A Virtual Reality Past and Present

Real Estate Agent 40CA1147997

It all began many years ago at my first visit to a baseball game and an umpire made a call that some did not appreciate. They started a crescendo of catcalls at him and it was then I began to appreciate the aspects of the HUMAN factor of errors in life.

As I got older the television became a factor in so many lives and sports became a watchable event for many. This also began the moments on Monday of the Monday Morning Quarterback and the HUMAN factor of errors began to erode. Didn't we think instant replay was great?

Through many years of advertising photos of many things became videos and the rise of more opinions as to wh was right and who was wrong.

A president wanted us to go to the moon and because of this electronic's became smaller and smaller until everyone had a computer and then a handheld smartphone which allowed even more opinions and the rise of businesses over the air! The news was given to us instantly about what was going on in the world and again the news changed to opinions of what was and is going on.

Yes, it is good to have an opinion but somewhere along the way truth was lost and there became so many experts as to who was the best or who was wrong.

Hopefully, after the virus and isolation pass, we will become smarter and adapt to the many changes that will be sure to come.

Good morning Raymond. Human error or just another perspective? Maybe Michael Jacobs can ponder this one? Enjoy your day!

Hello Raymond - Becoming smarter and adapting is likely a lesson that will surface in how history reflects these times.

Hi Raymond E. Camp - The world is certainly a microcosm compared to not too many years ago.  I think back to the uproar in Eastern Block countries when Western fashion such as jeans finally hit them. 

It will be interesting to see how countries adapt to being able to isolate against future contagious diseases.

It will definitely be interesting to watch how we all adapt...perhaps there will be less bickering, less divisiveness..those are my wishes.  A

Changes that come from bad things are rarely good for our freedoms.  I don't want to adapt much, I want the problem solved.

Morning Raymond.

I made a mistake yesterday, I'm sure I'll make another one today.  That's how I learn, some have been painful

Hi Raymond- We do have an overload of information thrown at us hourly, don't we. Change happens and each one of us can choose to adapt or not. It will determine how we go forth...thriving or being weighed down by what isn't.

Loved your post I had this conversation with Diane tonight, it all started when Walter Cronkite started finishing the news with "That is the way it is".... well not really that was his OPINION... today we do not get NEWS we get OPINIONS by Journalists what happened to having News Reported by REPORTER?? just wondering...Endre

I agree with Endre!  The actual news instead of opinion/human errors would be nice.  The new normal of selling a house - will be interesting to see what that entails!

Raymond E. Camp - This is a great and truthful post! Thank you, for writing it and conveying the message about opinions and truth. Journalists should be reporting the facts and not their opinions. When did it become okay to do that? Politicians should be reporting their views on issues of importance and not fake news or one sided opinions while pointing fingers sideways, behind them, and directly at opponents. 

This is an excellent post, well written,  and very educational too.

They tend to forget they have more fingers pointing at them when they point the index finger!
