In an interview with Sunday Times : "A Beautiful Mind", Nataša explains her unusual use of the word "mindfulness", she calls it "#European #mindfulness".

Q. You explore the Age of Enlightenment, and ‘Western’ ancient Greek philosophers. Can you talk about your use of the Eastern concept of ‘mindfulness’ in this context? A: "There are a number of ‘instant happiness’ gurus out there, I do not believe in a ‘get rich in a day’ message, but I do believe that if we learn how to listen to our soul, we will be able to live our highest potential. We live in a rapidly changing world. When I was born in Belgrade in 1968, at the time of no TV or internet, the population on the planet was three billion. Now they say it is seven billion. The changes I have seen during my lifetime are huge. Emotionally, mentally and physically, we have to adopt different behavior patterns, not just to survive, but to thrive without abusing other social groups or animals or endangering planet Earth. The next stage, the stage of cultural life, is beyond the knowledge of more than 90 per cent of the population. Having a percentage of the population that neither collects objects nor watches TV, nor reads newspapers, that is still capable of thinking, un-hypnotized, to appreciate art, or dance or sing, and is able to think creatively, is a part of my research fascination."

The growing breach between the rich and poor countries has not been met with the response of an equivalent flow of international solidarity. Global ecological and economic interdependence requires effective international cooperation for appropriate management. The inadequate cooperation of all countries is responsible for the continuing rivalries and inequities in the global economic and social system. Using AoL Mindfulness as a process, a philosophy and a methodological framework for the realization of collaborative and sustainable projects, we facilitate diversity, creativity and team-work around the Globe. The idea is to enlighten collective intelligence and unleash our creative genius working with many transformative projects and organisations across the world...

 

Why European Mindfulness?

"Variety of religious and spiritual movements, such as Yoga, or the New Thought use “mindfulness” for spiritual growth and development. Such an ancient concept in Europe, an innate quality known in Ancient Greece as “Pure Reason” or with Egyptians as “heart-mind” or “Intelligence of the Heart” going back to Ancient Egyptian Babylon’s philosophy, or Ancient Greek Plato’s Soul’s Eye that is purified “for it is by it alone that we contemplate the truth.”, the naming of God’s idea of Pythagoras Music of the Spheres., the mystical practices of Balkan’s Slavs, or Ancient Maltese or Cyprus, or Olimp temple worshipping rituals."

 

In her NET TV Interview Nataša Pantović explains how from the point of view of psychology, meditation induces altered states of consciousness.

Zapowiedź: PocketBook Touch HD 3 jako pierwszy otrzyma obsługę PILOTA do zmiany stron

PocketBook testuje obecnie w swoich czytnikach oprogramowanie wewnętrzne oznaczone numerem 6.5 w wersji beta. Według mojego rozeznania, trwają zaawansowane testy w przypadku m.in. InkPada 3 Pro. Jednak przedstawiciel firmy PocketBook przekazał ostatnio na jednym z forów ciekawą informację na temat tego, czego się możemy spodziewać wraz ze spodziewaną aktualizacją dla PocketBooka Touch HD 3. Otóż pochwalił się, że „Blootooth-Fernbedienung wird ab der Version 6.5 zuerst bei Touch HD 3, dann auf weiteren Geräten unterstützt”. W wolnym tłumaczeniu oznacza to wprowadzenie obsługi zdalnego pilota łączącego się z czytnikiem przez Bluetooth i służącego do zmiany stron. Tego typu funkcjonalność otrzyma najpierw ten właśnie model, a później także inne, zapewne raczej nowsze PocketBooki. Na razie nic nie wiadomo na temat wprowadzenia na rynek firmowego pilota zmiany stron.

Tego typu rozwiązania nie są czymś niezwykłym w świecie czytników, choć wciąż to bardzo rzadko spotykane udogodnienie. Sam kiedyś szukałem podobnego pilota dla osoby mającej problem z utrzymaniem czytnika w ręku. Niewielki pilot, który umożliwia zdalną zmianę stron może być ciekawym dodatkiem, szczególnie dla takich właśnie osób. Dwa lata temu pisałem nawet o koreańskich czytnikach Crema, gdzie od kilku lat pilot jest standardowym akcesorium (więcej w tekście „Crema Carta G – nowy KOREAŃSKI czytnik z fizycznymi przyciskami i PILOTEM”). Podobny dodatek ma w ofercie także Onyx Books (w cenie ok. 26 USD). Koreańskie czytniki są u nas nieosiągalne, ale PocketBooki i owszem. Moim zdaniem taki pilot to fajny pomysł! Czekam więc z niecierpliwością na pojawienie się możliwości zdalnej zmiany stron. Ciekaw jestem, czy w praktyce mi się to sprawdzi.

 

P.S.

Czytniki marki można kupić np. w Amazonie. Więcej szczegółów we wpisie "Czytniki PocketBook trochę TANIEJ w Amazonie niż u konkurencji".

History Repeats Itself

Learnings from Plato's RepublicArtEducationPower of Mind

 

History repeats itself and Plato about Arts

History repeats itself. And people forget about history. There is no easy fix. It is easy to think that wars are in the past, that society has changed and it will never happen again. As memory fades, Gaia’s events from the past can become events of the present. The more things change, the more they stay the same. What we are seeing is that ‘digital’ acts as a magnifier, and accelerator. The problem is still the same. The isolation of East and West, North and South. Wealth inequality is a social and civic conversations that is not new but that has been catalysed through digital media.

Plato in the Republic rejects any form of illusionism in art. He calls it mimesis or ‘imitation’. This has also created a question what is the Greek word “mimesis”? And why does this matter?

What we have not full knowledge of, we cannot reproduce. Presumably this is the reason why all the monotheistic religions (Protestant Christianity, Islam, Judaism) had an explicit problem with art and artists trying to imitate the knowledge of , its image, his son, soul, Universe, etc. The imitation occurs in many instances, when an artist uses a portrait of a dead person to recreate his-own interpretation of the person. But Plato goes beyond it.

 

 

Art and Manipulation

Only through the direct observation one can exercise an ability to learn, observing the reality through the eyes of others, through movies, cartoons, or even just through reading books can become dangerous and manipulated.

Etruscans Language Culture Origin https://artof4elements.com/entry/etruscans-language-culture-origin

Learnings from Cyrillic Alphabet

 

 

History is a fascinating subject. Researching  or  even more so! We read amazing accounts about ancient  traditions such as Platonism, Orphism, Orthodox Christianity, and in China Taoism, and neo-Confucianism.

 

Etruscans origins

by Nataša Pantović

The Big Dipper Ancient Symbol Sky 6 Cycles

The insights from these traditions intersect with recent findings in metaphysics or biology. What brings the two into resonance is their mutual commitment to speak of the matter as alive. The four elements expressed through trinity that are defined by entangled triangle of relationships reflected in our language development.

Another visit to Serbia, this summer, and I was back researching the same scientific question, same puzzle that has certainly no answers yet it is an interesting exploration.

Were Slavs in Balkan as early as 431 BC? 

The genetic origins of Etruscans are mixed between aboriginal people of the region (Slavs?) and people from Europe predominantly Spain. The aboriginal population may have settled in Balkan millennia prior to the invasion.

Etruscan history 

The Etruscans occupied the region to the north of Rome, The Romans were their conquerors. 

The Greek historian Herodotus tells us that the Etruscans came from Lydia. Sure enough historians argue who are the Lydians. Herodotus tells us of their ships and multitude, claiming that the half of the population left under the leadership of Tyrrhenus. Another Greek historian, Dionysius of Halicarnassus, in his Early History of Rome also claims that the Etruscan were the aboriginal inhabitants of their area. Slavs?

 

The literature on the question of Etruscan origins divides into

1. Northern Origins

2. Oriental (Near-eastern) Origins

The aboriginal peoples of North Italy could have been Slavs. The Adriatic Sea, the sea to the east of Italy, bordering Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro, all Slavic states, was named after the Etruscan port of Adria. The funerary practices of the people of North Italy has the parallel to the Vinča Culture. The Etruscans cremated their dead, a practice also known in the Danube Culture, no grave yards have been found near the settlements for thousands of years.

This very vibrant culture hosted different nationalities. In the Etruscan ruins there are objects from Greece, North Africa, and southern France. The Etruscan traders brought those craft objects to Etruria. The major exports of Etruria was copper and iron from the local mines, the same found with their Northern neighbors.

The affinities of the art and symbols found in the area resonate with spirals...

Etruscan and Linguistic Research

The question became more intriguing when, in the nineteenth century, it was discovered that most of the languages of Europe belonged to one big language family called Indo-European but Etruscan was not one of them. Is this rightly so?

The linguist claim that Etruscan was not a member of the Indo-European language family was challenged by some Slavic archelogy and linguistic researchers. These Balkan Slavs, find the inspiring relationship between words, just introducing the now, in scientific circles, lost Š, Đ, Č, Ć, Ž, DŽ.

A book that I have recently explored was The development of Etruscans Language from Svetislav Bilbija, his self-created dictionary of words with the alternative history of Slavs, claiming that Etruscans and Slavs were of the same ethnicity, 1984 New York print. He calls them “Rašani“.
