 “The Chernobyl Herbarium is stunning. Taking ‘plants as their guides’, Michael Marder and Anaïs Tondeur cast us into the ‘exploded consciousness’ resulting from Chernobyl in this arresting collection that pairs philosophical meditations with imprints of radioactive plant specimens. Radiant, dazzling, disturbing, The Chernobyl Herbarium is utterly indispensable for anyone considering cataclysmic yet imperceptible events, the singularity of vegetal life, or the trans-species solidarities of exposure.” Stacy Alaimo, University of Texas at Arlington – author of Exposed: Politics and Pleasure in Posthuman Times and Bodily Natures: Science, Environment, and the Material Self."

An excellent piece written on our current political piece in this election year. Gives us an opportunity to view thru the lens of Pattern, Mythology and Archetype. You gotta love the wisdom of Michael Meade....well at least that's the view from my window. 
Bonnie Bright's curator insight, January 23, 3:13 AM
While the meaning of the word democracy remains a subject of much controversy, as does the practice of it; there is little doubt that democracy stands in opposition to all forms of tyranny. Fear not only causes people to abandon core principles; but it is said to be the parent of cruelty. Long before tyranny comes to rule, there is an escalation of both fear and cruelty. All cruelty comes from weakness and when people become overly fearful they not only support a would be “strong man,” but also become willing to overlook systematic cruelty....

The World Wide Web turned 28 today. But rather than celebrate, its inventor, Tim Berners-Lee, used the occasion to lay out what he sees as its greatest challenges. Specifically, Berners-Lee points to three threats: the loss of control of personal data, the spread of misinformation, and lack of transparency in political advertising.

A Giant Neuron Has Been Found Wrapped Around the Entire Circumference of the Brain

A Giant Neuron Has Been Found Wrapped Around the Entire Circumference of the Brain | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
For the first time, scientists have detected a giant neuron wrapped around the entire circumference of a mouse's brain, and it's so densely connected across both hemispheres, it could finally explain the origins of consciousness.

Using a new imaging technique, the team detected the giant neuron emanating from one of the best-connected regions in the brain, and say it could be coordinating signals from different areas to create conscious thought.

This recently discovered neuron is one of three that have been detected for the first time in a mammal's brain, and the new imaging technique could help us figure out if similar structures have gone undetected in our own brains for centuries.

At a recent meeting of the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies initiative in Maryland, a team from the Allen Institute for Brain Science described how all three neurons stretch across both hemispheres of the brain, but the largest one wraps around the organ's circumference like a "crown of thorns".

You can see them highlighted in the image at the top of the page.

Lead researcher Christof Koch told Sara Reardon at Nature that they've never seen neurons extend so far across both regions of the brain before.

Biographies

 

Poète et critique, Barrett Watten est un membre fondateur du mouvement Language. Il est l’auteur de Frame: 1971–1990, Progress/Under Erasure, Bad History, et poursuit actuellement la composition de Zone. Une traduction par Martin Richet de Plasma / Parallèles / « X » est disponible en français au Quartanier. De 1982 à 1998, Barrett Watten a dirigé la revue critique Poetics Journal avec Lyn Hejinian dont rend compte le volume A Guide to Poetics Journal: Writing in the Expanded Field, 1982–1998 (dir. Hejinian et Watten, Wesleyan 2012). Il est l’auteur de trois volumes d’essais critiques : Total Syntax  (Illinois, 1985), The Constructivist Moment: From Material Text to Cultural Poetics(Wesleyan, 2003) et tout récemment de Questions of Poetics. Language Writing and Consequences (Iowa, 2016). Avec Carrie Noland, il a dirigé le volume Diasporic Avant-Gardes: Experimental Poetics and Cultural Displacement (Palgrave, 2009). Il a coordonné et publié un projet d’autobiographie collective en dix volumes composé par dix membres du mouvement Language : The Grand Piano. An Experiment in Collective Autobiography San Francisco 1975–80 (Mode A, 2007-2010). Barrett Watten est professeur à Wayne State University à Detroit.

Véronique Pittolo se situe dans une écriture hybride, entre poésie et prose, dont l’unité est la phrase, le vers remodelé vers une possibilité narrative ou l’énoncé qui lui permet d’associer réflexion critique et enchantement poétique. Elle revisite le patrimoine commun pour réveiller les souvenirs du lecteurs, réactiver des bribes de ces fictions «éteintes», déplier les mythes pour les replier autrement : Hélène de Troie, Shreck, le petit chaperon rouge, Gary Cooper... Elle considère ses propres textes comme une matière vivante à réactiver, lors de lectures publiques, par exemple. Elle est l’auteur d’une quinzaine de livres, la plupart parus aux éditions de l’Attente et chez Al Dante et de plusieurs projets multimédias. En 2012, Toute Résurrection commence par les pieds se présentait comme un recueil de poèmes critiques interrogeant la place du féminin dans l’art occidental de la Renaissance au XXème siècle. En 2014, Une jeune fille dans tout le royaume proposait trois contes contemporains qui fustigeaient les clichés d’une certaine éducation bourgeoise, catholique et policée. Monomère & Maxiplace est à paraître aux éditions de l’Attente en 2017.

Physicists Make the Case That Our Brains' Learning Is Controlled by Entropy

Physicists Make the Case That Our Brains' Learning Is Controlled by Entropy | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
The way our brains learn new information has puzzled scientists for decades - we come across so much new information daily, how do our brains store what's important, and forget the rest more efficiently than any computer we've built?

It turns out that this could be controlled by the same laws that govern the formation of the stars and the evolution of the Universe, because a team of physicists has shown that, at the neuronal level, the learning process could ultimately be limited by the laws of thermodynamics.

"The greatest significance of our work is that we bring the second law of thermodynamics to the analysis of neural networks," lead researcher Sebastian Goldt from the University of Stuttgart in Germany told Lisa Zyga from Phys.org.

The second law of thermodynamics is one of the most famous physics laws we have, and it states that the total entropy of an isolated system always increases over time.

Entropy is a thermodynamic quantity that's often referred to as a measure of disorder in a system. What that means is that, without extra energy being put into a system, transformations can't be reversed - things are going to get progressively more disordered, because it's more efficient that way.

Entropy is currently the leading hypothesis for why the arrow of time only ever marches forwards. The second law of thermodynamics says that you can't un-crack an egg, because it would lower the Universe's entropy, and for that reason, there will always be a future and a past.

But what does this have to do with the way our brains learn? Just like the bonding of atoms and the arrangement of gas particles in stars, our brains are designed to find the most efficient way to organise themselves.

"The second law is a very powerful statement about which transformations are possible - and learning is just a transformation of a neural network at the expense of energy," Goldt explained to Zyga.

If you keep in mind the fact that learning in its most simplistic form is controlled by billions of neurons firing inside our brains, then finding patterns in that energy output becomes a little easier.

To model how this works, Goldt and his team set up a neural network - a computer system that models the activity of neurons in the human brain.

"Virtually every organism gathers information about its noisy environment and builds models from those data, mostly using neural networks," the team writes in Physical Review Letters.

What the researchers were looking for is how neurons filter out the noise, and only respond to impor
