Saccade

“A saccade (pronounced /səˈkɑːd/, sə-KAHD) is a fast movement of an eye, head or other part of an animal’s body or device. It can also be a fast shift in frequency of an emitted signal or other quick change. Saccades are quick, simultaneous movements of both eyes in the same direction. Initiated by eye fields in the frontal and parietal lobes of the brain, saccades serve as a mechanism for fixation, rapid eye movement and the fast phase of optokinetic nystagmus.”

Antinomy

“Antinomy (Greek αντι-, against, plus νομος, law) literally means the mutual incompatibility, real or apparent, of two laws. (…) The term acquired a special significance in the philosophy of Immanuel Kant (1724–1804), who used it to describe the equally rational but contradictory results of applying to the universe of pure thought the categories or criteria of reason proper to the universe of sensible perception or experience (phenomena).”

Una incorrecta descripción del mundo

“Desgraciadamente, tan pronto como empezamos a crecer somos adoctrinados por todos los medios posibles. A causa de la conceptualización, nuestras experiencias sensoriales nos informan con una incorrecta descripción del mundo. Cuando vemos una montaña no la vemos en su mismidad, sino que adherimos a ella toda clase de ideas, a veces puramente intelectuales, pero frecuentemente cargadas de emotividad. Cuando todo esto envuelve la montaña, esta se transforma en algo monstruoso. Ello es debido al propio adoctrinamiento de nuestra enseñanza «intelectual» y a nuestros intereses personales, ya sean individuales, políticos, sociales, económicos o religiosos. La imagen que así se configura es horrible, retorcida y tergiversada de todos los modos posibles. En lugar de vivir en un mundo presente a la Naturaleza Primaria en su desnudez, vivimos en un mundo artificial y «culturizado». Y lo peor es que no somos conscientes de ese hecho”.

Aichaku

“Aichaku is the Japanese term for the sense of attachment one can feel for an artifact. When written by its two kanji characters, you can see that the first character means “love” and the second one means “fit”. “Love-fit” describes a deeper kind of emotional attachment that a person can feel for an object. It is a kind of symbiotic love for an object that deserves affection not for what it does, but for what it is.”
