Immer wieder lese ich die Frage, ob & wie Kolonialismus, Imperialismus & Rassismus im Unterricht thematisiert werden.

Hier kommt ein kleiner Werkstattbericht zu meinem neuen Pen&Paper, das morgen in meiner 8. Premiere haben wird.

Nachdem wir Ende März im Kino #DerVermesseneMensch gesehen hatten, war klar, dass ich mein Unterrichtsmaterial zum #Imperialismus überarbeiten wollte.

👀💭1/2: The #Giza Pleateu is home to some of the most astonishing #ancient #megalithic structures on the planet. Many question how it was built as these fascinating structures seemed to have been built using some technologies more advanced than our modern day tools. #Archaeology
👀💭 2/2 I think most people don't understand what they are looking at, this stone was a practice stone being worked on by the #civilization that proceeded the original, they tried to replicate the work that had been done previously effortlessly. #Archaeology #Megalithic #Ancient

بابلی (موجودہ عراقی شہر) تہذیب کا ارتقاء
2300 قبل مسیح
مسیح (Jesus) سے بھی 4000 سال قبل میں میسوپوٹیمیا (موجودہ عراق) میں آباد سمیری قوم (Sumerians/Ancient Group of People) نے موجودہ مہذب دنیا کا اولین کلچر قائم کیا۔
سومیریوں نے اپنے شہر ار، اریک اور کش ImageImage
میں میخی خط ایجادکیا، میناروں میں معبدبنائے، اور ایک متاثرکن اورقابل عقل و دانش شریعت متشکل کی۔ بےمثال ادب اوراساطیرتخلیق کی۔
کچھ عرصے بعدہی اس خطے پر سامی اور عکادیوں (Sàmi and Akkadian) نےحملہ کیااور انہوں نےسومیری زبان اور کلچر اپنالیا۔
2000سال قبل مسیح اسی تہذیب کو آموریوں نے Image
فتح کیا اور بابل کو اپنا دارالخلافہ بنایا۔
500 برس بعد اشوریوں نے اشور کے قریب سکونت کی۔
اسی بابلی روایات نے کنعانی اسطوریات اور مذہب کو بھی متشکل کیا جو قدیم اسرائیلیوں کی ارض موعود بن گیا۔
بابلیوں نے بھی اپنی ثقافتی کامیابیوں کو دیوتاؤں سے منسوب کیا لہذا بابل کو بھی Image

👀💭 This is the Unfinished Obelisk of Aswan, Egypt stands 137 feet (42m) tall and weighs 1200 tons lies in the ancient quarries near #Aswan, #Egypt. This gigantic piece of rock was intended to be erected as an #obelisk, but for some reason it was left unfinished.
👀💭 The ⬜️White box shows a crack on the obelisk, 🔵Blue shows the quarrying process around the obelisk, & the 🟥Red/Pink indicates a sculpting technique before the prime finish. I theorize this #obelisk may have been a failed attempt by a #civilization thereafter. #Archaeology
👀💭 The 🔵Blue box shows the same technique pattern used to sand down & sculpt the #obelisk, while the ⚪️White box highlights a slightly different technique than the blue, you just have to close closely. The ↪️arrow indicates the difference in finished from the near by surface.

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

- SFI President David Krakauer sets the tone for this weekend's celebrations
#IPFest Image
David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

میخی یا پیکانی رسم الخط (Cuneiform Script)
3500 BC - 2500 BC
دنیا کے اس قدیم تیروں کے سروں کی مانند رسم الخط کو دریافت کرنے کا سہرا ایک انگریز عہدے دار کے سر ھے جو ایران میں مقیم تھا۔ اس نے 12 سال لگا کر اسے دریافت کیا۔
یہ رسم الخط بابلی، عکادی، سمیری ImageImageImage
تہذیب (Sumerian Civilization) کے زمانے میں، لکڑی کے کیل کی مدد سے لکھنے کیلئےمٹی کی تختیوں کا استعمال کیا جاتا تھا۔ اسی لیے اسے میخی کہا جاتا ھے۔
سمیری تہذیب میں تحریر کا سب سے پہلے آغاز شہر یوروک (Uruk) سے ھوا جو تصویری (Pictorial) تھایعنی "بچہ بھاگ رہا ھے" تو بھاگتےبچے کا خاکہ۔ ImageImage
گیلی مٹی کی تختیوں پر *نرسل کے قلم سے لکھ کر وہ اسے آگ میں پکالیتے تھے۔ اور یہ کام سب سے پہلے مندر کے کسی کیا کرتے تھے۔
اسی تحریر نے معاشرے کو منظم کیا۔
اسی طریقے سےوہ تجارتی لین دین، ٹیکس، قانونی معاہدے، احکامات، حساب کتاب، رسیدیں لکھتے۔

Part 2: Why didn't Howard write Conan's origin tale?

TLDR: He didn't want to.

Long version: The reason you’ve never seen Howard’s version of Conan on-screen is the same reason you never will; the vast majority of screenplays...

...since the late 80s have emphasized “The Hero’s Journey”.

And Conan doesn’t have one.

Howard wrote the Conan stories in the 1930s, before “the Hero’s Journey” writing method existed. Joseph Campbell did not begin championing the monomyth until 1944. Lord of the Rings...

...wasn't published until the 50s. And Campbell did not perfect his cycle until 1987.

It would take a complete visionary with balls of steel to throw the past 40 years of popular screenwriting into the bin and film Conan’s origin the way Howard wrote it; and then...

The story of Potassium and Sodium.
Potassium: Atomic number 19. Symbol K, comes from the Latin word kalium. Kalium derives its origin from two Sanskrit words words Kali and iyum meaning 'this'. Word Potassium was coined much later by sir Humphrey Davy
#indic #science 1/
The reason it's called potassium is because the most common method of obtaining it was by leaching potash which is nothing but plant 'ash' kept in iron 'pots'
Sodium: Element from the same family. Used in opposition to potassium to allow the organism to build #indic #science 2/
up an electrostatic charge on cell membranes that allows for transmission of nerve impulses. All living cells float in an ocean of an extracellular fluid rich in sodium.
Sodium, also called Natrium, is further derived from Sanskrit word 'Netri' and 'iyum'

"In the fullness of the #Anthropocene, what does a hard look at the relationships between #ecosystems and economic #systems in the broadest sense suggest about our collective #future?"…
"Before articulating prescriptions, we first need a comprehensive diagnosis of the patient. In 2019, we are beyond a #piecemeal listing of what’s wrong. A coherent description of the global economy requires a #systems view"

"Ecological economics acknowledges that real economies are completely dependent on energy. However, orthodox economic theory remains blind to this reality. As a result, so do our institutions and our citizenry. The disconnect has massive implications for our future."

The closest feeling I've felt to building a startup, outside of actually building a #startup, is playing Sid Meier's #Civilization.

But compared to Civ, a startup:

- has way more complex and nuanced strategies and best practices, but no Civilopedia
- doesn't let you save the game and pick it up later
- doesn't always let you "one more turn"... sometimes you just have to take a break or do it tomorrow

The beginning of Civ when you're scouting out the terrain near your capital and trying to find the ideal place to settle your next 2-3 cities feels a lot like the idea maze.
