The printed word creates a uniform field, while the electronic word creates a unique field around each object. In other words each object creates its own space.
For instance look at the electronic words on the Forums and read the posts. It is obvious each post is self standing - it creates its own space.
Of course being raised with the printed word, we are constantly looking for the uniform field. In other words we are constantly looking for 'common ground'.
But in the electronic world there is no common ground, rather each of us creates our own space.
So if looking for common ground is driving forward looking in the rear vision mirror, what do we see if we look through the windshield?
We see independent fields, independent spaces, dancing with one another.
So instead of looking for common ground all we need to do is to learn to dance with and to one another.
