Créée par James Talmage et Damon Maneice, cette carte apparaît comme un grand bouleversement de notre représentation du monde: depuis notre plus tendre enfance, nous avons en effet été accoutumés à utiliser des mappemondes obéissant à la Projection Mercator.

Time on the Brain: How You Are Always Living In the Past, and Other Quirks of Perception

This meeting, even more than FQXi’s previous efforts, was a mashup of different disciplines: fundamental physics, philosophy, neuroscience, complexity theory. Crossing academic disciplines may be overrated, as physicist-blogger Sabine Hossenfelder has pointed out, but it sure is fun. Like Sabine, I spend my days thinking about planets, dark matter, black holes—they have become mundane to me. But brains—now there’s something exotic. So I sat rapt during the neuroscientists’ talks as they described how our minds perceive the past, present, and future.

By choos­ing to attend to some­thing and focus on it, you cre­ate a per­sonal inter­ac­tion with it, which gives it per­sonal mean­ing, mak­ing it eas­ier to remember.
