This introduction to this pluridisciplinary meeting is mainly devoted to celebrate two exceptional pluridisciplinary scientists. Fernand Braudel was simultaneously a historian, geographer, sociologist and economist. The neurophysiologist Jean Delacour was open to other disciplines from philosophy to physics. Braudel’s global point of view of history created new fields in human sciences, paving the way for new active research. For instance, the emergence of the very singular development of world-cities remains to be well understood from detailed network analysis in order to find the driving process of such an emergent deep localization. In a similar way, Delacour’s physiological evidence for unconscious mind resulting from energy saving during sleep remains to be explored in details both for humans and for animals with expected consequences for managing neural networks as well as for quantum computing, and for poetry. The papers of this meeting are shortly introduced.
