“The Analysis of Beauty” by Disinformation – Blind Spots, Kinetic Depth Effects & Evolutionary Neuroscience

October 3, 2022

“The central nervous system is nature’s Sistine Chapel, but we have to bear in mind that the world our senses present to us – this office, my lab, our awareness of time – is a ramshackle construct which our brains have devised to let us get on with the job of maintaining ourselves and reproducing our species. What we see is a highly conventionalised picture, a simple tourist guide to a very strange city. We need to dismantle this ramshackle construct in order to grasp what’s really going on.”
J.G. Ballard, 1992
