Social Web

The social perceptions of reality help to draw us together as a group.  It forms the basic foundation of how we define symbols, systems, and outcomes.  Without this consensual reality, conflict and dissonance occur, sometimes at an amplified rate.  What happens though when this perception of reality does not mesh (either completely or even partially) with someone else that is important to us.  At that point, we either compromise or begin to shift modes in an effort to at least get the edges to sync up.  This is true not only in professional relationships but romantic, social, and religious relationships as well.  In many ways, this is why nondenominational churches often (but not always) eventually set up their own systems, to ensure that even the disparate members of their congregation are addressed.  It is possible though, especially when there is a driving force such as love, friendship, or family to support it.

In many ways, this is actually the lesson, that reality and perception can be shifted with the help of the community you belong to.  This community is made of friends, family, lovers, neighbors, and all of those who interact on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis in your life.   By creating a web of relationships, the single point or strand that is you becomes stronger.  Social networking alludes to this as does several different functional or systematic models.  Watching it in action though is often much different that watching the models that are created by software where one or more lines lead to you and other friends.  Watching the dance of humanity as it flows and shifts around through the ballroom of reality is like watching the stars swirl in the heavens, each point a luminous entity that pulls and tugs at those around them, influencing others and creating ripples that cross currents, creating further movement in the system.

Standing at a single point, we often loose site of the community around us, seeing only those who are in immediate connection with us at that point in time.  Each connection though shifts back from us, stretching almost into infinity and drawing together those into a single social structure.  This structure forms the basis of religion, politics, morality, ethics, and a dozen other creations.
