Caption: Bronze brain sculpture. Man pointing at a bronze sculpture of a human brain set in the pavement outside the Einstein Tower, Potsdam, Germany. This small sculpture was created by Berlin artist Volker Marz and is entitled 'the 3 SEC Bronze Brain - Admonition to the Now - Monument to the continuous present.' It refers to a scientific thesis of Ernst Poppel according to which 'the experience of continuity is based on an illusion. Continuity arises through the networking of contents, which in each case are represented in a time window of three seconds. We reconstruct temporal continuity based on what is represented in the individual islands of consciousness.
