Complementary schismogenesis

The first type of schismogenesis is best characterized by a class struggle, but is defined more broadly to include a range of other possible social phenomena. Given two groups of people, the interaction between them is such that a behavior X from one side elicits a behavior Y from the other side, The two behaviors complement one another, exemplified in the dominant-submissive behaviors of a class struggle. Furthermore, the behaviors may exaggerate one another, leading to a severe rift and possible conflict.

Technophilia – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Technophilia and technophobia are the two extremes of the relationship between technology and society. The technophobe fears or dislikes technology, often regarding some or all technology with fear. This may be as a consequences of fear of change, a prior catastrophic experience with technology or because it may lead to a process of dehumanization. The technophile sees most or all technology as positive, adopting technology enthusiastically, and seeing it as a means to potentially improve life and combat social problems.

Charles Csuri on artists and scientists

without comments

 It takes years of a highly disciplined education to become a
research scientist
. Many years of study and artistic production are
required to become an artist especially  one with an interest in
innovation
. It appears, if you want to say a scientist is an
artist,just redefine the problem. The process becomes the content or
meaning.
Let’s make the art object the algorithms or the information and
control systems which produce it. All of which becomes the artist’s
signature. This gives the scientist the opportunity to say “I am an
artist”. The scientist also can wear the mask of an art critic because
definitions  have been changed. Now complexity and great art can be
determined by linear logic.
