to take this reasoning further you should hire a bulk email company and spam
the whole world. seriously. has any artist ever done this?
not 2 my know.ledge......[doesn't mean it hasn't been done, though;)]
just b.cause i perceive the net.work as a whole, a tapestry of
potentialities of defor][com][m][unic][ation doesn't mean i advocate [or
carry out] _blanket spamming_ activity.....this sys.t][n][e][t][m displays
n.tricate s][ilicon][ymbiotic tendencies which shift & pulse data via
n.finite variations...just as i don't c a mailing lists such as syndicate
as static or x.clusively filled with a group of n.tities that r
non-changing & there4 r all hyperaware of how the forum ][can][
function][s][, i don't perceive mailing list as non-communal in scope or
my. p][ercept][atterning. is. reticular.
of course there
would be serious repurcusions which may mean it is better for a non-entity?
i'm not sure.......
like nn to do this. the possibilities are amusing to think about. or do you
see your message as being more focused than this which would mean you
concede to heirarchical data nodes?
not sure if i c _my message_ [& by this i take u 2 mean the fluttering
code.symbology i use in my mezangelled wurks] as focused, but more
flu][idic][vial.....do u c this as perpetuating hierarchical data methods?
