Chapter 2:

A. Haiku of “Twitter” sensibility/logic regarding information

  • efficient
  • quick
  • easy
  • too-long-did-not-read reply to posts

B. Objective vs. Subjective Definitions

  • Parallelism: How your media choices reflect (and parallel) your real life qualities
  • Fitting your popcycle to the “frequency” of each different dimension
  • i.e. A Venn Diagram with all of the elements overlapping, not exclusive
  • Entertainment is the frequency that uses the most electronic sources

C. Atunement

  • Being aware and taking notice to which frequency is dominant
  • Am I a career oriented person?
  • finding our emblem helps to focus and guide decision-making

D. What is my natural stand point?

  • My “default” mood
  • my atunement
  • disposition
  • “that’s just me.”

E. Aesthetics

  • Haiku as Japenese form of their aesthetic
  • Haiku may be the dominant form of aesthetic, BUT…

What is your aesthetic?

  • we are not a passive reciever, but an active inventor/creator
  • “I like that, that, that, not that, and that.”
  • Wabi-Sabi: A Japanese Art Aesthetic that sees beauty in nature, as the time passes enjoy the natural denigration of the environment, “the wear and tear on the world”
  • We have control of our own aesthetic, like the conductor of a symphony, and we have control over which elements are the “violins,” or the loudest and most frequent

F. Middle Voice

  • Being both the sender and reciever
  • Listening to yourself

G. Obtuse Meanings

  • The third definition
  • Not literal (denotation), not figurative or symbolic (connotation), but the personal combination of the two.
  • Triggers to associations

H. Illumination and Epiphany

  • creating a dramatic quality in our writing
  • “we know what happened, but we have to make the audience feel that we don’t”
  • Keeping a little mystery in the story
  • Retrospective Reflection
  • Epiphanies can come from discovering the reasons behind why we do certain things, why we act the way we do, why we have become the person that we are.
  • “that really meant something to me” or “that was what changed my life”
  • Not always in a sequential life-course pattern- these can come at any time and remind us of no particular point in our lives
  • Almost an uncontrollable quality
