"....during the past few decades, modern technology, with radio, tv, air travel, and satellites, has woven a network of communication which puts each part of the world in to almost instant contact with all the other parts. yet, in spite of this world-wide system of linkages, there is, at this very moment, a general feeling that communication is breaking down everywhere, on an unparalleled scale...."

|hello! welcome! |
the table, short TT , is a free-for-all melange of ideas comments word&picture, rather playful. a new communication form made possible by the internet. some people write, some send pictures, movies and sounds, some do all, some do none and just lurk......
we originally came together under the banner of Bohm Dialogue (as well as: OD, Optical Dialogue , an off-shoot of bohm-dialogue) and retain this interest, some to a great degree, others to lesser degrees (to learn about what happened to the "old" david bohm dialogue group, click h e r e). the table is an unfolding process, has no moderator, no rules, no rulers. any thinkg goes. we dont have a goal, other than, if you want: to share thinkg(ing)s. this is the only place, as far as we know, that does david bohm dialogue on-line, via the internet (currently we, about 20 people from all over the wwworld, communicate via email & aTTachments). no-one decides the rights/wrongs, the legality or otherwise of a posting. nothinkg but curiousity about who&what we humans are (not) thinkging/doing here.......
thus what is going on in this open-structured group is equally confusing, delightful, provocative, annoying and, we are notafraid: more&less.....sometimes all at once... take a stroll around this site we just started. and please contact us if you want to join, or just wny questions and suggestion, etc. thanks ~ TT
to join, watch, ask, etc ~ or visit us at the * playground *
......" dialogue is really aimed at going into the whole thought process and changing the way the thought process occurs collectively. we havent really paid much attention to thought as a process. we have ENGAGED in thoughts, but we have only paid attention to the content, not to the process. why does thought require attention. every thinkg requires attention, really. if we ran machines withinout paying attention to them, they would break down. our thought, too, is a process, and it requires attention, otherwise its going to go wrong right"......
