Statements Proto-Virtual Reality and Social Media
Embodied in statements like “let’s take a break”, “perspective psychology”, and “a government of citizens” is a complexity which often escapes popular Proto-Virtual Reality and Social Media. Yet aspirator-Virtual Reality and Social Media develops with the convergence of social media and technology conglomerates which harvest the new-found knowledge of brain functions, genetic dispositions, and artistic preferences amongst other things equally related, there is also a new-found tendency to elaborate social media capacities to encompass something which is more cognitive, which has direction, or even a form of psychological function.
What I would like to do is open the door for psychological media, not as ardent film-making, or even cultivating media databases, or working on media-processing applications, but instead, the specifically magical application of highly specific usages of context for the sake of perspectival advantages. Furthermore, I will not leave it to your imagination to determine what I mean by magical media, perspective psychology, citizen-as-government, or taking a break. More meaningful re-iteratively, upon their own context of perspective psychology, citizen-as-government, taking a break, or magical media.
First, consider open-endedness. To some extent, it has been over-used. The media, by-and-large (I’m thinking of commercials during the Super Bowl) relies on a closed network of assumptions about what the consumer sees, hears, and interprets. This closed set of assumptions is a function of the open-endedness for the consumer. Clearly, there are other options, but it is hard to reach for them. In the case of the expression ‘taking a break,’ the Super Bowl offers one option, while determining a large fixed set of dimensions offers another alternative.
Now let’s look at another example. “A government of citizens” can be translated several ways, such as “population”, “centralization”, and “government-as-citizen” and “citizen-as-government”. However, what does this say about media? This is not always obvious. But recently, social media has stepped in to provide a metaphor for social responsibility and public or citizen-consciousness. Clearly then, in this case there are three agents:  citizen,  technology, and  government.
The last term I mentioned initially was perspective psychology. Clearly, the aperture here is through a convergence between variety-as-spice and the scientific advances which promote media and systems functionality. There is also the implication that disciplines such as science will be open to a lot of user-generated content, along the lines of social media. There is an opportunity for the use of mass psychology combined with computerized interpretation to yield functional results.
Or, ignoring science for the moment, there is a direct potential between ‘media-function’ and concepts of psychology. Perhaps branding is not what I mean. Perhaps there is a different concept than branding which would serve a function for social media. For example, consider relativized brands. These systems which the users define connote in their best form, actual authorities on media. Therefore, a number of conclusions follow:  Media will have localities of psychology, which are effectively user-defined.
