Neurootology a bridge between science, philosophy and fine arts


Science is not only a side activity for a physician in the field of neurootology diagnosing and treating patients suffering from vertigo, nausea, tinnitus, hearing loss etc.. In every case he has to realize an idea about the disease and the neurosensorial failures in the background of the disorders. Physical measurements, mathematical models of evaluation and models of systematisations have helped us to improve our knowledge and ability.
The point of view of fine arts in this primarily scientific approach comes with the fundamental philosophical approach of sensorial empirism since Seneca, Hume, Locke, Berkerly, Kant etc. The famous sentence of Seneca “NIHIL IN INTELLECTU QUOD NON ERAT ANTE IN SENSU!” is valid for the science of any physiological neurosensology as well as for the fine art for instance of ancient sculptors like Myrhon, Polyclet, Phidias, Praxiteles, Lysippos etc. The fine arts and sciences are not two different worlds, but the 2 sides of the same coin “idea”. They are conditioning each other. They are stimulating each other. They are fields of analogous activities for each other.
By means of concrete coloured models we have moulded our understanding of the regulation of equilibrium and dysequilibrium into neurootometric functional experimental networks and investigations. This then also was extended by the artistical momentum of our parallel world with making minor and major steel sculptures for instance of spatial graphics. They are showing an expression of human regulation of equilibrium and dysequilibrium in a segment of fine art, which we call “Narrative sensology”, with steel sculptures exposed in private and public locations. The spatial graphics abstract this momentum in the steel wire graph sculptures. The material element is object of inventions, permanent toyling and restlessly searching for the concretisation of ideas through materials and tools.
Important philosophical themes for both our science of neurootology as well as our fine art of “NARSOLG” are the restrictions of the world around the humans within their “sensorial tunnel” and their restless innovative searches as so called “Errantes” for taking a glance through the wall around us. Out of the fences of the sensorial tunnel are not only the “ideas” , which can especially be seen and translated by the genius but also the “adumbrations”, meaning plans and programs guiding the humans and their works from outside of the gigantic world lying behind the walls of all, what we can sense, feel, think, learn or experimentally trace.
