Tää on musta hyvä. Metzinger johtavia filosofeja tietoisuudentutkimuksessa, joka tekee paljon työtä empiiristen tieteiden harjoittajien kanssa (neurotieteilijöiden kai lähinnä). Minuuden kokemuksen ymmärtämisestä nykytieteessä. Buddhalaisittain tuo on aika ilmeinen asia, mutta uudet metaforat voivat auttaa saamaan paremmin otetta ilmiöstä.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZsDDseI5QI
Thomas Metzinger is a German philosopher. As of 2000 he holds the position of director of the theoretical philosophy group at the department of philosophy at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz and is an Adjunct Fellow at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies and on the advisory board of the Giordano Bruno Foundation.
In his talk Thomas analyses the concept of self and presents it as a process that can be tricked. Our self model comes from the ownership of our body and which can even sense phantom limbs. He will describe the self process by means of a set of experiments and examples that the audience can try themselves. These examples show that we can identify ourselves with a virtual avatar as in the famous movie.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
