Web has become another repository of human thought. A huge library of interconnected
hard drives talking in binary and IP addresses. It is a living strata because
those of us who use it choose to believe in it. Believing that what we
see in our browser windows exists as some independent entity. Without belief
there is nothing. Belief is the concrete between bricks, the adhesive of
thoughts and concept. Stop believing in the Web entity and it becomes a
fading array of numbers.
it seems there are talk show type reactions to this entity called "Internet".
I tire of hearing about porn and sites that instruct us on how to make
bombs. I tire not because I have anything against these sites, but because
the reactions to them are so very strong and so very ignorant.
publically accepted basis for censorship on the net always comes
down to what the kiddies will see on their screens... what porno-bomb-illegalese
will they be goggling at, what nefarious information will be materialising
in their browser windows...
web, being a reflection of the human mind, of a collective mind, represents
an insight into our natures. If indeed 85% of the net is devoted to pornography
then logic dictates that humanity is rather interested in sex. And why
not? We are a species motivated daily by sexual drives. Let us just accept
that and live.
