"Cartier Bresson has formed me a lot. I have been in Paris just to meet Cartier Bresson. I had no money, I moved to Paris, I knew the restaurants where he was going every day. I stayed outside the restaurant. Waiting. Some day I saw Cartier Bresson entering. I thought: Now I wait, he is going to eat." See: '"Go to take a reading Luciano Tovoli"' [ interview with Cinematographer Luciano Tovoli ]

SAR_4

Above: Footprint after today's completion of 32K-lunch-time-SAR 4. Todays weather was the experience of the Creation of the Heavens and the Earth within roughly 2 hours30. Start under fully-clouded-sky with rain. First step on the beach at sun-break: clear blue sky, fresh wind from South/West, deep-tide. Next: partly cloudy with silver sun reflections, then sky opened again to end the training and the day in Friday sunshine.

There is an excellent study to be found on the SSI Website (Strategic Studies Institute). From the booklet 'Forging an American Grand Strategy: Securing a Path Through a Complex Future Selected Presentations From a Symposium at the National Defense University' (pag.80): "... Our greatest problems are not political; they are biological. Specifically [...] that science and anthropology converge to prove that the human brain has not evolved to keep up with human progress. Complexity has outpaced the brain’s ability to process it. This causes it to hit [...] a cognitive threshold, defined as the difference between the slow speed at which the human brain can evolve and the rapid rate at which complexity grows".

There is more interesting stuff to be found in the book; such as the case around a questionnaire that asked people in many different disciplines across the sciences, engineering, arts, futurists and other fields too numerous to mention about their projections of the future. From page 103: "...the possibility of a technological singularity by 2060 is noted, when robots will be smarter than human beings..."

Footprint_SAR_3

Above: Footprint after deserted dune-/beach-scape SAR 3. Fresh day, some wind from the South/West, with silver sun reflections -- 30K. Meeting Peer -- master-carpenter and builder of the new, still located at the geographical center of the Dune/Beach-training-route, 'Beach Inn' place -- driving his Land Rover on the beach, is always fun -- we regularly run into each other. Our talk lasted about 20 minutes while several flocks of returning birds from the South flew over and two bulldozers shovelled excess sand back into sea, to make way for the return of the summer-beach-houses.

Todays training dedicated to [Land Rover owner] Bastiaan Houtkooper and his web-hosting company 'Zebra hosting'. In a (telecom-)world dominated by moguls and morons, Bastiaan founded, owns and operates a state of the art web-hosting company -- his costumer support and brilliance in trouble shooting is beyond comparison, rooted in deep empathy and years of experience as high-end cinematographer for commercials mainly.
