In today’s materialistic world there is a risk of people becoming slaves to money, as though they were simply cogs in a huge money-making machine. This does nothing for human dignity, freedom, and genuine well-being. Wealth should serve humanity, and not the other way around.

Dalai Lama originally shared:
 
My hope and wish is that one day, formal education will pay attention to what I call “education of the heart.” Just as we take for granted the need to acquire proficiency in the basic academic subjects, I am hopeful that a time will come when we can take it for granted that children will learn, as part of the curriculum, the indispensability of inner values: love, compassion, justice, and forgiveness.

Generations: Face Recognition Across the Ages

Artist +Frauke Thielking does a lot of really interesting work, but as a face perception researcher, her works that focus on faces (Generationen and Doppelgänger) are among the most interesting to me.

The image below shows a photograph from the Generationen series, in which Thielking photographs fathers/sons or mothers/daughters to highlight the similarities and differences in facial structure across the generations. No matter how much you try to be your own person, some part of you comes from your parents....

This series made me wonder whether people who suffer from prosopagnosia (the inability to recognize faces, which we talked about last week on #ScienceSunday : http://goo.gl/uMHWC) would have an easier or more difficult time detecting familial relationships based on the sort of images Thielking portrays. On the one hand, as someone who has face recognition difficulties myself, I often see resemblances where others don't (I'm a whiz at finding new "separated at birth" pairs), because I can't see the differences between individual faces as clearly as others can. On the other hand, because people with prosopagnosia seem to use a sort of piece-meal, puzzle solving process to recognize faces, they might be more thrown off by "irrelevant" featural changes, like the difference in hair colour and the presence of a moustache in the pairing below.

+Michael O'Reilly might have some insights. A brief Pubmed search turned up nothing, but maybe there's something out there I don't know about ( +Lisa DeBruine might know if there is something out there on this topic). If not, this would be a great collaboration between artists and scientists :)
