The spyfu version of the self-aware self is one of the greatest ideas on the internet for me. I try to keep the phrase “self-aware” straight, so I don’t have to think about it on my own.
That, and the fact that the Spyfu version is much better at hiding things than the ordinary version.
I don’t know if that’s a good thing. Or a bad thing. The thing is all of us are on autopilot, and not only do we have no control over our own lives, but we can’t even see our own thoughts and actions. We might be smart, but we’re really just a bunch of automatons that follow the same routine over and over again.
As we all know, we are all self-aware. We all do things because they make us feel good or because it helps us to accomplish a goal. Self-awareness is the process of recognizing our own thoughts and behaviors and putting them into context.
The problem is that self-awareness means we can no longer control our thoughts and behaviors. Everything we do, everything we feel, everything we think of, is just a function of thought and emotion. A person can be self-aware, but it takes a lot of conscious effort. When we don’t make that effort we don’t realize what we are doing. It’s the equivalent of a drunk person getting in the car and driving drunk.
What I love about spyfu is that it doesn’t really require that much effort from the user. Instead, the user is just a passive observer. It’s just that he or she is aware of their own thoughts and behaviors, and they are able to put those into context. That can be useful for a lot of different things, from getting a job done to learning about our family members.
And its even more useful when we are in a situation where the user has a lot to do. Imagine you are a new job applicant in a company that is very busy. You have to wait a long time to hear back from a recruiter from the company, and you have a lot of other things going on and you probably don’t have a lot of time for yourself. In this situation, a spyfu alternative is just as useful.
In a typical situation, we would probably want to use a spyfu alternative when such a person was busy and we wanted to learn more about the person so we could find out if they were up to the job. But in our situation, we don’t have a chance to look for an alternative until we hire the person. That’s a situation where we don’t have an alternative, so we can’t use spyfu as an alternative.
In the future we’ll also be using spyfu to work in a way that works. We’ll be using spyfu to help us find out if a person is working. I know I have a spyfied computer spyfied for my use, but I’ll be using spyfu as a means to teach others about the world.
