Interview with Envision This where Heather Marsh author of Binding Chaos discusses her political theory of self governance and mass collaboration and explains Stigmergy.
"Our minds are perfectly developed for accepting chaotic input and creating meaningful packets of information from them. We extrapolate from whatever else our experience has told us and interpret according to what appears to fit and seems likely to work. We are wrong a huge amount of the time, but when it doesn’t work then we iterate and learn. We keep developing new models until something works for us."

David is interviewing David Allen, the author of the best-seller "Getting Things Done". He gives advices for achieving a more productive and creative level of operation. He explains that you have to figure out who you are about. He believes that what you think affects your feelings. Unfortunately your mind is for having ideas, not for holding them, so you have to shut up your mind. How? by questionning yourself: what would you do if you had nothing in your mind? Then get a clear space in your mind to see higher, to see a bigger horizon, access that and to focus on that and be inspired. In other words, he says that you have to identify the noise in your mind, know what do those mean to you, then decide what is the next action and finally park your decisions in appropriate places.
Welcome to the second lecture of my BYU 2020 creative writing class. As you probably surmised from the title of the video, I focus on writing science fiction and fantasy.

Speaker: Tim Ingold
Description: Tim Ingold’s wide-ranging studies encourage us to re-appreciate alternative knowledge or, put differently, things our bodies know but we do not always act upon, such as acquired skills, sudden reflexes and marked intuition. With a focus on alternative ways to find knowledge, Ingold offers imaginative workshop tutorials that include weaving baskets and flying kites with students. Tim Ingold’s writings cover themes as far apart as humans and animals, sensing, education, skill, perception, making, materials and becoming. His most recent book, The Life of Lines, is a wonderful example of his achievements and a poetic narrative that interlaces bodies, minds, landscapes, topographies and perceptions through a correspondence of lines.
Training the Senses: We tend to think of knowledge as school-taught, language-based and to a large extent visually acquired - through reading, viewing and insight. Yet we also know that our bodies are reservoirs of other forms of knowledge acquired through a collaboration of multiple senses: hearing, taste, smell and touch. We use our hands and noses to select fruit at the market. We smell to find a suitable mate, listen to sense danger and intuit to gauge the insecurity of others. The senses also provide information we are not always aware …

Psalters containing the 150 Psalms were immensely popular medieval manuscripts, used by a wide array of patrons for liturgical, scholastic and devotional purposes. This lecture explores how the Psalms inspired a rich tradition of literal, historical and interpretative illustration, from the 9th to the 14th centuries, across Europe.
The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/illuminated-psalter-manuscripts
Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. http://www.gresham.ac.uk
