Welcome to my TEDxTalk Ep.0: And suddenly, I saw myself through your eyes

My name is Katerina and, in my journey as a human so far, I have understood a few things. So here I am in front of my computer screen typing these words to make my own attempt to talk to you about two of them: moments and people. Or rather, better, to talk to you about two united in one; a moment ...

IRIS: coloring the rainbow

November 2021. In some forgotten offices a name suddenly breaks the silence: "Iris!" a voice is heard from somewhere in the background. They look at each other for a moment.

''The masks have fallen'' Photo-Episode B, pt.3

The indeterminate figure approached her, sitting by her side. Her facial features were absent. In their place there was a void instead. An empty anthropomorphic canvas, a terrifyingly scarce image.

Its four walls had been replaced by rows of trees that spread out for as long as she could see. Its high and ornate ceiling had given its place to the...

''The masks have fallen'' Photo-Episode B, pt.1

It was one of those spring days where nature itself seemed to conspire for your happiness. Rosalia woke up quite early that morning, she is one of those people who enjoy their routine and find relief in the eternal repetition of their movements. So she made her favorite drink, black tea with two spo...

Overthinking my overthinking

Overthinking. A rather imaginative term to describe excessive thinking. Or perhaps even better I would say, overanalyzing. Over everything. You are considering and calculating every parameter in a way that probably stresses-confuses-harms you rather than leads you to a conclusion. And the truth is...

The magic of being human

A while ago, I found myself in a place with people from at least 20 different countries and I immediately thought that the biggest thing that separated us was the language barrier. Nevertheless, we were all willing to overcome this obstacle and willing to connect, get to know each other, exchange id...

We are Schrödinger's cats with unlimited capabilities

I am not a physicist, especially a quantum physicist, but I do have a fondness for cats and a love for Schrödinger’s cat, especially for what it represents, metaphorically speaking.

Schrödinger's cat is a mental experiment, also described as a paradox. It was invented by the Austrian physicist Erwi...
