40 Times People Experienced Pareidolia And Captured It For Everyone To See (New Pics) "Pareidolia illustrates the interaction between the visual cortex and the frontal cortex of the human brain.

She points to football fan violence and the role that team songs can play in that, for instance. “Music can create a feeling of group cohesion and agreement,” she says. “When people do things together they are more likely to agree with each other too. This leads to something called groupthink, where there can be a deterioration in moral judgement.” Pretentious Is Not A Sexual Orientation. Future - The benefits of having a babyface. The Theory Generation. If you studied the liberal arts in an American college anytime after 1980, you were likely exposed to what is universally called Theory.
Perhaps you still possess some recognizable talismans: that copy of The Foucault Reader, with the master’s bald head and piercing eyes emblematic of pure intellection; A Thousand Plateaus with its Escher-lite line-drawing promising the thrills of disorientation; the stark, sickly-gray spine of Adorno’s Negative Dialectics; a stack of little Semiotext(e) volumes bought over time from the now-defunct video rental place.
Maybe they still carry a faint whiff of rebellion or awakening, or (at least) late-adolescent disaffection. Maybe they evoke shame (for having lost touch with them, or having never really read them); maybe they evoke disdain (for their preciousness, or their inability to solve tedious adult dilemmas); maybe they’re mute. But chances are that, of those studies, they are what remain. “What on earth have you got in that backpack?” Why Spice Is a Staple of Science Fiction. Have you heard? The maths of rumour spreading. "A rumour without a leg to stand on will get around some other way.
" - John Tudor How fast and wide does gossip spread? Rumours are everywhere. They circulate around schools, lie at the heart of political campaigns and — at their worst — can leave people fatally misinformed. In the age of social media it has become even easier for gossip to spread, often in the form of what's trending. Amongst other things, this has led to countless death hoaxes that in their time have concerned almost every known celebrity at least once. Paranormalizing the Popular through the Tibetan Tulpa: Or what the next Dalai Lama, the X Files and Affect Theory (might) have in common. What’s the newest and weirdest sub-culture on the Internet, you ask?

W. Leadbeater (1901) Thought-Forms. London: The Theosophical Publishing House. Introduction This article presents a summary and discussion of key findings from ten months of experimental cyberethnography among tulpamancers. Studying Tulpas and their hosts is fascinating on many counts, not least because it provides an opportunity to observe an emerging culture and the mediation of new kinds of persons – in this case, that of multiple humanoid and non-human persons ‘hosted’ in single bodies and a large-scale sociocultural matrix of ‘healing’ generated without physical interaction between members. My investigation is grounded in the study of interactions between environment, cognition, and culture. The Internet's Newest Subculture Is All About Creating Imaginary Friends. Kitsune, a tulpa hosted by Maciej from Wroclaw, Poland Kitsune was a mercurial orb hovering above a marble obelisk.

Data & Society. The Art of Google Books. Warner Bros. signs AI startup that claims to predict film success. Storied film company Warner Bros. has signed a deal with Cinelytic, an LA startup that uses machine learning to predict film success.
A story from The Hollywood Reporter claims that Warner Bros. will use Cinelytic’s algorithms “to guide decision-making at the greenlight stage,” but a source at the studio told The Verge that the software would only be used to help with marketing and distribution decisions made by Warner Bros. Pictures International. In an interview with THR, Cinelytic’s CEO Tobias Queisser stressed that AI was only an assistive tool. “Artificial intelligence sounds scary. But right now, an AI cannot make any creative decisions,” Queisser told the publication. The Death of “the Death of” - 3:AM Magazine. By Jared Marcel Pollen. Literature in the mainstream might be dead, but so is the mainstream itself. Postmodernism, as has been rightly pointed out, is not a movement, a genre, a style, or anything else that can be formalized; it has no manifesto, no coherent creeds or tenets; only a loose association of tropes that have been exploited ad nauseam (irony, self-consciousness, recursion, epistemic contradictions).
Like it or not (despite claims about New Sincerity, or the Post-Postmodern) our age is still a thoroughly postmodern one, and it’s hard to conceive of a time when it won’t be. This is conditioned partly by the belief that things are coming to an end. Or, that things have already ended––the finish line has already been crossed and we’re simply running around the track because we have nowhere else to go. For decades now, essays spelling “the death of…” have become a cottage industry, almost a subgenre within the critical essay. What is camp?

Make sure you are alone, or you know that no one will interrupt you, as you have to slip into a very relaxed state of consciousness, where any physical interruption may affect you much deeper.
Choose maybe an evening, not a special time, but maybe after work, when you are perhaps already a bit tired physical and mentally. Again, watch your face, relax yourself by a calming suggestion such as, "I'm in peace within myself, I simply watch my face to calm and find peace in me". Don't move with your sight or blink your eyes, because it's necessary to allow your attention to move away from your physical eyes toward your inner eye.
Choose a point on your face you focus, and don't change it anymore. The warmth is energy, which you attract by refocusing your attention.
