Γεωγραφία – Ιστορία

Το Τρίκορφο βρίσκεται σε υψόμετρο 480 μέτρων[1] και στις πλαγιές του όρους Τρίκορφο, στο κέντρο μιας σειράς τριών λόφων, απ΄ όπου πήρε και το νεότερο όνομα (Τρίκορφον = Τρεις κορφές)[3]. Το χωριό είναι ΒΔ του Ευπαλίου, σε απόσταση 9,5 χλμ. και ΒΑ της Ναυπάκτου (12,5 χλμ.)[4]. Το παλαιό όνομά του, μέχρι το 1930, ήταν Βλαχοκάτουνο, σύνθετη λέξη από “βλάχος” και “κάτουνο” που σημαίνει καταυλισμός βλάχων ή ποιμένων. Αναφέρεται ότι σα τελευταία χρόνια της Τουρκοκρατίας αριθμούσε πληθυσμό με 15 οικογένειες[3]. Σήμερα οι κάτοικοί του ασχολούνται κυρίως με την κτηνοτροφία. Γιορτάζει στις 6 Αυγούστου, εορτή της Μεταμορφώσεως του Σωτήρος, σε εξωκλήσι της Μεταμορφώσεως.

Aspects of self:
    1.) Unity – despite having a wide variety of sensory experiences, you feel as if you are a whole.
    2.) Continuity – we experience a continual life.  We can track and remember our progress, which is unique.
    3.) Embodiment – the ability to discriminate “my hand” from “your hand.” However, we can also be tricked into experiencing our body from a different location.  This is also profoundly disturbed by some diseases.
    4.) Privacy – Qualia and mental life are your own, unobservable by others.  You can empathize with someone else, but you can’t physically experience what they do.
    5.) Social embedding – your interpersonal share of histories shapes your emotions and views.  There are many emotions that would make no sense without social embedding.  Such things as pride, arrogance, vanity, etc.  These are all based on social relationships, but sometimes these flow over to inanimate objects.  You get mad at computers, tree branches, the stock market, etc..  Social embedding is also the basis of religion.  The self “needs” to feel part of a social environment in which it can interact. side note to discuss: mental retardation, autism, aspbergers, introversion, etc.???
    6.) Free Will – We don’t yet know how this works, but we do know specific brain regions (supramarginal gyrus, and of course, the anterior cingulate.)  Supramarginal gyrus helps conjure up and envisage different courses of action while the anterior cingulate gives you desire.
    7.) Self-awareness – you are aware of being aware! The whole idea of consciousness!!

Info from Wikipedia:

      “Jonathan Livingston Seagull, written by Richard Bach, is a fable in novella form about a seagull learning about life and flight, and a homily about self-perfection. It was first published in 1970 as “Jonathan Livingston Seagull — a story.” By the end of 1972, over a million copies were in print, Reader’s Digest had published a condensed version, and the book had reached the top of the New York Times Best Seller list, where it remained for 38 weeks. In 1972 and 1973, the book topped the Publishers Weekly list of bestselling novels in the United States. In 2014 the book was reissued as Jonathan Livingston Seagull: The Complete Edition, which added a 17-page fourth part to the story. ”
