    Description:
       This is the philosophy of our changing senses, as we change from the privileged eye of print, to experiencing all our senses, electronically.

    -------------------------------------------


    We are moving from print to the electric image. Print has given us the author, and so the Author of the Universe, and so authority.

    Authority is successful in bringing order to chaos.

    Print has given us linear, sequential order. We see this in the Roman army which lasted 1,800 years, including the Eastern part of the Roman Empire.

    Authority is successful in bring order to Nature with evidence and reason.

    And authority is successful in bringing order to our psyche in psychology.

    And authority has been successful in bring order to politics with liberal democracy and the limitation of power.

    But print is now the content of the electric image, for instance, we are now reading an electric image, we are not reading print. And the electronic image is naturally extending to the the haptic sense, as well as our aural sense. In fact electronics serves all our senses, while print privileges the eye.

    So poetically we say God is dead, the author is dead, the book is dead. We are coming to the end of three thousand years of the phonetic alphabet, yet we continue with the same institutions based on print, such as compulsory schooling.

    We are entering a new world of the senses, all our senses, still with the privilege of the eye, so looking through our privileged eye, we quite naturally fail to 'see' our other senses, because our other senses, such as our haptic sense, are invisible to our privileged eye.

    We are moving into the future blinded by our sight.
