Communications Scrapbook

pk domains had hundreds of files up about communications and failures of communication. There’s no single more essential fact about pk and this society than the fact that my novel about failures of communication was not published!

I’ve got communications modules in my Thinking Tools, throughout my HierCon school stories, church stories, army stories … family and personal stories …!

Here’s a simple truth, summarizing much. It isn’t that I never had a teacher understand a single point I said. I think many individuals understand many of the points I make; but the understanding doesn’t travel. The communication will move one square, but not two squares. I say something about Shaw, Professor Dan Laurence understands what I say; but then the Chairman of the Department does not understand Dan Laurence’s telling the Chairman. My mother understands a point, but fails to pass it to my sister. My son understands some point; but a third link never forms.

I’ll wager that what’s true of me is true in lots of other cases: but those cases don’t communicate either!

If we judge ourselves, we’re all in heaven. Ah, but where will we be when God judges us?

About pk

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
