We stumbled on this lovely 3 minutes with Laurie Anderson, and found it calmed us and made us THINK. (We also loved seeing her cooled out, very real space). It was made by Dropping Knowledge.org, a website  that “invites you to question yourself and the world around you. Every time you ask yourself a question, a new dialogue begins…”

Anderson frames her question so perfectly, we won’t give it away. Here’s the book she mentions if you’re interested in pursuing the ideas: Within the Context of No Context by George W.S. Trow. Read it online here.

What’s your question?

  1. this is quite beautiful…i would love to have a cup of tea with her and a nice slow chat…interesting thought…the idea of the distance between you and the group vs. you and yourself…gives me a chuckle…thank you.

  2. I adore her dog…so cute! I found the illustration of the concept in her military example quite interesting. Especially because I was just talking to a friend about this yesterday. What Laurie is saying (without saying) is that there is smoke in front of the mirror of Personal Choice. A good daily question to ask for achieving more clarity on this issue could be: when we make (any) choice, will it shortening the distance to ourselves or to the masses?
