World Builder ~ For Maya

Saturday, July 25, 2009
Have you ever wondered where we are with simulation? Better yet, do you wonder where we are going? I am always searching for material that not only teaches, but also 'touches.' I have a lot of friends that know the details of my complicated past, and those friends are always looking for 'thing' for me as well. Interestingly, a friend of mine stumbled upon this video and sent it to me this morning. It's phenomenal, and it represents, to me, a great deal of what simulation is and where it's going, and what OUR potential is. On the other hand, it also points out that simulation is also about heart, it's not all about computers, dolls, and fake blood. There is often times a lot of compassion that goes into the simulation that we create. The amount of work that goes into creating that and expressing that love is often times missed, and the reality is the reward is often something internal.

I dedicate this little video to my Maya... "and she played on."
