Our planet has dived inside symmetry and asymmetry waves. The new interactive telecommunication systems in real time promote a profound degree of symmetry, through free and practically immediate communication.
The word communication launches its roots in the Indo European *mei, that indicated the idea of exchange. It passed to the Greek ameibein, which means exchange and correspondence.
The Latin expression meare meant to go or to pass, from where meatus appeared, indicating road, passage. Many words appeared from meare, like permeare indicating the idea of permeability - to pass through. With the inclusion of the particle g, meare generated migrare, showing the idea of migration, of the passage of people between different places. Transforming itself in munera, it passed to indicate the offering of something that is transferred to another person, like a gift to someone. From that we have the words remuneration, which means - literally - a double offering; immunity that indicates who is free from the obligation to give something; or even municipal that originally indicated the citizen, who must give something to the community. The word community itself means the ensemble of people who contribute with something. Communication indicates, literally, the phenomenon produced by people who, among themselves, dynamically exchange things. Only in the 14th century it appeared with the sense to be something in common to all.
Our world has lived an era of communication. This phenomenon, dealing with the most diverse languages, has also produced immense inequalities, profound asymmetries.
ISA - International Symmetry Association, with headquarters in Budapest, Hungary, has organised diverse important events like the 2nd Symmetry Festival and the supreMADIsm Festival. It is associated to the Symmetrion Institute and to the International Symmetry Foundation, having the periodic publishing of the journal Symmetry and Culture.
The Arts, Sciences and Technology Foundation - Observatory, has as mission the promotion of transdisciplinary, transnational and transcultural projects.
In association with ISA, from Budapest, the FACTO - Arts, Sciences and Technology Foundation - Observatory, in Trancoso, Portugal, pass to promote annually the International Meeting OREZ - Rupture and Tradition.
Every year, in the month of April, it will be held in Trancoso, Portugal, the International Meeting OREZ - Rupture and Tradition, having the participation of scientists, artists and thinkers from diverse countries.
In the first year of the Meeting - OREZ 1 - Rupture and Tradition 1 - the participants will represent Portugal, Hungary, France, Switzerland, the United States, Russia, Sweden, Brazil and England.
With a strong transdisciplinary character, it will be present several fields like education, cognitive systems, design, theory and history of art, mathematics, architecture, music, philosophy of science, neurology and dance.
