Pay Attention to Everything But Context

Context = the sum total of our actions, at once. We can look at each one, but not the whole. Why is that?


Human-made noises are drowning out the sounds whales and dolphins use to communicate and find mates, environmental groups said Wednesday.

Noise pollution, partially caused by commercial shipping, seismic surveys and improved sonar technology, is making it harder for the animals, which use sounds to communicate over thousands of kilometres, to forage and mate.

As a result, the animals are losing touch with each other, environmental experts said at a UN wildlife conference held in Rome.

"Call it a cocktail party effect," said Mark Simmonds, of the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society. "You have to speak louder and louder until no one can hear each other anymore."

You mean: because we're all thinking of ourselves, we cannot apply our minds to anything that exists in a broader context than I, me, mine, convenience, pleasure and "rights"?

Guess that whole peasant revolution thing around 1789 or so is finally showing its true colors.
