Recommended background music: Brian Eno - Ambient 1: Music For Airports (6 Hour Time-stretched Version)

As in Part I we discussed the properties of movement that resembled the flow of Existence and thus defended its appropriate use for expressing and communicating, in Part II we focus on the subjectivity of the process of moving, the kind of spaces that it enables within one’s own consciousness, and the awareness shifts that it may provide. This part is about the contemplative windows that dancing or moving to one’s own present moment opens.

We should consider ourselves conditioned by our own perspective, and…

In this article, we are going to reflect on Movement, its omnipresence throughout the process of Meaning Creation and Communication, and why its Physical Embodiment can be a legitimate tool to express and understand what we perceive in an abundantly natural and integrated way.

It has been posed to us as a revolution, which has inevitably raised the thread flag on the grounds of the skeptical.

But there is no-one to blame, the digital was early presented in a rough and raw graphic shell. It was publicly portrayed as a fast-lane to the future but subconsciously meant a heavily…

This is a review of the Creative Horizons of Computational Systems. Can we build intelligent tools that are creative, help us be more creative or shed some light on the creative process itself? Let’s review the meaning of creativity and the ways through which the machine can be a helpful participant.
