Sensory Experience of Perception


this is the second sandbox page

 

 It is obvious to me that the cumulative and rapid acceleration ef urbanization and global warming are transforming our world in ways that are dreadful to contemplate.

In arguing about saving the environment, economics and greed trump science.

Aesthetics and the subjective appreciation of nature are an essential foundation in the argument for conservation.  

I have come to believe that aesthetics and the subjective appreciation of nature are an essential foundation in the argument for conservation.  

 that Steiner employed the phrase sensory experience of perception, which describes the act of perception as a neurological process. 

 

I hope this] leads to the original coinage of the phrase, and, ultimately, into the origins of this idea about the nature of perception.

Taking it in all at once is overwhelming, and nearly unbearable. I struggle to understand and describe it. The deceitfulness  and selfishness of the perps – there's no need to name them all – leaves me incredulous. Yes they are greedy, but how can they be so greedy that they willingly consign their descendants, people who will remember their names, to such a miserable fate?

 

One of the themes of The Rise of the West is the author's thesis of a connection between the superiority of weapons technology, logistics, and military tactics that developed parallel to the cultural evolution of the West, thereby enabling the West to achieve global hegemony. 

If it’s environmental collapse, it will be protracted and utterly miserable. If it’s war games, it will be immediate and acutely miserable. One or the other seems unavoidable – global warming or nuclear winter.

Notes for People Page

“Lene,” Arlene Washburn, Fourth grade teacher, family friend, friend and mentor. Lene, whom I had to call Miss Washburn when she was my fourth grade teacher, taught me to draw and paint, how to use water colors, how to learn. She also set an example for living, and dying.

Lene arranged for me to show my work to Madam Chouinard who encouraged me to apply to The Chouinard Art Institute  MFA program. I was not able to do so, but her endorsement reinforced my belief in my talent.

Benjamin B. Stout,  editor, Forests in the Here and Now, A Collection of writings of Hugh Miller Raup. 1981.

If we want to preserve and shepherd the earth's natural systems, we should know what we're talking about. This book is a serious interrogation of the validity of the concept of ecological climax, and how to manage and conserve natural systems. It calls into question an environmentalist justification for nature conservation.

I believe that Professor Raup's views may be, in some measure, influenced by his views on economics. Nonetheless, his calling into some of the assumptions about climax ecosystems is helpful.

I have come to believe that aesthetics and the subjective appreciation of nature are an essential foundation in the argument for conservation.
