To be clear: One way of seeing social networks and the Internet is as a training ground. Next up, in this respect: making these connections with one another via our minds, our thoughts, our flesh. The relative freedom of these digital networks points away from our previous material limitations toward the vastness of spirit and all the possibilities that realm holds.
To expand on this: Social experience in digital networks has far more to do with spiritual development than anything else. We are learning to navigate vastness, to find our way through our own and others’ psychologies, to create worlds and cast these into the mystery beyond what is known via limited human transparencies.
