“….relinquishing forever the thought of roaming the earth in the traditional way to effect the regeneration of mankind, a fantasy in my case born from the desire for power, the yearning for mental conquest, which often accompanies the activity of Kundalini in the intellectual center, causing a slightly intoxicated condition of the brain too subtle to be noticed by the subject himself or by his uninformed companions, however erudite and intelligent they may be.”

Great sequence of twitter statuses (all happened close together with only 2 additional statuses I removed to create a focus). If you are not used to twitter – the sequence is in reverse chronological order.

@whatleydude – I have not found a way to represent myself in a 160 character bio and I have stopped looking. I am thankful for a diverse and rich life. No I do not assume that folks browsing profiles have time or patience and yes I know very well that they actually don’t. But that is a choice that  each and every “folk” makes (consciously or not). I choose otherwise (consciously).

@gapingvoid – again you are correct and astute, but attention is a wall not just for the Web 2.0 fantasy (which has and will run into many other walls).

@ajkeen – I think that to connect to what’s really going on we need to set aside the word economy  and look for better pespectives – maybe ecology?

I remember reading quite some time ago about the narrowing effects of Powerpoint on business communications. I get the feeling that twitter is having a similar effect on personal communication?

Yoga philosophy explains that the mind has qualities – and that each quality can be functional or dysfunctional. This perspective supports me. Twitter (like anything else) can be functional/dysfunctional – that is not a quality of twitter but rather a quality of the people who use it.

Thank you all for this charming gathering.

    An excellent response, eloquently put.

    Using Twitter daily as I do, both personally and professionally, I often find myself evangelizing good ‘twitt-etiquette’ and that includes filling out the bio section of their profiles. It would seem from your comment above that it was I that made an assumption, not yourself.

    Apologies,

    J 🙂
