The Reference Point

You know whats wrong with most of these advertisements and women in movies etc? In short, all the models that we see? Why their figures fail to impress? Why we (at least I) dont have the feeling that they are very different from each other.
Why seeing someone in real life with a great bod is much more impressive.
Why a slinky tight dress in a magazine usually fails to impress.

It is not just a matter of overdose, dulling of senses etc.

There is no reference point.

To our minds, there are these great bods, and great abs, and bountiful hair, and so on. But its wonderful compared to what?

Thats when the photographers art comes into play, to give perspective to the viewer. To get the correct reference point.

Imagine the same man/woman walking down a street...with normal people. Thats when the whole person / the advertised commodity comes into perspective. Thats when they are shortlisted for assignements, for showcasing the product.

Its all about perspective, about comparison. Nothing is understood in its totality unless it it with respect to something else.

Everything in the end is comparison to some known thing. A meter, kilometer, pound, KG, anything. THe human mind can only grasp things while keeping in perspective some other known thing (redder than that apple, bigger than your thumb, etc). Thus it is vital to get the correct comparison scale.
(This is true for just about anything)

Drawing from there. If everything is compared, then if we keep moving back into comparisons, then there should be an ultimate point where we can find out what the final benchmark of comparison is.
That one final thing, which we keep as the 'gold standard' and finally figure out everything else in the world wrt it.

Wonder what THAT is.
The world and I

Crib Time!

Okay, its time...to CRIB!

Stupid Stupid Lotus. Im SICK of mail quota warnings after every single mail, in double now (2mail quota warnings per mail, recieved, as well as sent). even after ive cleared my inbox of one months mail....I mean WHY do I havve to shut down and restart to get it to act normal! (I have only 15days' mail now!)

IDIOTIC comp. Bloody slow! Each window is like royalty...makes me wait rooted to the spot while it cascades down regally, and SLOWLY unveiling itself.

BLOODY B@$t@rds of online data source. THis site we subscribe to for sales data is happily misbehaving since morning. Im sick of using its stupid lengthy format to pin point the parameters so it extracts data...and (poor lil patient me) even after 5 attempts, it still shows up a senseless "error in fields" message at the penultimate step...thus effectively deleting the queiry. 'back' and 'refresh' dont work here!! he. he.

Given up on myself, sitting with feet on chair in office. Not acknowledging any superiors anywhere...on seat, off seat, in corridoors. Ready to politely bite off the head of anyone daring to just daring to ...to...do...anything.

Darn sleepy and to boot feeling nauseous at the thought of coffee. Tea doesnt help. And theres nothing else.
