Chimeras and Consciousness

Luis Rico

The MIT Press

This chapter highlights the need to transcend disciplinary barriers. It specifically argues the importance of education of the true, chimeric nature for art, science, and other aspects of culture. This chapter suggests that new integrated art, science, and technology will begin natural links between twentieth-century Gaian and symbiogenetic ideas. It hopes that the interconnectedness of creative activities that has resulted to transformation of the human environment will continue to produce surprise. It predicts the artistic-scientific informatic concepts and tools to implement sustained innovation that includes humans in the rest of nature.

Keywords:   culture, art, science, technology, human environment, chimeric nature
