EmQM17 – The David Bohm Centennial Symposium

As the lead agency for the Fetzer Franklin Fund we are very proud to announce the EMQM17 Symposium in London this year.

On the occasion of David Bohm’s 100th birthday, a symposium on emergent quantum mechanics will be held at the University of London, Senate House, on October 26 – 28, 2017. This special issue features expert views that critically evaluate the prospects and significance – for 21st century physics – of ontological quantum mechanics, an approach which David Bohm helped pioneer. In original de Broglie-Bohm theory, the mathematical formalism refers to hypothetical ontic elements (e.g., John Bell’s “beables”) such as the quantum potential. In the 21st century, realist quantum approaches often distinguish between ψ-epistemic and ψ-ontic ontological quantum theories. Unlike ψ-ontic theories, the ψ-epistemic theories do not view the wave function ψ as a state of reality. Nevertheless, both types of approaches posit – again – the possibility of an ontological foundation for quantum mechanics.

About Emergent quantum mechanics (EmQM)

Emergent quantum mechanics (EmQM) is a research program that explores the possibility of an ontology for quantum mechanics. The resurgence of interest in realist approaches to quantum mechanics, including deterministic and indeterministic ones, challenges the standard textbook view. For example, standard “no-go” theorems against the possibility of realist, i.e., ontologically-grounded, quantum mechanics are increasingly recognized as falling short of their stated aim. Recent work also indicates that traditional assumptions and theorems such as nonlocality, contextuality, free choice, and non-signalling, need not necessarily contradict the existence of certain quantum ontologies.

kakoii Trendscouting Papier 2015/2016Dear friends. We are a German / Japanese design company and want to invite you to join our art project which is based on our inspirational trips all over the world. The purpose is to give and share inspiration, thoughts and good will from all over the world. No money involved.

We already have people from over 50 taking part. And it would be great to have you on board as well.

This is how it works:

  1. Write us who you are, where you are and what makes your home town and country special for you.
  2. We will send you a cool present for free. It is something we designed. You’ll love it, promise!
  3. After you receive it – please send us a picture of what you did with our present.
  4. All pictures will be shown in an online and an offline exhibition in Berlin.
  5. And if you’re lucky you will be the local curator of our next art project. We might even visit you 😉

So go ahead. Send an email to: artproject(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)kakoii.com

Don’t forget to give us your postal address. We’ll send you a real non-digital present by old-fashioned airmail.

Dulux’s latest campaign is a digital upgrade of the paint swatch, brought to life in a cinematic telling of a dystopian future devoid of colour.

  • Shoppable videos help to drive consumers direct to purchase
  • It is an innovative way to browse shades of colour

The paint manufacturer has brought the tired process of choosing between thousands of colour hues to life in a shoppable video that builds on the 2014 Colour Prohibition campaign. The video draws on The Polarity Paradox, visualising the states of extreme spending and the frugality of post-recession consumerism. In the film, inspired by 2002 sci-fi epic Equilibrium, people denied colour stage an underground coup and viewers can select colours they like as they journey into the rebels’ camp. By selecting a colour they are taken to a small display with curated Pinterest boards and a link to the Dulux online store. Great work and a good example how brave brands are combining Faction Marketing with Shoppable Videos to create irrepressible content that reduces the time it takes from inspiration to purchase.

The immortal Brand – the Age of the long Near

Check out this great video of the great guys at the Future Laboratory in London. It’s about The Immortal Brand: The Age of the Long Near. The Google-funded Long Now Foundation looks at possible futures over the next 10,000 years, Evernote calls itself ‘the 100-year start-up’, and Toyota recently announced its vision for a hydrogen […]

Check out this great video of the great guys at the Future Laboratory in London. It’s about The Immortal Brand: The Age of the Long Near. The Google-funded Long Now Foundation looks at possible futures over the next 10,000 years, Evernote calls itself ‘the 100-year start-up’, and Toyota recently announced its vision for a hydrogen future, a plan that could take 30–40 years to come to fruition.

For brands to survive today they have to think in terms of centuries, not just five-year plans. To be an Immortal Brand, you need to embrace 100-year Thinking, Altruvation and play the Patience Game to ensure you will be around for the long haul. Welcome to the Age of the long Near.
