Kærlighedsdynamikkens anden lov [link]

“…det var oprindeligt psykologen John Gottman, der i 1998 formulerede denne ‘sentimentale relationers hovedsætning’ på baggrund af ekstensive undersøgelser af amerikanske parforhold. Fra videooptagede samtaler kunne han se, hvilke mekanismer, der typisk fører til brud og hvilke, der bidrager til stabilisering. De fire klareste indikatorer for et apokalyptisk ægteskab er ifølge ham: Kritik, foragt, forsvar og ignorering – hvor foragt nok er den værste.”

“José-Manuel Reys model, der for nylig er publiceret i onlinetidsskriftet PloS one… er relativt simpel og antager, at de eksterne faktorer [i et forhold] kan udtrykkes i en parameter, som får den subjektive lykkefølelse til at aftage stærkere end normalt efter vielsen. Han anvender koblede ikke-lineære differentialligninger, der består af to led: en funktion for lykkefølelsen, der aftager med tiden, og en funktion for den indsats, forholdet har brug for, for at kunne opnå en ligevægt.”

Time Travel, a vent for loss of control

Humans can do anything, they can think. Or they will change their thinking.

 

THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS

* MOVIES INVOLVING TRAVELLING IN TIME by way of propulsion, magic, sleep, hypnotism, ”time machine”, worm holes, body hopping, ”sudden temporal phenomemen”, weather penomenen, reception of sent data from the future a.o.

Time Travelling expresses control over the progression of Time, oftenmost perceived as the image handed down by Marcus Aurelius: Water flowing towards the sea as a river that never repeats itself – in either direction it is at any given point different from adjoing points. To most people it feels natural to perceive time, ie. human life, with an ending and a beginning, the beginning being uncontrollably lost to us, but the ending, or the way to the ending, everything that is meant by the word ”control”: The open vista of opportunities and possibilities, of which we will try to ensure a handfull of those most interesting to us and most needed for survival. And when we succeed in our endeavours, we are in control. When we do not succeed, we have lost control.
