it just struck me as i was showering that typing through intertype relations (while lacking a reliable source/reference point) is like trying to suds up the sponge with another sponge, one that resembles soap.
i actually did this cause the light was out in the bathroom.
and a slightly different idea came to me:
typing through web cam is like getting an everything bagel, zooming into something like a grain of salt on the surface or a poppy seed, and then labeling the tiny part as the whole bagel.
my point is that when people are lacking an an observable/salient environment in which to function, how much can really be ascertained?
