Waking up people

2 years, 7 months ago

I’ve got an idea. I read this book where the main person receieves a personal letter in an envelope. On the envelope it is only the main persons hand written name, and in the envelope is a little note wich asks the question “Who are you?” Then another envelope comes, with a note inside that asks the question “Do you exist?” This forces the protagonist to think about these issues.

Is this possible to do in a little larger scale? Ex. One picks out at random different people in the phone book. Send them an envelope with a note in it, which asks a specific question. Maybe send another letter the next week, and the next week (for a specific number of weeks). Since the letters are handwritten, and keep coming, it would seem for the “victim” that the messages are personal, and indeed they are. This would hopefully force them to think about the message and the question, instead of just breezing through as is the case when one are exposed to such messages at the internet or in popular culture.

Could this be used to ‘wake up’ people? What questions would you ask random persons?

If enough people start doing this, then maybe it could make a difference? I’ll start sometime soon. Any ideas for questions?

It’s a cool idea but I think most people would just disregard it as some advertising

@caspar, Thats why it would be handwritten, with the persons name, like, To Tom Thompson, Are you truly alive? I don’t think you are..

Question, would this be illegal? Some people would think it harassing and maybe even scary, and thus you could be charged for threats or intent or whatever?

@hhhkelly, Im down! Ill msg you soon

I would probably be wondering if it was some kind of advertising campaign. Still think its an awesome idea though.

I think the non-invasive way we can aid waking people up is to not allow yourself to be a character in their dream. Seeing a real and awake being is stirring. It off-ends some people… it rustles the awakeness latent deep within them and sometimes stirs conflicts with themselves that they need to resolve.

@mercurial, if you want to know what we’re talking about, read the thread. Why did you just make a meaningless post? Don’t like me now? Sorry; man-up, get over it, and stop calling people drunk when you don’t understand.

@mercurial, Give one of these kind people your address so they can send you a letter.
