I would rather say that digital world has replaced the human with machine based artifact. Some thus now speak in the language of emoji and treat that as a proxy for absence of facial, body language - but an emoji in reality cannot be a replacement for that. We may still be storytellers but we are now telling our stories as conditioned by our new machine language than in human language. Oral transmision required tremendous listening skills coupled with extraordinary felt-experience. It is OK to create a whole new experience through machine artifacts (emojis) but we have not recovered the humanity we lost due to the industrial age - and our new proxy is an enhanced industrial age - should we all not see the irony in that :-)

Very interesting perspective. So the art of storytelling as a way to transmit history and sense of family has not translated to the digital world. My personal thoughts even as i am writing this comment is that i had time to think about my response without the facial, body language of you sitting across from me. Giving me q's of understanding, disagreement or understanding. Maybe, changing the outcome of the thought progression and understanding completely. Great point to ponder. Just because we communicate a whole lot digitally doesn't translate to our message being received. Secondarily we get to use time to hide our weaknesses in position, while in a personal setting we can't hide.

I celebrate difference because we learn from people different from us, but people are just one component of nature and thus embracing diversity begins from the source and that inner connect to our own True North - that is what connects me to the diversity I am able to touch or manage. We are both diverse.

My reflection on your comments stems from two lines in your response CityVP 馃悵 Manjit. These are: Yet the paradox is to avoid compartmentalization and instead foster emergence. The problem is our learning pathways should be our own DNA but we conflate or compare with others and that diminishes us or at least creates an unnecessary social anxiety.. As long as we allow the collision of ideas hosted in different "compartments" we may run into serendipity and we may run into new emergence. I care for working in comfort and relaxed mind so that ideas may interact. Your style may be different from my style of thinking (in fact, they are different". This way we create what I call"gaps in styles of thinking". Gaps create tension and creative tension leads to creative solutions. I believe that your comment here deserves thorough attention as it explains the due respect to our differences in a positive way.

I enjoy people and building relationships, but after a lot of engagement, then I like to have solitude for introspection and reflection. Like CityVP 馃悵 Manjit, I also like time for reading and, like you, time to write.

"We are constantly fearing death rather than constantly loving life and so at the root of that which should be HOME" I went through a constant barrage of death-fearing in my thirties. It came to a point that I realized that as long as I feared death, I would never live.

Breathing together Joel Anderson is what is most important, your wife, your two daughters, your wife's sister, her husband, their mother - a time to breath together and that is the only wall of humanity we can erect that builds the fortress required at times like this. Fear is hardest in not knowing, but once what we fear has occurred, the certainty is something we can hold - it is the unknown that troubles us most. Prayer does remove some of this vacuum, but breath, that is a collective act to share with the living as all of you pay respects to the loved one that has passed. At the moment of greatest despair comes the recognition of greatest love, those immediately around you, the blessing of having their breath and the strength that you are finding to come through this shared difficulty. You are not on your own because you have told me in your response the blessing of your own family. The father who has passed has joined the ranks of ancestors but in you honouring him and paying your respects, you strengthen in your collective breath. It is impossible for human beings to breath alone on this Earth when we breath the same air. We are not astronauts trapped in space - we are human beings on Earth, with the blessings of knowing the very people who we now say goodbye to and yet still unite in our breath together. There will be calmer and sunnier times but we are not governed by our self at these times, these are the moments that bind us human beings and in that is the greatest blessing.
