I once saw a post on Facebook that had a picture of a pigeon and asked the writer, “Is that a bird or a pigeon?” He said that he thought it was a pigeon, but thought it might be the comment was too personal so he edited it and reposted it. I thought that was a pretty bad example of pigeonholing. And I don’t know how anyone could really pigeonholing a bird.
We’ve been looking into the issue of whether or not to include a photo in the trailer. The first article I wrote on the topic was about the story trailer, which didn’t have a photo, so I took it offline and posted it. The trailer was pretty much about the birds and the pigeon and that’s what I’ve posted as a post to the trailer.
I am actually fairly confident that the poster did not post it as the only photo of the birds, but rather as a “background” photo. It wasnt really even an image at all. Also, the poster was not trying to pigeonholed the bird, but just was trying to find a photo of the bird in its natural habitat.
I think it’s fair to say that the birds and birdsong are a bit of a dead end when it comes to life. As a scientist, you can’t imagine a bird taking up one of the few hours you’ll spend in the bird’s body. If you take the bird’s body to one of the other scientists, you can see it’s a human being.
This is where pigeonholing comes in. The problem comes when you pigeon-hole it to just a single species. It becomes meaningless. Think of how many species youve encountered in nature and what they mean to you personally. If you pigeon-hole yourself to just a single species, you lose the human element.
Now you might ask, “what does this have to do with painting my house?” Well, it’s a lot more than that. When you pigeon-hole yourself to just one type of living creature in your life, you lose the ability to be aware of who you are. We all have a certain “type” of personality, so pigeon-holing ourselves to a single type of person is the ultimate waste of energy.
We pigeon-hole ourselves to just one type of living creature in our lives, because we don’t want to let go of our individuality. It’s the same reason why we pigeon-hole ourselves to just one type of profession or hobby. We don’t want to let go of our “selfs” and the freedom that comes with it. We don’t want to let go of the fact that we’re human, that we have desires, passions, and needs.
Not only does it pigeon-hole us to one type of person, but it pigeon-holes us to a particular place or time. For instance, if we pigeon-hole ourselves to a particular job, we want to stop looking for a new one. We want to stop looking for jobs that require us to move to the next city.
