    1. When Zeno had thus spoken, Pythodorus, according to Antiphon's report of him, said, that he himself and Aristoteles and the whole company entreated Parmenides to give an example of the process. I cannot refuse, said Parmenides; and yet I feel rather like Ibycus, who, when in his old age, against his will, he fell in love, compared himself to an old racehorse, who was about to run in a chariot race, shaking with fear at the course he knew so well--this was his simile of himself. And I also experience a trembling when I remember through what an ocean of words I have to wade at my time of life. But I must indulge you, as Zeno says that I ought, and we are alone.

    1. L’herméneutique qui me paraît bien plus intéressante est celle qui, lorsqu’on se met à employer le terme de manière courante, désigne les travaux de ce milieu de savants alexandrins du IIIe siècle avant Jésus Christ : philologues, grammairiens, bibliothécaires, archivistes, cartographes, astronomes, qui associent la quête de significations à la recherche des manuscrits les plus fiables, la description des formes aux classements matériels des objets, les appareillages linguistiques à l’historicité des styles culturels, le calcul des astres aux mesures du monde. Le plus intéressant étant justement qu’il ne s’agit pas d’une relation entre un dieu, des prêtres ou devins et des humains en manque d’interprétation dans une relation nécessairement verticale, mais de tout un milieu de savants travaillant sur des objets différents d’une manière, pour ainsi dire, horizontale.

    1. but some one stole the copy; and therefore I had no choice whether it should be published or not; the motive, however, of writing, was not the ambition of an elder man, but the pugnacity of a young one.
    2. they came to Athens, as he said, at the great Panathenaea; the former was, at the time of his visit, about 65 years old, very white with age, but well favoured. Zeno was nearly 40 years of age, tall and fair to look upon; in the days of his youth he was reported to have been beloved by Parmenides. He said that they lodged with Pythodorus in the Ceramicus, outside the wall, whither Socrates, then a very young man, came to see them, and many others with him; they wanted to hear the writings of Zeno, which had been brought to Athens for the first time on the occasion of their visit.

      [...] Our argument is that bills, charters, declarations, and manifestos would have stronger imaginary force if they also derived their performative force from everyday acts through the Internet: how people uptake positions as citizens of cyberspace, how they respond to callings to participate in cyberspace, how they create openings for constituting themselves differently, how they struggle for and against closings, and how they make digital rights claims in or by performing digital acts.[85] They would also have more performative if not legal force if they arose from not only a universal commitment but also regional commitments to understanding how the figure of the citizen is being articulated differently in cyberspace and how this figure is essential for bringing the force of law into being. The most significant space for thinking about the politics of the Internet and the political subject it has given rise to—the digital citizen—is the space between the inscription of rights and their enactment.

      Hasta qué punto las criptodivisas y criptocontratos son una reiteración de este "yo, nosotros, ellos" y sus acuerdos a través de un algoritmo? La idea de inscribirse o excluirse son las únicas posibilidades. El resto de la política ocurre en repositorios de código y en "propuestas de mejora" técnicas.

    1. The results are sum-marized in Table 4. Of the 184 morphologically normal ovulesscored, 124 ovules were associated with a pollen tube at themicropylar end. By contrast, none of the 189 ovules without anormal female gametophyte had a pollen tube guided to themicropylar end. The morphology of 137 ovules could not beunambiguously scored in these flowers because these wereeither squashed too hard or were occluded by the surroundingopaque tissues; however, approximately half of these had somepollen tube association.

      Support for the findings can be found in table 4.

      67% of normal ovules were able to interact with a pollen tube.

      0% of the abnormal ovules interact with pollen tubes.
