I’m a huge fan of the phrase “three levels of self-awareness”. I’m sure it’s true, but I’ve never seen it used. Many of these statements are true, but they are also true for the whole statement, as well as for the phrase “three levels of self-awareness.
There are actually three levels of self-awareness in life. There is the level of awareness that is self-awareness. This is where we are aware of our actions and what we are doing. Then there is the third level of self-awareness which is the one we call our emotions. This is where we are aware of our thoughts, our memories, our feelings. Im not sure what this is called, but what Im sure of is that the entire phrase has no connection to the first two.
We’re aware of our behaviors, our thoughts, our emotions, and our memories. Our emotions are what makes us who we are, and our behaviors are what make us who we are. For example, the person who is aware of themselves as a person is not the same person who is aware of themselves as their friends, their family, and their job. We are aware of our thoughts, our memories, our feelings, and our emotions, but we’re not aware of our behaviors.
So you see, being aware of one’s emotions, thoughts, and memories is not the same as being aware of one’s behaviors. When we act on what we think we feel and what we think we know, we’re acting on our self-awareness. But our behaviors are the actions that make us who we are. In the world of The Matrix, the person who is aware of their emotions are aware of their emotions.
As someone who has tried to practice what is termed “play it by ear” for years, I can tell you that it is a pretty effective strategy. It helps to think in a certain way and it also helps to pay attention to your environment so you can react appropriately to situations. At the same time, it is important to remember that you are always a part of your environment. No one is an island unto themselves.
There are other methods of achieving self-awareness, but play it by ear is one of the most effective ones. I’m pretty sure that there are other ways to attain it though. Like the person who doesn’t have a cell phone. Or the person who doesn’t use their car as a means of transportation. Or the person who doesn’t eat meat. Or the person who doesn’t ride a horse.
The first thing you have to do is to acknowledge that you are always being played by somebody else. It sounds corny, but it really works. The next step is to realize that you are always being asked to act one way or another. Sometimes you have to act. Sometimes you have to do what others want you to do. Sometimes you have to do whatever is required to get what others want in return.
There are people who just don’t “play it by ear”, as the saying goes. They are really good at what they do, but they just do the same thing over and over again, in the same way that they would do if they were the person they were supposed to be doing it to.
This is what makes the new Deathloop so interesting. Even though there are eight Visionaries, it seems that their entire rule-set is based on what they say and how they act. We see these Visionaries in action, and their only goal is to make the party continue with their boring ways. There is no sense of fun in the way they go about their task, so they are willing to do whatever it takes to get what they want.
It’s a bit of a shock when the players start to get bored with the game, and a bit of a shock when they start to get bored with the game. It is important to remember that death-lovers are not the sort of people who watch movies, play games, and play music. They are the sort of people who are always trying to do things as fast as possible, and they have no sense of the time or the importance of time.
