Here’s an anti-resonance phenomenon for you: the uncanny valley. The creepiness is an error signal for a process that tries to see itself. That’s why the mirror system is so bloody important. WHen it works, its a resonance phenomenon. You can practically see it in the fMRI images, pulsing, as it strives to ‘recognize’ itself. That recognition is a reverberation.
I’m watching an amazing documentary on North Korea (Part 1, find Part 2 yerself….). When Kim Jong Il dies, the world is going to have a hell of a problem on its hands. The form of collective being is different there. It is telling that words I am highly suspicious of, such as “belief” and “emotion” seem to mean something very different in that context. The partitioning of experience into things like “perception” and “emotion” is just a cultural convenience. This is memes ganging up in a slightly different way. The individual really is a unit that is up for grabs. And we need to understand the resonant properties of nervous systems if we are to get a hold on the different stable forms of P-world co-existence.
