At first it was the mention of ‘strategy’ that sold me. That’s me — I’m sold first, my life is a series of extrications one after the other.

The other construct I’ve been working on is of society as a circle of people contributing towards the empty (stone soup?) centre, with the integrators (Toffler)collapsing multiple chords into a single point . Thus we have what Gibson said “We live in a highly mediated world”
in the garishly set “No maps for these territories” .
