fun! ah, yes, i remember that. i'm printing point 6 out and sticking in our canteen. :-)

Worm holes, de javu, original spontaneous thoughts.....All the same thing to us.

Creativity thought is just a big real time irrelevant hallucination!

is one

Richard. Are you on drugs? If not, maybe you should be.
And it's deja vu, as in 'already seen'.

Am not on drugs!

well if you have a "Strange worm hole into the future" as per the end of the post, then you have "already seen" something as in "de javu".

Thus, one step ahead or ahead of your time, your ideas could appear to be irrelevant to some, hence "One step ahead to some can be one step behind, to others".

"Imagination as a real time hallucination" is an idea suggested by William gibson in Neuromancer. Great book!

Winners don't do drugs. However If losing means failing, the picture at the top of this post suggests we are all on something!

Apologies for being abstract, I work in a place devoid of Food for thought!

See I think drugs have done some good things for us. If you don't think drugs have done good things for us then do me a favor. Go home tonight and take all of your records,tapes and all your CD's and burn them. Because, you know all those musicians who made all that great music that's enhanced your lives throughout the years? Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreal fucking high on drugs, man.

love all the people all the time...

great stuff!!! bill hicks rocks

1) Thanks for sharing Russell.

2) Bill Hicks is my co-pilot.

I come back from vacation and find this outstanding post. Just great. Thanks Russell.

I know it feels noble and right, but something about the idea of brands influencing culture, when extrapolated, kind of creeps me out, especially if it's a one-way street. I read some poll in which a suprising percentage of people defined their personal identities by the brands with which they surrounded themselves. Art, religion and movements traditionally shape culture more than brands, all theoretically institutions not completely driven by money. Though commerce has always been a dialog, up until recently consumers only spoke with their wallets or word of mouth. Now they have more of a voice, and with more people making buying decisions with consideration of their impact on issues that matter to them, maybe culture and brands can afford to influence each other positively for both. Or I could be blowin' dope. What a nice, thought provoking post. Thanks.


>> hold everyone in the same standard.

couldnt agree with you more. it comes with a lot of frustration when you dont see the big picture but in the long run it always pays off. too bad only a hnadful of the agencies worldwide have a firm belief in this concept
