César Baldaccini presents an ode to the thumb: le pouce.

César Baldaccini presents an ode to the thumb: le pouce.

César Baldaccini presents an ode to: ‘the thumb’ [le pouce]:

“The hand without a thumb is at worst nothing but an animated fish-slice, and at best a pair of forcepts whose points don’t meet properly.

Whithout the thumb the hand is put back 60 million years in evolutionary terms to a stage when the thumb hand no independent movement and was just another digit.”

Quote by: John Napier

In the summer of 2008 one hundred works of the French sculptor César Baldaccini were exhibited from early July till the end of october at ‘la Fondation Cartier’ for Contemporary Art, featured by Jean Nouvel, architect of the building and friend of the famous artist.

The visitors were able to discover many of César’s famous thumbs, made by the artist with various materials including: bronze, Baccarat crystal, stainless steel, aluminum and pink marble.

The Alien Hand Syndrome – scary stories about hands & brain damage

The Halloween season is known as THE time for psycho-thriller and horror movies. Maybe, fans of such movies should consider delving into some medical literature to get the best scary stories. The “Alien Hand Syndrome” is always featured with such stories.

People who have the Alien Hand Syndrome have basically no voluntary control over one of their hands.

THE ALIEN HAND SYNDROME & BRAIN DAMAGE

Although this phenomenon is not particularly hazardous to the patients’ health, it does cause a lot mental frustration. Some patients even go as far as associating a different personality, and sometimes even a different name, with the hand: like they are having a bionic hand out of control. The seemingly supernatural disorder is caused by a few broken connections in the brain. Brain damage can be caused by a variety of factors including accidents, strokes, and brain hemorrhages. One of the causes of alien hand syndrome is damage to the corpus callosum of the brain. The corpus callosum connects the two halves of the brain and helps the two halves communicate with one another. Damage to the posterior regions (backside) of the brain show yet another set of symptoms. The alien hands in such cases tend to stray away from anything in the environment and show uncoordinated movements.

As of now, there isn’t any treatment for this disorder, but in many cases, the symptoms seem to diminish if the alien hand is kept occupied with some task. For patients with the obsessive grasping disorder, if the hand is made to hold an object like a cane at all times, it no longer attempts to grasp other objects. However, patients still have to cope with the perpetual loss of one hand as the alien hand cannot be used to perform any meaningful tasks.

In the “Alien Hand Syndrome” is the brain not always in control over the hands:

Scientific Hand Reading & Handshake Knowledge.

Irma de NaGy presents: ‘Handshake Knowledge’ & Scientific Hand Reading:

In 2008 Xlibris presented two books of Irma de NaGy, who was a student of the famous US. palmist William G. Benham.

Irma De Nagy’s books ‘Scientific Hand Reading’ & ‘Handshake Knowlegde’ provides more insight about the fascinating modern science hand reading & the basic principles of palmistry.

With over 1900 illustrations to help facilitate the reading of hands, ‘Scientific Hand Reading’ makes it easy for anyone to learn the basics of reading hands.

In 1952, Hungarian hand reader Irma de NaGy graduated from palmist Dr. William G. Benham’s New York Institute for Vocational Guidance, which covered the scientific study of human hands. Benham is the author of the so-called ‘bible of palmistry’: The Benham Book of Palmistry.

The bionic hand.

10 Milestones of the bionic hand:

Only a few weeks ago TIME presented the i-LIMB hand as one of 2008 best inventions. However, a review of the ‘bionic’ developments during the past decennium shows that the ‘bionic hand’ has been reïnvented over and over again!

Some of the inventors have stated that their ‘bionic hand’ was inspired by the Star Wars & Star Trek science fiction movies. The pictures on the left include the ‘bionic arm’ (robot arm) and the ‘i-LIMB hand’

NEXT NATURE HANDS

From the Star Wars ‘bionic hand’ to Time’s 2008 best inventions!!

Take a look at the picture below. It appears obvious that the left one could be described as a NEXT NATURE ‘bionic hand’, however, the truth is that both hands are examples of the ‘FluidHand’!

The hands of Albert Einstein.

The hands of Albert Einstein.

The hands of Albert Einstein:

What do the hands of Albert Einstein reveal about his IQ, his suspected autism & his presumed left-handedness?’ The handprints were made in 1930 by Marianne Raschig, a palmist from Germany, who published the hands in her book Hand und Persönlichkeit.

Let’s take a look at these very interesting high-quality handprints of Alber Einstein.

EINSTEIN & HIS HIGH IQ

Obviously there is little doubt that Albert Einstein had a high IQ – for Einstein has become a classic example of ‘genius’. Nevertheless, it is very hard to describe how high Einstein’s IQ really was. 160? 190? He’s IQ is unknown, and we’ll probably never know how high Einstein’s IQ really was.

What do Albert Einstein’s hands reveal about his IQ? In general, few researchers & palmists believe that high IQ can be recognized by certain hand features. Chirologist Arnold Holtzman described a few years ago that Einstein’s very short fingers (especially in his right hand – see the picture below) are related to Einstein’s genius. Holtzman writes in his book Psychodiagnostic Chirology (page 81) about short fingers: ‘individual intuitive faculties’ and ‘a cognitive style where invention expands’. Nevertheless, so far there appears to be no scientific evidence for relating Einstein’s short fingers to his high IQ.

EINSTEIN & HIS SUSPECTED AUTISM

UK researchers have said that they believe that Einstein was likely an example of Asperger syndrome (the high functioning variant of autism).

What do Albert Einstein’s hands reveal about his suspect autism? The past few decades of scientific research indicate that a ‘low 2D:4D finger ratio’ could be one of the most significant hand features related to autism. And the high quality handprints of Einstein’s hands show that Einstein had a ‘digit ratio’ of about 0.93 – just below threshold which is often seen in the hands of people who have autism or Aspergers syndrome: digit ratio = 0.94 or lower. Confirming evidence for the UK researchers who believe that Einstein had autism.

EINSTEIN & HIS PRESUMMED LEFT-HANDEDNESS

Albert Einstein was a famous ‘lefty’. He wrote with his right hand, however many believe that Einstein was a lefty who was forced to write with his right hand. Einstein is known for using his left hand a lot (for example: he smoked his pipe often with his left hand).

What do Albert Einstein’s hands reveal about his presumed left handedness? A comparison between the finger length of the right hand and the left hand reveals that the fingers of Albert Einstein’s left hand are rather remarkable longer. The biggest R-L difference can be observed in the middle finger: see the picture below. Dutch research on left handedness has indicated that when the longer fingers on the left hand are often observed in left handed people.

Barack Obama: hand reading of power

Barack Obama will soon get his hands on the most powerful job in the Western world. And those hands might reveal a lot about what Barack Obama will do with the power in his hands. Lori Reid, an expert author in hand reading & palmistry, has examined the hand lines on Barack Obama’s hand palm, as well as the length and width of his fingers – this hand reader believes she has Obama’s personality all worked out.

Miss Reid says that Mr Obama’s left hand has extraordinarily long fingers and a long palm. “This hand shape fits into a category known as The Water Hand and is a common feature of artists, writers and thinkers”, she says. In the full article – see the first article below – Lori Reid makes 18 comments about Barack Obama’s left hand (Obama is left-handed) – in which she explains how Obama will likely use his power!

    The simian line is often found in Down syndrome, but also frequently seen in Asian populations.

    The simian line is often found in Down syndrome, but also frequently seen in Asian populations.

    The simian line

    The simian line is a ‘notorious’ hand crease and well-known for it’s significance in Down’s syndrome – more than half of these people have a simian line in 1 or both hands, while only about 1% of healthy populations have a simian line. Nevertheless, this line is also frequently observed in the hands of certain ethnic population – especially in Asians!

    In 1866, R.L. Down discovered in 1906 the relationship between the simian crease and Down’s syndrome. The simian line is also know as: the ‘simian crease’ or ‘single palmar transverse crease’.

    ‘Healthy hands’ with the simian line usually do not have the other stereotypical hand features related related to Down syndrome are missing (examples of other Down syndrome-related hand features are: a short thumb, curved little finger, certain dermatoglyphic patterns in the palm and fingerprints).

    In some (Asian) populations is extraordinary frequently seen, such as: Pygmies: 34.7 %; Gypsies: 14.3 %; Chinese: 13.0 %; Koreans: 11.2 % – more percentages are presented in the full article.
