Kalmykia in the 1990s.
For slx decades of Soviet rule, Buddhism was
dismissed as superstition, but the religion
revived with great fervor after the USSR
dissolved. Ilyumzhinov's effort to replace both
communism and Buddhism with the religion
of chess was met with derision, but that
response was quickly silenced by the brutal
suppression of critics. Lenin's birthplace, after
the death of leninism, rose from the ashes
as a dictatorship of chess.

The Figure that Stands Behind Figures: Mosaics of the Mind
by Robert Kaplan
The first volume of the Institute’s in-house series of books inspired by IFF lecture topics.
Based on our Inaugural Lecture in April 2003, The Figure that Stands Behind Figures is a charmingly erudite essay from mathematician Robert Kaplan about the history of figuration in Western culture. From the whimsical drolleries that encrusted the margins of medieval texts to the geometry of periodic and aperiodic tiling patterns, Kaplan traces the evolution of the “figure” in Western thought and challenges readers to discover for themselves the protean algebraic figure that stands in for all others.

attention - attenuation
In physics, attenuation (in some contexts also called extinction) is the gradual loss in intensity of any kind of flux through a medium. For instance, sunlight is attenuated by dark glasses, X-rays are attenuated by lead, and light and sound are attenuated by water.
In electrical engineering and telecommunications, attenuation affects the propagation of waves and signals in electrical circuits, in optical fibers, and in air (radio waves).

Psychogenic diseases are physical illnesses that stem from emotional or mental stresses.[1]
In most cases, a structural or anatomical abnormality has not been identified, as seen in an organic disease, however this does not account for possible genetic, biochemical, electrophysiological or other abnormalities that may be present but for which we do not have the technology or background to identify.[2]
Psychogenic disease is a broader category than psychosomatic disease, in that it can include the hysterical form, where there is no physiologic change in peripheral tissues, as well as the psychosomatic form, where there is some physiologic alteration.[3]
Psychogenic fever is one of the most common psychosomatic diseases and usually occurs during a psychopathologic process.[citation needed] Patients with psychogenic fever have acute or persistent body temperature above normal range in psychologically stressful situations. In spite of numerous case reports on psychogenic fever, there are few epidemiological studies.[4]
