Direct Experince/Seeing by Scenario

"A setting, in particular for a work of art or literature:"

Example's of Direct Experince

1....Life Drawing..actually drawing from a model,interacting with the model,seeing they are simply human

2....Actually going to a Art Museum,Gallery

3....Drawing something directly from nature,being in nature

This writing is all about the need for Direct Experince

Scenario Learning

This is a Idea,..I came up with after researching on the web,,(searchs I conducted have been: "Learning by Senario" "Senario Learning".. The idea is to form a Scenario in one's own mind,.. example I formed the Idea-"I live as presently the ,it is the year 2018,I am aware of the state of being just as it is now,I fall a sleep,..upon waking I find myself laying naked,alone along side a large river(I visualize it as the Mississippi river,simply because I have spent much time on this river)...the Scenario begins!..the key here to me is by creating the Scenario,I am creating a Frame I must stay in,thus helping myself focus on what I now am feeling as I sit here in the state of "being next to this river",,,what do I do?..how do I feel?..this is a long story in it's self which I am writing out separate from here( yet at this point,,after the first day,,I find no signs of Civilization)...this idea of Scenario Teaching is based on the "Old-Ways" of story telling of past cultures(around the camp fire,in a social relaxed setting)

I am thinking this can greatly enhance empathy,through visualizing,slowing us down,thus enhancing contemplation

“You can take a book to the beach without worrying about sand getting in its works. You can take it to bed without being nervous about it falling to the floor should you nod off. You can spill coffee on it. You can sit on it. You can put it down on a table, open to the page you’re reading, and when you pick it up a few days later it will still be exactly as you left it. You never have to be concerned about plugging a book into an outlet or having its battery die.” Nicholas Carr,The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains;

I thought the following video with Jordan Peterson touches on Direct experience in a certain way
