THE VIBE MASTER
This was a rather interesting encounter for me. One of my students had looked at me and claimed that a song that she was going to introduce to me had the same "Vibe" as me. This prompted a nearby student to try to "see" my vibe. He claimed that he could see the vibe of everyone by creating a window using his hands. Fascinated, I asked him to try.
To many adults, this is nonsense.."what do you mean you can see the vibe of a person?" after all there is no proof that this phenomenon can exist. Many would quickly dismiss such behavior as fantastically imaginative. After all there is no conclusive scientific proof that this phenomenon can exist in the world. Similar I think to how people had treated Kandinsky's claim that he had a case of "Synethesia" a condition that allowed him to see music notes as waves of color. Regardless of how famous Kandinsky had eventually become, his claim to "Synethesia" remains as a claim.
Perhaps like Kandinsky, this boy's claim to seeing a person's vibe will always remain a claim. But I think we shouldn't be so quick to dismiss all these fantastical beliefs. After all, math and science are still evolving, humans have only in the last 10 -15 years been heavily exposed to technology. There are still many things in the world that are not conclusive. Hence we shouldn't be so quick to assume that strange and different things are not real. Therefore, when someone claims to see or believe in something, we might not see it, but it doesn't necessarily mean it's not real.
