How Do We Look At The World!

Our View-Point Of Looking At The World.

We live in a vibrant and complex world, every moment we are bombarded with information trying to get our attention, to function in this complex environment we rely on our five senses:

  1. Hearing

  2. Sight

  3. Taste

  4. Smell

  5. Touch

It is incredible that our capabilities include the ability to identify what is going on in the world around us and to act on that knowledge. Did you know that each of our eyes continuously receives more than one megabyte of data?

This is the same as reading through a whole reference book on a continuous basis. One whiff of a natural odour is all it takes to trigger a memory from one's youth, and our skin contains north of 4,000,000 receptors that give us vital information about temperature, tension, surface, and torment. We can hear a person murmuring from 10 metres away or someone yelling from 100 metres away in under a millisecond.

Because our senses provide us with an overwhelming quantity of information, our minds have developed strategies for sorting, decoding, and successfully responding to it. It focuses in particular on things that are hazardous and might cause us harm, information that is inherent to us or essential to our survival, items that have the potential to make us happy or be awarded to us, and things that are unusual, intriguing, or otherwise novel.

The substance of geography may be broken down into three categories: perspectives, knowledge, and skills. In general, a viewpoint is a framework that may be used to understand the meanings of experiences, events, places, people, cultures, and physical surroundings. This can be done in a number of different ways. Having a perspective implies viewing the world through a filter that is formed by one's own experiences, the information that one chooses to focus on, and one's own appraisal of that information.

Geography is distinguished from other methods, such as economic and historical studies, by the views it offers and the issues it raises as a result. A frame of reference is provided by a viewpoint, which allows for questions to be asked and answered, issues to be recognised and solved, and the implications of different actions to be evaluated.

In some instances, the information that our faculties gather may appear to be confusing or fragmented. Our mind then draws on our memories, previous encounters, and current feelings to make a ballpark estimation of what may be happening; it fills in the spaces. Most of the time, these speculations are helpful to us; however, in some instances, they fall short. By this, not only may we misunderstand the data entirely, but the sheer amount of data available can quickly obscure our view.

To become a person who is spatially aware, it is necessary to obtain, comprehend, and make use of a wide variety of viewpoints. This type of person is aware that every person has their own personal points of view that are based on their own unique life experiences; they acknowledge the existence of various ways of looking at the world; they comprehend how various points of view emerge; they are conscious that points of view incorporate values, attitudes, and beliefs; they take into consideration a variety of perspectives when analyzing, evaluating, and solving a problem; and they are aware that points of view can shift over time.

Our brains have a propensity to store an excessive amount of information and often fail to noticeably remember important tidbits of facts. Our level of understanding and consideration determines the quality of the world we perceive. The first way that insight assists us is by drawing our attention to the conditions that we are now in and the information on the social events that are occurring in our immediate surrounds. When all of the information is gathered, our consideration aids by focusing on the parts that are most relevant to the problem at hand.

By gaining a grasp of the inner workings of these cycles as well as the challenges they provide, we may get a stronger command over our brain and ensure that our goals are met.
