Show Notes: The Big Chair

We are going back to 1983 and to the start of a revolution and to the genesis of what could have stopped Severed Conscience.

The 1980s had very iconic culture that supported the views of achievement, hard work, success and had a good understanding subtle irony.  Quintin Tarantino claims it’s the most boring era in film, but not if you understand that sometimes less is more.

Chaos Theory and Fractals Not Common Knowledge Yet

But Personal Computers Were About DISRUPTION

The goal was to build something much different than IBM, Big Corp and even Apple.  This disruption was to THINK for YOURSELF, build to make a difference.  The idea was to NOT accept what you were told was the standard, the norm, but to go and investigate for yourself.

In a way I sensed Severed Conscience during COVID.  Last night at party I described this to a friend of a friend who has a child who is now as focused.

“Should they give up their obsession they may not be able to go back”, is what I said.  We then had a discussion about Severed Conscience, in her field she has sensed the same as Kelly, O and I have.

This episode was inspired by my daughter barging into my office and demanding that I change my music to something from the 80s, and specifically Head Over Heals from Songs From The Big Chair by Tears For Fears.  She came to know of them on her own, and little did I know how much she loved that album.  That’s tonight’s journey started, and that’s how we will end it.
