Welcome to the future of the classroom. Your teacher will be yourself but in order for you to be capable of doing that, I have to show you how.
A new philosophy is born and its practical application develops the science to apply it! But these two have been integrated into one another, for they become one and any changes within either are organically reflected within the other. If one is to carry a notebook around with them universally across electronic devices, what relevant information could maximise the efficiency of their outcomes? (Clark, 1998, p. 559) If one is to integrate artificial intelligence into their conscious awareness, how is one to gear this to reach maximum potential to the subject of the technological enhancement? How can one refine character physically, mentally, and spiritually through the use of the Philosophy and Science of Dramaturgical Education? How can the enhancements of the individual then be reflected into all of society?
This education style is nothing new, its roots born from The Republic. (Plato, ~380BCE) However the prophets of our past could never actualise the vision long before them because the technology could not keep up with the thoughts. Each new revolution, literally taking generations or centuries to actualise into reality. Before you is the streets of gold that secures human salvation, the technology now becoming our reality. But (used intentionally) despite its practice now integrated into our world, the evolution of the human mind to understand how one could use it lags behind as mainstream media mesmerises the population into mediocrity. But now the individual has no competition because its intended function is different. But oh boy will we be competition for mainstream media. Because the individual naturally trumps artificial portrayals of meaning in Heart.
If one is to create and recreate their own psychology on camera as well as using that old footage to create and recreate their psychology, then what moral obligations do they have to both themselves and society to utilise that equipment to reach maximum efficiency? Through devotion to the technology, one can create any character which will exist and interact with the social world. We sit here at the new game of life constructed and practically applied through example. How much thought and dedication will you endure in order to capture the shots required to begin your career: the one in which you will create for yourself. Throughout this manual we will explore both the philosophical and scientific patterns and modes in which dramaturgical education could be utilised to maximise the potential outcomes of the student who utilises it to assist their learning potential.
Modern day forms of mass media are disconnected from any social reality. Its ideological processing requires simple "everyday" characters in order to be immediately understood by the member of the audience. Its core methodology is voyeuristic in nature. It disconnects the viewer not only from its content and how it portrays it, but also any form of our own social reality: only ever representing enacted performances about what it could be. For our movies play out in their own articulately constructed reality and not in the one in which actually exists.
For mainstream's intentions are purely capital. And that is why in this situation, the individuals hold the power. For the first time in human history my friends, one beautiful and talented individual can broadcast to the world population. The possibilities for human flourishing lies in the hands of the one holding the camera. And what they can make it accomplish will determine their future career within the topics in which they study. For they have a world to create and demonstrate on camera. For this is how one stamps their mark on society. And if one could stamp any mark they could think of, what would that stamp be? How would one go about constructing the love letter of their life and how would they sign it? (Nietzsche, ~1891) Imagine our collective human potential if we only signed like this...
