Braco gaze trainer

  [vote for,

Braco is a gaze healer. He must be using eye contact to diffuse negative energy in social groups. I imagine one could practice this by practicing resisting instinctive eye movements during eye contact with at first another person and then groups of people. So this could be even as simple as just a series of YouTube videos of people gazing into the camera and interacting (they could use a half mirrored camera to record one side of a conversation - to make it natural, or just have an actor do stuff with the purpose of eliciting instinctive eye movements that the subject could then practice resisting.)

Once you got really good at resisting then you could have more distance from, so less engagement with, and hopefully more awareness of the energy running around in social groups via eye contact. And then learn to diffuse energy around a group rather than participating in it's escalation by reacting. So, come on fellow nerds geeks and aspies, can't we turn our powerful computer technology upon this issue?

       Wow that guy looks like the Mona Lisa.   

       In one of Charles Darwin's books, he relates a story about a friend who suffered from severe stage fright. Once he stood up in front of a crowd to give a speech and his nervousness overwhelmed him and confused him. He thought he was talking, but was actually just standing there. And the crowd was too embarrassed to say anything to him about it, so they just congratulated him afterward and pretended like he had actually been talking. I wonder if Braco isn't trapped in a similar situation -- the audience reaffirms that he has does something good, and he doesn't realize that he's not even saying anything.

       I like the idea that eye movements can be used to influence others in subtle ways. That makes a lot of sense. Some of those cops who seem to be mind readers just have their left brains clued in to the situation. I bet on some level lots of people understand what is going on in other people's eyes.   

       And dogs! No keener observers of humans than dogs. Maybe start with dogs. Plus they work cheap.
