Le Collège d'études mondiales - FMSH | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it

Le Collège se structure autour de trois axes principaux : celui du « vivre ensemble » et de la démocratie ; celui des droits de l’homme, du gouvernement de la vie et des risques « globaux » ; celui, enfin, de la production de normes et de frontières dans un monde qui se réorganise. Résolument international, soutenu par quatre prix Nobel (Herta Müller, Yuan-tseh Lee, Joseph Eugene Stiglitz et Wole Soyinka), le Collège entend créer à Paris un milieu scientifique, dense et vivant, et enraciner en France des paradigmes, des modes d’approche, des méthodes de travail et des lignes de recherche portant sur des enjeux insuffisamment explorés dans ce pays.

Creative People Literally See the World Differently, Mind-Blowing Research Shows | #Creativity

Creative people aren't just different because of the surprising and valuable work they produce. Nor is exceptional creativity all a matter of personality. The differences between the creatively gifted and the rest of us apparently go even deeper, according to mind-blowing recent research.

In fact, creative people actually see the world differently, according to a fascinating recent post on The Conversation by two Australian psychologists.

(Agenda) 26 au 28 mai, Lagrasse, Banquet du livre de Printemps | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it

BANQUET du LIVRE de PRINTEMPS 2017 qui aura lieu du vendredi 26 mai (15h) au dimanche 28 mai (18h).

Cette année, nous irons à la rencontre d’« Israël et ses littératures ». 

Voici le dossier de presse, de ce Banquet prometteur de ciels élargis !

 

. Le thème 

Un pays neuf – soixante-dix ans l’an prochain – et une tradition de pensée et d’écriture qui remonte aux âges les plus anciens, la richesse de langues et de traditions multiples, Israël est un cas à part dans le paysage des littératures étrangères. Ses romanciers, ses poètes, reflètent la singularité d’une société plurielle, violemment tiraillée entre des forces contraires : la guerre et la paix, la laïcité et la religion, la densité de son histoire spirituelle et la frivolité d’une modernité affirmée. Entre l’Orient et l’Occident. Un pays minuscule, qui donne au monde littéraire de nombreux écrivains en hébreu, en anglais et en français. Il n’est pas surprenant que la richesse de la littérature israélienne d’aujourd’hui intéresse de plus en plus éditeurs et lecteurs francophones.

 

. Les auteurs invités 

Valérie Zénatti / Dory Manor / Moshe Sakal / Gilles Rozier / Michal Govrin / Dror Mishani

 

. Le programme

Des rencontres // Des tables rondes // Du cinéma // Des lectures // Une soirée musicale // Une librairie

Earth Just Passed 410 Ppm CO2 Levels for the First Time in Human History

Earth Just Passed 410 Ppm CO2 Levels for the First Time in Human History | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
On April 18, Earth breached its latest climate change milestone. For the first time in human history, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels were measured at 410 parts per million (ppm).

The Keeling Curve, a University of California San Diego, Scripps Institution of Oceanography program, recorded the milestone at Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. This was a sobering moment for scientists, albeit hardly surprising.

Since last year, when our planet's dangerous new normal atmospheric CO2 levels were 400 ppm, scientists have warned the public that the next milestone of 410 ppm was coming.

"We're in a new era," Ralph Keeling, director of the Scripps Institution's CO2 Program told Yale Environment 360 at the time we passed this milestone.

"And it's going fast," Keeling added. "We're going to touch up against 410 pretty soon."

There is nothing uniquely significant about the numbers 400 or 410, but they offer points of comparison to scientists.

"These milestones are just numbers, but they give us an opportunity to pause and take stock and act as useful yard sticks for comparisons to the geological record," University of Southampton palaeoclimate researcher Gavin Foster explained to Climate Central in March.

Much of the data in The Keeling Curve were obtained from the Solar Observatory on the summit of Mauna Loa on Hawaii Island (my home).  We have now entered an era of climate extremes, thanks to pollution and other human-related activities.  We must adjust and get accustomed to a new way of living.

Brain scans highlight a hidden, "higher" state of consciousness

Brain scans highlight a hidden, "higher" state of consciousness | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
Reaching a higher state of consciousness is a concept you're more likely to hear a spiritualist spout than a scientist, but now neuroscientists at the University of Sussex claim to have found the first evidence of just such a state. From wakefulness down to a deep coma, consciousness is on a sliding scale measured by the diversity of brain signals, and the researchers found that when under the influence of psychedelic drugs, that diversity jumps to new heights above the everyday baseline.

The research builds on data gathered about a year ago by a team at Imperial College London, which dosed up volunteers with psychedelics, including LSD, psilocybin and ketamine, then scanned their brains with magnetoencephalographic (MEG) techniques to examine the effects. This new study set out to determine how a psychedelic state would compare to other levels of wakefulness and unconsciousness, according to a scale of brain signal diversity measured by monitoring the magnetic fields produced by the brain.

When a person is asleep, their brain signals are far less diverse than when they're awake and aware, and past research has noted that it varies by what stage of the sleep cycle they're in. Being put under different types of anaesthesia induce even lower scores, and it bottoms out for those in a vegetative state. But this is the first time signal diversity has been seen to be higher than the normal readings of an alert, conscious mind.
"This finding shows that the brain-on-psychedelics behaves very differently from normal," says Anil Seth, corresponding author of the study. "During the psychedelic state, the electrical activity of the brain is less predictable and less 'integrated' than during normal conscious wakefulness – as measured by 'global signal diversity.' Since this measure has already shown its value as a measure of 'conscious level', we can say that the psychedelic state appears as a higher 'level' of consciousness than normal – but only with respect to this specific mathematical measure."

The secrets of phonosemantics (part I)

The secrets of phonosemantics (part I) | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it

The question of how things are named has been raised and discussed since the Ancient Times. In this post we explore what are the secrets hidden behind one of the most enigmatic fields within linguistics: phonosemantics.

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe

This is the extract from the well-known nonsense poem “Jabberwocky” written by L. Carroll for his novel Alice in Wonderland.  Although most of the words don’t exist in the English language, the reader can vaguely imagine what is described in this stanza. It happens partly due to some function words that indicate the different parts of speech, and partly due to the phonetic structure of these made-up words that draw the pictures of the funny creatures in our minds. We can guess that “brillig” describes the weather condition and that “toves” must be small and slippery because they are called “slithy”, and that “mimsy” could be something flimsy and noisy. The novel Alice in Wonderland was translated into 174 languages and the translators from all over the world managed to convey the original “meaning” of the poem into their native language. Was it just pure imagination that lead the translators in their work or sounds may have a semantic meaning, just like every word has? The theory of phonosemantics or onomatopoeia suggests some answers to these questions.
The question of how things are named was first raised in Ancient Times. Some ancient philosophers thought that things are named by people’s agreement and that there is no connection between the meaning and the “sounding” of the word. Other thinkers supposed that the name of a thing can somehow imply its essence. Plato believed that people are free to choose the name for things but their choice is not random at all but dependent on the features of the thing as well as on the features of the sounds. Then in the epoch of Renaissance the idea of phonosemantics was highly criticised by J. Lock who saw no connection between sounds and ideas and described his arguments in An Essay of Human Understanding. In the 18th century, Leibniz disagreed with J. Lock in some points and admitted that the connection between the sounds and the meaning is not completely arbitrary.
In the meantime, Russian scientist and poet Mikhail Lomonosov made a hypothesis in which he stated that the repetition of the vowels i, e, yu may be used to create the effect of something tender, pleasant and soft, and the words with the repeated sounds o, u, y may be used to depict something terrifying, dark and cold. In 1836 Wilhelm von Humboldt distinguished between different relationship of sounds and meaning: onomatopoeia (the imitation of natural sounds and other sounds) and sound symbolism.  In the 20th century phonosemantics was recognized as a branch of linguistics by most linguists and its ideas gave the inspiration for tons of different researches and experiments in developing and young branches of linguistics, such as psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, cognitive linguistics and others. In 1930 John Rupert Firth studied certain combination of sounds in different words and proposed the term “phonestheme” to refer to a sound sequence and a meaning with which it is frequently associated. For example, the English /gl/ in initial position is contained in the words which relate to something shiny, radiant, connected with light: glear, glim, glimmer, glint, glister, glitter, glamour, glory, gloss. The same relation between the combination of sounds and the meaning can be found in other languages. In German, for example, the combinations kno/knö denote something small and round: Knoblauch (garlic), Knopf (button), Knospe (bud of a plant), Knoten (knot), Knöchel (ankle), Knödel (dumpling). Margaret Magnus, after analysing the results of a test for sound-meaning correlation, came to the conclusion that phonemes may be meaning-bearing. For example, many words that contain /k/ quite often refer to containers (carton, box, crate, can, etc.), and words that contain a consonant /t/ followed by /p/ often relate to something that is off balance (topple, stoop, tipple, tipsy,etc.).
Phonosemantic studies were addressed from a different perspective in Russia. In the late 60s, Russian linguist Victor Levitsky started analysing the correlation between subjective symbolism (how the sounds affect the psyche) and objective symbolism (the connection between the sounds and the meaning of the words) and ended up obtaining results with regards to the international nature of subjective symbolism, finding out the correlation between the differential features of the phoneme and its meaning (e.g. “slow”- sonoric, fricative; “fast” – plosive, obstruent, etc.). In 1970-1980s Alexander Zhuravlev wrote the book Phonetic Meaning, which contains the results of the symbolic meaning of all the sounds of Russian language which were found using a psychometric method based on 25 distinctive-feature scales: big-small, good-bad, light-dark, etc. He proved that the word is an entity of meaning and sound, and developed the patterns which help to define the phonetic meaning of the word automatically, taking into account that the first sound of the word is 4 times more informative than the others and that the vowel under stress is two times more informative. Based on his results, an automatic system for defining the phonetic meaning of the words – Vaal project  – was developed. The Vaal project analyses the phonetic meaning of single words and even of texts, and is frequently used not only for some linguistic researches but also as a tool which helps to find the more attractive name for a company or product.

So all in all, the sounds we use to name objects are not wholly arbitrary and sometimes the phonetic shape of the word can add some value to its meaning. The raised interest towards this branch of linguistics and its important connections to literature, marketing and cultural affection prove that the phonosemantic side of language deserves to continue being studied.

Coming soon: The secrets of phonosemantics (part II), where Olga Smirnova will share the results of a phonosemantic experiment carried out with the staff of the Terminology Coordination Unit of the European Parliament.

Art & Science : vient de paraître "Y-fus-je ?" de M-W Debono & Patrica Proust-Labeyrie | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
La rencontre en 1994 de Marc-Williams Debono, poète et chercheur en neurosciences avec l’artiste plasticienne Patricia Proust-Labeyrie au premier congrès mondial de la transdisciplinarité à Setubal au Portugal, fût marquée peu de temps après par l’éclosion d’un projet art & science au sein du Groupe des Plasticiens, intitulé « Pensée comme matière : la plastique dans tous ses états ». Il s’agissait déjà de considérer le travail de la matière en fluidité de pensée et le lâcher-prise de l’esprit comme intimement liés. Exploration qui oriente et cristallise leur interaction. On retrouve dans «Y fus-je ? » cette éthologie de la pensée en action si caractéristique de la plasticité : là ou l’un, le poète, sculpte avec des mots, l’autre, tête chercheuse, fait émerger des formes. C’est l’écho réciproque d’une « argile » façonnée à quatre mains qui donne corps à ces mondes utopiques et tente de répondre à la question posée. description

One of the most universally applicable attractions of permaculture is that it is a practical set of design tools, based on directly observable effects and which can be used to create physical solutions to problems in the world. Indeed, co-conceptualiser of permaculture Bill Mollison famously pointed out that one of the reasons permaculture is so useful is that it involves actually applying what you are saying to what you are …

'Anumeric' people: What happens when a language has no words for numbers?

'Anumeric' people: What happens when a language has no words for numbers? | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
Numbers do not exist in all cultures. There are numberless hunter-gatherers embedded deep in Amazonia, living along branches of the world’s largest river tree. Instead of using words for precise quantities, these people rely exclusively on terms analogous to “a few” or “some.”

In contrast, our own lives are governed by numbers. As you read this, you are likely aware of what time it is, how old you are, your checking account balance, your weight and so on. The exact (and exacting) numbers we think with impact everything from our schedules to our self-esteem.

But, in a historical sense, numerically fixated people like us are the unusual ones. For the bulk of our species’ approximately 200,000-year lifespan, we had no means of precisely representing quantities. What’s more, the 7,000 or so languages that exist today vary dramatically in how they utilize numbers.

Speakers of anumeric, or numberless, languages offer a window into how the invention of numbers reshaped the human experience. In a new book, I explore the ways in which humans invented numbers, and how numbers subsequently played a critical role in other milestones, from the advent of agriculture to the genesis of writing.
