“The integrity of the correspondence.”
and the closed system…
Ahh.. these are the kinds of concepts I live for seeing coming out of someone else’s mouth/fingers/wherever.
Thank you for that. That’s exactly it right there. I love validation.
that’s what amazes me. I used to take it for granted when it happened. I’d toss out a GMTA (an acronym I don’t see as much online as years ago), smile for a moment, and then move on.
But now, I let the sensation linger for a moment. Your timeline, your life, your experiences were all different from mine.
Yet how can it be that we comprehend each other and even with these diverse backgrounds, have come up with the same kinds of notions independently?
Mind-blowing that it happens at all.
my respones to:
“Makes all kinds of sense. And as long as we remember both that the mini-guys we’re communicating with are in our heads but that there are real guys out there that the mini-guys correspond to and we care about the integrity of the correspondence, the system remains open and seems to work quite well, usually. smile emoticonProblems only seem to happen when we deny a part or disconnect them, rendering it a closed system.”
