What the Bleep do we know?

We don't know any Bleeping thing. I really like this movie. It is a lot some books I have read that tell about the universe being controlled by our thoughts. It we have negative thoughts then that will attract negativity to us. If you think positive then life will go good for you. I like this thinking because in a basic way everyone believes this. Many people tell you to think positive and have a positive outlook on life. This is exactly what the movie is talking about. So if people say they don't believe in this then they are most likely full of crap. Everyone has this kind of thinking it's just how deep they believe it and how far that believing goes.

But I love the idea that our thoughts and emotions can have such a more substantial impact on our lives is great. I love that idea. Though the idea also worries me considering how screwed up most of the world is. I remember a movie I watched where the Devil or Antichrist tried to get the entire world to communicate in one thought and with all this conscienceness focused on one idea could make that idea come true. So theoretically all these thoughts believing that God didn't exist could erase God from existence.

Also a book I read when the people stopped believing in their gods, those gods slowly disappeared and cease to exist without faith or belief holding them in exist.

This idea is amazing thought.

Midterm, Better late than never

Midterm. Came and gone but we are forever. Not really. The single best aspect of this class is when that one guy deleted his art without ever seeing it. It was really cool. I wasn't the most excited about it. That class was the most I have ever seen someone so excited. Brandon went crazy about it. Just seeing someone so excited about something like that made that class one of the most memorable or our classes so far.

What I want to take away from this class. Hmmm. I want to be able to take an idea and think about it in a different away. I really liked the fork assignment. I'm sure most of the projects didn't live up to Beth's expectations but it was our first class and we were just starting out. But that project started me thinking and wondering what I could do with this fork? It was a good start that got my hopes up about the rest of the class. We started sitting around talking why this class isn't working the way it should instead of just going on, doing more assignments that would change our way of thinking. Too much sitting around talking about what to do than actually doing.

Onions, Brings a tear to your eye

For the onion assignment I write about our in class project with newspapers. Our word that we were given was death. With our paper we took the obituaries and created a flying crane. So by taking death(which is the obituaries) and created a flying crane which is life. We took something that was one thing and turned it into another. It is still the same but has even more meaning to it.
