“‘The computer is the greatest projective system* ever created’, Bales said to me. Meaning that anyone looking at the computer would think they were seeing reality, but would see something projected from their own mind.
*A projective system is something which, like a Rorschach test, invites people to project on it their own personalities and ideas, often unwittingly.
For fifty years since then, I have marveled at how everyone projects onto the computer their own issues and concerns and personality.
I did too.” – Ted Nelson, Possiplex
