Low, warm, voiceovers. The obviously forced inclusion of different ethnicities. Sped-up footage of people walking through cities. These are just some of the generic images and graphics that this hilarious video parodies with "This is a generic brand."

Jerónimo M.M.'s insight:

The first comment made me think "This 'we are one' stuff only ever works on paper or in those lazy lecture afternoons. A gift of the gab speaker does their thing in a hall somewhere for a fee and when the talk is up and everybody screeches their chair back, heads for the exit, fights to get out of car park before all the other jackasses and beat the evening traffic to throw some dead animal in the oven for dinner, the talk has worn off and its business as usual. "

There is a kernel of truth in it.  The question is: What to do now you know All Is One?

Cory Doctorow: Cheap Writing Tricks

Cory Doctorow: Cheap Writing Tricks | quest inspiration | Scoop.it

Plots are funny things. In the real world, stuff is always happening, but it’s not a plot. People live. People die. People are made glorious or miserable. Things eagerly awaited are realized, or hopes are cruelly dashed. Love is gained; love is lost. But all these things are not a plot – they lack the fundamental tidiness and orderliness that makes a story a story.

In fiction-land, stories have beginnings, middles and ends. They have dramatic tension, which rises to a climax towards the end of the story, and then roll on a while longer, into denouement. A plot is what you get when you draw a line around a set of circumstances and say, ‘‘These things are all part of one story, and they comprise its beginning, middle and end, and its arc from low tension to high. This moment here is the climax of this story.’’

That line is wholly arbitrary, of course – your personal life-story’s climax is merely a passing moment in someone else’s arc – but the really weird thing is that a story that lacks this arbitrariness feels arbitrary. A bunch of things that happen without any curation or pruning away of extraneous moments do not a story make, despite the fact that this is how the world actually works.

So plots are funny. Unless you enumerate a world that is patently false, it won’t ring true.
