Agetinuity - Stefano Russo

Agetinuity

"This book tries to explain how minds work. How can intelligence emerge from nonintelligence? To answer that, we'll show that you can build a mind from many little parts, each mindless by itself.
I'll call Society of Mind this scheme in which each mind is made of many smaller processes. These we'll call agents. Each mental agent by itself can only do some simple thing that needs no mind or thought at all. Yet when we join these agents in societies — in certain very special ways — this leads to true intelligence."

Potentia (Dynamis in greek) expresses the potential, the ability, the chance of an unrealized action. Aristotelian precepts also refer to Dynamis which means possibility. Potential is not only a mental concept, but it is the sense of being.

Perceptors: energetic conductors objects constantly in tension and in relation to other elements and the surrounding space. Objects which find the secret of integrity in equilibrium and in energetic transmission. Between archaic science and the future.

There is something in the brain which doesn’t distinguish the difference between us and others. Also the acknowledgement of emotions seems to lie on an ensenmble of neural circuits which, as different as they may seem, share that “mirror” characteristic already witnessed in the case of actions.

The suitcase as a symbol of travel, of departure and of change, but also of the desire to demolish that residual monumentalità still inbred in contemporary art.
