It is a commendable character trait to not judge a person by their appearance. As such I try not to build up a preconception of interviewees before I meet them, from experience I am always off the mark, the question is only by how much. It is difficult, if not impossible, not to judge.
I suppose this is one thing one might look to take away from a project like MIP. Seeing how many people are capable of incredible, original, thoughtful, productive lives... despite circumstance or appearance or health is evidenced in the films on this site. However there is always judgment in the journey between one sense and the other. She looks nice, he looks like he smells good, he sounds like he looks young, she feels like she tastes good... hmmm, perhaps not, but our brains do work like this, leaving them open for misconception, misinterpretation, flights of fancy... more to the point, emotion.
I did not expect to come away from my meeting with Prof. Kentenich considering the workings of the brain and the feeling they relay. Kentenich is a fertility doctor, charged with the job of making babies in test tubes not to consider notions of god, the history of ideas, the workings of the brain. But this is what Kentenich is about, despite my preconceptions of him!
