Paul Klee (German: [paʊ̯l ˈkleː]; 18 December 1879 – 29 June 1940) was a Swiss-German artist. His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism. Klee was a natural draftsman who experimented with and eventually deeply explored color theory, writing about it extensively; his lectures Writings on Form and Design Theory (Schriften zur Form und Gestaltungslehre), published in English as the Paul Klee Notebooks, are held to be as important for modern art as Leonardo da Vinci's A Treatise on Painting for the Renaissance. He and his colleague, Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, both taught at the Bauhaus school of art, design and architecture. His works reflect his dry humor and his sometimes childlike perspective, his personal moods and beliefs, and his musicality.

Being a beast machine | Anil Seth | TEDxSouthampton

What explains the experience of being a conscious self – of being you? Drawing on cutting-edge cognitive neuroscience and old ideas from psychology and control theory, Anil Seth describes how our conscious selves emerge from a fundamental biological drive to stay alive in an unpredictable world. Anil Seth is a Professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience at the University of Sussex and Co-Director (with Prof. Hugo Critchley) of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science. He is the Editor-in-Chief of Neuroscience of Consciousness (Oxford University Press), Editor and Co-Author of 30 Second Brain (Ivy Press, 2014), Consultant for Eye Benders (Ivy Press, 2013; winner of the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize 2014). Anil contributes regularly to a variety of media including the New Scientist, The Guardian, and the BBC and writes the popular blog NeuroBanter. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

What I love about language
Is what I love about fog:
What comes between us and things
Grants them shine.

威脅和多维度”理念(stereotype threat and multi-dimensional thinking)與漢字藝術的全球化:



人们對事物的認識均有各自的stereotype心理问题,stereotype猶如中国教育中常常讲的马克思主义矛盾学术,stereotype猶如矛盾的存在,其無處不在,也無時不有。漢字書法已經经历了近四千多年的历史,今天依然沒有大的發展與變革,此乃大國文化之焦慮。造成這種焦慮的原因除了來自體制的上層建築因素以外,另一個原因是書法研究者們被stereotype所局限。大數據時代的今天要打破这个局限,我說是以俯看萬物的視角,書法界會和你討論,今天需要繼承祖先的傳統明天我們的書法需要創新,究竟哪個角度最重要,抉擇的困難可能是煩惱,這就是一個不同的“維度(英文叫dimension)”思考問題所帶來的煩惱,和自由的維度思考成為對立面。維度的提升基於打破stereotype格局。學術創新的根本意義就是提升意識能量的自由度(the energy of consciousness freedom),有了自由度,即打破了stereotype,維度能量自然提升。一維(1D)是一條線,如何創新和打破stereotype,這一條線,怎麼也不會構成眾多的文字書法,兩條線即是二維,我們可以畫一個很美的圖形文字,二維 (2D)的美比一維的美有無窮多倍,三維(3D)的美感比二維又有多了無窮倍。因此得出一個結論,每多一維,即可多出無窮多倍的美。那麼如何用大數據理念去思考漢字書法的當下和未來的價值,這需要學者們以當代的多维度思考(multi-dimensional thinking)來探索漢字書法的未來性。我們假設一種情形,在漢字發明的數千年前,我們的祖先也許就看到了今人所發生的藝術風格與流派,這裡的藝術風格和流派,我具體指的是西方的當代藝術,如果有一天,有人論證了這個事實是真實的,那麼當代藝術之父即非東方的漢字書法莫屬。這個大謎底就留給世界的學術界去討論吧。人類最重要任務就是要破除這個stereotype的局限性帶來的一種限制,當我們脫離開時空層的那個問題的焦慮的時候,可以站在不同時空的角度看問題的時候,你會發現,什麼問題均不成為問題!我們堅持這種打破那些stereotype的格局和多維度的思考,書法文化才有出頭之日,才有可能被世界認可。"(自約翰 · 摩根語-世界中國學研究會首席執行會長

什么是stereotype threat

Stereotype threat is a situational predicament in which people are or feel themselves to be at risk of conforming to stereotypes about their social group. Since its introduction into the academic literature, stereotype threat has become one of the most widely studied topics in the field of social psychology.
