Good job guys on Part 1:

Lots of excellent observations.
The images put forth are not necessarily supposed to be automatically recognizable to all people. Some will connect to some images immediately, while others might not. But as you keep looking, you will see new things. The end purpose is multifaceted. But there is purpose that will relate to anyone that contemplates the images as they have been put forth.
Very specific and everything by design.

I'll admit I'm struggling with the third image here lag. I can see subtle differences but not clear on what it is. Its 02.30 am, forgive my tiredness

The difference in the baseball fields is that the home plate to first base line has been bent in the outfield for the bottom pic.

I think 4a is a trampoline, and 4b is?????

Maybe this one needs to swirl around a day or two in our subconscious before answering.

4a is a poker table. Game of skill and strategy.

4b is a craps table. Game of luck.

As a lefty, I see the baseball fields a little differently than I'm sure they're intended. 3a (ABS) has less room on the 1st base line than 3b (non-ABS) because as a lefty ABS student, the pull/hook miss is minimized. The field shapes symbolize dispersion patterns before (3b) and after (3a) ABS training.

I'm sure that's not what we're supposed to get out of them, though....

Old Equipment vs New Equipment
is like..........
Slalom Skiing to Ski Jumping
Slalom skiing is about moving and pressuring your body and skis into and out of turns Ideally faster coming out of a turn than into it.
Post impact acceleration........
Ski jumping is about reaching maximum speed(straight line) right before the jump and not after.
Pivot stall, Dump. Deceleration.
Baseball Field(old) to Baseball Field (New? Reconfigured?)
The old baseball field has a smaller outfield area putting a premium on hitting, keeping the ball in play and being able to hit to all fields.
Hitting fairways and greens like the great ball strikers used to.
The new baseball field has wide open areas turning balls that normally would be sure outs into hits!
Players stats skyrocket. But are they really better than the players before them who had to be so much better hitters?
These Guys are good! Wait a second are you really sure about that?
*Have to take a flyer on the 4th row objects so humor me......
Poker chip to Craps table
Poker is a game of chance but a game that as you get better(technique,experience,skill) the odds get stacked in your favor.
Like golf you are going to get some bad breaks sometimes, but if you work on your craft over time(the right way) you can be a pretty good player. You can minimize your bad breaks.
Modules and drills
Craps table. A complete roll of the dice. Joe Blow can come in and get hot for a while. But the odds will never ever favor him. It's a crap shoot!
A lot like wanting a good golf swing or game without putting in the time or effort to get better. Hoping that one tip or new driver will make everything better instantly.The magic pill.

Got to pass on the last few objects for now. My brain hurts! :)

5a are the red balls at the start of a game of snooker. Snooker is a subtle game of strategy - not just about potting balls but about positioning and safety, plotting the position of the white ball around the table at all times; the pockets are small and require a very accurate shot to be potted. 5b is 9-ball pool which is far more of a shoot-out - the pockets are bigger and there is very little strategy (to me anyway - 9-ball enthusiasts will surely say otherwise!).

A kayak and a jet ski..........a jet ski has to have enough speed to keep it 'on plane' in the water or else it doesn't handle well. The kayak settles into the water, without 'planing', and works with the water for stability. With a jet ski, the faster you go the easier the handling while 'on plane' in the water, but one small mistake can spell disaster. :)
