Thinking in rules versus (feeling as means of) knowing
need to know the rules in order to break them". Game theory. Rules of
theater. If the public is seated that way,
the curtin is there, there is darkness in the begining and then the lights
precisely on that section of the space called stage, automatic response
will emerge in the minds of the audience: the expectation,
the supposition is that what the public sees is heater. In
marketing, knowledge about how the brain reacts to
stimuli, based on mechanisms of pleasure and fear is used as a means to seduce consumers into buying one thing or another, and another one soon after.

Once we know that knowing the rules is the way to win the game, if we consider asking
the question what
is it that we want to win?
- would we get a glimpse of awareness of the
fact that the game is merely an interface between
ourselves and reality, not reality itself? Could we walk through
that interface as if it would not be there, touch reality directly with
our senses and intentions? Could we see the order between
the knowledge that
we can access directly and what mass media is
telling us? Imagine, no news today! Just look around. Don't read the
date on the box with eggs, just break one open and smell it. Imagine
we'd allow our intelligence to work, instead of following labels and
all kind of important 'information'. Some of the characteristics of
knowledge are dispersion
and fluidity; it is like air or like water. It is everywhere and
can contain it, while anyone can access it.
