My science journalist friends abandoned me, so I’ll be calling on you to help get the word out about my new book, EXPRESSLY HUMAN, on the importance of emotional expressions
Congrats and look forward to reading your book. Hopefully, one day soon the tables will turn. They always do.
Looks an interesting book!
Can we still call them journalists?
Bought the book. 1/3 of the way in.
Hi Lara, Been meaning to get to this comment. They're indeed "not quite right," for a number of reasons. They don't allow us the full 4D space of emotional expressions. And even if they did, they don't allow us the ability to titrate them to our desired quantitative level. And even if they did, we do this (emotional expressions) in real life subconsciously, not consciously picking from a menu of emotional expressions.
Mark - For the medical community it was threats of license review and or loss that helped the system keep physicians from challenging the official government approved narrative on covid, the vaccine and masks. What was it within the scientific Journal community that did this, that convinced so many to turn on you so quickly?
A subject that has always interested me; will purchase when it arrives.
Texting and Imojies are a great example of no natural God given emotions or actual facial expression. They don't want real social interaction and it's worked. I rarely hear my adult children's voice. All by design!
Intriguing title! What do you think of the ubiquitous emojis of facial expressions? I've stopped using them with a growing, vague sense that something isn't quite right with them. It feels as if our natural emotional expression is being robotically trained with a limited menu of simplistic symbols, which distance us from our bodies where real emotions are felt. Maybe I'm overthinking it, but I just can't shake this unease about emojis. They remind me of transhumanism. Any thoughts?
hi Mark, I haven't heard of you before but have just bought your book. Have lost my librarian job due to crazy mandates in Australia. Look forward to reading your book and good luck with your work and legal case
I have already preordered the book. I find this stuff fascinating to say the least.
Dr. Changizi I am extremely excited about your book! CAN'T WAIT!
Is it available in the UK? Or when will it be?
Can't wait to get it.
On thing I'm shocked from an anthropological perspective is how blindly Japanese people use masks. Here in London almost everyone got rid of them, but anytime anywhere you see a Japanese person 90% of chances they'll wear a mask. I guess it applies to Korean and Chinese as well.
Do you have a tweet or section in the book that addresses this question?
Thanks for your very useful work.
I am aware of how much personal information I am giving away as I walk around un-nose-coned in a sea of the nose-coned.
Which also implies how hidden the characters and emotions are of the masked.
I suspect that they will feel too exposed and naked to forego them now that they have normalised not showing emotions.
Maybe that's the last privacy they have; having given up their bodily freedom with injections of they don't know what, and submitted to track and trace.
