Editorial Bias Tape: Directional Reliance, False Exclusion, And Fear

Hairy's presence has been detected at various intervals between here and various undesirable destinations. Contact has not resumed during strobing, as current equipment has not activated in sufficient time. As regular intervals are desirable to public interaction, one 'week' has passed as an appropriate maximum for blogging.

Today's topic will be bias, drawn from Hairy's memory bank backup, currently stored upon ancient medium.

Obviously, fishermen have their own opinions of what is possible or impossible, based upon their individual backgrounds. That statement can be demonstrated by the following quotations of fishermen seeing Hairy for the first time.

Q1: What-the-#$%&-is-that?
Q2: Don't eat me!
Q4: No, Bart--I've had enough beer for now.
Q5: !@#$%^&*()_!@#$%^&*()
Q6: Auuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh!
Q7: It can't be . . .

Quotations #1 and #3 were perfectly logical questions. Quotations #4 and #7 clearly state the fallacy that anything outside that person's experience cannot be real. Quotations #2, #5, and #6 all express unfounded but reasonable emotions for someone facing a new experience. Fear at being introduced to someone new is well-founded and has been noted in many human psychology texts.

The three categories demonstrated are: logical, fallacious, and purely emotional. Many of the non-quoted include nonverbal expressions of emotion, and quantifiably exceed the rest. Between the two groupings of logical responses, one grouping promotes self-dialogue in a manner that suggests society as a good source of knowledge. The other grouping promotes anthropomorphization, which, though useful and relatively correct, implies that oneself is the best source of information in the lack of sentient company.

These two beliefs are different views of the world, or biases, based on levels of self-reliance and the individual's past success at eliciting assistance.

All these interactions have been 'forgotten,' so as to promote no harm. [disconnect]
