World Builder ~ For Maya

Saturday, July 25, 2009
So, this video has had such an impact on me, I want to make sure it's at the top of my blog list. I am re-posting it, and my blog thoughts. I really want people that come to my blog to see this first... at least for the next few days... before they see Lady Gaga.

Have you ever wondered where we are with simulation? Better yet, do you wonder where we're 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 'things' for me as well. Interestingly, a friend of mine stumbled upon this video and sent it this morning. It's phenomenal, and it represents, to me, a great deal of what simulation is, 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 may be something internal rather than external.

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