FITNESS for TECHNOLOGY second, has forever, for me, been the primary
focus, at the core of developing the technological solutions required to
address the NEEDS of my clientele, rather than that which the clientele
naively believed, was what they thought they wanted to address the
problem they had.
HEREIN lies A TRUTH which drives the VERY TRUTH of a sustainable
LET'S CHANGE THE WORLD solution template. I first became aware of
the YIN & YANG TAIJI symbol of LIFE at Grammar School and at once connected its truth, to the spiralling of galaxies throughout the heavens. In the context of - FITNESS for PURPOSE first and FITNESS for TECHNOLOGY second, which for me, has forever been the primary focus, at the VERY CORE of developing the technological solutions required to address the NEEDS of my clientele, rather than that which the clientele naively believed, was what they thought they wanted to address the problem they had - IT WAS whilst on secondment to The European Upper Airspace Control Centre in Beek NL, that I was first introduced to Philips pioneering efforts to develop the Laser Videodisc. A technology which, for me at the time was destined to rule the rest of my time on this planet; and so it has turned out to be, because IBM who were first involved with Philips in the development, have since invented and produced a far more accurate blue laser, for 'BLU-RAY' products which satisfy our species maximum visual acuity of a matrix of 4096x4096 and 16.9 million pixels. I digress. Videodisc in latin translates to VIDEO DISCO, which to all intents and purposes relates to "While I TURN I see and LEARN" - and one of the discoveries that my team and I discovered - as an early 'fitness for purpose learning experience', with one of the first CAV discs [50,000 single frame storage, which had frame by frame access and manipulative capability) on which we had laid down 10,000 images for a Videodisc Library Project - was that if one viewed this image bank at a slowed down rate of 10 frames per second, the viewer was subsequently capable of remembering every one of those 10,000 images, where they were placed in the whole, and how each image was juxtaposed to those either side of it. Confirmation of the fact that as Buckminster Fuller well understood and as a scientist was willing to propose ... "Each and Everyone of Us IS a BILLIONAIRE" - IN THE BLINK of an EYE indeed.
The atoms in y[our] body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. SO you don't just look at a rainbow, YOU CREATE IT.
THIS IS pretty amazing, especially considering that
ALL the beautiful colours that you see represent less
than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.
