Does it leave a bad taste in your mouth? When you hear that word, what does it make you think or feel? Evil, greedy and exorbitantly wealthy individuals seem to come to many people's minds. I don't blame them, just look at the numbers for U.S. compensation rates. In 1968, the Chairman of General Motors received compensation of $795,000, which...

At this stage, I believe, science and mathematics are the only ways of knowing. There are other ways. There is introspection to find and convey meaning. There are self-contained rules, as in gaming or computer programming, that can be made-up and learnt. Nevertheless, these ways of knowing are not concerned with empirical inquiry about the...

Eyeclipse: Open your eyes Most people, including ourselves, live in a world of relative ignorance. We are even comfortable with that ignorance, because it is all we know. When we first start facing truth, the process may be frightening, and many people run back to their old lives. But if you continue to seek truth, you will eventually be able...

Claiming that something can move faster than light is a good conversation-stopper in physics. People edge away from you in cocktail parties; friends never return phone calls. You just don't mess with Albert Einstein. So when I saw a press conference at the American Astronomical Society meeting this past January on faster-than-light phenomena in...

BBC News: Finland has become the first country in the world to make broadband a legal right for every citizen. From 1 July every Finn will have the right to access to a 1Mbps (megabit per second) broadband connection. Finland has vowed to connect everyone to a 100Mbps connection by 2015. In the UK the government has promised a minimum...

There are radical new patterns of power and response-ability emerging around the 21st century citizen. But we are also experiencing a strange kind of political impotence. We are powerful in new ways, yet often incapable of applying any kind of meaningful political force to the most crucial issues of our time ... I think there's a vital yet...

So people learned from the angels of God how to build bridges, and therefore, after fountains, the greatest blessing is to build a bridge and the greatest sin to interfere with one. - Ivo Andric Our first two topics in this 12 part series were Pattern Recognition and Environmental Scanning, both practices for enhancing the opportunity to create...

We recently discussed Pattern Recognition and the role it plays in understanding and decision making. The next topic in this 12 part series is pulled out of the Futures Thinking toolbox: ::Environmental Scanning:: Traditionally, environmental scanning is explained within a business context as a strategic approach to acquiring information...

Sensation and Forces "Not to reproduce what we can already see, but to make visible what we cannot" (Paul Klee) The task of art, in all its forms, is to capture forces. Deleuze and Guattari say that this, ultimately, is what makes art abstract - the "summoning" and making visible of otherwise imperceptible forces (Deleuze...

The Elements and Movements in Bacon's Paintings "There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportions" (Sir Francis Bacon) Deleuze distinguishes 3 pictorial elements in Bacon's paintings, which together constitute a highly precise system - the field that is the spatializing material structure, the...

Painting, Its Ways and Faces "The adventure of painting is that it is the eye alone that can attend to material existence or material presence [...]" (39). Deleuze relates to two definitions of painting - one by line and color, which is visual, and the other by trait and color-patch, which is manual. He then proceeds to...

A Short Introduction "If you don’t admire something, if you don’t love it, you have no reason to write a word about it".
