       hello, everyone - i found Judy's email posting fascinating, both
for the lengthy reference to Bateson, who i admire, and for the continued
silence in response to her posting. i went back to Bateson's "Steps to an
ecology of mind" and refresh my memory about his take on communication. in
the chapter on Double Bind, Bateson points out that messages carrry multiple
meanings, and that while one of the meanings is found in the content of the
message, another message is about the relationship between the
communicators. it's my take that the message about the relationship in
regards to the silence regarding Judy's posting is that she doesn't count.
looking at the pattern of communication here on xmca, with a few exceptions,
such as Mike who nearly always responds to each person, the pattern is a few
guys talking to a few guys, and ignoring those who .... who what? i can
only observe the silence, and the way the relationship is constructed -
the whys i've not a clue about.

  I am egotistical enough to wonder if it was my last message that brought
  this list to a resounding silence....

  If my version of GBs attempt to bring the sacred to center stage in
  as an object of activity induced any response, I'm curious to know what it
  was. Perhaps I (mis)represented the project, or perhaps the project
  misrepresents the do-able, or misses the practical altogether? I ask
  I am still thinking about the curricular questions...
