I met R last week. Meeting him felt meaningful because I met him through M and because it felt synchronistic even before I arrived at the pub. M said, ‘if you like Steve Jobs, you’ll really like this guy’. Just following my excitement (M, Steve Jobs, beers… all good).
Turns out R’s job is creating virtual reality, immersive environments… 3D virtual, interactive environments you can walk through. My God! What could be more interesting?! Right away I’m asking a million questions, asking if I can see one of these environments, asking if he needs an apprentice. Then he tells me they create these immersive environments using software called Sandde!
Sandy!?!?! Come on!? Now I know this is an important meeting! How could it not be? R creates 3D mind projections using a tool called Sandy. How could anything be closer to me and what I’m about than that?!
I’m currently unemployed, so my first thought was that this could translate into a job opportunity. R tells me my theatre technician and art installation skills could definitely get me a job in his company. I’m ecstatic! Well, that was easy! No, not really. I messaged R a couple days later and got no response. Hmm.
So, what does it all mean? Where does it leave me? It leaves me with three important realizations.
1.) I do not want to rely on technology to create reality, I want to do it directly.
2.) I do not want to rely on others for opportunity, I want to create it myself.
3.) R creates virtual reality using a tool called Sandde. I can use my own internal Sandy the same way! (that’s the mechanism I’ve been reaching for?)
