LEGO – Imagine by Jung von Matt | Great example of our visual intelligence

A good read on this broad topic is the excellent book from Donald D. Hoffmann: Visual Intelligence: How We Create What We See

Not that great TED-Talk from the future: Peter Weyland at TED2023: I will change the world (by Ridley Scott)

The good thing about fiction is that it reminds us that we still create the now and the future. Scott’s (and hey, I’m a big fan) melodramatic and not-very-well-visionized setting (all you see is here today) makes me look forward to a movie that I will enjoy, but that most likely won’t ask new questions and may provide no answers at all. This is still up to us…

Tom Wolfe coined the decade the “Me decade” due to a new self-awareness. Mao Zedong died and the market began to liberate in China. There was an oil crisis. After the first oil shock, gasoline was rationed in many countries. In Eastern Europe, Soviet-style command economies begin showing signs of stagnation. The Summer Olympics in Munich, Germany, witness the kidnapping and murder of Israeli athletes by Palestinian Arab terrorists. The Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. The Who, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Bee Gees, Abba and others play their music. Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all die at the age of 27. The space mission Apollo 13 nearly ends in disaster. Egypt signed the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty. There was a revolution in Iran. The world sees its first general microprocessor. The C programming language makes its debut. Consumer video games show up on the scene. Microwave ovens become commercially available. Margaret Thatcher was victorious in the UK elections. …
