Les rêves, quand la science s'en empare | France Culture/Jacqueline Carroy | technoscience | Scoop.it

Au IVe siècle avant Jésus Christ, le philosophe chinois Tchouang-Tseu écrivait ceci : "Jadis, une nuit, je fus un papillon, voltigeant, content de son sort. Puis je m’éveillai étant Tchouang-Tseu. Qui suis-je en réalité ? Un papillon qui rêve qu’il est Tchouang-Tseu ou Tchouang-Tseu qui s’imagine qu’il fut un papillon ?"…

Nous sommes déjà des cyborgs

Nous sommes déjà des cyborgs | technoscience | Scoop.it

Si l’être humain est toujours fait de chair et d’os, la tentation d’augmenter ses capacités grâce à la technologie ne cesse de grandir. Les jeunes japonaises raffolent ainsi des gadgets développés par la société NeuroWear, qui permettent de relier des oreilles ou une queue de chat à leur cerveau. Prémices d’une révolution cybernétique qui surfe sur nos tentations régressives.

Les frontières du vivant |malgré les frontières, les cultures, les civilisations et les peuples se sont rencontrés, interfécondés, en un mot métissés

Les frontières du vivant |malgré les frontières, les cultures, les civilisations et les peuples se sont rencontrés, interfécondés, en un mot métissés | technoscience | Scoop.it
|TRIBUNE| Pour le biologiste Ali Saïb, la relation avec l'autre est aussi essentielle à la compréhension de l'humain que de la biologie...

"Au fil du temps et malgré les frontières, les cultures, les civilisations et les peuples se sont rencontrés, interfécondés, en un mot métissés. Frontières et contournements, deux mots qui rythment les sociétés humaines. Comme l'écrivait Jean-Pierre Vernant, « chaque humain doit assumer sa part d'Hestia et sa part d'Hermès » 2, ces deux divinités grecques qui symbolisent pour l'une le foyer domestique, la stabilité, le dedans, et pour l'autre les rencontres, les voyages, ce dehors souvent inquiétant."

(...)

Au contact de son environnement, par ses échanges, la cellule se construit et évolue: la cellule est en constante transformation sans pour autant se perdre. Elle transforme également le milieu dans lequel elle évolue. Altération réciproque, une vraie rencontre. Le milieu est partie constitutive de l'identité de la cellule.

Comprendre le vivant, c'est comprendre le fonctionnement des constituants de ces cellules et les interactions qui entrent en jeu entre constituants, entre cellules, entre organismes... Comprendre le vivant, c'est s'intéresser à la relation.
