Somatic Marker Hypothesis

A feeling truly, from out of this world. The uniqueness of this experience makes it memorable, yet so do the repeatable events we experience every day. Meaning is the differentiator, mnemonics tell the story.

Somatic Marker Hypothesis

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.

- Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)

Somatic Marker Hypothesis

Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)'s quote, "Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.". The titled responsion is...

I wrote this into the Will Freeman book, Will was standing facing the Eclipse, the moon didn't appear (from my geodesic coordinate, relative to the Eclipse) large enough to darken the sky and cast it's transient shadow. Instead the light was necessarily sufficient to maintain an imperceptible change and yet a noticeable drop warmth on my skin. A feeling truly, from out of this world. The uniqueness of this experience makes it memorable, yet so do the repeatable events we experience every day. Meaning is the differentiator, mnemonics tell the story.

Sticks and Stones

Inspired by Robert Burton (1577-1640)'s quote, "A blow with a word strikes deeper than a blow with a sword.". The titled responsion is...

I once stood with a group waiting for a mid-day eclipse taking care to not stair at the sun. There was very little to no perceived reduction in light during the eclipse. The feeling that I describe as being, "out of this world!", was the reduction in warmth on my face without a reduction of brightness, it was kinda spooky! It felt like a cloud passing over yet the brightness remained the same. Weird yet memorable, flashbulb-like.

Hurt

Inspired by Jane Austen (1775-1817)'s quote, "If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more.". The titled responsion is...

The Eclipse Bends us Towards the Sun

Inspired by Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)'s quote, "To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.". The titled responsion is...

Spring forme, a New Beginning

Inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940)'s quote, "I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.". The titled responsion is...

Fictional Foray

Inspired by George Steiner (1929-2020)'s quote, "My writing of fiction comes under a general heading of those teachers, critics, scholars who like to try their own hand once or twice in their lives.". The titled responsion is...

In responsion, it saddens me that my collections of tropes, truisms, and philosophical musings would, more than likely, fill George Steiner "with bitterness and anger." At the core of Steiner's writing is a deep love of literature. This we share. Cleverness is, for me, in leau of eliteness. Not a critism, just an observation.
