Lions Roar : September 2012
SOURCEMATERIAL:©ISTOCKPHOTO.COM/NIKADA&COLOURBOX.COM A FEW WEEKS AGO A FRIEND of mine sent me one of those smarty- pants TED videos featuring some brai- niac who babbles over a slide show for eighteen minutes or less on how he or she is more accomplished in a field of expertise than I’ll ever be. Case in point: Louie Schwartzberg. Lou is an award-winning cinema- tographer who has spent the last thirty years shooting time-lapse photography in rain for- ests all over the world. The clips in his pre- sentation were breathtaking. You know the scene: dewdrops slide down flower petals in the mist, monarch butterflies softly land on mossy pads, and the sunlight glimmers through the clouds floating past the canopy overhead, completing the circle of life. After viewing this slo-mo mas- terpiece, did I contemplate for a moment the stunning splendor of science? Did I join Earth First! and begin to defend our precious and limited resources? Did I make a pledge to kick-start my own artis- tic acumen and bring it to the ignorant masses? No. Instead, I closed the YouTube window, saw a red circle with the number four on my inbox, clicked that icon, and moved on to the next thing. The impulse running through my wildly overstimulated brain was simply, “What’s next?” This Louie character had wallowed in a muddy Peruvian bog for three decades to bring me closer to God or creation or nature or enlightenment, and I had left his vision behind for a cat video. And not Cat Stevens, either. (That would have almost justified the jump...) A blind cat flailing at a hair dryer. What’s NEXT? How ’bout a straitjacket? Today’s Tweeting, Yelping, Flickring, Foursquaring, Trip- Advising mentality generates such a carnivorous hunger for stimulation and instant The Tweeting, Yelping, Flickring, Foursquaring, TripAdvising Mentality MICHAEL A. STUSSER on the wildly overstimulated brain.
