Son Aaron is a 2nd semester university sophomore and after beginning his studies the idea of becoming an engineer is unfolding into something different. He is good at math and science and his initial idea of a major was petroleum engineering, which I suggested is an old technology and that he might consider exploring re-newable-energy engineering. After seeing The Social Network movie and the analysis of Facebook’s narcissistic CEO Zurkerberg hiring expert computer systems engineers to tap-into and create havoc in other computers systems, I begin half-jokingly suggesting he becomes a professional hacker. With his Chinese and English languages, he ought it have two very interesting suitors bidding for his dangerous knowledge.
Aaron came home from university recently and asked to interview me on my experience choosing a profession for his career development class. To say the least, I was excited and pushed through his resistance and audio-taped our conversation. A day after, as if by the design of the unfolding self-organizing theory of life (Aziz 2007) my effort to guide Aaron into exploring his options, a friend sent the documentary Dangerous Knowledge that addresses the monumental task before him – understanding the matrices of life we are living in.
In my Blog I have slowly been letting unfold the self-organizing theory of life that surrounds me and pose this question, Is there a path through The Trap (Fuck You Buddy) we have created for ourselves. I have been a student of CG Jung’s idea of synchronicity since beginning my teaching career and was amazed when the clips listed below appeared on my internet search screen. I watched these and shared them with Aaron and now with you. In past postings some have already been explored and in future postings they will continue to be explored. I post them here for you to view and explore what I am experiencing as an interesting and exciting theory of unfolding reality.
