Digital Colonialism

“One can resist the invasion of armies; one cannot resist the invasion of ideas.” Victor Hugo

“I chose to come here of my own accord and to answer these questions about how a liberal, gay twenty-four-year-old Canadian found himself part of a British military contractor developing psychological warfare tools for the American alt-right.” Thus begins a Christopher Wylie’s fascinating book! “Fresh out of university, I had taken a job at a [...]

“Full of sound and fury signifying nothing” (William Shakespeare)

The limits of human cognition, and especially mysterianism. That is, the unknown.

It is no coincidence that we have returned to Noam Chomsky’s book, What Kind of Creatures Are We? The trigger? Not only reality, but also a relatively recent article in which Idan Lando, who translated the book into Hebrew, interviews Noam Chomsky.

In the ninth decade of his life, Noam Chomsky wrote What Kind of Creatures Are We? as an attempted synthesis between various scientific theories and philosophical conceptions. The result is fascinating. From the height of interdisciplinary knowledge, Chomsky reaches the point where question marks stop us, as human beings, from seeing “beyond.” Noam Chomsky is [...]

Every Day has the Potential to Surprise

The impressive female images of Moufouli Bello, the expression of their inner presence, create a mesmerizing dialogue.

And the colors? Striking!

Sometimes we are captivated. That is what happened to me when I first saw paintings by Moufouli Bello, an artist from Cotonou, Benin, a small country in west Africa. After studying law, out of commitment to the social rights of the local population, she decided to dedicate herself to her great passion, painting. To painting, she has added other [...]

“You can’t enter the same river twice” as a thought anchor.

The statement attributed to Herclitus – “Everything flows. You cannot enter the same river twice. It will not be the same river and not the same person” – can serve as an anchor for our thinking.

Because no moment resembles any of its predecessors, and because everything is the result of circumstantiality, future circumstance can only be assumed. The ancient Chinese concept of Taoism, which emphasizes the way, is likely the most accurate perspective for us as human beings. Seeing the path as a riddle that might, at any moment, reveal [...]
