The 3 SEC Bronze Brain | Telegrafenberg Potsdam

January 2, 2017

In front of the Einstein Tower, set between the paving stones, is this tiny art piece by Volker März, the full title of which is “The 3 SEC Bronze Brain – Admonition To The Now – Monument To The Continuous Present”. The piece apparently refers to Ernst Pöppel’s scientific thesis according to which “the experience of continuity is based on an illusion. Continuity arises through the networking of contents, which in each case are represented in a time window of three seconds. We reconstruct temporal continuity based on what is represented in the individual islands of consciousness”.

        Brilliant discovery – now it became a must (especially since it´s not so far away from Berlin)! 🙂 A lovely weekend!
