Abstract:

  • Abstract (keynote)

    We have, it seems, written on our body in mysterious characters something decisive concerning our person that we do not know ourselves. It is not our future in the lines of our hand but all our biases, hidden thoughts in the structure of activity of our brain. Could the machine of neuroscience have written itself those complicate signs in our brain, as the machine of Kafka short story writes the sentence on the body the convict? Do we live in a penal (neuro-)colony?
