Collaborative Sharing + David Icke
Back to the epiphany though: I realized recently that I have been limiting myself significantly for quite some time now. Every post I’ve published has been 100% original composition. Every thesis of every article I’ve released is something I’ve come up with entirely myself. And I’m super proud of that. But when reconsidering my goal of sharing insight and consciousness with the world, I realized that I could be working much more synergistically with the people who inform and inspire me.
Here’s an analogy: some musical artists record tracks that are 100% original composition. And that’s awesome. It takes a ton of hard work and creativity. Some artists, however, use previously recorded works, and transform them into something fresh, interesting and though essentially the same- put a new spin on what you’re hearing. Is one approach better than the other? I don’t really think so. Both have their place. You don’t wan’t your music to be all samples, but occasionally reusing a sound that really resonates with you- well, that’s cool too.
Anyway, here’s where I’m going with this: as much satisfaction as I get from creating my own original articles, I come across a lot of really awesome media every day. I think that going forward, it would be cool to occasionally share some articles, videos or audio that was created by someone else, but with a short “preface” or “afterward” that lets me put my spin on it. Kind of like remixing, but not really- more like collaborative sharing
So, for my first collaborative media sharing, here’s a video which has been left, right, and center in my attention for the last week or so. It is a 7-Hour (yes, 7-hour) event put on by David Icke, in which he explains his mind-blowing, radical, and unbelievably insightful understanding of our current state of reality. Hard to really know what I mean unless you just jump in, I guess.
Final note: Icke’s ideas tend to shock a lot of people. Don’t be surprised if you hear something that sounds totally insane at first take. As David even affirms though, you shouldn’t take anything he says at face value. Simply bring an open mind to what you hear, and see if his concepts don’t start to make more and more sense as you start to consider things from a new perspective. Enjoy
