Among the extraordinary collection of James Joyce manuscripts acquired by the National Library of Ireland in 2002, one of the most fascinating is the notebook used by the author in Paris and Pola in 2003/04. Long believed to have been lost, this jotter, its cover damp-stained and well-worn, was for the aspiring writer something of a pocket atelier or ambulant workshop. Filled with a variety of notes, reflections, accounts, booklists, poems and quotations, it affords precious insights into both his daily concerns and artistic interests during that formative period. …

Of special value is the evidence which the notebook provides for Joyce’s study of Aristotle. Particularly revealing are the thirtyone quotations which he wrote into his notebook, and upon which he drew during the decades which followed. Joyce’s choice is testimony to what he himself regarded as important in Aristotle; the act of selecting a text and transcribing it in careful longhand into his cahier is significant of itself.

The quotations fall into two groups: the first are taken from what may loosely be described as Aristotle’s psychological treatises, the second from his Metaphysics. Of the first group, fifteen are from the strictly psychological work, On the Soul(De Anima), which Joyce read in Barthélemy-Saint-Hilaire’s translation, entitled Psychologie d’Aristote.Traité de l’âme. The remaining three are drawn from Psychologie d’Aristote.Opuscules(Parva Naturalia), a collection of lesser philosophical writings traditionally appended to De Anima. The title Psychologie d’Aristote is somewhat misleading, and probably explains why Joyce was drawn to it in the first place. He soon lost interest in the second volume, having quoted only from the first two of the nine treatises. There was a time gap between the quotations on psychology and metaphysics. The eighteen quotations from the volumes Psychologie d’Aristote appear on pages 3 and 4; the remaining thirteen, from Métaphysique d’Aristote, are to be found on page 12 of the notebook.

The modernist temptation to write your own personal epic, a collage of whatever interests you or comes your way - regardless of how excessive these projects often got, haven’t we all been there?

All the life in the body is the life of the individual cells. There are thus millions upon millions of centres of life in each animal body. So what needs to be explained is not dissociation of personality but unifying control, by reason of which we not only have unified behaviour, which can be observed by others, but also consciousness of a unified experience.

Alfred North Whitehead, Process and Reality, II.III.XI

smallmariofindings:

In Super Mario 64, the stairs on the sides of the lobby of Peach’s Castle and the stairs in the middle of the lobby are programmed in fundamentally different ways. The stairs on the sides are actual stairs, i.e. the collision accurately reflects each horizontal and vertical surface of each step. The stairs in the middle, however, have the collision of a single diagonal surface and merely look like stairs visually.

This can be tested by making Mario crouch while walking down the stairs. On the actual stairs, Mario will start crawling down each step (top). On the fake stairs, he will instead slide down (bottom).

“The cause of the crisis is exceptional: production did not cease because too much productive capacity was built up in the hunt for increasingly higher profits, but rather because states, in reacting to the pandemic, shut down a large part of non-essential production. But was the crisis therefore triggered “externally”, by a virus that has nothing to do with capitalism?

Only in a few places on this planet does one find nature completely untouched by capitalist conditioning. The habitat of wild animals is becoming increasingly constricted, while the animals themselves are increasingly integrated into the circuits of valorisation, resulting in animal species that hardly encounter each other “in the wild” being crammed into animal markets. That in turn makes it easier for a virus to spread from one species to another. Factory farming is also an ideal breeding ground for the spread of infectious diseases. Unhygienic (cost-saving) working and living conditions make the spread of a virus easier when it has spread to human beings. Already, since the SARS pandemic of 2002–2003, it was suspected that similar pandemics with far greater numbers of victims were to be expected. The German government had precautionary plans drawn up, but these remained shelved.”
