writer's can go to practice spiritual/literary improvisations. I like site
as it is now but it does feel a little divided. It is similar to how I feel
about television in America. There are lots of choices but as for one
universal spiritual experience, I don't think that is possible here yet.
There are some folders that fit the description I have mentioned above
However it does not take long for a conversation to get imprinted on
thereby creating an unconscious exclusionary atmosphere should one
choose not to recognize the patterns created by these temporary imprints.
I might suggest having folders that are designed more like communicative
events. For example, why not try a folder where members check into a
conversation and starting from that joining period they get to share
inside an equal ratio according to whatever members are participating
in a 24 hour period.
Instead of time or ambition determining what member share next,
fair ratios according to participating members inside a 24 hour time
period would determine the continuity of the conversation. Inside certain
active folders, it is theoretically possible that a conversation could take place
in a manner that resembles a conversation that is taking place in real time.
In order for this to occur perhaps certain planned events would need
to take place similar to a popular t.v. show. The only prerequite would
be fair ratios. This is only way that a persons listening skills can be
put to good use. I would not suggest making major changes. But perhaps
start with one or maybe two experimental folders.
Yes there are brilliant people the participate in these conversations
as they are now. But if nothing changes and we do not challenge
our listening skills every thing becomes digressionary excersice. No one
is really accountable for anything. If one conversation gets sour, one simply
moves onto another conversation never really following the conversaton's thoughts
all the way through. Krishna Murti talked about this kind of thing all the time.
And there is no greater spriritual teacher that I can think of than he.
Thanks for letting me share my suggestions.
I see what you're driving at here and if others express an interest in this and can form a consensus around a vision for it I'd be willing to support it similar to the NAT implementation.
What I'd point out to you is that this happens somewhat naturally at the moment as things are. Just because there are fewer replies to a thread such as this one doesn't mean that users don't appreciate the experience of it any the less, and I can tell you, from a personal perspective, that it's really quite the opposite.
