 Playing Go - Braille Alphabet - Cognition - Creativity - Intelligence / Choice
picture picture 28 Jul 2007 @ 15:01
I was intrigued by the recent article about computability of games - how homoludens is outmastered by the computer, when playing Chess, Backgammon, ... but not Go !
Why ? and what that means for cognition, imagination, and pattern-languages, but also to the Braille-Alphabet for us blind people in modern media and globalisation, and what I think can be done to add human capabilities to keep "in check" advanced full-text research research like from Google, and add the big picture of the context, the broader orientation or big picture. See Panopticon.  More >

 Panoptic - A word of yesterday and tomorrow ?
picture picture 23 Jul 2007 @ 08:37
Panoptic was the Word of Yesterday. Is it possible to have a comprehensive, coherent "all-seeing" from a high stand to see the context and have overview? As our society believes in specialisation and ignores the potentials of being both, specialist and generalist ways or constructions are shown to share positions, issues, and perspectives and their combination. The essay reviews the possibility of not only having single, a caleidoscop of images, but to agree upon a coherent unifying generalisation in order to find orientation and see and share contexts, overlaps, and common patterns, and proposes to study the combination of elements or signs forming the "whole" of "all" of panoptic endeavour.  More >

 Tällberg Forum 2007
28 Jun 2007 @ 15:22
The Tällberg Forum is a unique event on the level of Davos, World Social Forum, Summits, but very different in scale, quality, and results. This report is about the different design and outcomes and starts whith the requests in the opening event to find a new World-House and new Language to help us find ways to live together.
The openingevent: Forum keynote: HM Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan where she cited Martin Luther Kings Nobel Price lecture requesting a world-house. Setting the framework: Manfred Max-Neef, Rector, Universitad Austral, Chile  More >

 Which Worlds ? G8+5, G20, G77, G meta-networks, G people, ... or what?

100 years UIA Union of International Associations, 30 years Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential and some new "developments" in Brussels around Anthony Judge.
We ask: Union of International Associations or Union of Intelligent or Intelligible Associations? Union of Intelligent or Intelligible.

The International Symposium Nature, Space and the Sacred: TRANSDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES, an international, inaugural conference of the European Forum for the Study of Religion has brought together politicians and scholars from theology, architecture, geography, anthropology,... to discuss space and sacred spaces. My contribution was about metaphors & models for oikos & ecumene & ecodomy - spaces as fullness/emptyness/potential and tragic translation errors...

This is Heiner Benking's News Log, a private-public diary presenting events, symposia and happenings in Berlin and elsewhere - my farings, foci, issues and concerns.

PLEASE CONSIDER THIS PERSONAL BLOG an ARTISTIC and PERFORMATIVE MEDIA INTERVENTION !

The Log links to my work and interests and presents issues and special concern of maybe a very small group of "concerned, engaged generalist" - a Global Interest Group (GIG). This needs to be seen in contrast to the ubiquitous Specialized Interest Groups (SIGs), the "scientific" approach to organize subject areas and specialization and standardization and harmonization! of means, nomenclatures, and modes of thinking. My favorite stories in the WHOLENESS SEMINAR include:
BELA BANATHY: "GENESIS
OF GENERAL SYSTEMS THEORY"
and "IVAN HAVEL: Longing for Unified Knowledge" where a "specialist" runs into the founding session of the early foundations General Systems, mumbling "this is not my field" or where Ivan M. Havel expresses his search for other kinds of knowledge.
As a starter I also recommend to check my MINDPRINT site, where we add the need for HANDPRINTS and MINDPRINTS, as FOOTPRINTS are good to visualize and communicate numbers, densities or consumption per area, but are not sufficient to negotiate and "harmonize" across domains and communicate gains in different cultures, technologies, times,... in short: incompatible but relevant information and our work on dialog, peace, policy-making, and multi-modal, faceted issues and consequences.
What am I? This is a "well-packed" question for which I have not the or a single answer. Some called me an in-betweener, go-getter, facilitator, hub, marvel-hero, trim-tab, bricoleur, bricoleers??? - career designeer, .... Some even "hank" which I disliked or Story which I liked very much !!
I have no single answer as I feel we need to walk the talk and sing and dance Life ! in spectra and fields in multiple embodied spaces.
To nebulous an answer? I am sorry but I do not go for overclaims and oversimplifications, under-complex and over-simplistic approaches with clan-think mindsets about real issues in clear contexts!
