Between drama and performance, science and art.

One of the key events for the contemporary study of man and society was a dialogue between two thinkers that still resonates from the 17th century. Descartes separated the mind from the body, while Spinoza believed that the mind and the body are inseparable. This exchange of arguments triggered an unstoppable avalanche that put the scientific method in foreground for the next 350 years, and pushed the subjective perception into oblivion as being unsuitable and unreliable for the study of reality. People became merely external spectators, separated from the universe, until Einstein demonstrated that the measurements which the existence of the whole science relies upon are not impersonal events, but that human actions executed in a specific time and space are, in fact, very much dependent on the observer. Almost concurrently another theory refuted the basics of the scientific paradigm: quantum mechanics puts the reality of the everyday experience upside down, where logic and common sense fail. I can be or not be here simultaneously, I can be a particle or a vibration, guilty and innocent, alive and dead… Good evening, my name is Robert Oppenheimer, and I have been dead for over fifty years. I am so famous that I barely need a name. I am Death and the Destroyer of Worlds. I am its Saviour. I am the father of the atomic bomb.
