Mimicry

2014

Mimicry In evolutionary biology mimicry is the similarity of one species to another which protects one or both. This similarity can be in appearance, behavior, sound, scent and location, with the mimics found in similar places to their models. Mimicry occurs when a group of organisms, the mimics, evolve to share common perceived characteristics with another group, the models. In the project I am focusing on contemporary techniques of modern survival and combining them with anthropology and philosophy. I use the definitions from the scope of common knowledge as well as quotations from representatives of modern science and medicine.

Harmony meant as equilibrium stands for the possibility of contradictory elements, none of them primary as a basis. As one of the elements prevails, the harmony falls towards disharmony. Jürgen Habermas in his theory of rational communication and universal pragmatics defines ideal situation. It is organisation of giving out the arguments and making decisions which secures the equality in choise of any act of speech. It implies communication equality. Ideal situation as a construct is impossible with the majority of one side, all must be equal, all must have a chance to be present. When the postive begins to overwhelm, it brings the violence of the ideal.
