w ‘Age of Entanglement.’ [2][3]
This I think is the right word. In my artistic practice I have been working on entangling all of my work as a way of exploring this idea symbolically by entangling plastic and descriptive expression. Part of the motivation is to demonstrate also the power of art as a means of thinking about complex issues. Also I would say that entanglement opens up a better way to unify knowledge than the old science “reductive” approach of Edward O Wilson (Consilience) which just seems to reduce everything to the matter of genes, which is not much use if one is trying to unify knowledge to achieve a different view or address complex challenges. If one is designing mirco-electronics for computers, then electrons are appropriate, but if one is interested in using computers for solving problems, then programming is more useful.
