When someone sees any possible detail that changes one person from another. This vision is often used to tell how someone feels, or how old someone is. The better your vision, the easier it is to tell the traits of someone just by looking at them.
Merlin has a really good artist's vision. He asked this one chick about herself saying stuff like, "Are you 15?" and he was right about everything!
"Dinosaur eyes take in a wider view, bending in at the edges like a glass globe filled with water. Nothing is gray or drab or dull; rather they see swimming particles of color, a moving mosaic of dancing colored specks. As we would see a starscape in the night sky, they see a sparkling "lifescape" in the woods by day, a world teeming with life.
Some humans see with dinosaur vision, Bix explained: artists, poets, and children. But for the rest of us, as we grow older, the mammalian part of the brain clouds over the reptilian part, and drains away a little glory of the world." --James Gurney, "Dinotopia"
Rose lenses or dinosaur vision, I tell you life is still glorious. Or at least, I want to believe that it is. Give me screwdriver so that I might fix these damned glasses!
The initials of the French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier. Gaultier is one of the few artists within the fashion industry. His designs are strongly shaped around surrealism, abstraction, and the the fashion of the 1930s/40s French style. Jean Paul Gaultier consistently challenges fashion's typical "norms" and is always on the cutting edge of fashion--always moving us to the future with his artistic vision. A true leader in fashion, Gaultier, unlike many, is much less mainstream, and he chooses to advertise less, making him a more underground, exclusive label.
If you were to compare the "greatest" American labels--Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, etc.--none of them consist of an ounce of artistic vision, the exceptional quality of JPG, nor a stand-out-from-the-crowd experience.
A red hot speed bump in life that stops you dead in your tracks, and makes you take a deep hard look at how you will proceed. This can be a dramatic experience, epiphany, quote, song, movie, etc. that unexpectedly forces you into a new awareness of life as you know it. They can be great assets when trying to fulfill dreams that require deeper life experience to reach success. They are especially valuable to artists, where expression is their profession. Typically, a wise elder can tell you how to find them.
I hit a lavabumpy yesterday when trying to give that speech in front of my entire office. Public speaking is a whole new world for me. I am really happy I overcame my fears.

spa·ghet·toe's noun \spə-ˈge-toe's\more...
Spaghettoz is the Ramen noodle based version of regular spaghetti, it is cooked just like ramen but the flavor packet is replaced with 4 to 5 tablespoons of spaghetti sauce instead. The flavor packet can then be used for other dishes.
Spaghettoz is different because,,
1st and foremost, the cost. Spaghettoz, the drained ramen noodles alone is 13 to 25 cents a serving with 15 to 100% more when sauce is added, compared to 94 cents to over 7 dollars for a single serving of regular spaghetti and sauce.
2nd is the time in which Spaghettoz takes to cook, 2 to 3 min. vs 9 to 15 minutes for regular spaghetti.
The 3rd difference is usually but not always, the people who eat Spaghettoz. Spaghettoz consumers are typically mid to low income, budget conscience, innovative and usually physically hard working folks but not always. Many Spaghettoz consumers are college students, artists and people wanting to make a positive change in their lives and the world's.
The 4th difference is the taste. There are as many flavors to Spaghettoz as there are pasta sauce and seasoning makers. Twice there was a blindfolded taste test in the 1990's using the same sauce and seasoning's on both a bowl of regular spaghetti and a bowl of ramen based Spaghettoz. Both times Spaghettoz won 6 to 4 out of 10 judges. This was a non-scientific poll but definitely caused a commotion in the small Seattle food scene.

Philip K. Dick was a writer of great talent without a post-secondary education (he enrolled in college but dropped out before attending a single class). Over the course of his life he experimented with most psychotropic drugs available and eventually gave himself pancreatic damage by doing so.
He wrote 29 novels and over a hundred short stories, many of which ("Blade Runner", "Total Recall", "Paycheck") were later adapted to movies after his death in the early 80s.
He, like many other artists, lived in poverty for most of his life and was recognized only by a small following, however after his death he has continued to gain notoriety and is, in certain circles, seen as a sort of messiah for the modern age in his unique vision of the changing world.
Philip K. Dick is possibly the greatest writer to come out of the second half of the 20th century.
