Research Method in this practical exploring:

In this practical exploring, what is the most important that my physical condition, during medical treatment and I couldn't use my right hand in 2016. I had unusual pain. I had to explain the doctor, but I could not to describe, in doing so, I started to draw for regarding to the pain in my body from time to time.

I had to take a drug, but it was a very little, because I didn't want to take it much and ask the doctors for another possiblity of the medical treatment. I discussed with the doctors about the quantity of drug and my body capacity, thereby they examined my body (organ), before to start the medical treatment. After the medical examination and the diagnosis, I agreed with their medical treatment for next two years. Without any operations, it was successful.

Therefore the medical datas are my personal datas that are only for a paper in the academic research. Later, I'd like to write a paper in the subject of art and medicine in terms of the subject of the research by Thomas Fuchs. I cannot believe the young generation of the world politic and economic, due to today's fascistic politicians in the world are younger than me/us. I think that I (we) have to organise for my generation by myself (ourself), when we would be old, such as medical care for dementia. Art is through life and into the life, I mean that Art is not Technology, as well Technology is not the art.

1. Collage: On cemical reaction in the different conditions, its time and space.

Nature and its randomly, and the process of how to control (Human's idea)

2. Drawing: Self-observation of own body. (Pain, in the communication with the brain, how I recognise it.)

**Reductionism** is any of several related philosophical ideas regarding the associations between phenomena which can be described in terms of other simpler or more fundamental phenomena.^{[1]}

*The Oxford Companion to Philosophy* suggests that reductionism is "one of the most used and abused terms in the philosophical lexicon" and suggests a three part division:^{[2]}

**Ontological reductionism**: a belief that the whole of reality consists of a minimal number of parts.**Methodological reductionism**: the scientific attempt to provide explanation in terms of ever smaller entities.**Theory reductionism**: the suggestion that a newer theory does not replace or absorb an older one, but reduces it to more basic terms. Theory reduction itself is divisible into three parts: translation, derivation and explanation.^{[3]}

Reductionism can be applied to any phenomenon, including objects, explanations, theories, and meanings.^{[3]}^{[4]}^{[5]}

Phi in our daily life:

- A sentence in first-order logic.

- In perceptual psychology, the phi phenomenon is the apparent motion caused by the successive viewing of stationary objects, such as the frames of a motion picture.

- In probability theory, *φ*_{X}(*t*) = E[*e*^{itX}] is the characteristic function of a random variable *X*.

- An angle, typically the second angle mentioned, after *θ* (theta). Especially:

- The argument of a complex number.
- The phase of a wave in signal processing.
- In spherical coordinates, mathematicians usually refer to phi as the polar angle (from the
*z*-axis). The convention in physics is to use phi as the azimuthal angle (from the*x*-axis). - One of the dihedral angles in the backbones of proteins in a Ramachandran plot
- Internal or effective angle of friction.

- Magnetic flux in physics

- The letter phi is commonly used in physics to represent wave functions in quantum mechanics, such as in the Schrödinger equation and bra–ket notation: ⟨ ϕ | ψ ⟩ {\displaystyle \langle \phi |\psi \rangle } .

- The golden ratio 1 + 5 2 ≈ {\displaystyle {\tfrac {1+{\sqrt {5}}}{2}}\approx } 1.618033988749894848204586834... in mathematics, art, and architecture.

- Euler's totient function*φ*(*n*) in number theory; also called *Euler's phi function*.

- The cyclotomic polynomial functions Φ_{n}(*x*) of algebra.

- In algebra, group or ringhomomorphisms

- In probability theory, *ϕ*(*x*) = (2π)^{−1⁄2}*e*^{−x²/2} is the probability density function of the normal distribution.
