There are two ways to look at this.
- If i were a "consumer", i would see this as a video to watch, consuming the information it provides me. This is a majority of humanity. In this
context, the accuracy of the information in the video is paramount, as it is being "uploaded" as a consumable.
- if I were a "thinker", i would see this as a catalyst for thought and additional philosophical endeavors. This is a very narrow segment of
humanity. In this context, the accuracy of the information is barely noticable as a concern. The person watching the video is thinking while
watching, and is taking mental notes of key phrases and concepts to investigate further. The video is not consumed so much as indexed for
Knowing that humanity treats information in these two ways (and a couple others) on most occasions, perhaps the viewpoint should be more to correct
any misinformation for those who require the corrections? And then those of us who are not consumers of information can find inspiration for further
lines of thought by reading your statements?
