it is hard for me to visualize the second hand moving and still picture the whole clock (big hands) its like I can only see the fragment of the image of the second hand moving at the outer edge, across a few seconds.

am I still supposed to point my head 15 degrees above the horizon?

so basically I see it in 'my mind's eye' as fragments, but not really one whole things like I see in the picture above.


phew... these mental gymnastics are a wonderful workout!

go with the flow; just be on the right end of the wave

this is wonderful.

you said what i was looking for...

are thoughts fragmented?

that's what i am saying.

when i try it, i am able to visualize the clock's second hand for maybe five seconds at a time, steadily, but then it sorta glitches, kinda like a jittery video that is missing frames or whatever..

the 15 degrees issue was just to add something to the experiment that really means nothing.

in closing, if thoughts are fragmented... this affects how they will be stored and then it also affects their retrieval methods/etc..

again, thank you.

another little thing that i experiment with is that i like to watch people as they are pressing the button to cross a crosswalk..

how many times do i find myself pressing the button, even tho i just saw somebody else press the button?

it probably means nothing.

creativity and imagination, which are close relatives of each other, are two important components of that mechanism that we call intelligence.

my imagination tends to run wild and sometimes it just simply runs away from home.

a test for intelligence: ask some person to say something creative and then just shut up and listen.. with many people, you will be able to hear a pin drop that it will get so quiet.. but me, i just ask you if you would like to pick the topic or should i?

maybe I was lying earlier... I may have used an image of a clock, in my head as a reference point, even though I was THINKING of the WORD clock. I ignored it at first, but it happened so briefly... with a visual object, something I am used to 'looking' at my whole life, I think of thought in terms of sight, in an arrangement of objects that are grouped with words, in logical order of relevance to their characteristics as a visually stimulating set of objects, and motions, if that makes sense.

ANd as i practice visualizing the clock, my seconds get smoother, and I can now visualize the second hand going from :60/:00 to :01 and then I imagine the minute advance to, for example, 4:19-4:20, in unison with the second hand striking :01. And then I can visualize the second hand moving faster, and in turn speed up the whole clock so the 'hour' hand moves smoothly, in my minds eye, even though, AGAIN it is flashes, or fragments, that I use to tween the motion in my brain, rather than actually moving through each spot representatively.

so, are you saying that even tho i instructed you to NOT carry out the experiment that you actually did visualize the clock, even if it was only for a brief moment?

thx.

i found the following image on the web, ages ago, just thought i'd show it to you, maybe you will find it interesting.

now comes the time for me to say something that will cause every last person to vacate the room..

i am working on the design of a truly leading indicator.

okey dokey.

lucky for you I can't think off the top of my head what a leading indicator means, I assume its opposite of a lagging indicator
I can lend some more thoughts, if you'd like

leading is pretty much the opposite of lagging, precisely.

if a particular pair is at 1.3100 and i know that it is going to go up, like that..

i do realize that the odds of my putting this thing together are slim to none..

but i like those odds.
