On Natural Relational Movements
of Resonance . . .

Interconnection? The movements of intelligence in Nature
resonate together like the happy, splashing, dancing waves of water
merging on the complex surface of a mountain stream. Shake one,
and they all shake. Leave one out, and another steps in to take
its place.

This is why machines like computers, which are based not so much
on the all-at-once of the resonance of natural intelligence, but rather
on long, complicated, necessarily explicit strings of logical thought, so
easily break. Their connections must indeed be 'hard-wired', so
to speak, one-at-a-time.

Given the present need for this absolute surface precision,
and therefore the lack of the greatly more flexible relational
movements of resonance,
computers, computer networks and
the software upon which they depend, are all prone to go haywire
with even the slightest low-level error.

Remarkably, if musicians were forced to tune the complex weave
of the interconnected sounds and rhythms of an orchestra in
this way, they would not make it past the first measure.
