It's like Marshall McLuren said... "The media is the message". We commonly use content to sit in front of a TV (and not a TV to sit in front of content). An interesting theory has also been out in JAMA (1976 at first); that 10-15 years after a nation introduces TV the homicide rate doubles. They last introduced TV in Bhutan in 1999, and recently started complaining of unusual violence... The theory is that pre-adolescents don't do right from wrong, but just "everything is real", and when they grow up, they manifest. I have another modern theory; that we are decreasing physically and emotionally and moving into our minds, because we're swimming in intellectual property (TV, fil, recorded music, cyberspace, porn, video games... All IP. One of the best points to me about TV came in the 1976 film "Network", with the older man and younger woman talking. She was the first of the TV generation, and he said that to her, war and love would all just be like "popping bottles of beer". Reality can become TV, and TV reality. All interesting thoughts. For getting our minds right, I have begun to devise a scheme... http://coopassembly.org
