social trains, I drive social trains... because that's what social engineers do

I was just randomly thinking this afternoon about people and their attitudes, perspectives, and the methods in which many form their ideas, biases, and beliefs. Particularly in the area of social interaction and their opinions of others' character (word usage loose).

I hit on something in the logic process that I can't quite communicate yet but can see overwhelmingly clear in the mere sense of the abstract... Here it goes:

Assumptions hold the greatest potential for exploitation... they literally render the holder powerless if an observer or the target can identify and counter the basis and product of it. Further, the action of stating or implying biases requires one to first pause from progress, thereby eliminating their memetic defense while the flow of, particularly in a negative or insinuation context, is released.

If you think about it, the most obvious examples of this phenomenon are those who have their attention fixed on the experience as a participant. All individuals experience it as it is unescapable. However, the further one moves to an observer perspective, the less one is likely to open for release - due to the "bringing in data" nature of observation.

Anyway... that's all for now.
