3           Demonstration outside the symposium venue

As in 2007, at the 4th (biennial) symposium, there will be a small but multi-nationality, peaceful political demonstration, in support of the agenda of European Parliament Resolution A4-0005/1999 Para 27, outside the symposium venue (the Stadhalle, Ettlingen), for the duration of the symposium.

In The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Kuhn argued that science does not progress via a linear accumulation of new knowledge,  but undergoes periodic revolutions, also called "paradigm shifts" , in which the nature of scientific inquiry within a particular field is abruptly transformed. In general, science is broken up into three distinct stages. Prescience, which lacks
a central paradigm, comes first. This is followed by "normal science", when scientists attempt to enlarge the central paradigm by "puzzle-solving". Thus, the failure of a result to conform to the paradigm is seen not as refuting the paradigm, but as the mistake of the researcher. As anomalous results build up, science reaches a crisis, at which point a new paradigm, which subsumes the old results along with the anomalous results into one framework, is accepted. This is termed revolutionary science.

Over mij

Ben in 2005 "overvallen" door mindcontroltechnologie, meer algemeen noem ik het nu Artificiele Intellentie, actief wereldwijd met netwerken hierover, en het in kaart brengen van de problematiek als samenhangend geheel. Hoop dat spoedig dit erstige aandacht (die het verdient) krijgt als zowat het belangrijkste etische vraagstuk voor de mensheid en toekomst.
