Stories, News, Gossip

sheep

I will kick off my Journal by saying what the image above means to me. We hear stories (news, gossip, etc.) and think we’ve grasped the story. Not true, of course. Unbeknownst to our frail human faculty the truth is far from that. A big dig deeper than that by far. Yet we hear something off the cuff (or in depth) and walk away (or fall, like the sheep) thinking we know it all. Bullwinkle the Moose is my totem animal in this regard. Even if we know we are subject to closing information loops we can’t help ourselves from doing it. Thus the sheep falling off the cliff. And we are also the sheep above, oblivious and waiting for our moment to be fooled. “Meet the new boss / Same as the old Boss.”
