Supplemental Memory

Notizen machen. Wiederholen. Geschichte. Schreiben.

Jonathan Swift’s A Letter of Advice to a Young Poet:

A commonplace book is what a provident poet cannot subsist without, for this proverbial reason, that ‘great wits have short memories:‘ and whereas, on the other hand, poets, being liars by profession, ought to have good memories; to reconcile these, a book of this sort, is in the nature of a supplemental memory, or a record of what occurs remarkable in every day’s reading or conversation. There you enter not only your own original thoughts, (which, a hundred to one, are few and insignificant) but such of other men as you think fit to make your own, by entering them there.

Potential Aktual Schubidal

Charakterliche Dispositionen und technologisches Potential. Was wählt wen? Das Repertoire der psychischen Systeme bietet an (sozusagen psychische preadaptive advances), Technologien bieten Andockflächen. Ins Leere fallen = Dispositionen deren Andockflächen obsolet werden. #Schichtenmobilität auf und ab.
Reflex der Zukunftsnegation (Szenarienunwahrscheinlichkeit) = aktive, wärmende, nährende Andockfläche. Deswegen Neues immer von den Rändern: Not macht Szenariensensibel.
