Nel mezzo cammin de nostro vita is not the same as in the middle of the
course of our lives. Why bother? Because nel mezzo cammin... is not the same
as in the middle of the... Untsoweiter ...
Why is peace not the same as vrede? Because the initiating of the running
code "peace" started at a different time than the initiating of the
coagulated running code "vrede"?
Why do languages live? Because they rub each other's backs.

Scale matters, position matters, division matters, time matters. Even if
time is a human illusion, time matters. Literally. (In Dutch you can only
say "doet er toe", you can't make the "matter" link,- does that mean
anything? Sure, it's a comment on the configuration as we are having it.)
On what basis are you going to have a protocol, at which "level" of the
continuum, the line indicating where traversals can be made?
What does the http:// protocol actually do? Nothing. It observes the flow of
data. Does it change the flow of data? Is it not observerving the flow of
data? Does it not interfere with the flow of data? Do we not bleed when
Observance comes at a cost. The cost is called the digital divide. It looses
data while cutting them. Why loss? Because you are cutting, changing
positions of non-existent entities, you are making entities, objects. You're
quantum leaping from wave to particles. W hen making the cut, you gotta
consider where you're going to make it, but you'll always lose. There's no
red and green wire to choose from, it's only one wire, , the bomb will
always explode in your face...
The digital revolution is about refining the grid but you cannot ungrid the
grid. The point of no return is when matter itself says to you "hi, you're
cutting me". At that moment you already are within the grid, you have made
the choice (to cut or not to cut, that one).
Redemption? Cut again.
Why not the agreement of "universal language" at the xml-level? Would there
be any difference where you draw the line? As things are there is a plethora
of reasons to draw the starting line of "namespaces" at the xml level
- humans can read/write it
- machines can read/write it
- business needs it
If not, what are you going to measure? Below? The remainders of analog
noise? Sure there is "meaning" left in analog noise. Connect to the "noise"
of Ultra Short Frequency and you will hear it. Do sea waves mean something?
Sure, why not. Where are you going to establish an art:// protocol? One that
makes agreements on the meaning of seawaves? On the cries of the doves? Who
will understand it? who will be able to read/write to it?
Why agree at all? Because then you can start garbaging, recycling the
Or: not at all, let it swing, hang loose, disagree, object, phantom, pray,
obsess, incorporate, mislead, defy, acknowledge, breath, die, resurrect,
