Comment on Fluid Cyberspace -> Commitments to Multiple Essentialities

Fast T Wed, Sep 30, 2009
Wildcat, I will try to clear my meaning by applying a quote from your quote:) regarding Intelligence.

Wildcat:
since intelligence is always in motion, by definition it will disturb the silhouette of the context in which and to which it is applied.


That disturbance of the silhouette, is what I referred to as “making over”, and in fact, I understand Commitment to multiple essentialities as intelligence endowed with sufficient stability of direction, simultaneously liberated from the over-ruling historical restraint of self-preservation of single essentiality.

As to the question of mental/emotional requirements in sustaining a coherent multiple essentiality commitment, it surely deserves an extensive attention (hopefully it would be included in your next essay). For starters I'll dare phrase it in metaphorical terms as - The ability to respond to the excitement of one's most intimate and far reaching stretches of self-description, as their edges are engaged; Taking pleasure in partaking of a flow of interactive coherency while it 'shift-shape' on the go.
