Playing For Keeps

Nation/States as Pawns. Private  game. Who is playing. Not so anoymous as they were. But there is, of course, deep deception as part of the mix. Great story in the making. Like CITIZENFOUR.

Sony Pictures marketing?


Private organization(s) operating surreptitiously 'under' the front of government. Think Evergreen, Blackwater, Booz, Raytheon, SAIC etc. Most have a presence in DC. Though they are known in the public record, many of their deep secrets are not. Think: "The Company" - John Erlichman.

Teaser “Prototype"

Not a trailer, a teaser? Working Title: Good Sister.

Opened Final Cut. Have not been using it recently. I need to get up to speed again.


Later ... I am using it a lot more as you can see with the search: "TheStrokeProject".

Very early in the producer part of the "whole picture" process. Feeling good about it. Working Title: Stupid.

A lot more to learn. Further, I am ancient.

What could go wrong?

Inside My Head

Testing iMovie record on the MacBook Pro for my continuing conversation with sister Jude on neuroscience and my stroke. I will let it run while we talk with FaceTime on our iMacs - she in Seattle, yours truly from the Hibbard studio in Portland.

Sunday, the 20th of December, video chat scheduled at 1:00. Downloaded the full version of Call Recorder for FaceTime.  Tried it by calling Brad yesterday.

Generally speaking, perspective (the visual kind) requires light. Things observed are more probable when the relevant view is well lit.

Verifiable facts are not in question until they change. One has to be aware of the change.

A Bayes like inference mechanism is how the induction of prediction works in cognition.

On Not To Dream - Bayes

Editing film on super 8. Tools were primitive by today’s standards. So the 'universe" of possibilities contain both.

TV revolution in education. Not so much as smarter interactive internet now.

The network effects of life are beyond what can be achieved human artifacts to date. Experience is not current.

Machine Assist-Common Man

Appearing here a year and a half ago was my wondering about the so-called “deep state” connecting to the Snowden data.

After watching Portras's film, Citizenfour, the other faces (besides Snowden) are becoming clearer even though there seems to be a strong effort to suppress them.

The 'Person traces' become the focus to lead back towards inception. When they reach a threshold of coherence, the story becomes more real. Those stories are the glue that will hold Us (pronoun) together.

Same Old Song

I remember writing about this before here. There is more. Recall the firelight and smiling face in it. Dream from my childhood.

I guess it is called arrangement. The singer/songwriter, in this case, wrote the lyrics and melody but the later 1976 arrangement played with the Band in the series moved me.

As so it has been on poems of the musical kind. Especially so with the artist who wrote Forever Young.

Brain Incident

A discussion with an expert about what happened to me, especially over the last year and quarter. That person is my sister. She is a neuroscience nurse practitioner working the VA in Seattle.

I suffered a stroke on August 1st, 2013. I am happy to report a lot of recovery. Some aspects of  my brain functioning are better than before my stroke. Others, not so much.

We worked on trying to get out first video chat session on Veteran's day. Ended up using FaceTime. It was easier than the Google option,

Split screen with Buck Henry’s screenplay on left and the finished film on the right. Watching short segments while comparing them to the screenplay.

The minutiae of the movie reveals itself. J-cuts between scenes makes the story flow. Transparent because the audience is enaged. But "under the hood', great artistry.

Bohr, Einstein

“There is a history and, quite apart from it, a logical process leading to the same outcome. They coincide in our perception at the end point, but the processes are not the same. History is reality manifest. Logic can lead to the same observable conclusion but it is imaginary and therefore more generic.”

As the EPR paradox demonstrates, OUR reality is incomplete without the unknowable future?

Yours truly,

As we have attempted to show is previous posts, it is not sufficient for personal identification to benefit traditional organization entities.

As a  Person, your legitimate needs come first. The person network is designed to facilitate that.

Desert is rainy, dusty, hot, cold. City - lonely, impersonal and temporary.

MEMS sensors and software for wearables. State-of-art learning and/or education in this coming field?

Change is life. And beyond that? Something better, perhaps. Yes, there are optics and cameras (think GoPro). But wait!  Think of the possibilities inherent in wearable things made possible by our latest technologies.

Two component manufactures come to mind, ST Microelectronics and Texas Instruments. There are others, of course. But this is just the sensor piece. The software to make them useful is important too.

Nordic makes the wireless short hall parts. The internet of things, like wearables, more useful as a result.

Inexpensive Psychiatrist

I suppose this could be an explosive topic. But here it goes:

First a little background on what formed in my mind on the subject matter ...

So I had tried prescription drugs provided to by my father for feeling 'lost' in my childhood. He was an MD. Not a psychiatrist though.
