Sometime ago I used to have the following reflection as part of my signature block for email messages.
mnemonic is to analytic
mimetic is to synthetic
Of course the underlying premise is that the discrete blocks of memory are assembled in the flow of mimesis. Mimesis is about verisimilitude. It’s not about reproduction or replication. It’s about look-alike rendering. This reminds me of what I say about animation: “animation is not about movement it’s about synchronisation.”
And so for day 231
