His study is actually of a much more tractable question, which is whether people in the national security area who are reporting to the United States State Department about historic events in real time, do they actually know what was a historic event as by decades later, what became historic?

Creative arts and investing in systems — Crooked Timber
But … congratulations, Minister, you just zapped the course that brought us Nick Park, Aardman Animation, Wallis and Grommit and the media-industry cluster in Bristol.

The thing about the arts industries is that they’re very hits-driven; talking about what happens to the median person going into them is always going to massively underestimate the value of the system as a whole.

Bion’s theory of learning is interesting because he also includes the fact that we don’t always want to know. He says that we unconsciously avoid or resist knowledge. We seek minus knowledge, -K, as he calls it. Failure to learn from experience is in other words linked to fear of thinking.

Why big data is actually small, personal and very human | Aeon Essays
By many calculations, a Hopi Indian man named Don Talayesva counts as the most-intensively documented such subject in history, in a life stretching from 1890 to 1976. Talayesva participated in 350 hours of formal interviews with the anthropologist Leo Simmons alone between 1938 and 1940, during which he used his life experiences as a Hopi to fill the taxonomic pigeonholes for ‘Hopi’ within an encyclopedic knowledge bank, the Human Relations Area File, hosted at Yale. There were also 8,000 diary pages Talayesva contributed to ethnographers; 341 dreams written down in wire-bound notebooks; a set of wide-ranging interviews; a full Rorschach protocol and other projective tests; and, as the result of all this, a thriving correspondence with the French surrealist André Breton.
