I wonder what else lurks there! I’m rescuing it.


Psybernet Glossary of Key Ideas : Psyberspace

Cyberspace seen through a soul perspective.

The soul, or psyche requires a medium. Without medium the soul is nonexistent. The psychodrama stage, the psychotherapeutic hour, the poem, and so on are psyber-media. Cyberspace is the ultimate medium for the soul, the realm where the gods live. Without adequate media for soul the gods are dead, there is no numinosity. The soul is evolving in cyberspace. Viewed in this way psyberspace is not a bad name for it.
That the soul is eternal, outside space and time, makes sense when viewed as a manifestation through this media. The power of the psyche is also manifest, in that media transforms the world. The invention of the printing press unconsciously transforming the world into its image, conveyor belts, moveable type pre-cursing all manufacturing and assembly of pars. Visualise the effect of the invention of paper, drawing boards etc. on the shape of buildings. The electronic manifestation of soul is right now soaking its influence into the world, restructuring organizations, theories of personal development, publishing, money, into a form analogous to its its digitally mediated life.
