Cytaty, ostatni miesiąc (tu są wszystkie, większą czcionką)
… Examining the science and supernaturalism of Buddhism
… it is helpful and therapeutic
… practicing Vipassana, or “insight” meditation
… Buddha is conceived as a wise man and self-help psychologist, not as a divine being
… This nimble-footed doubleness may indeed hold profound existential truths
… The sitter becomes less selfish and more selfless.
… Buddhist doctrine and practice anticipate and affirm the “modular” view of the mind favored by much contemporary cognitive science. Instead of there being a single, consistent Cartesian self that monitors the world and makes decisions, we live in a kind of nineties-era Liberia of the mind, populated by warring independent armies implanted by evolution, representing themselves as a unified nation but unable to reconcile their differences, and, as one after another wins a brief battle for the capital, providing only the temporary illusion of control and decision.
… the fixed self is an illusion imprinted by experience
… Meditation .. is not a metaphysical route toward a higher plane.
… Whether or not evolutionary psychology is a real or a pseudoscience—opinions vary
… Christianity try to tiptoe past the doctrines of Heaven and Hell, so that Hell becomes “the experience of being unable to love,” or Heaven a state of “being one with God”
… why a scientific explanation of that kind has seldom arisen in Buddhist cultures.
… meditation practice—the draining away of the stories we tell compulsively about each moment in favor of simply having the moment
… Can any old faith point a new way forward?
… A faith practice with an authoritarian structure sooner or later becomes a horror; a faith practice without an authoritarian structure sooner or later becomes a hobby. /17-09-13
W Traktacie o malarstwie Leonardo da Vinci udziela młodemu
adeptowi sztuki malarskiej takiej oto rady:
… nie zawadzi zatrzymać się czasem, by obserwować plamy na murach albo popiół ogniska, albo chmury czy błoto, albo inne podobne rzeczy. Jeśli będziesz w nie patrzył, znajdziesz tam czarujące pomysły, pobudzające umysł malarza do nowych pomysłów, tak do kompozycji bitew, zwierząt, ludzi, jak do rozmaitych układów krajobrazu i rzeczy potwornych, jak diabły i tym podobne. Przysporzy ci to sławy. Albowiem rzeczy pogmatwane pobudzają umysł do nowych inwencji. /Jakub Jernajczyk Portrety przypadku/17-09-13
… THE human face is a remarkable piece of work.
… is crucial to the formation of complex societies.
… the face’s ability to send emotional signals
… In America facial recognition is used by churches to track worshippers’ attendance
… Apple’s new iPhone is expected to use it to unlock the homescreen
… Facebook’s bank of facial images cannot be scraped by others, but the Silicon Valley giant could obtain pictures of visitors to a car showroom, say,
… China’s government keeps a record of its citizens’ faces
… to track criminals, but at enormous potential cost to citizens’ privacy.
… one gay man, and one straight man, the algorithm could attribute their sexuality correctly 81% of the time. Humans managed only 61%
… If your partner can spot every suppressed yawn, and your boss every grimace of irritation, marriages and working relationships will be more truthful, but less harmonious.
… Relationships might become more rational, but also more transactional.
… Change is coming. Face up to it. /17-09-11
Cassini’s 13 years of stunning Saturn science
… in pictures
… Twenty years ago .. Florida morning
… 3.5-billion-kilometre journey and 13 years spent circling Saturn
… Geysers on Enceladus spray water vapour and ice mixed with organic molecules into space.
… Sunlight glints off lakes of liquid hydrocarbons on Titan.
… Saturn's 60-plus moons
… Just 100 metres or so thick, Saturn’s rings are shaped by many moons and moonlets embedded within.
… The moon Pan clears a pathway within the rings known as the Encke Gap.
… Thunderclouds barrelled across Saturn’s northern hemisphere in 2010–11.
… the mission will come to a close soon /Nature/17-09-02
universal basic income
… Adopting a universal basic income for all people can help society think creatively with new ideas, develop new industries — and free-up people to work on important future projects. This practical social support program can grow as science & technology rapidly evolve, becoming part of world abundance. .. Ray Kurzweil
… Mark Zuckerberg .. a renewed sense of purpose .. Our generation will have to deal with tens of millions of jobs replaced by automation like self-driving cars
… We’re all going to make mistakes, so we need a society that focuses less on locking us up or stigmatizing us.
… We are clearly headed toward a situation where everyone can live very well
… The fantastic price-performance gains we’ve seen in information technology is coming to physical products, food, energy /17-08-28
Odds for Lucky Mutations
… SOS response, a DNA repair mechanism that bacteria employ when their genomes are damaged, during which dozens of genes become active and the rate of mutation goes up. Those extra mutations are more often detrimental than beneficial, but they enable adaptations
… Is the upsurge in mutations merely a secondary consequence of a repair process inherently prone to error? Or, .. is the increase in the mutation rate itself an evolved adaptation
… harsh environments cause nonrandom mutations
… It has also been to find a plausible mechanism consistent with the rest of molecular biology that could make lucky mutations more likely.
… more mutation specifically in regions of the yeast genome where it could be most adaptive
… are mutations always random?
… variation in the number of gene copies might be a response to stresses or hazards in the environment
… purposefully adaptive response
… The small number of cells that did the right thing were at such an advantage that they were able to outcompete everything else
… They may also seem reminiscent of the outmoded, pre-Darwinian ideas of .. Lamarck
… mechanism that has arisen entirely through Darwinian selection of random mutations
… The Adaptive Mutation Debate
… they can adapt by elevating their mutation rate to promote genetic change.
… evolution can get speeded up
… chemotherapy-resistant cancers /17-08-28
Hackers Are the Real Obstacle for Self-Driving Vehicles
… adversarial machine learning
… Super-Smart Cyberattacks
… today Windows is one of the most secure operating systems
… autonomous vehicles rely on complex machine-learning algorithms that are not well understood
… face recognition algorithms could be defeated by wearing a pair of clear glasses with a funky pattern printed on their frames
… It will take only a few accidents to stop the deployment of driverless vehicles. /17-08-24
