We bite on the temptation of the moment. Our minds, our bodies and our hearts get carried away and cast our Micro-cosmos into chaos. We call this state identification, because it is characterized by a misplaced sense of identity, by mistakenly calling the impulse of the moment “I.” But the ways down and up are the same, and the same three brains help us restore order in the Micro-cosmos. In this tutorial we will experiment with reversing the fall into identification. We will return to the Basilica of San Marco in Venice and examine a lesser-known episode from the Genesis creation that is instrumental in this process, that of Adam naming the animals. And we will set an exercise to name the temptation of the moment, throughout as many moments of our day as possible, separating our Mind from identification, through naming.
