drill to exercise the selective replaying of a piece
of reality that has been recorded by
the human mind, specifically a reality connected with body language. 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! The drill is most fun when people
can run around
while they are doing it, but with good preparation it can be done with
immobilized people too.
Explain the rules:
Divide the group of people into one half who is loudspeakers and another
half who is recorders (let them swap roles several times). Each of the
loudspeakers gets one recorder and delivers to him a series of
to acceptable spots on the body. Between the touches he delivers
a few (only indicated) punches.
The recorders must replay the light
touches, but must replace the punches
with a funny gesture that doesn't hit the loudspeaker. Every recorder
who punches the loudspeaker pays a fine!
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.
