Cytaty, ostatni miesiąc (tu są wszystkie, większą czcionką)
Ravens have paranoid, abstract thoughts about other minds
… The ability to think abstractly about other minds is singled out by many as a uniquely human trait. Now,
… Theory of Mind
… The ability to hide food is extremely important to ravens, and they behave completely differently when they feel they are being watched
… Completing this evolutionary and developmental picture will bring us much closer to figuring out what's really unique about the human mind /17-07-21
… There might be some pre-geometry, that would give rise to geometry just like atoms give rise to the continuum of elastic bodies.
… The flow of time is an illusion
… there are intervals of time between different events; that’s what clocks measure.
… it’s a feeling we have, but it’s not a property of time itself.
… Time doesn’t flow. That’s part of psychology.
… even space-time itself is a product of the special early stage of the universe. We don’t know that.
… the ultimate origin of the arrow of time, which is the asymmetry of the world in time, is still a bit contentious.
… there’s still experiments can be done in particle physics that might disclose this time-reversal asymmetry which is there in the weak interaction, and how that fits in with the arrow of time. /17-07-21
the brain creates a representation in our heads of the world around us
… the idea that experience, and in particular color, is all generated in the brain—leads to some sloppy science
… The question of what’s “there” or what’s “now” is complex.
… Neuroscientists can’t disprove it, or prove that the experience is “generated” in the head.
… Rather than doing any real science, we are hearing fantasies about downloading consciousness into computers and the like. /17-07-21
Trump’s speech at Krasinski Square, in Warsaw,
boosted Poland’s ruling right-wing party but produced few other tangible results.
… Jarosław Kaczyński, the Party’s leader, touted Trump’s visit as a “new success” for Poland
… a method from the old Communist playbook
… free bus rides to Warsaw
… “Poles for Poland.”
… Copernicus, Chopin, and John Paul II
… Poland will be free now. /17-06-08
… the boom in bitcoin, a digital currency, is extraordinary
… If bitcoin and the other cryptocurrencies are unlike anything else, what are they?
… how to maintain a public database (the “blockchain”) without anybody in particular, a bank, say, being in charge
… decentralised upstarts taking aim at today’s oligopolistic technology giants, such as Amazon and Facebook /17-06-30
Distance Between Language and Truth
… Radio is a spectral art, transmitted through the air; its pure aurality disembodies the teller and the tale.
… People, too, he says, can’t always been seen because “one day they die.” Reality, it seems, is full of holes.
… Not seeing becomes a kind of Cartesian believing.
… an artist whose vision is limited to what is right in front of him, literally outside his window. He suffers a crisis of faith, questioning the value of “looking more precisely” at certain objects /17-06-30
