#notestoself Reading this was a defining moment in my life. I wish I remember the first time I read it. It is currently hanging on my wall.
It reminds me of Kiersey's first page in Please Understand Me II, that we are all so very different and our strengths are to be valued and we are not to be judged or leveled up to another because the life they are leading is their story, and we are in the middle of ours... It reminds me that AI algorithms, when in experiments and in research, in the next song we listen to, to what is pulled up as the next event on our phone, when we are connected to brain-computer-interfaces (BCI) and the computer, our phone, device, sees we are looking at the same thing and induces an action... despite what we are seeing, how we, you and i, arrived at that thought is never the same and the next step in how we are guided to believe or what image is pulled up next is not neutral because the person that coded it is not without bias. I know for those not in the coding world that sounds irrelevant but I wish we knew how much of our lives in this year is based on a line of code... This quote reminds me that other people's comments and reactions are of their own lives. It allows me to give grace when otherwise I would have not understood. It reminds me when I shoot with others and even though we are standing in the exact same vantage point our two photographs are never the same.
We see things as we are. (AI induced "So let us be light.")
