The “Talk Science” section now officially has been open for your eyes and minds to read about how perspectives of science, business, and the touch of human senses can help us to create a better reality to live.
With this article, I invite you to explore how a researcher’s mind paves the path with ideas that have emerged out of collected information from different scientific articles, observations of people’s behavior in the field, and the deep conjunction with human senses. The focus here is the language of perspectives and our future of communication. I will start from where we are today – our digital reality.
Have a good read.
For how long are we going to think outside-inside way in a business? We still observe the objects first and then discuss the strategies on how can we play around with them to generate profit. Again, we tend to look outside for outcomes. It is like we discuss business and who has a better idea at the time – wins. The same techniques we apply in our digital environments. Are we going to evolve as a human race or are we “Playing Theatre” after the theatre ends?
In this world, all digitalization shift presents us with a more efficient way to do our work as well as make us realize that what was “normal” will never be here again. For this reason, some of the jobs, which were created just for maintenance roles will no longer be essential for the marketplace. The maintenance job roles will be moved inwards – digitally – and take the facilitation roles within the company as well as independently.
Most of the companies have already managed to adapt during the pandemic by transforming themselves into a digital way of serving customers, navigating employees, or managing the companies. Saas, PaaS, and IaaS business models are filling this miss-communication gap between physical and virtual social interaction in the business field. However, the digital environment provides us just a set of tools for communication. We still need to communicate by ourselves. In other words, we need to start to communicate telepathically by following each other’s train of thought, and this time we are doing it online.
THE POWER OF THE MINORITY IS BEING REDIRECTED TO THE MAJORITY
From what we can observe online, we still do not have the right level of consciousness to collaborate together. In different forums or social media, we tend to “fight for our own opinion” instead of looking for a way how we can elaborate the discussion. Our egoistic perception of self vs. others still is dominant to us. We believe that stronger arguments can win our place of power within a group of people. We still believe that “moral economy” techniques for communication can empower other people’s emotions and influence them to act as we wish them to act accordingly.
Primitively speaking, that’s right. We will win our place in the hierarchy of society, where the strongest mind person wins. However, each person with technology is gaining “the right of personal perspective” ownership. This we can notice not only in the digital field but also in our use of language. Due to the inclusiveness, diversity, equality, and other similar concepts are being adopted in our daily vocabularies. This starts the switching process of our mindset towards collaboration. So, the power of the minority is being redirected to the majority. However, to hold the power in these circumstances we need to care genuinely about others.
THE LANGUAGE OF PERSPECTIVES
You may ask, how we could genuinely care for others. You may say that it is so complex to understand each other and be good for everyone. We can’t satisfy everyone! However we do not need to satisfy everyone or give what people ask. Sometimes people have no clue what they truly want even though they assure us that they do. What we need to do is just appreciate each person’s perspective. In other words – start speaking in the language of perspectives!
Most creative industry professionals have been speaking in this language for generations. And now more than ever, we need to learn this language in order to understand people from different business sectors. People use concepts such as “entrepreneurial mindset” or “ecofriendly mindset”. What do they really mean? I believe, here lesson one starts with learning the language of perspective, which could be bio-linguistic in our mindset. In this critical era where issues and problems are hybrid, complex, and non-manageable with one process system – we are forced to think critically, but first, we need to learn the language of perspectives in order to think differently.
With digitalization and cross-cultural communication – the need for this language understanding becomes essential in order to keep the business alive further. “The digital” – is a new social interaction environment. “Cross-cultural communication” – gives us a diversity of perspective contexts for communication. By joining these two together in old fashion way (by adapting a “problem-solving” mindset) we need knowledge, skills, expertise, specific tools and data statistics, and so on. Today, all we need is just awareness! When we are speaking in the language of perspective we start intuitively feeling the room even though the room is on the digital platform.
A HUMAN-CENTRIC VIEWPOINT ON THE NEW LANGUAGE NEED
Ok. What do I mean by “the language of perspectives”? This language is the language of meanings and it is unique and individual for each person separately. It might look difficult to learn each person’s language of perspectives, but we learn this language not by learning more about others, but by learning more about ourselves first. Perception appears because of our consciousness connection by adaptation to the same energetic vibration of both/or more people’s personal state of thoughts (words/action meanings, negative/positive focus, holistic/narrow views, and so on). To understand more of the scientific side of this perspective, I invite you to read more about “Cultural Models” by N. Quinn and C. Strauss.
When we communicate with other people in this language, we do not talk about objects and discuss their processes in order to transmit what we want to say. Instead, we exchange the visualization of our ideas and use our knowledge about objects/tools to connect to other people’s perspectives. We eliminate the factual details of the conversation, smoothen the knowledge power relation and create the conjunction on the mind level with another person. Then the communication becomes synchronized by our energetic vibration, which gives us a tone to create the bond and trust in people as well as provide the respect for each person’s superiority to make their own choice. This applies to every level of human interaction. The exclusion applies to the AI machinery as they are driven mainly by mind calculations and logical algorithms of situations.
What I would like to stress here is that human communication in the digital environment has used more than ever visualization power to energetically elaborate the synchronized vibration, which AI and other machinery communication has no ability to do so (as they rely only on knowledge database and calculations). In this way, humans will have leverage against machines and be able to adapt easier to the digitalization transformation.
OBSTACLES TO SPEAKING THE LANGUAGE OF PERSPECTIVES
The biggest issue for this language of perspectives is collective limiting beliefs, which we keep teaching each other from generation to generation due to our focus on the logical calculations done in our minds. In other words, people, who follow the general thinking path – called by names normal or common sense – this is where those collective beliefs are rooted and cause conflicts among our minds.
So we need to be very careful when we speak in the language of perspectives because not everyone is capable to keep the tone in the same vibration for the whole conversation. At some point, it appears that the traumatic emotions trigger the mind to control emotional wobbling within our communication. In a way, we gave ourselves to our mind control and become dual from our humanistic side, the soul.
OUR DIGITAL COMMUNICATION REALITY OF TODAY
Skills of digital facilitation of our conversations become each of our realities. We are “reading people’s minds” by using various communication tools or collective digital spaces. When we connect our expressions of thoughts in visual, written, sound and movement combined form together – our cognitive sensors may implement information much easier to our mind and “digest” the thoughts, which have synchronicity with the rest of the people, sitting on another end of the computer screen. In this way, our ability to speak in the language of perspectives gives us a feeling of “sailing the boat with all people on board”.
All today’s digital tools and technical features of communication allow us to facilitate conversations and keep the mutual train of thoughts running smoothly. The core intermediator here is a human being with the ability to feel what he/she see, hear, touch, or perceive and then transmit it through the language of perspectives to another person.
In my view, this is what telepathic communication looks like in the digital era.
