    Interesting... how does this "new" environment change our perception of space?
    we live in 'real' old space while we surfing 'virtual' new space and PLACE.
    PLACE ? ? ? ? ? Virtual place ???

    Place of Cyberspace?????

    By its very nature there is no place of cyberspace.
    In fact, there is no space in cyberspace. It is a very complex
    binary language which requires a computer screen to even
    translate in to a comprensible meduim. Sort of a 3d number grid in
    a bunch of boxes strung across the world. The space of the computer
    screen is its place, so the location of your screen has far more place
    than what it shows. Any changes to our perception of
    space have already occured through the globalization of communication through
    the telephone and television. We have collapsed the vastness of the
    globe through a box, but do we percieve the box or screen through
    the full range of perception that we observe space through? I am almost
    a 'cyber addict' so I an by no means turning on linked computer technology,
    but we take it far many overtones of any actual space.
    We can discuss phenomenolgy, but not in relation to computers.

    There is no space in cyberspace.
    There is no reality in virtual reality.

    About my own message, sorry for that nonsense sentence, my mind was running faster then my typing ability.

    We should start a discussion of exactly what phenomology is, then go from there.I was told that it was like two sides of a river, and phenomonolgy is the bridge that linke them. To me, it is closer to the event which precipitates an experience, or the events which lead to the event which we percieve, along with the tools wee use to percieve it and the meaning we give to the preception.

    To tell the truth, it seems like a poorly understood concept, often abused, and I do not quite grasp it either.
