miss, day after day, we tend to ignore things around us even if they're staring at us in the face. When we talk to someone who we're close to, we notice certain things and try to figure out how they might be feeling. What we don't do is observe. How many of you have tried staring at someone till they swallow and you can see their Adam's apple move? Or just that slight gesture when we know that someone has swallowed. We notice that, but we don't know what to make of it. That is fear. Unless of course someone is eating something. That motion or gesture or movement or whatever we might want to call it, is fear.
How many of us have seen people tap their foot while sitting in a train in a First class compartment or anywhere, and tapping their foot nonstop. We see that, but what we don't realize is that the tapping of the foot signifies impatience, or awkwardness in a social setting. Similarly the rubbing of two fingers of the same hand together or scratching one hand constantly is nervousness. Covering your "gonads" while talking is a classic example of hiding stuff. Bringing your hand close to your face, either to rub your nose, ear or eye is a classic example of lying. ALL of this we notice, but we do not observe, we do not know what to make of it.
And with a gulp which might signify fear on my part for making this post slightly on the longer side, I move on to the second .
The Dialogue being, "I have no idea how many planets there are in the solar system, because unlike the rest of the world, I don't fill my brain with stuff that isn't supposed to be there."
If any parents of kids who know me are reading, you might not like the rest of the writing , as you say, "A bad effect on your kids." Well i just made a deduction there. I deducted what you would think. Technically i thought what you would think about this article. You have been warned...
We cram our brains with weird math’s problems, chemical formulae which we'll never ever use unless we end up making bombs with the Al Qaeda and we also have our plate full with weird historical dates only for our exams.
If we didn't have exams, we never ever need to remember things which are not important. I for one may seem quite aware of things around me to some of you, but the truth is, I have absolutely no idea about half the things.
Especially politics. As my dad is in politics I recently got laughed by my friends because I didn't know that Akilesh Yadav (UP's new Chief Minister) is Mulayam Singh Yadav's son. If I read something like that somewhere, I'll remember it for quite a while, but that's stuff that I don't NEED to remember. What I need to remember is the reaction of people to certain "tricks" I do.
Some of the expressions of people and their meanings, from time to time, the order of cards in a deck, not to forget the tricks or illusions or whatever you prefer to call them that I come up with day after day. All that I need to remember because it helps me in what I do.
If you work in an office, you need to remember your deadlines, if you paint, you need to remember certain strokes that work better for you than others, if you cook, you need to remember which salts or recipes work for you , If your a programmer you need to remember the codes you use every now and then..
Don't fill your head with stuff you'll never use.I dont care how much marks people score. I have seen people way way much intelligent than the people scoring 90% marks in exams. Study is a thing everyone does but nobody asks why ??
At the end of the day the question ends up in money. TO EARN MONEY AND TO LIVE A BETTER LIFE THAN WE ARE LIVING NOW. I JUST KNOW THAN WHEN WE COME ON THIS EARTH WE ARE WRAPPED UP IN A WHITE CLOTH & WHEN WE LEAVE ... WE ARE AGAIN WRAPPED UP IN A WHITE CLOTH ( AT LEAST IN MY RELIGION..) & BURNT! SO Common THINGS IN BOTH CASES ARE NONE OF THE CLOTH HAD POCKETS... If you know what i really meant to say.
And after reading that last sentence, I leave you to thinking if you'll ever need to remember the stuff written in this post, but I also know that you might not be able to forget it.
So those were the two amazing things about deductions. But as always, there is "One more thing..." Open up your brain... and observe the world.
