** A Pixel Is Not A Little Square (And a Voxel is Not a Little Cube)

My purpose here is to, once and for all, rid the world of the

misconception that a pixel is a little geometric square. This is

not a religious issue. This is an issue that strikes right at the

root of correct image (sprite) computing and the ability to

correctly integrate (converge) the discrete and the

continuous. The little square model is simply incorrect. It

harms. It gets in the way. If you find yourself thinking that a

pixel is a little square, please read this paper. I will have

succeeded if you at least understand that you are using the model

and why it is permissible in your case to do so (is

it?). Everything I say about little squares and pixels in the 2D

case applies equally well to little cubes and voxels in 3D. The

generalization is straightforward, so I won’t mention it from

hereon 1 . I discuss why the little square model continues to

dominate our collective minds. I show why it is wrong in

general. I show when it is appropriate to use a little square in

the context of a pixel. I propose a discrete to continuous

mapping—because this is where the problem arises—that always

works and does not assume too much. I presented some of this

argument in Tech Memo 5 ([Smith95]) but have encountered a

serious enough misuse of the little square model since I wrote

that paper to make me believe a full frontal attack is necessary.

** Set Theory and Logic

- Title: Set Theory and Logic

- Authors: Robert R. Stoll

- Copyright date: 1963

- Back of book:

Set Theory and Logic is the result of a course of lectures for

advanced undergraduates, developed at Oberlin College for the

purpose of introducing students to the conceptual foundations of

mathematics. Mathematics, specifically the real number system,

is approached as a unity whose operations can be logically

ordered through axioms. On of the most complex and essential of

modern mathematical innovations, the theory of sets (crucial to

quantum mechanics and other sciences), is introduced in a most

careful, concept by concept manner, aiming for the maximum in

clarity and stimulation for the further study in set logic.

- Authors: Alexander Alland, JR.

- Copyright date: 1977

- Back of book:

A renowned anthropologist looks at these (Graffiti among other

things) and many other controversial questions from an

evolutionary point of few. He concludes that there are certain

fundamentals of art which are the same for children and adults,

earl and modern man, Asians and Americans. For the real roots

of art extend back to mankind's Animal ancestors and it is with

them that we must begin our search for the meaning of art.

** The Separability Thesis

- Title: The Separability Thesis

- Author: Iris Spoor

- In title: The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Critisism: A qurarterly publication of the American Society for Aesthetics

- In volume: 81

- In number: 4

- In season: Fall

- In year: 2023

- Summary:

Debates over the metaphysical status of aesthetic properties have

persisted for decades in Aesthetics. One question that

consistently arises in any discussion of aesthetic properties is

whether they are fundamentally evaluative or descriptive in

character. Aesthetic properties are often treated as parallel to

moral properties which means many philosophers take it for

granted that aesthetic properties are fundamentally

evaluative. There are some philosophers, like Frank Sibley and

Jerrold Levinson, who take the road less traveled and treat

aesthetic properties as primarily descriptive in character. In

this paper, I outline Levinson’s intriguing view that the

evaluative aspect of an aesthetic property can be canceled

leaving us with the descriptive essence of the property. I refer

to this as the separability thesis. It contends that evaluative

reactions to aesthetic properties can be separated from the

objective, perceptual content of an aesthetic experience thereby

leaving us with the non-evaluative core of the property. I go on

to defend the separability thesis from a powerful challenge

developed by Rafael De Clercq. Ultimately, I contend that while

De Clercq’s argument is clever and insightful it fails to

undermine the separability thesis.

- My Remarks:

Some of the people I converse with on FB talk about metephore in art, Mark Staff Brandl being one of them. I even downloaded his book.
