Social network - Wikipedia

Social network - Wikipedia:

this idea of social networks has become more important to me over time, although when i first heard about it and began observing my own networks and those around me, i often thought i was off on a tangent that didn't connect with reality. Today, networks seem more tangible given the growth of social media we have seen with the advent of personal computing and smart phones.



The question must be, for everyone, have our networks grown and strengthened? Or are we merely mapping the superficial aspects? I know that Google and Facebook are mapping how we connect, and while it seems a little odd to look at it this way, deeper intelligence emerges from from richer networks.



I think contemplating our own networks in a pluralistic mechanical way and exploring the real nature of our connections will in the long run, help us as people individually, and in the wider schemas of society, civilization, and the natural world.

To make meaning and sense out of it, we will need to explore different institutions and create new models for education and learning. The education system and our information media function a bit like a factory or a retail outlet--churning out standardized students and distributing mass produced facts, alternative facts, and other parcels of concept which fail utterly at integrating wholly with the world.



If, our climate, of mood disorders, addictions and pathological politics, has its roots in how we form attachments as children  then grasp of  attachment theory and Social Networks offers a promising way towards recovery and building a stronger healthier world.

thought for the day

When a job still looked like a mere means of getting money rather than an opportunity for service, when the acquisition of money for financial independence looked more important than a right dependence upon God, we were still the victims of unreasonable fears.

Bodhi cat

Janet and I found a little cat Saturday night.
he was hiding in the grass near our house. We brought him home, to give him food and water and he began having seizures.
We sat with him through the night and Sunday, hoping he would improve.a contact from save our strays manage to get some water into him-and we were able to give him some sugar water through a dropper.
on Monday, Northwest Veterinary took a look at him and gave him and intravenous water.
that made all of the difference.
the seizures have stopped, and while he is still weak, she does eat and is now resting calmly on my stomach.
