Gehirn und Gedudel: Warum die Fußball-Europameisterschaft das Leben verlängert, der Musikantenstadl aber nicht

Das menschliche Gehirn kennt viele Wege sich einzurichten, im Alltag und im Fernsehsessel. Wie kein anderes ist es dazu fähig, aus neuen Erfahrungen Erinnerungen zu machen und Können zu erwerben. Dafür zahlen wir jedoch den Preis, dass uns vieles zur Wiederholung wird. Kulturelle Ereignisse können so Neuheitswert haben, aber auch als Alltagsgedudel durch die Finger des Gedächtnisses rinnen, und es gibt kein Argument dafür, dass das eine oder das andere "gehirngerechter" ist.

Sample text

Diese art des denkens setzt eine qualitative aufnahme von realitäten voraus. qualität ist nur ein anderes wort für verhältnis, analogie. wo es verhältnisse gibt, gibt es den vergleich, die wertung, die qualität. die digitale erkenntnis ist sehr wohl präziser, dafür aber ohne wertung. wenn napoleon 200 pferde beim gegner zählt, so wird dies nur zu einer wertung, wenn er diese zahl mit der seiner eigenen pferde vergleicht. napoleon muß allerdings nicht anfangen zu zählen. die exakte zahl ist nicht erheblich.

Zwar ging die naturwissenschaft ganz auf seine wege ein, ja sie wurde erst möglich, weil das denken sich am konkreten orientierte. aber unsere geistige kultur ist mehr denn je bestimmt vom glauben an die ewigen werte. ein haus kann heute keine wohnanlage mehr sein, kein optimierungspunkt des besseren wohnens. ein haus partizipiert am ewigen haus. die postmodernen architekten sind auf der suche nach dem ewigen haus, nach der ewigen schönheit, der ewigen säule, dem ewigen portal. das klassische denken ist nicht tot.

Es ist gefährlich, an die freiheit zu glauben, wie dies heute den untertanen angeraten wird. recht und freiheit sind, so sagt man, sich selbst genügende edle werte. indessen ist freiheit und recht nur die konkrete freiheit und das konkrete recht. und da eine gemachte welt zu ständig neuen zuständen der 32 ausstattung führt, wächst ständig auch die versuchung der gleichschaltung und einordnung in lenkbare systeme. die freiheit und mit ihr das recht sind nicht da, sie sind im gegenteil ständig gefährdet und sind deshalb nur auffindbar in der konkreten freiheit und im konkreten recht, in der lebbaren behauptung, in der entworfenen verwirklichung.
