Tri-Parallax Awareness

Tri-Parallax Awareness

Recently I was talking to a good friend of mine online, and we were discussing paths and awareness. They told me he had heard of a term known as Tri-parallax Awareness.

In thier words ” ‘tri-parallax awareness’ was introduced to me as ‘many paths = one path = no path.’ grateful for the reminder.”

This got me so pumped I decided to do some investigating on the idea.

To at one moment think of many paths, one path, and no paths of any given situation. Could we train our minds to tackle such concepts we may be able to stem further from there. However this is all pretty much overwhelmingly exciting of a start.

So I will break this down by definition and let you come to your own conclusion and application of such an idea.

Tri-
a combining form meaning “three,” used in the formation of compound words: triacid; triatomic.

par·al·lax   [par-uh-laks]
noun
1.
the apparent displacement of an observed object due to a change in the position of the observer.
2.
Astronomy . the apparent angular displacement of a celestial body due to its being observed from the surface instead of from the center of the earth (diurnal parallax or geocentric parallax) or due to its being observed from the earth instead of from the sun (annual parallax or heliocentric parallax). Compare parallactic ellipse.
3.
the difference between the view of an object as seen through the picture-taking lens of a camera and the view as seen through a separate viewfinder.
4.
an apparent change in the position of cross hairs as viewed through a telescope, when the focusing is imperfect.

a·ware·ness [uh-wair-nis]
the state or condition of being aware; having knowledge; consciousness. (see vigilance, somatic, personal experience, etc.)

Please let me know what you think. Let me know if this strikes a cord 🙂

Mechanizing humanity.

Mechanizing  humanity.

I found this picture today, and was overcome with a flood of thoughts.

So I had extrapolated what I could to make some sense of the symbolism.
