This brush stroke, there are a few apps that do it, is wonderfully sketchy, not at all computery, and like nothing in rl. That’s what fascinates me with it. Note Nothing like it in real life, you can’t buy a paint brush to do this, it is not an emulation. The apps it comes with are primitive, but that is ok.

2.03: The Economy of Ideas
Last line from the JPB item linked before:
And finally, in the years to come, most human exchange will be virtual rather than physical, consisting not of stuff but the stuff of which dreams are made. Our future business will be conducted in a world made more of verbs than nouns.
Stuff that dreams are made of… there is the clue… to psyberspace.
BUT… Information is as much a real product as material goods – it arises not only out of dreams but hard work. I think it un-psychological to not see the real thing and then to see into it imaginatively. It is particularly skewed to selectively imagine.
That is central to my whole way of doing therapy. It goes back to the “seduction theory”. Must dig up an article I wrote on that. To put it simply: just because it really happened does not mean we should neglect our dreams.
One thing I loved about this article is the opening quote from Jefferson. JPB certainly found the right bit to quote.
Spring Journal, begun in 1941 by the Analytical Psychology Club of New York, is the oldest Jungian journal. Twice a year we bring you writings from the likes of James Hillman, Ginette Paris, David L. Miller, Sonu Shamdasani, Charles Boer, Nor Hall, Michael Vannoy Adams, Jay Livernois, and many more of the hottest writers in the field. It is edited by Charles Boer and Jay Livernois.
I could not get into Spring Publications site the other day, finished up ordering an old copy of Spring here – 53 the reality issue. It was here within about 10 days. Service was good!
Spring 54 – 1993 – Reality
Articles by James Hillman, Wolfgang Giegerich, David L. Miller, and Edward Casey
The subject that turned the 1992 Notre Dame Festival of Archetypal Psychology into a brawl! Spring 54 prints the paper: Giegerich on “Killings,” Miller on “Animadversions,” Casey on “Place.” Plus Protestant Reality, Sonu Shamdasani on Automatic Writing, Hillman’s “Blue Note,” and more.
I ordered it. It looks right on topic for – Keywords: psyberspace work.
