WIFI = Machines, BOFI = People

Humans don’t notice the physical ties holding them together.

Language holds them together and language is a physical force. Sound waves are produced with the mechanisms of the speech apparatus. These waves push against nerve receptors and small bones in ears which interpret the sounds. Writing is obviously a physical process and reading demands physical stimulus to the nerve cells in the eyes.

Being connected by sound and light waves functions as effectively for humans as radio waves for electronics. Human connections are bodiless, but, like wireless, keep us connected just the same. Think BOFI (bodiless fidelity) instead of WIFI (wireless fidelity)!

(From the book System Humanity)

 

 

“Language goes from mind to mind,
stations on the journey to the heart.”
