What makes him tick? A cinema inside his head, tricky thinking games and complex thoughts. Order into chaos doesn’t help. But the truth is out there ;-)! It’s worth a try like a simple jump over puddles.
Ernst is interested in many things and some of his new discoveries go straight onto a canvas or into a sculpture. Its in the recurring UFO Theme in his new work. He likes to listen and read about people who believe in such stuff. For instance have you heard of Erich von Daniken’s ancient astronaut expose, Chariots of the Gods?
It was first published in 1968, the pioneering book ignited a worldwide craze for flying saucers, crop circles, extraterrestrial and alien abductions. In the 70s no stargazer or sci-fi fan was without this bible of the bizarre.
The Book suggests that our planet was a stopover point thousands of years ago for interstellar visitors. These in turn shared futuristic technology with ancient civilizations during their stops.
Now 50 years later he has built a huge business around his theories. Social media enabled him to reach out internationally to the right target groups. In turn raising book, merchandise and lecture sales.
“Heinz von Förster” die Wahrheit ist die Erfindung eines Lügners!
tHE MAP IST NOT A TERRITORY! lt, Förster: The Map of the Map is not the map of the territory.
Mangagment und Hierachy:
“Auch vom Dümmsten kann man lernen”
“Lass die deppert sterben”
“Heilige” (vom griechischen hieros)
Traditionmodell des 19. und 20.Jahrhunderts:
das Modell ist der katholischen Kirche nachempfunden!
Der Papst ist derjenige der der heilige ist!
die hierachische Kommandostruktur
es liegt der Gedanke zu grunde das “die da oben” die absolut besten sind
Fallbeispiel: Die Schlacht um die Midway-Inseln:
Selbstorganisation vs. hierachisches System
überindividuelle Kraft, selbstorganisation, spontane Ordnung!
Ordnung durch Störung
( Voreingenommenheit) ??? + ( Unsicherheit soll Fragen stellen lernen)
If Franz Kafka and Karl May had spent a night of drinking together and then sat down to write a book together it would have most likely been something like the the ship of Theseus.
is a thought experiment which raises the following question: if an object that has all of its components replaced does it fundamentally remain the same object? This concept is one of the oldest in Western philosophy, so old it was also discussed by the likes of Heraclitus and Plato.
In the story Theseus owns a some what older ship which he brings to a shipyard, to have it renewed. He asks the ship builder to remove the 1000 ship planks and have them replaced by new ones, this he does on dock A. The Ship yard owner then uses the old planks to build a new ship on dock 2. He builds an exact replica of the first ship and succeeds.
After this book he went on to read:
The Book is about a twelve-year-old boy T.S. Spivet, a map making enthusiast. T.S. Spivet is a touching protagonist with a compulsive need to categorize and map everything, stemming from a psychological need, to give meaning to the information he delivers so that it still feels organic. In the story we watch him journey to self-acceptance and self-recognition.
Tower of Babylon, Story of Your Life, Hell Is the Absence of God, The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate und Exhalation is the short story collection of the author: Ted Chiang. Most of you will know the story of your life, if you saw the film Arrival.
In the “Story of Your Life” Chiang poses the questions: would knowing your future be a gift or a curse, and is free will simply an illusion? It leaves the reader thinking about what effect knowing how their life would turn out would have on them. How would they change the present if they knew the future.
Communicating with the unknown is also a big part of the story. Chiang spent five years researching and familiarizing himself in the field of linguistics before writing the “Story of Your Life”.
Oder aber es geht, so wie in der Fernsehserie Star Trek, um die Frage, wie man mit dem unterschiedlichen Entwicklungsstand zwischen den menschlichen Raumfahrern und den nicht ganz so weit fortgeschrittenen fremden Zivilisationen umgehen soll.
The Philosopher and the Wolf is a philosophical memoir about a man’s life and what he learned about it by living with a wolf for more than ten years. Ultimately, the book is a philosophical reflection on the human condition. Its main purpose, is to examine how what we call ‘social intelligence’ affects how we think about and engage with the world.
Robert Anton Wilson in an American bestseller author, philosopher and anarchist. Who described his work as an “attempt to break down conditioned associations, to look at the world in a new way, with many models recognized as models or maps, and no one model elevated to the truth” Ernst was first introduced to him when he came across a youtube video from Mexican director Edgar Pera.
In this video Wilson explains his view on reality. The video is called Who is the master and who makes the grass green? In case you don’t know this is one of the introductory concepts in Zen Buddhism is: Who is the great magician who makes the grass green? Who creates our existential experience? The word ‘yoga’ means ‘union’. You need the human brain to see the grass as green. Dogs see grass without color.
You need the human brain and the grass hitched together to make the yoga(union), which we call the ‘greenness of the grass’. Everybody thinks being mystic is complicated but actually you’re experiencing your union with everything all the time. Otherwise you wouldn’t be experiencing anything at all. Ernst read the Book Cosmic trigger, which he really enjoyed. He had to draw over the cover though, it was so ugly.
Who is Kuato?
An child-sized symbotic mutant whose conjoined twin is an otherwise normal-looking adult male. As seen in the 1990 film Total Recall, where Kuato was the wise and admired leader of the mutant resistance on Mars. When Kuato emerges from his host’s abdomen, the host goes into a trance-like state.
Total recall is a film based on the science fiction short story We can remember it for you whole sale. Its a combination of reality, false memory, and real memory written by the American author Philip K. Dick. Who also wrote the Minority report and Blade Runner.
Ernst is not a Trekkie but he is most definitely a Matrix aficionado. He has watched the 1999 movie over and over again. The Matrix is an action filled, simple, easy, funny and yet complex film.
It draws from and points to numerous cinematic and literary works, and concepts from mythology, religion and philosophy, including the ideas of Buddhism, Christianity, Gnosticism, Hinduism, and Judaism.
Writers have found The Matrix thematically close to the work of science fiction author Philip K. Dick, particularly Dick’s speculative Exegesis. Other writers have also commented on the similarities between one example of such influence is a Philip K. Dick’s 1977 conference, in which he stated: “We are living in a computer-programmed reality, and the only clue we have to it is when some variable is changed, and some alteration in our reality occurs”.
A Movie questioning reality. A connection between the assumption of The Matrix and Plato’s Allegory of the Cave has also been suggested. The allegory is related to Plato’s theory of Forms, which holds that the true essence of an object is not what we perceive with our senses, but rather its quality, and that most people perceive only the shadow of the object and are thus limited to false perception. Are we still in the game? That question at the end of the end of the movie follows Ernst.
At the same time iconic Director David Cronenberg released a similar film. Both films dealt with the same central question: What if your world was simply a virtual reality and you didn’t know it?
“Its a movie that works on whatever level you want to bring to it“. Josh Whedon.
Star Trek take place in the future. It doesn’t matter if you like Star Trek, you have definitely heard about it. Its a show that portrays an utopian society. “Star Trek.” does not really have any alien races. Its Aliens are metaphors.
For example the Vulcans represent our logic, Klingons our combative side, the Romulans our secretiveness, Ferengi our greed, Bajorans our spirituality, Betazoids our empathy and Borg our over-reliance on technology. In each race, there is something admirable and something twisted. Humanity can embody all the above.
