    and the brain hemispheres left right play a role in the processing of emotions According to the valence hypothesis the left brain hemisphere is dominant when processing positive emotions and the right brain hemisphere is more active when processing negative emotions Our installation explores this hypothesis Valence exhibited at Creativity World Forum 2010 Photography Ludivine Lechat Using NodeBox for OpenGL we developed a game environment that interprets the alpha and valence state of your brain As demonstrated in the figure below high alpha relaxation will make the particles that float around on the screen attract to form a sticky ball at the center of the screen A drop in alpha brain waves makes the particles repulse from each other High valence arousal produces colorful and eccentric particles In a follow up project we collaborated with electronics engineer Tim Augustynen to expand our setup with ambient lighting We used a home automation server to control the lighting s intensity based on the player s affect The lights in this video are produced by MGX using 3D printing For further information see the references or watch Julien Penders talk at Creativity World Forum 2010 on YouTube Credits AUTHOR ROLE AFFILIATION Tom De

  • Tom De Smedt | On god evolution and the mind
    were mine so I couldn t take one Tom 2 But since everyone else was already eaten by the monster the bikes were no longer really theirs Tom 1 You have a point but something in the dream refrained me from taking a bike that was not mine Anyway something else happened You remember that effect from the Lord of the Rings movie where the trees seemed to part and zoom in at the same time Well it was that exactly Wind rustled the leaves in the trees and out galumphed no not the monster a giant twenty meter high Santa Claus Now Santa Claus is moving very fast and he definitely has an irritated look on his face He trudges over towards me thump thump thump meanwhile bellowing OH IT S YOU I LIKE YOU YOU DON T BELIEVE IN ME DO YOU To which I hesitantly respond that now that he s actually here I should perhaps reconsider Bellows the Santa Claus YES I AM GOD AFTER ALL YOU SHOULD BELIEVE IN ME Then he stops to ponder his own words for a while and angrily adds BUT DON T BELIEVE A WORD OF WHAT I M SAYING Since at this point in the dream I had gotten very confused and really had very little to say God continues to glare silently and angrily at me for what seems eternity and then finally turns away Tom 2 I think you would have a hard time forging a new religion out of your vision It doesn t seem to offer much comfort or certainty nor clarity I don t think anyone would like your Angry Santa religion very much Tom 1 I see your point Tom 2 But I d like to remark that even if my vision doesn t make any sense a religion does not ask you to question It only asks for your belief It might ask us to accept people walking on water seas parting water turning into wine miracles and resurrections does it not None of which can be factually proven That makes me even more uncomfortable At least this Monster Santa God dream is real within the confines of my memory But you are right that my vision as you call it would not be much of a religion It seems to lack straightforward moral answers to everyday life Tom 2 It might help you to write everything down in a book The truth about Santa Claws in clear and simple terms And then have ages of editing pass over it So what happens next Tom 1 Well next to the house is a hollowed out ancient forum complete with crumbling pillars and pedestals covered in ivy The walls of this forum are lined from top to bottom with thousands of books There are people everywhere in the forum awaiting the coming of Santa Claws So in God trudges then thump thump thump and with a flourish waves around his arms shouting LOOK I HAVE COME AND I AM VERY FICKLE AND ILL TEMPERED TODAY Then he clambers on top of one of the pedestals and sits down WHAT HAVE THE CHILDREN BEEN READING he demands Children s stories and fairytales the people respond FOOOOLS the enraged God bellows HAVE THEM READ PHILOSOPHY FROM NOW ON SOME KANT PERHAPS He points his trembling finger towards one of the children YOU SHOW ME WHAT YOU HAVE READING The child offers God a heavy volume of Kant s Critique of Pure Reason STUPID MIDGET YOU ARE FAR TOO YOUNG TO BE READING THAT READ SOME FAIRYTALES Are dreams real Tom 1 The dream goes on like this for a while with Santa Claws eventually lapsing into a monologue on duality Now what do you make of that Did you know that many people claiming to have had a near death experience saw God appearing as Santa Claus Tom 2 It appears you are about to ask me if this dream is any proof for the existence of a deity Tom 1 It certainly is an odd dream isn t it Tom 2 It certainly is that But then dreams often are However before we can even consider taking a dream as a proof for anything we must first ask ourselves if a dream is real What is real And as an afterthought what exactly does many people as you say mean Tom 1 You sound like a character from The Matrix movie Tom 2 smiles That s actually not a bad metaphor The Matrix used a lot of Baudrillard s theories on hyperreality as inspiration We could ask ourselves similarkinds of questions about dreams There is an old tale about a buttefly that is dreaming that it is a man lying in the grass dreaming he is a butterfly and so on Anyway this is just to point out that reality is an old discussion As for dreams dreaming by definition is considered as the activity that the brain engages in whilst sleeping Tom 1 You mean it is as real as any other activity in the brain like thinking or communicating Only in a different mode or context Tom 2 I personally prefer not to use the word mode it almost implies as if the brain was a state machine or as if there s a kind of hierarchy in brain activity The options given to us by behavioral psychology to explain why we dream make sense but I tend to read a little bit more in them I love to dream Why do we sleep Tom 2 First of all a dark environment is potentially dangerous from a survivalistic point of view Tom 1 Night predators awake Tom 2 Yes Logically you have as an animal statistically less chance of getting injured if you stay in one place You don t even have to be eaten by a tiger When it s dark you can t see where you are going So to
