There's an old adage- "You can not step into same river twice"
River is a dynamic flow of something very material- water. Yet, since it's in continuum, it's in a state of flux. What u call river is actually a flow & u can't hold same constituents in permanence
2.
To an experience or cognition 3 things r required as absolute minimum:
A) Object (Rupa)
B) Consciousness (citta)
C) Mind/ mental factors (caitta / cetasika)
Definition of Consciousness is most abused & at the very least, used in part or vaguely in most of literatures.

Happy to be back in Sweden for my 2nd #BiologyofSperm meeting & hearing fascinating stories on evolution of sperm, gamete interactions, reproductive organs and strategies by fellow #spermnerds
#BoS2019 #BoS15
Started strong yesterday with Sabine Koelle showing us the very first live imaging movies of sperm behavior in human reproductive tracts, all the way to the fertilization site, and even sperm filmed live swimming inside the testes! What a cool talk!
Next @lross_evoento told us about (incomplete) paternal genome silencing in fascinating mealybugs. @emwhitti brought us to the amazing world of Post-Ejaculatory Modifications w/ impressive proteomics data from 1000s of #drosophila reproductive tract dissections. #BoS2019 #BoS15

Follow up to yesterday, this is your #coyote #Mythbuster this week.

People: THIS. IS. NOT. TRUE. This is a MYTH. People have spread this myth for so long in the US, but this behavior has never been proven or recorded.
An animal coincidentally pursuing a coyote and subsequently being attacked or preyed upon =/= coyote "luring." This is not how medium-to-large terrestrial #canids hunt. This is not how #canid #cognition works.
A coyote hunting has its nose to the ground, stopping periodically to listen. With eyes still directed toward ground, the coyote will leap up into the air, and down onto the burrow to catch the rodent/rabbit.

“To understand how infants come to be able to control the forceful interactions of their bodies with their environment is to gain insight into the nature of cognitive processes as they emerge.” - Port & van Gelder (1995) about Esther Thelen’s perspective on human development
Thelen (1995): “What infants do in everyday life, what they perceive, how they act, and what they remember are joined seamlessly to how they think. ...
“Since a major developmental task of #infancy is gaining control of the body, #cognition is thus #embodied as its origins deal with #actions of the #body in the world.” - Esther Thelen (1995)
