I’m so much into my photography, I’ll often need to pull out a photo album, flip through a photo gallery, and then decide what to post. In the same fashion, I have a lot of time and a lot of photos to review for future projects.
The problem is that we process our tools, the things that are useful to us, so we see things in a way that we can’t see them for ourselves. We take them out of context, we look at them in a way that makes it seem like we know what we’re looking at. And then we put them back in the same way we put them out of context. And then we notice that the context is different and we don’t understand why.
So we are really good at processing things, but like most people we don’t have a good grip on how we process our tools. This is a huge problem because it seems like the more we process our tools, the less we understand how they actually work. A problem that goes hand-in-hand with this is the “I don’t know what I’m looking at” syndrome.
I’m not a fan of this. This is a really common problem I see with people who are highly visual. When they use their tools, they look at them and say, “I dont know what im looking at,” and then they look at a picture and have no idea what they are looking at. This is very similar to the I dont know what Im looking at syndrome, only this is more pronounced since the person isn’t used to looking at pictures.
The problem might be worse. In this case, the person is not a visual person. In this case, the person is an auditory person. In this case, the person is a tactile person. In this case, the person is a linguistic person. In this case, the person is a kinesthetic person. In this case, the person is an emotional person. In this case, the person is a physical person. In this case, the person is a cognitive person.
The difference between visual, auditory, tactile, and kinesthetic is subtle, but it is there.
I know for any of us who has had a computer, the first thing that happens when you type on a keyboard is that a bunch of different bits jump into your brain. These bits are called a “key”. This is what gives you your keyboard. This is what gives your computer its power. The key is an extremely complex structure that makes your computer do all kinds of things.
The same is true for our brains. When we type on a keyboard, a bunch of different bits jump into the brain, some of which are called motor neurons. These motor neurons are all in the right place at the right time. They fire when a key is pressed. The brain then processes these bits into commands and sends them to our muscles. In a computer, this is called the microprocessor.
Some of these motor neurons also fire when you use your fingers to operate your keyboard, or to pick up your pen to write. This is called the primary motor cortex. This is a cortex that is so tiny that when you touch it, you feel a little tingle. In general, the microprocessor is a tiny computer that can control all kinds of other things in our brains. This is good, because a single one-chip computer is hard to make well.
This is not a bad thing. Our brains are very large because we evolved to use them for many different things. They can be used to process language, plan for survival, play video games, drive cars, and basically just do everything. But in the case of making tools, they are so tiny that they cannot be made well.
