....i suppose this depends on how _honesty_ is d.fined in this

the 1 that is defined in real-time as _ego_ in psychotherapeutic theories]

not all of us:) i still find it quirky receiving invites 2 join in
geophysically defined events, 1s that demand physicality as a requirement 4
serious participation.........its as if 2 b online ][or not 2 b on.line;)][
can b quantified|qualified only by the grounding of it in a real-time,
flesh(ed) actuality.........as if online x.istence is only legitimated if
the physical awareness *b.hind* it is eventually
i wonder how much of this lies with][in][ the notions of community &
evolutionary pacing....its difficult 2 fulfill, or even mimic,
biologically-assigned drives [like reproduction & survival] online when
those needs require profound immersion in physical + social states ......
of course we dont exist online without the flesh offline
..this hinge word 4 me here is _we_.......this relates back 2 the idea of
x.tendible identity states...is it possible 2 have an online personality
facet that x.tends in tandem within a biologically-seated consciousness
without having 2 reduce it 2 a manageable, _poor cousin_ of reality?
maybe the question is what string connects those sets of identies ?
u mean the elementary [manifest] off & online identity-sets, mel?
