Hurna

Our goal is to: “awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”
(Albert Einstein)

Hurna is building a place where people can learn, teach and communicate visually about science.

The purpose of H.urna is to deliver science insights to everyone. It aims a wide range of fields such as informatics, mathematics, physics, electronics etc. Basically, anywhere there is code, equations or symbols that need understanding.

The main idea is that everyone can learn anything and that everything may be learnt. Visualization leverages the human visual system to augment human intellect: we can use it to better understand abstract processes and discover many other things.

The philosophy

Only kindness comes from love
Get together, Get involved, Open sciences

Science allows us to understand the world we live in; It allows us to make this world a better place by helping each other. The way to achieve this is to make Science more transparent.

We believe that sciences should be easy to replicate and open to anyone by nature. Therefore, the tools that are used to do it should themselves also be open. Softwares or discoveries whose are for proprietary products are for us antithetical.

H.urna provides an open platform to delivers science insights to everyone in a fun, creative and interactive way while traditional education systems give rigid structures and expectations. We want to offer social changes with free accessible knowledge.

Hybesis

H.

Hybesis is a word and pseudonyme created by Michael Jeulin-Lagarrigue. It is formed by the contraction of Hybris and Nemesis coming from the Greek mythology.

Hybris is an deity personifying the hybris or hubris. Hubris describes a quality of extreme ego. It typically describes behavior that defies the norms of behavior or challenges the gods. In some traditions the hubris is often associated to Lucifer: the light-bearing.

Nemesis is the goddess who enacted retribution against those who succumb to hubris. Often associated to "equilibrium", it means: "to give what is due", "distribute". In Roman tradition Nemesis means "outrage at an unfair advantage" and is interpreted as a messenger of death sent by the gods as punishment.

Urna

urna

In Buddhist culture Urna symbolizes the third eye also called the mind's eye. Refering to the gate that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness, it provides perception beyond ordinary sight: a state of enlightenment.

One way to think of it is as a “meta” organ that consists of your mind and all of your senses working together as a larger, more powerful sensory organ. Seers use their third eye to understand hidden connections and answer questions.
