#32, "Community"


I hope that one of our conversations will focus on community--what we think it is; if it exists in the US today and if so, where; do we need it; hunger for it. I am wondering whether it can be brought into existence via the computer and discussion forums like this.

What degree of intimacy is needed in a community? And what's love got to do with it? And what is its economic shape? I've often thought that having a shared ritual like Proprioceptive Writing was a crucial element. I know that when people write together proprioceptively (and then read their Writes) one feels a kind of intimacy that is rather amazing, given how little has gone on. All you've done is write and read and listen. That listening element is pretty crucial, that's for sure. (One philosopher defined thinking as reverential listening.)

Well, this is a beginning.
