Here’s a great quote from the movie “The Descendants”: “All of this is about one thing. Your self-awareness.” It’s a great metaphor for all of life.
The quote is from the first line of The Descendants, where Descendant (played by John Cusack) is talking about how he knows he is a descendant, but that he’s not sure how he got his powers, and he’s not sure he wants to be one. He is forced to let it go, but he doesn’t. He continues the line by saying “I am not who I am. I am not what I was.
The quote is about the fact that we can forget about our past experiences, but we can never forget our self-awareness. It’s a reminder of the fact that we are indeed what we are. We are what we want to be, and we are what we want to be remembered.
I have to admit I really love this quote. I like how it is used to remind us not to be afraid of the unknown. We always need to remind ourselves that we are capable of anything. We need to remind ourselves that we are not stuck in some time loop where we are waiting around for someone to come and fix us. We just need to remind ourselves to not let fear of the unknown stop us from living our life.
I have to admit I was pretty skeptical about the idea of a space-age measuring device. While I can appreciate the concept, and the idea of a device that is portable and easy to use is certainly cool to think about, what kind of data does such a thing collect? I can understand the idea of people taking data on the ground but I doubt that the data would be of use to anyone.
Well, after all, we could have a conversation about the value of such a device. It’s not like we’re going to leave a data trail that could be used to track us down. We just need a place to keep an eye on ourselves and the world around us.
But I think you’d be hard pressed to find anyone that doesn’t want a data trail. If you’re going to keep tabs on your every move and your every thoughts, you’d better hope you’re not being followed. That’s my only point. We’re not here for data collection, we’re here to help you take control of your world.
I just don’t think the kind of data that would be useful in tracking us down would be much. We could, of course, put our GPS chips to good use, but that would be for personal use and wouldn’t be very useful in tracking down a criminal. More likely we’d get a cell phone tracker that would only be useful to track us down if we had a cell phone, which is a pretty ridiculous assumption.
The quakemeasuring device is designed to measure the size of earthquakes. It’s a small device that has a display that records the size of the earthquake and sends a signal to an app on our phones. This app will let us know how much the quake has affected our planet, and since this is an app that we have control over, I think we can assume that it’s a very accurate indicator of our planet’s condition.
We can also assume that we can control the amount of damage we cause by using the device, since we can set up alerts to go off if we go over a certain amount. While this may be a little paranoid, I would imagine that we would not be able to control the amount of damage, but there is still a lot of speculation that is being done in the press about how accurate this device is.
