Like everyone I have watched all three Zeitgeist films (the last has been released very recently, you can watch it here if you have not done so yet). I cannot say that I agree with all, but I certainly agree with much. In particular, as it is often repeated, we must protect the Internet at all times. Protect the Internet against what? We...

I dont know if technology should be embraced by architecture. As a student-everything we are learning is on the computer. most of the buildings we create would not have been comprehended or very hard to figure out without computers.

A gorgeous statement from Quentin Meillassoux in After Finitude (p.48) - which I mostly agree with: "…we must understand that what distinguishes the philosopher from the non-philosopher in this matter is that only the former is capable of being astonished (in the strong sense) by the straightforwardly literal meaning of the ancestral...

I haven't been doing much else in my spare time besides watching and reading as much as I can about the situation in Cairo, but I do want to share a few quotes about a notion that resonates with me more deeply than most any: "horizon of immanence". This 'horizon' is the very worldspace, or clearing which affords us the opportunity to...

WASHINGTON -- NASA's Kepler mission has discovered its first Earth-size planet candidates and its first candidates in the habitable zone, a region where liquid water could exist on a planet's surface.

You use a metaphor to describe some concept. The metaphor isn’t the thing you describe - it’s just a tool that you use. But someone takes the metaphor, and runs with it, making arguments that are built entirely on metaphor, but which bear no relation to the real underlying concept. And they believe that whatever conclusions they draw from...
