LOGITECH’S GoogleTV BOX: (In answer to the Boxee prediction is Logitech’s GoogleTV box
VARIOUS STREAMING BOXES: Various Streaming Boxes here or on the way soon
Now, as Logitech’s selling script at their GoogleTV site says, “If you can think it, you can watch it! Chances are, you have one of the 60 million HDTVs in the US that are ready. To be smarter. To integrate the full Web and your HD cable or satellite content. To do things no TV has ever done before.”
I submit to the reader that there are literal galaxies of video ALREADY PRESENT in the social fabric of the internet, on shelves, in boxes and, most importantly, in the human imagination. To peer into video IS humanity’s method of peering into that which is not seen or spoken in the workaday world.
Video channels could become as numerous as the grains of sand on the shore. And all of these are windows INTO what Carl Jung calls The Unconscious realm. How is this so? A single music video can carry one far away from the chair one sits in, a movie can transform a life and a single ad can empty the wallets of tens of millions.
STARGATES: Accessing the unconscious realm IS the BIG opportunity arriving with The Golden Age of Video. Why is this an opportunity? We are, each one of us, on a journey of discovery every day, every moment. Video is THE biggest and hottest medium at this time in history and it could be argued that video connects the psyche to that vast and un-ending universe of the unconscious realm, populated by countless entities, pathways and vortexes. Videos act like talismans, or symbols, that represent, as Jung puts it, “stargates that point beyond themselves…(and)…mobilize our psychic energy”.
GoogleTV is an aggregator of Stargates leading directly to the limitless Unconscious Realm.
