    I Am Who Am

    When we ask God who he is, he says, "I am who am". And this is the God of literature, the God of the literate, the God of the Bible, who replies.

    But if we ask the electronic God, who are you, we find the answer in the question. And the answer is 'we'. Yes, the electronic God says, "We are".

    And in fact the God of the 'I' died in 1840 as the God of the 'We' was being born on the electric telegraph.

    Yet you reject the experience of the We.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    We prefer to step outside the taken for granted into ecstasy.

    And it is the 'I' that is taken for granted by the literate.

    But comically, every time we take part in the electronic media such as Central, the 'I' becomes absurd, and becomes a laughing stock and the butt of jokes by us.

    But of course the literate don't see it. The literate are blind and numb to the effects of the electronic media.

    I'm nobody! Who are you?
    Are you nobody, too?

    You're wrong though.

    In Genesis and elsewhere in the old testament God speaks as a plurality, using we all the time, its part of the reason for the holy trinity idea, a God of three persons or incarnations.
