Site e blog atualizados

15 Apr

Após um esforço que envolveu a empresa que hospeda o site (combr) e um amigo que me auxilia na manutenção do blog a versão do WordPress 5.7.1. foi atualizada, em breve algumas mudanças no design e ferramentas também serão modificados.

Como dissemos no início da manutenção, algumas mensagens estranhas iriam aparecer, mas decidimos manter o blog no ar provendo alguns conteúdos porque percebemos que o processo podia demorar um pouco.

Voltamos a postagem diária, exceto sábados e domingos, e agradecemos aqueles que nos leem e acompanham.


Chardin’s clearing

12 Mar

The word is in Heidegger’s philosophy, but studying German etymology we come to the word Lichtung, where the meaning is of a clearing in the forest, while Licht is the word for light, that is, to remove hidden things and unveil them so that the truth come up.

In Chardin it means looking at the Cosmos in its complexity and acquiring awareness of an immense and infinite universe in which Alpha (origin) and Omega (end) are present, but with the meaning of giving the complexity-consciousness the necessary light to understand the life process.

It starts with the Human Phenomenon and will be clearer in your book “The divine environment” where he talks about the inner life, not in the intimate sense, but in the sense of reconnecting it to God and to others.

Explaining better by reading Chardin: “In their effort towards mystical life, men often gave in to the illusion of brutally opposing spirit and flesh, body and soul, as if it were good and evil. from certain current expressions, this Manichaean tendency was never approved by the church… “(p. 117), but it is resistant and is always present in everyday religious discourse,. the purely economic and political views of religion led to this state.

For this reason Chardin will insist on an “interior” life, one capable of achieving divine designs within human realities, hence “the divine environment”.

But what is the divine means, is that permanent tension: “slowly accumulated between Humanity and God will reach the limits fixed by the possibilities of the World, and then it will be the end” (p. 177), we must hope not as a catastrophe or a great sign, but an ´outgoing´ for the world that is heading for a civilizational crisis, and to which we must collaborate that it passes, with all our Christian forces, of other religions or of “good faith”, without fear of the world,

The light came into the world, says the evangelist João (1,20-21), but those who do evil reject it, “But those who act according to the truth, approach the light, so that their actions are carried out. in God ”, and thus carry out our actions within the“ divine environment ”where everything is connected to the Cosmos.

The human future and unity

11 Mar

Several points of Teilhard Chardin’s thought coincide with the new theological currents that arise in the religious milieu, especially in the Catholic, but Chardin opened his spirit even more when he practically migrated to China, the environment and Eastern philosophy influenced him.

His originality is as much in the evolutionary synthesis of his vision, as in several aspects of a futuristic eschatology that covers the entire Cosmos and whose convergence he calls “Omega”, which is an individualized but not isolated force, different from authors who stop at criticism to the problem of contemporary individualism without understanding that individuation tends to this “Omega point” futuristic, evolution chases.

Some authors understand the Cristosphere as a recapitulation of everything, say some theologians, but the evolutionary process culminates like man, but it does not end with man, the universe, man and woman, the historical trajectory, everything responds to a path for the Parusia of the Lord, and it is inevitable and the highlight of a Christian eschatology, and to deny the end of everything is to deny the eschatological process or at least not fully understand it.

So says U. Zilles about Chardin: “It is the risen Christ, who incorporates the world and humanity into the Mystical Body, in the finish of the Total Christ”, so this means that the Earth and the Universe will be prepared for the Parusia of the Lord (or the return of Christ), in full eschatology.

As a force of individualized action Omega is not subject to time and space (current physics has already shown these concepts as not absolute), so properties such as autonomy, actuality, irreversibility and transcendence are not subject to temporal actions, but to Omega.

Chardin explains that the multiple ecological, physiological, psychological factors that bring living beings together, especially human beings, and that especially environmental, physical and spiritual conditions are extension and expression, at a level of complexity-consciousness energies that they can bring Omega closer together.

Let it be said in passing that everything is in the various passages of Jesus (approaching the humble, dialogue with public sinners and finally handing over to the hands of the bad religious and politicians of his time), what Chardin wants to say is even further, that if we understand complexity-awareness, we help humanity to make a leap in quality that brings us closer to the Omega point.

Chardin’s phenomenology is radical because Creation is the beginning of phenomena, and the divine always operates in it, present in the actions and laws that govern organisms and living beings: God is at birth and in growth and at the end of all things, […] It does not mix or be confused with the participatory that sustains, animates and connects.” (Rideu, p. 271).

Thus, looking at the phenomena of the universe is looking at greatness and human development. It is not by chance that scientists look for comets, stars and stars from all over the cosmos for signs of life and the origin of life. Creator.

A planetary tele-participation

14 Jan

This whole process excluded people and cultures, Edgar MorinTelecomunicacao and Anne B. Kern to analyze the emergence of Earth – Homeland, remember that the invasion of China by Japan in 1931 was ignored by Europe , the “Chaco War between Bolivia and Argentina (1932-1935) was another planet ” (p. 38 ) , and ” only after 1950 is that the Korean War , the Vietnam and ( with the generalization of television) the Middle East have become close. ” (p. 38) .

It is then that world events begin to seem that occur in our backyard , the authors cite Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas in 1963 , the arrival of Sadat to Jerusalem and his assassination in 1981 , the attack on the Pope in Rome , the assassination of Indira Gandhi and her son Rhajiv and murder of Mohammed Boudiaf the House of Culture of Anaba , and they add ” if only for the duration of a flash human emotion wells up to the point we take our clothes , our mite to international aid organizations to humanitarian missions.” (p. 39) .

It is only when people see is that the medical and food aid arrive , but when the authors wrote the book ( in 2000 ) said they still ” we felt for planetary flashes ” (p. 39), is now with videos and simultaneous photos can say the same ?

Tsunamis , hurricanes , floods seem to occur in distant places make us feel more part of the people so far away , and bring us the “feeling of belonging to the same community of destiny , now the Earth community ” (p. 39)

The authors finish Chapter 1 , despite the concern with “agonizing convulsions” claim that ” although there is not now a community of fate , there is still no common awareness of this Schicksalgemeinschaft . ” (P. 41 ) (in certain situations that communities share the destination : shipwrecked people trapped in a mine, etc. and it can now become a common feeling to the entire planet ) and here I include the noosphere, “the spirit” planetarium..

The authors also analyze the planetary identity (Chapter 2) and the problems of planetary distress (Chapter 3), but I’m optimistic I think it is possible now that we have a media mirror network , see the fact that we have to face and decide how it her pleasant creating a new nation – World´s peoples, cultures, biosphere and noosphere shared by all.


Post 1000 and new themes

02 Jan

Reached in late 2013, precisely on the last day of the year posting number 1000, Post1000although it is only a number had already thought of a new theme , although it is the same, but will flee more of the technical aspects to address the social and cultural aspects .

Around the blog is what we call philosophy and Noosphere, but could also be Culture and Theology, without confusing them with Ideology and Religiosity, yet each can assume this connotation in certain contexts .

In these four years of blog try to show the technological changes that occurred throughout the planet, from political news as the Arab spring and the moves in the network to gadgets that create new mechanisms of interaction and communication that take place worldwide and involve repositioning cultural and social conditions in the planet’s inhabitants .

Technology when it reaches a level of full penetration in culture, turns herself in culture, in this case the ciberizados devices, is what was called Cyberculture.

We now want these devices to reach what we call ” calm technology “, ie, their impact assimilated into the culture, discusses them and develop them within the objective and subjective being-in-the-world aspects, and the relationship with its existence .

But we could not fail to address the aspects of his essence , ie the being-as-being, which was called in philosophy ontology, already discussed several times here and what refers to a subjective , spiritual sphere layer surrounding the culture and existence , which is the noosphere , the sphere of noon (spirit, mind or cultural mentality).

Welcome to 2014 , walk together in our lifetime on this planet .



The Book Thief

31 Dec

I made the purpose of reading this book to a friend, housewife, who asked me who only read books Book “academic” and the result was surprising.

The beginning seemed to me that the story of Liesel Meminger although interestingly told by a friendly narrator , drew a morbid journey in which you insert a little thief of books , a fondness which Death to Liesel ‘s track from 1939 to 1943 .

Traits of a survivor are outlined : the Communist mother, persecuted by the Nazis , sends Liesel and her brother for the poor suburb of a German town where a couple is willing to adopt them for cash .

But the boy died on the way and is buried by a digger dropping a book in the snow , which will be the first of several that girl stealing over the years and this book will be the link to your family.

The adoptive father is a painter of wall debonair who teaches him to read , is Nazi period and many books are burned, but she steals the reading of the mayor or the city library.

This virtual – reality created around Hitler and the Second World War , the girl attends Death , with some perplexity of human violence , but manages to give a light and fun tone to the narrative in this harsh reality of lost childhood and the cruelty of the world war.

But the book has a curious dying and living , hence my inevitable connection to Heidegger and to the present day , with dark clouds hovering over the cultural and society .


Networks, yes we are talking about people

29 Nov

We did the two previous posts to do a quick analysis of what is , in my view,YouAreNotGadget the most profound and consistent critic of the Internet and Web, Jaron Lanier , co -founder of Wired and author of “You are not gadget”  (I start with the translation error em portuguese  Welcome to the future : a humanistic vision the future of technology) .

The center of criticism of Lanier can be found on page 92 , stating : “History attests that collectivist ideals can grow and become a large social scale ” , to then cite fascists and communists who began a small number of revolutionaries , ie , for it is what is happening with the digital world .

But networks have always existed in human history , and all the critics think that the network is a network tool on the Web (which is just a web application ) and not stop to think that networks are people , and that the global visibility through an electronic and digital , social media but this may have several tools : twitter , facebook and now Whatsapp is falling in love , at least the young.

Thus the network would be for him an oscillation between ciberfascistas and cibercomunistas , maybe both , but his real ideology appears to say that there is a ” ideology of violation ” referring to Wikipedia and open source , but slipped in authoritarian culture by stating : ” the multitude of free culture believes that human behavior can be modified only by involuntary means ” ( page 143 ) and then immediately shows its neoliberal belief ” they do not believe much in free agency or personhood , “where she was in the cultural industry ?

But leave your questions and more interesting questions for the end : “Is there a way to understand our story to explain what a word is and how one can know c’rebro a word ? (page 213 ) , ” there is a relationship between smell and language, this famous product of the human cerebral cortex ? ” and finally a key question ” in Chapter 2 , I argued that the following question may never be scientifically : the nature awareness ? “And states categorically : ” No experiment can demonstrate that consciousness exists “(p. 223 ) , that is the culture of objectivist author separating subject from object , almost to the point of denying (at least empirically ) the existence of consciousness , reply with two experiments which he himself proposes , the phrase :

The lngyagi ish onz coissa stranya . ( p. 218 )

Another is the experiment V. S. Ramachandran , a neuroscientist at the University of California at San Diego , called Experiment Rama, who is to decide what is kiki and yaws (page 224 ) using as a ” metaphor ” two figures , one spiny and one soft ( the words do not exist in most the known languages ​​) , is one of two figures puts thorns and other softer .

Would get better if he started the conversation poraí , needed to destroy the technology first and gives the impression of poor objectivity and subjectivity bad , and it’s tongue is what ?

Communication, Noosphere y Corpus Christi

30 May

The idea that the universe has a soul or a spirit, (noon – mind or soul), bring new thinking about the meaning of our being, thinking that the current philosophy already hosts, as in Morin:

“The noosphere is not only the means driver / messenger of human knowledge. Also produces the effect of a fog screen between the cultural world, which advances surrounded by clouds, and the world of life. Thus, we find a paradox largest ever faced: what makes us communicate is at the same time, which prevents us from communicating. “(MORIN, 2001).

In etymological terms, religion is what the “reconnection”, ie, that which impels us to communicate with each other in the Christian meaning, what leads us to “Love one another” and that is exactly what we relink the Noosphere, in Teilhard Chardin who coined this word, it is precisely this communication Love (the uppercase agape) we “reconnected” to the Other and the entire cosmos, which to him, a Catholic priest, is the cosmic Christ, his whole cosmic body connecting everyone and everything.

So all Being ontic and the universe are connected to the Supreme Being who is the Being in essence, and just this Being that impels us to communicate, to express this “rewiring” the Other and the Cosmos.

Dreams and visions of Juliana of Liège of Belgium (1193-1258) expressed his Paraco and future Pope Urban IV, who created the date of Corpus Christi, maybe worth rereading for an idea of ​​world-society for which society moves current through the fog, and a cosmos increasingly known and mysterious at the same time.

New blog design and Noosphere

20 May

 This posting is celebrating the launch of the new design of the blog and websiteNoosphere (the picture above  is digital art of Tatiana Plakhova).

 Just as there are the biosphere, developed over millions of years around the terrestrial sphere, according to Teilhard de Chardin, the man emerged as a single species in the biosphere on Earth, breathing in a atmosphere, but subject to a kingdom “neither more nor less than a “sphere” – the Noosphere (or sphere thinking) about coextensively imposed-on (but the more connected and homogeneous) the Biosphere “(Chardin, 1997, p. 102).

Chardin describes the development of the Noosphere in two phases one occupation Biosphere, extension or as he calls it, where “swells in the first half of the path (to the equator [he thinks the poles to the center]) … a very similar pace, proceeds historically the establishment of the Noosphere “(Chardin, 1997, p. 103), and only lately … appearing in the World is the first symptoms folding definitive and global mass thinking inside a hemispherical top … “(Chardin, 1997, p. 104) and says that the first phase had three distinct characteristics:” Settlement, Civilization, Individualization “(idem).

This movement of contraction, which he called “planetarization” in raises “a fear reflected essential element before a whole, apparently blind, whose immense layers bend over it as if to absorb much alive … as Life, after lead us by the hand into the light, it dropped back, exhausted? “(Chardin, 1997, p. 126).
“From this point of view … no room in the eyes that our fears of ‘dehumanization by planetarization’ are exaggerated, because that planetarization that both frightens us is no more (judging by its effects) that the authentic and direct continuation of the evolutionary process that historically came out type human zoo? (Chardin, 1997, p. 127).

Chardin reaffirms his certainty that the complex “economic, technical, scientific and social” … “Behaves like a body that radiates, irradiation being formed by a free energy, the nature and transformations must be the subject of a brief study” (Chardin, 1997, p. 130).
