(Part 19 at 32:42)

accepting the world as a recording studio means the environment is an art form (due to "the net of electric information")
32:42

McLuhan explains Pop Art ("we then suddenly become tremendously self-conscious of all sounds and effects of that environment as if it were a work of Art")
33:25

McLuhan then reads various short statements on:
humor, Art, and games
34:00

more on games, golf, and Art
35:45

"Rocket" Richard, games, industrial cultures, and Art
38:25

the "newspaper game", bad news explained, and the British and Americans
40:51

"the medium is the massage", games, boxing, and wrestling
43:22

"Help!" vs "Fire!"
44:54

more on humor, fun and play

the entire world's population can live in Manitoba, "population explosion", Black Hole of Calcutta, "infinite mass" and wars, and nose counting vs. "creatures of mood" (a block of color as in my Tiny Note Chart), "Playback" (focus groups) vs. cancer research, McLuhan is not FOR what he talks about, judging becomes an outer activity, end of capital punishment (HCE is guilty), the Uncertainty Principle
49:47

consciousness as process
