In this rampant atheism that owns me. Some voices and minds are needed to seek consolation, light. For me, Seth Godin, Neil Gaiman and Jason Silva.
Three oracles that have me talking about what they have said for some time now are Neil Gaiman, Seth Godin and Jason Silva.
Neil Gaiman, storyteller. Fantastic. Narrator of the fantastic. From their books, even their interviews are loaded with everything that can break reality. How to see the everyday with magic.
Seth Godin will say too, author, inspirational. Marketero empernido del marketing of emotions. Inexhaustible advisor. Half of what it says is a checklist for the survival of communication in the 21st century.
There TEDtalks That leave the head spinning. To which one often returns to hear with attention.
TEDtalks are the contemporary informational pill format. Some are viral y false. Others touch deep fibers. There are three authors who manage to touch these fibers with premises that seem obvious, but which we ignore with ease.
1. Jon Ronson. Writer, English, journalist, interested in Chronicles of limit and absurd places; Talks about how we judge others by their most perverse edges.
2. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. writer, Nigerian, who remembers how we all have a story more complex than that abstracted and diluted abstraction that we believe are stereotypes.
3. Taiye Selasi. writer, Afropolita, daughter of a Nigerian father and Ghanaian mother, born in London, raised in Boston, who lives between New York and Delhi. It comes to question where our identity comes from.
Multiple layers. Nothing is as simple as it seems.
