  3. 3. How to explain Copenhagen to a comedian Memo to Eugene Mirman http://www.grist.org/article/2009-12-03-how-to-explain-copenhagen-to-a-comedian Photo illustration / iStock images Comedian Eugene Mirman is going to Copenhagen for Grist to cover the international climate talks. Eugene is a fairly well-informed guy (he at least scans Google News looking for reviews of his latest album), but he’s the first to admit that he doesn’t live, eat, and smoke climate policy. At his request, the Grist staff threw together a basic cheat sheet on Copenhagen.  It’s overly simplistic. It avoids lots of important details. It’s probably offensive. In short, it’s just enough to help Eugene feign cluefulness when he’s accosting world leaders in Denmark.

  8. 8. Whoever imagines mental deep permeable barriers which actually do not exist  and then thinks them away, has understood the world.  As space is entrapped in geometry's network of lines,  thought is caught in its (own) inherent laws.  Maps make the world comprehensible to us;  we are still waiting for the star-maps of the spirit.  In the same way than ambling through fields  we risk getting lost, the spirit negotiates its terrain.

Meadows, Jorgen Randers & William W. Behrens III, Potomac Associates, New York (1972) pls. see also The Club of Rome - The Predicament of Mankind, 1970 Subtitle of Fig 1: Although the perspectives of the world's people vary in space and time, every human concern falls somewhere on the space time graph. The majority of the world's people are concerned with matters that effect only family or friends over a short period of time. Others look far ahead in time or over a large area - a city or a nation. Only few people have a perspective that extends far into the future. * Later we can read in the book: that in contrast to the majorities focus in the quadrant in the lower left “box”, the book concerns itself with the upper right quadrant or “box”.
