The Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) is an astronomical interferometer of radio telescopes in the Atacama desert of northern Chile.
On 8th March 2017, astronomers may have spotted some of the earliest stardust ever created in the cosmos. Observations from the array of telescopes in ALMA, show that a distant, young galaxy is filled with dust probably produced by the first supernova explosions in the universe.
In brazilian portuguese, “Alma” means “soul”, “creature”, “life”. Derived from the Latin animu (anima), means “the source of life”.
Trying to combine science facts with psychology studies, I defined this path as “The Cosmology of the Self” – as an experiment to understand how and why our bodies and mind react in every different way to music.
THE COSMOLOGY OF THE SELF
The pre-socratic philosofers used the word kosmos in order to signify the “order”. In modern times, the meaning of this term further expanded to express the order of things found in the world that surrounds us, and more vaguely the universe that encompasses the human existence.
Today, we find ourselves part of a series of abstract networks that define the way we connect and socially interact. The huge and ever accelerated flow of data that we exchange on a daily basis has affected our perception of time and space by blurring the boundaries between the real and the unreal.
In ou everyday life, we collect experiences, moments, and sentiments that formulate the ways in which we conceive the world. In other terms, human life itself can be seen as a personal collection.
“Collecting is a fundamental way of arranging and mastering knowledge.”
