The Great Acceleration: How the World is Getting Faster, Faster

During this revelatory learn of recent residing, Robert Colvile inspects a number of the ways that the velocity of existence in our society is expanding and examines the evolutionary technological know-how in the back of our quickly accelerating want for swap, in addition to why it's not going we'll be capable to decelerate . . . or maybe are looking to.

Evolution der Viererkette: Das Ballgewinnspiel

Mit der Viererkette wurde im Fußball eine neue Ära eingeleitet. In Synthese mit einem kompakten Mannschaftsverband wird Überzahl am Ball geschaffen und alle relevanten Pässe zum eigenen Tor zugestellt. Die logische Fortsetzung dieser Meilensteine der Fußballtaktik ist das Ballgewinnspiel. Durch geschickt organisierte Laufwege der Offensivspieler wird der Gegner in "Fallen" gelockt und ein Ballgewinn in seiner Tornähe erzwungen.

Page 22 G. J. " 6 If this is the case, it should be possible to trace a continuous path from the timeor absence of timein the world of the atom, to the time of inorganic matter, living organisms, and society. But contrary to popular misconceptions, no such path has ever been tracednor did anyone ever tell us why it is difficult or perhaps impossible to trace one, within the natural order of things. 3. The arguments leading up to it begin with the umwelt principle. Following von Uexküll's assertion that the umwelt of a species is its universe of reality, the human umwelt is identified with the completeness of human reality.

But it is possible to develop principles leading to improved understanding of physicaland biological and behavioralprocesses and then select any one of the innumerable, possible processes as the one favored for time keeping. The reasons for the selection may be pragmatic, aesthetic, or even ethical. As to the construction of a solid body or rigid rod, Herman Bondi has argued: Page 14 Not only do we know that, by using radar methods, all lengths can be measured in time, but in fact the size of our measuring rods is determined by atomic interactions which themselves are fully characterized in principle by atomic frequencies.

Think next of the fact that all nocturnal animals and all cave dwellers live primarily in tactile space. Insofar as tactile sensations do not diminish with distance as visual sensations do, the objects of tactile space do not grow smaller as they get further away. Instead, they suddenly vanish. The geometry of tactile space must be different from the geometry of the space of our experience, which is tactile and visual in its near field and visual in its far field. Likewise, time as tempo and time as duration will vary from Page 21 species to species depending on the species' complement of receptors, effectors, and rates of metabolism.
