So I was watching this video by Matthew Santoro about the theory of the six degrees of seperation....




It is a neat concept and one I'm willing to accept may be accurate. That is everyone reading this right now can be linked to me through six people, one that I know, and then someone they know, and so forth, up to a sixth person.

And I really like how he added at the end, if you just interact with one person, then you affect everyone, because that person is linked to everyone else.

That is, whatever you think, and thus say and do, whether it be with friends, enemies, neighbors, workmates, on social media, on the internet, in forums like this, eventually has an impact on everyone.

How we behave, you and me, it impacts those we interact with and come across us by chance, and eventually, it impacts everyone else, whether we know it or not.

Are you being mean? That will eventually vibrate throughout society.

Are you being nice? That too will eventually vibrate throughout society.

And what you think and believe has a huge impact on other people, and how you behave as well.

Well, I was just thinking about that and wanted to put it down.

Its true. Energy transfer through displaying emotions. Like when the boss yells at the husband, who comes home and yells at the wife, who yells at the kids, who kick the dog, who chases the cat, who eats the mouse, that eats the cheese… and the cheese stands alone.
Induction of magnetic fields works on the same principle.

Amazing.

Did I ever tell you that I knew an old woman who swallowed a fly?

Edit- Apologies that I didn't respond to the O.P, but I am sure you are correct. Emotions count, but they never existed in texts, until Emoticons.

Interesting. I knew a woman who killed a cat with a purse full of rocks. True story....emotions..?

Emoticons are useless as the smiley clerk at the burger counter saying, "Have a nice day". Hows that for "negative reinforcement"?

Did it "rub off"? Were you "incensed"? Did you get "pissed"?

My grandad, who is long dead, used to have stationary, you know paper and stuff. On each page on the top he had the phrase: Smile, you never know when you'll make another one smile.

And that's true. A simple smile to a passing stranger can make that person smile back, and someone else seeing that smile may smile too.

A smile is worth more than a scowl. And is better. Even if you don't feel like it.

Anger, Love, envy? Who knows, but mainly who cares? She murdered a cat with a purse full of rocks.

Not particularly, was I meant to?

Sometimes I wonder if you are a psycho, or just one intelligent S.O.B.

I only get pissed at festivals.

On a more holistic level, we are co-creators and we coexist, and so we each create our own reality and also co-create the world we live in.

Yes the world is not a peaceful place but nothing affects you when you don't allow it to.

Peace

There's an old saying that goes. . .

"Smile. Your friends will smile with you and your enemies will wonder what you're up to."

Have not watched the video in the OP yet but it sounds very similar to a few lines from the film "Lady in the Water" :


"Man thinks they are each alone in this world. It is not true. You are all connected. One act can one day affect all." ~ Story

en.wikiquote.org...

"You have a purpose. All beings have a purpose."

"There is a veil that covers the eyes of man creating an illusion to the things we cannot see. There is so much more to this world but without removing the veil one may not ever see it."

"...if we think that it is too difficult to help heal the world, that it is just too big then to me this is giving up, we must do whatever it takes to help humanity, life, and the planet heal. It is our duty as children of the creator of this earth and the universe. To feel that you have the ability to change this world is the greatest tool you have."

"But man has forgotten how to listen". The awakening of man will only happen when man begins to listen to his creator. But man has forgotten how to listen..."

Peace


It affects you, whether you allow it to mold you or not is up to you.

If you use your hands every day in hard labor they will eventually become hard and calloused. No way, just be ignoring you are working, that it won't affect you.

Sorry, I was trying to convey meaning through words and phrases we use as part of my example for how emotions transfer.

"Did it rub off"? was a good one. LIke, you get scolded by someone about something you did or said and they follow up with, "Is any of this rubbing off on you?".

Smiles to random passing strangers are nice but…


Cobaltic: I am both a psycho and a smart sob, thanks.

Nice videoclip. And shows how a person from a small town is, and a person from a large city. I've lived in both. One, Gunnison, with a population of about 4,000, everyone waves to everyone else. It's just natural. You drive down to Denver, you wave to a stranger on the street, they stare at you like you're loony.

Look, we don't know each other and are exchanging more conversation than most strangers passing on the street, does that make us looney? Or perhaps it is big city life that makes being a human not really normal.

I jest my friend, but many a true word has been said in jest.

I know you are both, you couldn't be anything less.

This must be some kind of fundamental truth...

Another confirmation: Clarence Oddbody's line from "It's a Wonderful Life"...

Thank you for the videoclips. And the scripture at the end of the last one.

It reminds me of what Jesus said while he was on earth:

"“I came to start a fire on the earth, and what more is there for me to wish if it has already been lit?." - Luke 12:49.

Through all of the badness, he showed goodness and kindness. An he knew that his actions would affect all future generations of humans, and past. The best example of how the actions of one person affect everyone else.

Give me that small town friendly any day. I live in Urban sprawl Megalopolis, mostly people honk and cut each other off in traffic, avoid eye contact on the sidewalk and wait impatiently in line behind others.

Im sure they are normal and all, friendly to those they know and all, maybe.

Or we've lost it. The story of the good Samaritan isn't just an old tale.

It goes much deeper but yes we are interconnected.

It mentioned that this theory has been used in a few films so I searched and found one:
