Abstract

The International Polygon of Neurootological Knowledge Makers

Author(s): Claus F. Claussen

The historical success of humans (i.e., Homo sapiens) is based on their senses and their interaction with their thoughts, their selves, and their actions in using their hands and their tools. Knowledge can be built up in individuals through many sensorial percepts and experiences that grow during a lifetime. Humans, who have a history of perhaps 3 million years in this world, also have developed an interindividual knowledge that had to be handed down from one generation to the next. Of this long history of some 3 million years-so paleontologists are teaching us-mainly approximately 10,000 years of the most recent history show the development of an extracorporeal knowledge, set out in creative works (pictures, sculptures, and scripts) and lasting longer than the life spans of their authors.
