Lighthouse Café Observation
December 2, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
Is it “the performance of a religious rite,” “a watching over, an investigation,” or an “act or fact of paying attention” ? Perhaps all three, when it comes down to it. Or something else?
Provocative suggestions from etymonline.com there. This café, hopefully, wlil be full of observations on observation. Is observation the opposite of subservience? And what about 2nd order cybernetics from Heinz von Foerster’s paper on Ethics?
No need to get too fancy though. We begin where we are ; trainspotters, bird watchers, astronomers… all forms of observation.
“The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.” –Jiddu Krishnamurti
