Fabrication. Proven Techniques to Detect Deception. Lie. A lie is a false statement to a person or group made by another person or group who knows it is not the whole truth, intentionally.[1] Lies can be told for various reasons and with various amounts of success.


Types[edit] Bad faith[edit] As defined by Sartre, "bad faith" is lying to oneself. Specifically, it is failing to acknowledge one's own ability to act and determine one's possibilities, falling back on the determinations of the various historical and current totalisations which have produced one as if they relieved one of one's freedom to do so. Barefaced lie[edit] A barefaced (or bald-faced) lie is one that is obviously a lie to those hearing it. Big lie[edit] A lie which attempts to trick the victim into believing something major which will likely be contradicted by some information the victim already possesses, or by their common sense.

Sokal affair. The resultant academic and public quarrels concerned the scholarly merit of humanistic commentary about the physical sciences; the influence of postmodern philosophy on social disciplines in general; academic ethics, including whether Sokal was wrong to deceive the editors and readers of Social Text; and whether the journal had exercised appropriate intellectual rigor before publishing the pseudoscientific article.

Background[edit] In an interview on the NPR program All Things Considered, Sokal said he was inspired to submit the hoax article after reading Higher Superstition (1994), by Paul R. Gross and Norman Levitt. In their book, Gross and Levitt said that an anti-intellectual trend had swept university liberal arts departments (especially English departments), causing them to become dominated by a "trendy" branch of postmodernist deconstructionism.

Slavko Martinov (Filmmaker) PROPAGANDA - A NORTH KOREAN FILM. Fabricated photos. Floris Kaayk. Floris Kaayk (Tiel, 1982) is een Nederlandse animator en filmregisseur.

Floris Kaayk

Leven en werk[bewerken] Kaayk groeide op in Tiel als zoon van het kunstenaarsechtpaar Coen en Guusje Kaayk. Hij studeerde cum laude af aan de afdeling animatie van de Akademie voor Kunst en Vormgeving St. Joost in Breda en haalde een Master of Fine Arts aan het Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam. Hij is bekend geworden met zijn fictieve documentaires The Order Electrus en Metalosis Maligna. In 2011 kwam Floris Kaayk in het nieuws met de filmpjes in de sociale media en op het weblog van zijn alter ego Jarno Smeets. Kaayk woont in Den Haag.

Metalosis Maligna - An Extraordinary disease. Footwear - Gallery. Guerrilla ontology. Guerrilla ontology is a practice inspired by guerrilla warfare, described by Robert Anton Wilson as an ontological method of dealing with people with extremely fixed worldviews.

Guerrilla ontology

[citation needed] In The Illuminati Papers, Wilson defines guerrilla ontology as: "The basic technique of all my books. Ontology is the study of being; the guerrilla approach is to so mix the elements of each book that the reader must decide on each page 'How much of this is real and how much is a put-on? '" The use of guerrilla ontology is to present through mainstream media conflicting worldviews to dissuade the populace from ascertaining underlying realities. [citation needed] Lichtenberg figure.

The fractal discharge pattern is believed to extend down to the molecular level. Actual size: 3" × 3" × 2" (76 mm × 76 mm × 51 mm) Brownian tree. A Brownian tree example A Brownian tree is built with these steps: first, a "seed" is placed somewhere on the screen.

Then, a particle is placed in a random position of the screen, and moved randomly until it bumps against the seed. The particle is left there, and another particle is placed in a random position and moved until it bumps against the seed or any previous particle, and so on. A circular Brownian tree Growing Brownian tree. Diffusion-limited aggregation. A DLA cluster grown from a copper sulfate solution in an electrodeposition cell Diffusion-limited aggregation (DLA) is the process whereby particles undergoing a random walk due to Brownian motion cluster together to form aggregates of such particles.

This theory, proposed by T.A. Andy Lomas pictures. Aggregation These works come from a study of organic natural forms and their relationship to simple mathematical rules.

Andy Lomas pictures

Influenced by the work of D'Arcy Thompson, Alan Turing and Ernst Haeckel, they study how intricate forms of plant and coral like structures can be created by digital simulation of flow and deposition. The sculptural shapes are created by a process of accretion over time. They are gradually grown by simulating the paths of millions of particles randomly flowing in a field of forces. Over time they build on top of an initial simple seed surface to produce structures of immense complexity.
