The two cannot be completely separated,
the one feeds the other which feeds the one.Bozo Faust
This formula applies in the case of the media and it’s message and what we do.
it's not a matter of being able to draw a mental distinction between two things that can be identified. rather it is a knowledge that they do not exists as such independent of each other. For example an apple and an orange. These are quite independent of each other and the apple's existence is not dependent on the orange's existence. But what kind of things are not that way?
Yep, you are describing the process of distinction, but won't acknowledge it.
give me a break ... talking this way, as is common in some circles, merely means that a universe in which the statement was true would be different than a universe in which it would not be true.
as to the meaning of your empty, well that was your tagging, i was just going with it.
