Seeing & Looking – Listening & Hearing

Ever been to a musical concert where people film the musicians in front of them? This filming is undertaken in a sub optimal situation be it people in front of them, poor microphone or small lens.

Suboptimal issues aside, they are filming the concert to what end, to say they have been?

They are looking at the concert through a lens and not seeing it.

Seeing is not the same as looking, one has an active component. The same can be said of hearing and listening.

Why not just be and trust your mind to make memories as we would have in the past when we had no choice but to experience and remember.

We now have more pictures, data and I would proffer that we have less memories, as we always think we can rely on this data stored digitally.
