drill to exercise the selective replaying of a piece
of reality that has been recorded by
the human mind. For
people who have humor
and like fun. It can be done with children at school, even in kindergarten, but
don't hesitate to do it with adults as well! They even can be immobilized, as in
hospital beds etc.
Explain the rules:
One person is the loudspeaker, the others are recorders. The loudspeaker
speaks or sings a string of words (can be on a popular tune), the others
must repeat it. Go through that exercise until every person who
participates has been the loudspeaker once.
Now have the loudspeaker speak or
sing a string of words where some nasty words are mixed in. Tell
everybody what exactly the nasty words can be. The recorders must
filter out the nasty words
and say or sing "hmp!" instead. Every recorder who replays a nasty word
pays a fine of a small coin (good opportunity to get rid of some
change...) Let everybody be the loudspeaker at least once.
Congratulate all the recorders to
their beautifully working "smart chips" that have made such an
intelligent difference between what can be replayed
and what cannot be replayed.
Then put all the fines together and buy some icecream or another treat for everybody.
