Again? Tell me why that is real and this is not?

Now that I have made some attempt at publicity for the book I get requests by publicists. Well most of the ones I get are just trying to make their way like everyone else with small little radio shows, or want free books, so claim something they have no intention of fulfilling.

One did actually follow through with a little radio show in Chapel Hill, NC. It was nicely done with the interview conducted on the phone. Our only other communication had been by email. 

He came out and boldly said "Virtual is NOT REAL!" That was his "no questions asked" point of view. It wasn't up for discussion.  Yet we had only typed in text.. and we had only communicated by phone, but HIS show was REAL. 

That always amazes me. Why a communication by a phone line is real and VOIP communication over a computer is not real? Does that mean if we talk on a black cell phone it is more real than if we talk on a red cell phone? Why does the device trigger reality?

When I asked him how many were on his internet radio show listening.. He reluctantly told me 2, but then he added there could be lots more out on the radio waves... umm hmmm.  This was his dream, to him, that was real! 

We dismiss anything that isn't within our frame of reference. 

This picture was a Second Life broadcast with a live group of avatar audience that seemed to be close to 30. So let's say a 100 more watch over a year on YouTube. By his estimation the virtual communication was NOT real? His little radio show was. Yet I got at least two book sales from the virtual show.

Reality is where ever you Focus.

So what is real.. is only what you believe, but that only works for you. So to quote another great story teller...

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

Yep Zen. Imagination is greater than intellect according to Einstein. But I wonder? Are the things we don't seem to master always consider greater? For someone that can easily dance, sing, perform they look at those that do math, mechanics and think that is a great thing. For those that only do, they look at those that can create with wonder. Is it our perspective that creates "bigger & better" in our mind?

I wish to show some appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of such a problem. As a result of researching through the search engines and obtaining techniques which were not powerful, I figured my entire life was done. Living devoid of the strategies to the issues you have solved through the website is a serious case, as well as the kind that might have in a wrong way affected my career if I had not noticed your web blog. Your expertise and kindness in handling the whole thing was invaluable. I don't know what I would've done if I had not discovered such a step like this. I am able to now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this professional and sensible guide. I will not hesitate to suggest your blog post to any person who will need guide about this area.
