This subreddit is dedicated to the BioShock game series.. So I just finished Infinite for the first time and was thinking back to the quote at the beginning of the game from Rosalind Lutece, “The mind of the subject will desperately struggle to create memories where none exist…”
Apologies if this has been previously asked and answered but I couldn’t find anything online.
You are reading: “The mind of the subject will desperately struggle to create memories where none exist”. This is a “hot” topic with 3,300,000 searches/month
It refers to how Booker’s memories adapt to the new reality when going through a Tear, like for instance when Booker “remembers” burning down …. “The mind of the subject will desperately struggle to create …
Lutece: “The mind of the subject will desperately …. Lutece — ‘The mind of the subject will desperately struggle to create memories where none exist…’
Released this morning by developer Irrational Games, this new video shows us the first five minutes of BioShock Infinite.. Lutece from his 1889 book Barrier to Trans-Dimensional Travel:
It can go without saying, but we’ll say it anyway, that this is a spoiler-laden video. After all, it shows the first five minutes of the game.
|Last appearance||BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode Two (2014)|. Robert Lutece and Rosalind Lutece, collectively known as the Lutece twins, are a duo of characters from the BioShock video game series created by Ken Levine, published by 2K Games
By the game’s end, both characters are eventually revealed to share no family relations, and are in fact parallel universe versions of the same individual. Robert and Rosalind are voiced by Oliver Vaquer and Jennifer Hale respectively
Both characters as well as their voice actors have received a generally positive reception, and are frequently cited as one of the memorable aspects of Infinite by critics. Due to the vital role they play in the story of Infinite as the illustrators for some of its underlying themes, particularly the concept of “constants and variables”, the Lutece twins have been extensively discussed in published writings which explore and discuss the aforementioned themes.
So you’ve finished BioShock Infinite, and you probably have some questions. The story is actually quite straightforward when you break it down, but some details are either left ambiguous, or hidden away in Voxophones
Remember, though – some of this is speculation, or our personal interpretation. “What separates us now but a single chromosome?” asks Rosalind in a Voxophone found in Emporia
During her experiments she met a male version of herself from another universe, Robert, whom she refers to as her ‘brother’. Together, they’re incredibly powerful, and able to travel between universes freely.
– “When I was a girl, I dreamt of standing in a room looking at a girl who was and was not myself, who stood looking at another girl, who also was and was not myself. Rosalind Lutece is a quantum physicist in BioShock Infinite, who wrote books about scientific studies on alternate universes
From a young age, Rosalind was curious about the possibility of multiple realities and decided she wanted to be a physicist. Many years later, in the course of experimentation with atoms, she was able to indefinitely suspend an atom in midair. Her colleagues referred to the process as “quantum levitation,” while Rosalind herself dubbed it the “Lutece Field.” She began to wonder about the possibility of suspending larger objects, up to and including a city.
Comstock agreed to fund Rosalind’s continued research into the Lutece Field in return for her help constructing a floating city which he had seen in a premonition.. Continued experimentation with the Lutece Field led to Rosalind’s first interaction with Robert Lutece, a male version of herself in an alternate reality
|Possible Inspiration||Rosalind Franklin (unconfirmed)|. Rosalind Lutece is quoted at the very beginning of BioShock Infinite as saying “The mind of the subject will desperately struggle to create memories where none exist…”
The quote comes from Lutece’s book Barriers to Trans-Dimensional Travel, written in 1889.. In December 2012, Ken Levine called Lutece one of his favorite characters during an “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit
The two are highly unusual and seem to possess knowledge that neither Booker DeWitt or Elizabeth do, and both seem to always know what the other is about to say, constantly finishing each other’s sentences.. Rosalind is also one of the individuals responsible for giving the city of Columbia its wings
Using a quote by another person at the beginning of your writing tends to come off as pretentious more often than not. While I love quotes, it is practically cheating using another person’s words
This way you’ll think that I am well versed in early 1900s poetry. I of course just used Google to find a quote about ‘beginning’ and know nothing about anything
I did find it interesting that Gibran’s most famous work is entitled The Prophet. I had no idea there was a book about trans-dimensional travel written in 1889 and I’m certainly not familiar with the author
– “The mind of the subject will desperately struggle to create memories where none exist…”. Lutece, Barriers to Trans-Dimensional Travel, 1889[src]
Throughout the game, Robert and his female counterpart Rosalind escort Booker DeWitt to and across the city of Columbia, offering him aid. Though the Luteces’ actions mainly help Booker, they once aided Zachary Hale Comstock, supplying him with the technology necessary for the creation of Columbia.
He was contacted by Rosalind Lutece, his female counterpart from an alternate reality and “sister,” after she discovered a way to mechanically engineer “Tears” in her world and across multiple universes. The two then correspondingly opened a Tear between their realities so they could meet face to face
Use the adjective resolute to describe a purposeful and determined person, someone who wants to do something very much, and won’t let anything get in the way.. “Milo thought for just a moment and then, with a resolute ‘I shall,’ volunteered to go,” Norton Juster writes in the classic children’s novel The Phantom Tollbooth
Some near-synonyms for this word include resolved, adamant, unswerving, and unwavering. If you make a “resolute refusal” of something, you’re declaring you don’t like it and never will.

Mind-body Dualism: A critique from a Health Perspective**. Philosophical theory about the nature of human beings has far reaching consequences on our understanding of various issues faced by them
The cause of concern is that this theoretical framework rarely gets questioned despite its inherent limitations and self-defeating consequences, leading to crisis in the concerned field. The field, which is facing crisis today, is that of medicine, and the paradigmatic stance that is responsible for the crisis is Cartesian dualism—a view that mind and body are essentially separate entities
Focusing more closely on how disease, health and treatment are defined through this position, the paper builds up its critique by throwing light on its accomplishments, limitations and self-defeating consequences. The paper also seeks to understand why this dualism is still alive despite its disavowal from philosophers, health practitioners and lay people.
– Signs that Say What You Want Them To Say and Not Signs that Say What Someone Else Wants You To Say. Gillian Wearing first attracted public acclaim when she exhibited this series of photographs at City Racing, a small artist-run gallery in London in 1993
Standing in a busy area of South London, Wearing stopped passers-by and asked them to write down what was on their mind. With their permission, she then photographed them holding their statement
The complete series of Signs is comprised of over fifty colour photographs. A broad cross-section of people participated in the photographs and the series provides a fascinating social and historical document
What Exactly Is Unrequited Love — And Is It A Bad Thing?. Have you ever had strong feelings for someone who didn’t feel the same way about you? That wistful, heartbreaking experience is sometimes called unrequited love—but is it the same as real love?
The word requite literally means to return or to repay. The term unrequited love, in particular, carries an intentionally dramatic or romantic connotation to it, in part because the phrase appears so often throughout classic literature and poetry and continues to be a popular theme in books, movies, and music today.
“While it commonly occurs between a person who falls in love with someone who is physically or emotionally unavailable, it can also occur between two friends who share a deep level of intimacy,” licensed marriage and family therapist Weena Cullins, LCMFT, tells mbg. “One friend’s feelings may shift from platonic to romantic while the other friend’s feelings remain compartmentalized.”
BRAIN, MIND, AND BODY IN THE HEALING OF TRAUMABuy on Amazon →. The Body Keeps the Score is the inspiring story of how a group of therapists and scientists— together with their courageous and memorable patients—has struggled to integrate recent advances in brain science, attachment research, and body awareness into treatments that can free trauma survivors from the tyranny of the past
Drawing on more than thirty years at the forefront of research and clinical practice, Bessel van der Kolk shows that the terror and isolation at the core of trauma literally reshape both brain and body. New insights into our survival instincts explain why traumatized people experience incomprehensible anxiety and numbing and intolerable rage, and how trauma affects their capacity to concentrate, to remember, to form trusting relationships, and even to feel at home in their own bodies
What distinguishes THE BODY KEEPS THE SCORE is that the author is both a scientific researcher with a long history of measuring the effect of trauma on brain function, memory, and treatment outcomes, and an active therapist who keeps learning from his patients what benefits them most. This makes for deeply personal, analytic, and highly readable (not to mention incredibly moving) approach to the topic of trauma recovery.
The Existential Theme in Jack London’s “To Build A Fire”. Jack London’s short story, “To Build a Fire,” is the tragic tale of a man who decides to travel alone through the hostile environment of the Yukon in sub-freeing temperatures and falls victim to the unrelenting and unforgiving power of nature
Because of the severity of the cold, some “one hundred and seven degrees below [the] freezing point,” the man’s life depends upon his ability to promptly light a fire to keep his feet from freezing (122-23). After one, half-successful fire-starting endeavor, and several other pitiful attempts, the hopelessness of the man’s lone struggle against the hostile environment of the Yukon begins to become apparent
The story’s central theme is one portrayed by many existentialist writers—that man lives a solitary existence which is subject to the relentless, unforgiving forces of nature; an ever so subtle part of this theme is that it is man’s goal to find meaning in his existence.. The word existentialist, as well as the subject of existentialism itself, evades definition
Arnold Brooks, a graduate student at the University of Chicago, came to Agnes Callard’s office hours every week to talk about Aristotle. At the last session of the quarter, in the spring of 2011, they discussed Aristotle’s treatise Metaphysics, and what it means to be one—as opposed to more than one
Agnes was the only person he’d ever met who seemed to feel the same way.. Agnes specializes in ancient philosophy and ethics, but she is also a public philosopher, writing popular essays about experiences—such as jealousy, parenting, and anger—that feel to her like “dissociated matter,” falling outside the realm of existing theories
It seems to her that we are all intuitively copying one another, adopting the same set of arbitrary behaviors and values, as if by osmosis. “How has it come to pass,” she writes, “that we take ourselves to have any inkling at all about how to live?”

Idealism in philosophy, also known as philosophical idealism or metaphysical idealism, is the set of metaphysical perspectives asserting that, most fundamentally, reality is equivalent to mind, spirit, or consciousness; that reality is entirely a mental construct; or that ideas are the highest form of reality or have the greatest claim to being considered “real”. The radical latter view is often first credited to the Ancient Greek philosopher Plato as part of a theory now known as Platonic idealism. Other than in some Western philosophy, idealism also appears in some Indian philosophy, namely in Vedanta, one of the orthodox schools of Hindu philosophy, and in some streams of Buddhism.
In fact, in Berkeley’s thinking, a single eternal mind keeps all of physical reality stable, and this is God. By contrast, Immanuel Kant said that idealism “does not concern the existence of things,” but that “our modes of representation” of things such as space and time are not “determinations that belong to things in themselves,” but are essential features of the human mind. Thus, Kant’s transcendental idealism proposes that objects of experience rely upon their existence in the human mind that perceives the objects, and that the nature of the object-in-itself is external to human experience, unable to be conceived without the application of categories, which give structure to the human experience of reality.
Ontologically, idealism asserts that the existence of things depends upon the human mind; thus, ontological idealism rejects the perspectives of physicalism and dualism, because neither perspective gives ontological priority to the human mind. In contrast to materialism, idealism asserts the primacy of consciousness as the origin and prerequisite of phenomena

Whether someone begins a sentence with, “Mr Speaker…” or ends one with “innit?” tells us a huge amount about who they are, where they’re from and even what they’re doing. Unfortunately, as civil servants we are serial abusers of that power.
Their report found that too much of our writing was either not understood, greeted with cynicism, found irrelevant or just plain boring.. Only this month, in a response to a consultation on changes to NHS pensions, one pension scheme member said:
While hope is an undoubtedly personal experience and one that can be challenging to define, the value and positive impact hope can have on human life is widely recognized and difficult to ignore.. People often speak about hope strengthening their resolve and accompanying them even in their darkest hour; guiding them through seemingly desperate circumstances.
Hope gives people a reason to continue fighting and believing that their current circumstances will improve, despite the unpredictable nature of human existence.. As psychologist and renowned hope researcher Charles Snyder et al
