"dance and tech" is a field of theft and non-authentic invention

On the "genre" of dance and technology, a comment was made that the people who use the tools in dance and tech are just feeding off of the creativity of the person who invented the tool.

I can move the forum to the top!!!

Just continue here I suppose and take it as a learning moment to start discussions in the forum and not as a blog entry.

Math in my opinion can describe much about nature, it doesn't necessarily mean nature operates on mathematical principles.

I don't mind moving the talk - except for the fact that this space is easier on the eye than the forum and also linked on the main page. I also would think that new people would then not know which forum is most current, and there may be confusion as to which spot is best to post. It would suck to have two threads running at the same time, breaking up the flow of this talk. Solutions?

I can't disagree with you. End of discussion. I'ld be curious to know the neurological facts of this matter. Or to discuss this with another, maybe more ancient, definition of the term mathematics.

@ Georg, I think I understand what you are saying - just that we can overlay any conceptual interpretation on the information we experience as moving bodies. I am not disagreeing with you - in fact, I think you're right. I am only saying that math is about relationships, (as opposed to ideas, like spoken languages) and if the body perceives and responds to it's internal relationship to itself and its environment, which it does (pain signals, temperature, blood flow, contraction and stretch, breath, etcetera all respond to the degree of what is happening within and around the body), then it is inherently sensing the subject matter of math. I am not saying that the body feels or thinks in terms of numbers, but that numbers and the signals of the body operate on the same function - relationships

well... I don't see it in such a way. I think only a specialist in cognition and neurology can give the right answer. But I understand by "feeling" or proprioception the information I receive from my nervous system. "Feeling things as mathematics" (only one possible example, i could also feel myself as god, a chicken or french grammar) is already an interpretation of the information of my nervous system and a projection. I'm thinking mathematics using information given by my body.

Hello networkers... this is picking up some speed here and it is a very important discussion that I suggest to continue in the forum...lets take advantage of the momentum and continue it there...who wants to throw the ball to the Forum?...in the bottom part of the page... you can name it something like:
Continuation from "dance and tech" is a field of theft and non-authentic invention. thread initiated by Julie Cruise...what doyathink?

And actually if we think about mathematics as a simple language based on relationships, then in fact the "proprioception" that allows you to "just feel it" would also encompass the sensation of relationships between various parts of the body and between the body and external space. So if the body is able to sense and respond to relationships, then it is feeling the subject matter of mathematics as well (relationships).
