Visual Intelligence?

(Processing what we see?)
We need to believe what we see even when it means we might have to think the unthinkable and say the unspeakable. We cannot ignore warning signs because they seem to portend the impossible. ... We can't gloss over facts that we find distasteful, distressing, or disturbing because the unimaginable happens every day.1

Are we prepared yet to apply VISUAL INTELLIGENCE to the
▪ cannibal-cake fêtes of Hollywood?
▪ “art” of the Podestas?
▪ “pizza-laden” emails?
▪ Uranium One dox and documentations?
▪ # of dying journalists, witnesses, et al. on the eve of trials, interviews, exposés?
▪ Clinton Global Foundation (et al.) filings and fabrications?
▪ Trump tweets, twists, turns, and turnovers?
▪ T-shirt v. testimony of Andy McCabe?
▪ recycling crisis actors?
▪ scripted “lone-wolf”/patsy déjà vus?
severely-wounded “traumites” dispassionately gesturing on MSM?
▪ etc., etc., etc.
(If you don't recognize some of the above references, google, youtube, or wiki them or read some past Déjà Vu posts.)
Here is a visual exercise. What do you see in this linked presentation which was almost immediately removed from YouTube for allegedly violating their policy against bullying and harassment? Does your view differ from what Dammegard sees? from what YouTube saw? Are there warning signs portending the impossible? exposing the unthinkable? (Time 1:51:49)
Is it time to sharpen our perceptions? to help change the world? Perhaps we can begin by reading Herman's book: Visual Intelligence: Sharpen Your Perception, Change Your Life. It is well worth the read.

Let us, at last, begin to acknowledge what we see (including about YouTube); then follow the clues of what we know, to the facts of what we don't know and what we need to know.
