    Smile Common Ground?

    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.

    With you Victor, there is no such thing.

    Absolutely, I create my own space and I am looking for dancing partners.

    However most come here to conform to others not to dance with them.

    I can understand that the life task of adolescents is to conform to others. but the joke is that they all think they are individuals, but they are 'individuals' without their own voice, or ideas or even able to create their own space. Their parents create a space for them at home. They are emotionally and financially dependent on their parents and they retail ideas as though they are original.

    Common ground here is simply the graveyard of conformity.

    Why do you invite to a dance without paving the dance floor?

    Common ground is necessary for communication. There needs to be a balance of the known and unknown. It is hard to dance with someone who does not know the steps. And some of us dance a very unfamiliar tango, where a partner is tricky to find unless you teach them the steps.

    A dance floor is continuous, it is one field. But we are now moving into a world of discontinuous fields. So there is no dance floor any more. The floor has disappeared.

    So we are left with each of us creating our own space.

    So we need to know how to relate in discontinuous space with another.

    For instance, you live in a space that is discontinuous from mine in time and location, yet here we are relating quite well.

    Electricity moving at the speed of light enables us to relate from two completely discontinuous spaces.

    The only problem is that our heads haven't caught up with with we are actually doing.

    And when our heads catch up, we will be able to do it better, or as I say, dance to the beat of the electron.
