A Spectrum Of Expression

in Proof of Brain3 months ago

I'll begin by saying spectrum means range, an extent, a limit or a reach through which a phenomenon or variable can be possible. Of course this will be difficult to wrap around since the word "Spectrum" itself can be dynamic as it affects many aspects of life from politics, same-sex marriage, to other trendy sociopsychological issues that feels totally contradictory amongst some diverse human societies.

(NOTE: a tip for those who are biting the end of their fingers on the theme of spectrum). Today, I want to be exploring the topic spectrum of expressions. Firstly, it can be seen diversely from the rural/urban human societies and spread into a lot of sophisticated and technologicalised ones as well, expanding within a range or a particular limit, and this is what I will call the spectrum of expressions.

In the world today, we have a wide range of people who believe in the art and act of expression, and I'll expatiate on this. The act of expression is the process, methods and manner in which people chose to express themselves. The world is currently allowing a lot of trends, since human right of expressions has become superior from let's say 100 years back to what it currently is now.

Nowadays, people are beginning to see freedom as a spectrum that is limited and hence have chosen to explore it widely, without border or boundary seems they have the right. The act of expression knows and acknowledging the fact that no one is stopping you, you own your body, your life and mind and hence tweaking it to suit your fantasies are merely to your own good. We see people express themselves by tattooing, penis enlargement, liposuction, plastic surgery, body enhancement, tweaking the face, the look or appeal to maybe a particular race, a color or a tradition.

The Art of expression on the other hand is simply the process or act of expression in a more hardcore, unique, or creative way that would spark a reaction, criticism or question the sense of limit to the extent which people are willing to go to express themselves. Sometimes we see people look or appear in ways that we wouldn't deem to be normal or usual, and the next thing they'll say is that they have the right to express themselves.

However, they have taken expression to a whole new level, seeing it as an art, a style, taking it beyond comprehension. For example, in the name of looking different, I've seen people who chose to input horns Into their head, pierce their tongue, darken their eyes surgically to look like the devil. LGBT which stands for (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) is a spectrum of expression.

This is being mentally conditioned to choosing to express oneself differently in a sexual way away from how they're originally biologically wired. This of course is being accepted. Lately, a few people are being to add transracialism, a rare form of expression in which people can change their race surgically by adding a few facial features that is peculiar to the race they're changing into. An example is Oli London, a British K-POP artist who underwent dozens of surgeries to identify as Korean. However, I do believe that changing his face to look Korean wouldn't really make him Korean, this is because he cannot surgically also remove his accent.

Expression is a spectrum that is really vivid in many human societies at large, it is rampant and really contrasting just like you'll have fields like political spectrum and how it's become a theme through which people are psychologically conditioned. The world doesn't have a finite resolution, a conviction or dispositions towards expression. Most people would see it as an abuse, or a person trying to play God. Oli London for example have come under a lot of heavy criticism, to me, some of these criticism would be categorized into diverse manners.

For some, they will see his art of expression as madness. Others will say that it's his money and body and no one should decide for him what to do, while others would express fear for the future, others will see him as a negative influence or abuse to what LGBT stands for. For some people like me, I'll see it as exceeding or crossing a boundary. We can never have the same opinion or standpoint when it comes to the spectrum of expression.

This is because a lot of people do not want to judge and a few others wants to remain indifferent. However, we cannot argue that at one point in our lives that we haven't attempted to express ourselves in ways as deem satisfactory. The aim of this post was to explore the Psychology behind human expression.

The reason people tilt to expression is that we're diversely creative. Having a brilliant mind makes us tap into realms that might even be considered impossible for another person or persons to fathom. For example, choosing to speak in another accent or choosing to behave like a different race, or choosing to explore a sexual fantasy beyond imagination it's because people do not want to be conformed or limited to a particular narrative.

Intrestingly, I see results of the freedom to expression, we can notice a dynamism in this spectrum by seeing that people are taking expression to a whole new level that can be outrageous, an example is someone like Oli London. But is this wrong? This is not entirely up to me to say because as we keep evolving so does the hunger and thirst to be strangely expressed keep increasing, But we must strive hard to maintain a balance and a limit.

Man, this was a masterpiece. I actually was a bit overwhelmed with them concise and hard hitting points here.

The pictures only took this post to levels of greatness that are unimaginable.

The more a person expresses themselves in a conscious and thoughtful way, the more beautiful the human becomes and understanding the human becomes second to first the appreciation of the art or rather the uniqueness of life and humanity itself in real time.

Truly, its the complexity of foods and art that draws us to them, humans and are no different.

This post in a way its like speaking up for the wild colored funky chicken who can be pecked to death by the flock just for having genetics expressed differently. Thank you.

PS you saw dpend is back posting! Im sure his poetry and writings will intrigue you if you are not familiar with him.

Thank you, I was sure it'll leave that effect, you're actually right about people choosing to express themselves rightly. But then sometimes people express themselves not rightly, but the way it actually appeals to them. Expression can come from innate desires to be totally different and sometimes it becomes an obsession and hence people don't get to see that thin line. But we must not fail to acknowledge the fact that expression is totally beautiful when we tap into the purest of our values to do it rightly.

Of course @d-pend is more than a friend, we've known each other from way back 2018 and i'm glad to see him posting again, i'll actually drop by to check his posts soon, its been a while.

Thanks a whole lot again

Hahahah... But he can learn, you know, and his accent will be gone 😤

But well done with the expression analysis.

You should know life would have been boring if we didn't Wake up to hear or see people crossing the boundaries set by the society

Some of us are dying to have such amount of courage to express our feelings, and how we wish to change the body we came

I remember one of favorite artist singing

"You know some days you feel so good in your own skin
But it's okay if you wanna change the body that you came in
'Cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen
We're all just playing a game in a way, tryna win at life
"

It's a part of the games we are playing to win at life

He can learn more accent, but it wouldn't change the original British one because he more or less grew up in England.

Yeah, in diverse spectrum of life, so many things are happening, we have people playing God, or playing the role of alpha and omega, so many things are happening that we aren't even cognisant of. Infact in the past I had no idea that a person could be transracial. A different standard is set on a daily basis and people are tapping into the extremes of how they can visibly express themselves.

But well done with the expression analysis.

Thank you, it took days to bring the idea into light.

If you say so oooo

I am sorry but this is the world we live in. 😴

You did a great job with it

Great angle on the word of the week mate. It was really different and I enjoyed it. The spectrum of expression is seemingly undefined and infinite. Just when you think people can push the boundaries no further, they find new ways to break through them!


Posted via proofofbrain.io

You're exactly correct, the truth is the spectrum of expression is indefinite because people will always find new ways to actually express themselves at the expense of seeing a boundary or a thin line. Its one aspect of the society that worths taking a look at.

The first part of the movie three hundred where leonardo's and the elders climbed to meet with the oracle I saw an art of expression that triggered something that humans could show expression beyond limit you are right


Posted via proofofbrain.io

I have watched 300, but it seemed I have forgotten this part of the movie since its been too long. However, thanks for mentioning, I might go back myself to check it.

The world strive in balance. Despite our self determinism. We must know when not to cross the boundary.

Spectrum is quite broad.

If we continue seeking expression in an outrageous way, I'm afraid that we will someday destroy our selves.

Lovely, I also agree too. I believe we should find a limit, a thin line that we cannot cross.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Such a limit is pertinent for human preservation


Posted via proofofbrain.io

If it's harmful to oneself or others it crosses out of the realm of expression, and into something wrong. But if it just looks weird, then there shouldn't be any judgement. It's a person's right to express themselves :)

But then, when we can't find a limit or a thin line to the expression of freedom. We might become lawless and destroy ourselves in the process.

There definitely has to be a limit. It's no longer freedom for all if it hurts others.
