    1. nature/culture framework in terms of the real and the sym-bolic.

      Perhaps unrelated, but I'm reminded here of a passage from Cormac McCarthy's The Crossing -- "The world has no name, he said. The names of the cerros and the sierras and the deserts exist only on maps. We name them that we do not lose our way. Yet it was because the way was lost to us already that we have made those names. The world cannot be lost. We are the ones. And it is because these names and these are our own naming that they cannot save us. That they cannot find for us the way again" (387).

      I like this quote because it makes explicit the real/symbolic distinction that we apply to nature, similar to Siegert's music example. The world simply exists, but we interact with it symbolically, assigning names and numbers to denote physical locations or geographic/geological features.

      This is what Edgar Orrin Klapp meant when he wrote in his 1986 Overload and Boredom: Essays on the Quality of Life in the Information Society that “meaning and interest are found mostly in the mid-range between extremes of redundancy and variety-these extremes being called, respectively, banality and noise” (). Redundancy is repetition of the same, which creates a condition of insufficient difference, while noise is the chaos of non-referentiality, or entropy. In a way, these extremes collapse into each other, in that both can be viewed “as a loss of potential … for a certain line of action at least” ().

      There is perhaps something of "the real" here, as well. Volker Woltersdorff (2012, 134) writes that: The law of increasing entropy is a concept of energy in the natural sciences that assumes the tendency of all systems to eventually reach their lowest level of energy. Organic systems therefore tend toward inertia … Freud identifies the death drive with entropy … within his theory, the economy of the death drive is to release tension."

      Adam Phillips clarifies the death drive: “People are not, Freud seems to be saying, the saboteurs of their own lives, acting against their own best interests; they are simply dying in their own fashion (to describe someone as self-destructive is to assume a knowledge of what is good for them, an omniscient knowledge of the ‘real’ logic of their lives)” (2000, 81, cf. 77).

    2. The real

      In Return of the Real the critic Hal Foster considers "the real" to be art and theory grounded in the materiality of actual bodies and social sites. (As opposed to the "art-as-text" model of the 70s and the "art-as-simulacrum" model of the 80s).

      In Rewiring the Real, Mark Taylor describes the thought of "god" and "the real" as synonymous. One vision of theism he is concerned with is that of Schleirmacher, Schiller, Schlegel, Hölderlin, and Novalis, through to Coleridge, Wordsworth, Emerson, Thoreau, and Stevens, where god becomes identified as the creative impulse immanent in the world. He is also concerned with the ontological thought of Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Freud, Poe, Melville, Blanchot, Jabès, and Derrida for whom the real is "wholly other, or, in Kierkegaard's words that continue to echo, 'infinitely and qualitatively different'" (4). In the latter tradition, Lacan, following most closely on Freud, is especially associated with the concept of the real. For him, the real is the state of nature from which we have been severed by our entrance into language. It erupts, however, whenever we are forced to confront the materiality of our existence, as with needs and drives, such as for hunger, sex, and sleep.

    1. The notion of temporal structuring views "real time" not as an inherent property of Internet­based activities, or an inevitable consequence of technol­ogy use, but as an enacted temporal structure, reflecting the decisions people have made about how they wish to structure their activities, both on or off the Internet. As an alternative to the idea of '·real time," Bennett and Wei II ( 1997) have suggested the notion of "real-enough time," proposing that people design their process and technology infrastructures to accommodate variable timing demands, which are contingent on task and context. We believe such "real-enough" temporal structures are important ar­eas of further empirical investigation, allowing us to move beyond the fixation on a singular, objective "real time" to recognize the opportunities people have to (re)shape the range of temporal structures that shape their lives.

    1. However, as Mark Poster points out, 'the new level of interconnectivity heightens the fragility of the social net­works. '·50 The source of control now undermines its execu­tion. For clock time to exist and thus to be measurable and controllable there has to be duration, an interval between two points in time. Without duration there is no before and after, no cause and effect, no stretch of time to be measured. The principles of instantaneity and simultaneity of action across space, as I have shown in chapter 3, are encountered in quantum physics; they have no place in the Newtonian world of causality and bodies in motion, the world chat we as embodied beings inhabit. The control of time that has reached the limit of compression has been shifted into a time world where notions of control are meaningless. More like the realm of myths and mysticism, the electronic world of interchangeable no-where and now-here requires knowledge and modes of being that are alien to the industrial way of life. Other modes of temporal existence, therefore, may hold some viral keys, their 'primitive' understanding of time point­ing not ro control but to more appropriate ways of being in the realm of insrantaneity.

      Adam argues that control of time is futile in an interconnected network where hyper-compression has effectively rendered duration/intervals of time as unmeasurable.

      If temporality cannot be "measured, fixed, regulated or controlled" (see timescapes image), then time cannot be controlled.

      Subsequently, we need other approaches to be "in the realm of instantaneity."

    2. the potential capacity of exterrirorial beings to be everywhere at once and nowhere in particular is inescapably tied to operators that are bounded by their embodied temporal limits of terrestrial existence and sequential information processing. The actual capacity for parallel absorption of knowledge, therefore, is hugely disap­pointing. Equally, the electronic capacity to be now-here and no-where has brought the body to a standstill.

      Adam's critique of transmission technologies allowing people to be "now-here and no-where" perhaps also helps unpacks some of the tensions for SBTF's global social coordination.

      Could this be some of the unconscious motive to use terms that situate volunteers with one another as they attempt to grapple with tempo-imposed friction points which work against "terrestrial existence" and "sequential information processing"?

    1. The Six Corners store, like more than 100 other Sears locations, is owned by Seritage Growth Properties, a real estate company controlled by Sears Holdings CEO Eddie Lampert. Seritage, which is publicly traded, has a market value nearly 10 times greater than Sears Holdings.

      Interesting to see the interaction between Sears Holdings and Seritage. The value is apparently all in the real estate.

    1. Raccomandazione 3.6g - Definire un modello di governance del dato e progettare automatismi organizzativi e tecnologici

      ogni applicativo gestionale in uso nelle Pubbliche Amministrazioni centrali e locali DEVE(!) fare uso di [API (Application Programming Interface)] (https://pianotriennale-ict.readthedocs.io/it/latest/search.html?check_keywords=yes&area=default&q=api) al fine di pubblicare, in modalità automatica, dati tematici aggiornati in tempo reale. Senza l'uso di API pubbliche (e documentate) non ci sarà mai un sistema di dati pubblici in formato aperto su cui poter fare riferimento per creare qualsiasi tipo di riuso costante ed utile alla società e per la nascita di nuove forme di economia. Senza API pubbliche continueranno ad esserci soltanto isolati esercizi di stile di qualche rara Pubblica Amministrazione (nel contesto nazionale) sensibile alla pubblicazione dei dati, soltanto perchè fortunatamente vede al suo interno del personale dirigente/dipendente sensibile culturalmente all'obbligo (non sanzionato in caso di non rispetto) della pubblicazione dei dati.

      Oggi (2018) l'uso delle API pubbliche nei software delle PA non va raccomandato, va imposto! Diversamente si continua a giocherellare come si fa per ora. Ma niente dati di qualità e su cui fare riferimento senza API pubbliche nei software della PA!

    1. Charity devoid of charity, that Envy who looked like nothing so much as a plate in some medical book, illustrating the compression of the glottis or uvula by a tumour in the tongue, or by the introduction of the operator's instrument, a Justice whose greyish and meanly regular features were the very same as those which adorned the faces of certain good and pious and slightly withered ladies of Combray whom I used to see at mass, many of whom had long been enrolled in the reserve forces of Injustice. But in later years I understood that the arresting strangeness, the special beauty of these frescoes lay in the great part played in each of them by its symbols, while the fact that these were depicted, not as symbols (for the thought symbolised was nowhere expressed), but as real things, actually felt or materially handled, added something more precise and more literal to their meaning, something more concrete and more striking to the lesson they imparted. And even in the case of the poor kitchen-maid, was not our attention incessantly drawn to her belly by the load which filled it; and in the same way, again, are not the thoughts of men and women in the agony of death often turned towards the practical, painful, obscure, internal, intestinal aspect, towards that 'seamy side' of death which is, as it happens, the side that death actually presents to them and forces them to feel, a side which far more closely resembles a crushing burden, a difficulty in breathing, a destroying thirst, than the abstract idea to which we are accustomed to give the name of Death?

      The real allegory:<br> An explanation of how the pregnant kitchen main represents charity not through some abstract ideals of what true charity is and looks like but through her living and showing what charity is constantly.

    1. Phil Devin Consultants Review - 6 måter å velge riktig eiendomsmegler på

      Å få service av en eiendomsmegler er sterkt fordelaktig for deg når du kjøper eller selger en bolig. Imidlertid er hver agent forskjellig fra hverandre og å finne den som passer best for dine behov, vil ikke være en veldig enkel oppgave, men bekymre deg ikke mer siden denne artikkelen laget av Phil Devin Consultants vil tjene som en guide for å lete etter den rette agent for deg.

      Å holde en pålitelig og god agent med deg, vil sikkert hjelpe deg med å oppnå de resultatene du søker. Det vil også være lettere for deg å forstå trinnene som er involvert i prosessen med kompetanse fra en agent, hvor han vil forklare alt for deg på den måten du lett kan forstå, og slik profesjonell kan ta vare på den tekniske, taktiske, og økonomiske aspekter inkludert i din eiendomsmegling innsats. Velg noen som er i stand til å håndtere inn og ut av boligmarkedet i ditt område også.

      Sørg for gode oppføringer

      Ved å søke etter riktig eiendomsmegler, gjør det til en vane å gjøre noen undersøkelser. Finn ut om agenten har et godt antall oppføringer i ditt nabolag, og om han også har vært involvert i ulike vellykkede eiendomsprosjekter fra mange kunder. Agenten må gi like muligheter og oppmerksomhet til alle sine klienter; ikke vær med noen som er veldig forutinntatt på hans beslutninger.

      Merk ærlige henvisninger

      Du kan få ærlige vurderinger og meninger fra personer du er i nærheten av som familiemedlemmer, venner og arbeidskamerater eller til og med fra nabo i mange år. Med sin tidligere erfaring fra en bestemt klient, er de klar over profesjonelle gode poeng og noen dårlige poeng også. Du bør bedre notere den typen informasjon og lage en liste over kandidatene som sannsynligvis vil bli din eiendomsmegler. Å ha disse notatene med deg kan hjelpe deg bedre å velge hvilken som er best for deg og dine eiendomsbehov.

      Hvis du for tiden har en pålitelig eiendomsmegler med deg, men du vil snart flytte til et nytt sted, kan det være litt av et problem siden du ikke vil kunne få sin tjeneste og kontakte ham lenger for din fremtidige eiendomsproblemer. Men Phil Devin Consultants vil ikke at du skal bekymre deg for mye om denne saken, så gruppen foreslår at du spør din nåværende eiendomsmegler for henvisninger i stedet. Flertallet av eiendomsmeglere har mange tilkoblinger og nettverk i bransjen, og det er derfor mulig at de også er kunnskapsrike om andre gode agenter på forskjellige områder.

      Lei en flyttespesialist

      Hvis du flytter til et fjernt sted uten å anta hvem du skal ansette som eiendomsmegler, så få bedre service av en flyttingsekspert. Du kan avhenge av spesialisten siden han har et stort nettverk med tilknytning til agenter også i en bestemt region eller et land. Han har også tilgang til agentens ytelses- og produksjonsrapporter, slik at han kan hjelpe deg med å finne agenten som passer best for dine behov og bekymringer.

      Lær om samfunnets lederskap

      Noen som også bryr seg om hans nabolag kan være en fordel for deg når du planlegger å selge en eiendom innenfor dette området i fremtiden. Det ville være en bonus hvis agenten har et godt fellesskapsledelse også. Annet enn resultatnumrene, inkludere dette på listen over dine krav til din potensielle eiendomsmegler. Lær om agentens engasjement i samfunnet og om han hadde deltatt i lokale skoler, stigende bedrifter eller veldedige organisasjoner, eller gjort noen investeringer.

      Finn de trekkene du foretrekker

      Du vil være den som skal håndtere eiendomsmegler, så sørg for at han har de egenskapene du personlig foretrekker med en profesjonell. Lag en liste over kvaliteter du leter etter i en god eiendomsmegler. Dine synspunkter og meninger kan være forskjellige fra andre, så samsvar med egenskapene til agenten med dine personlige krav for å sikre et komfortabelt og profesjonelt forhold til profesjonelle.

      Bekreft en oppdatert lisens

      Eiendomsmegler må ha en lisens som er oppdatert. Aldri signere en kontrakt med en agent uten å sjekke først troverdigheten til hans lisens. Du kan gå til eiendomsavdelingen nettsted av staten din for å bekrefte om lisensen er aktuell.

      Phil Devin Real Estate foreslår endelig å "stole på intuisjonen din, den ligger aldri." Stol på ditt første tarminstinkt, og hvis du føler at noe er galt med agenten, så ikke velg ham. Du bør ikke velge noen hvis du føler noen tvil om ham - uansett størrelsen på det. Å være i tvil er det første tegn på at du ikke er en kamp med agenten. "Vær forsiktig med hvem du stoler på. Salt og sukker er begge hvite. "

      Gemeenschap

      Kies iemand die ook Gemeenschaps leiderschap bezit. Het is inderdaad een plus factor als de agent sterk zorgt voor zijn of haar gemeenschap. Het zien van briljante prestaties nummers over een agent is goed, maar het zou leuk zijn om te zien dat hij of zij is ook toegewijd aan de Gemeenschap. Zoek uit of de agent geïnvesteerd in het gebied en was betrokken bij lokale scholen, het ontwikkelen van bedrijven, of liefdadigheidsinstellingen.

      Wenselijke kenmerken

      Welke goede kwaliteiten u van een agent in uw inspanning verwacht van het kopen van of het verkopen van een onroerende goederen? Je moet jezelf afvragen uw eigen definitie van een "goede makelaar". Uw mening zal anders zijn dan anderen, dus wat is geweldig voor hen misschien niet aan u, omdat het afhangt van uw eisen. U zou de agent met de kwaliteiten of de kenmerken moeten zoeken u persoonlijk zoekt. Heeft u liever iemand ethisch over iemand met een grote verkoopvolume?

    1. Miracles reawaken the awareness that the spirit, not the body, is the altar of truth.

      How many times you thought a heavy bank account will make you happy? How many times you thought the same about mercedes or career, romantic lover, fame or children and villa on a sheer? You might have also had some reveries that drinking alcohol will do or using drugs of any kind. Dig deep in this idea: what is it that you really want? If you look good enough you'll see the only reason why you're seeking all those things -- the joy is tied to them within your mind and it is joy indeed you really want. And yet, how many times your idols failed you? Weren't you shocked by the amount of side effects they bring? You thought a zillion coins will give you peace and happiness but what you've got is constant worry and distress. Is it not time for you stop chasing carrots but focus on your real goal instead?

      If you would look on anyone more closely to figure out their motivation and what exactly makes them tick, you'll be surprised to see that you are not the only one who's chasing happiness, it is at root for anyone indeed. There is no difference between a mother of a baby and user of some drug except in ways they're looking for it: the mother plans to get it from her baby the other - from the drug. Even the biggest tyrants you can name were doing what they've done only because they honestly believed: this is the way to joy. And so the universal goal is equal but everyone has a unique and special plan on how to get it, a map their very own. However if you have dared to lift this heavy brick of paper it means you are among of those who've started to suspect: your plan has failed.

      what you seek for is a source of joy as you conceive it. T-24.5.1

      It never is the idol that you want. But what you think it offers you T-30.3.4

      You must have noticed an outstanding characteristic of every end that the ego has accepted as its own. When you have achieved it, it has not satisfied you. T-8.8.2

      It is essential that you accept the fact, and accept it gladly, that there is no form of littleness that can ever content you. You are free to try as many as you wish, but all you will be doing is to delay your homecoming. T-15.3.2

      I will not value what is valueless. W-133

      The world I see holds nothing that I want. W-128

      Seek not outside yourself. For it will fail, and you will weep each time an idol falls. T-29.7.1

      Perceiving equality, the Holy Spirit perceives equal needs. This invites Atonement automatically, because Atonement is the one need in this world that is universal. T-6.2.5

      Accept the plan you did not make W-186.5

      Only God's plan for salvation will work. W-71

    1. An art I do not call it, but only an experience, because it is unable to explain or to give a reason of the nature of its own applications. And I do not call any irrational thing an art; but if you dispute my words, I am prepared to argue in defence of them.

      A pretty high bar Socrates is setting here. Is experience then not a "real" thing? Must all "real" things be able to be explained in a definite, rational way?
