Review: See Man Jump...See God Fall: Tai Chi Vs. Technology
The Danimau opening to See Man Jump . . . See God Fall, in that author Joey Bond, and I quote Danimau here, that this guy has taken way too many drugs, already puts me off on Danimau and his reviewing acuity. Does he know Mr. Bond and his drug habits? Danimau is unnecessarily rude and obviously opinionated.
And so, having read this uniquely written book, I was taken into a whole new level of thinking about the strains put on both the individual and society at large in how Technology along with ensuing hybrid entanglements separates Man from his authenticity and emotional capacity to communicate from a level of unobstructed self-expression.
Danimau missed this central point the way a virgin-boy may well miss the mark, his first time out . . . that is to say, in.
I think that Mr. Bond delivers a finely-crafted intellectual approach in linking meditation and the Tai Chi methodology to independent, higher reasoning, while directing his Sophist questioning at the status of personal balance. Reaching 'higher ground' in terms of esthetic expression, through Tai Chi technical and philosophical excursions, is the key to dealing with the overwhelming truth, in that we are getting further and further apart from the emotional content of genuine human interrelatedness.
The message discovered in See Man Jump See God Fall also addresses our plight with the future of human-based communication development, as he presents us with a moving portrait that shows how the individual weaves his or her weighted way through the wiring of our codependency to technological paraphernalia. He warns of our imminent falling into the hole of substituting personal growth and creativity for cleverness of technological inventions, which in turn become our modus operandi in relating to others.
See Man Jump See God Fall is a throwback to the French philosophers at the turn of the last century, and if it does meander, it does so with intentional poetic flavorings that always brings us back to the central theme of how we are losing faith in each other by allowing technology to take over our natural, instinctive, human intelligence - indeed, taking over our very lives. How do you like your truth? I like mine from the heart!
