Web Communication

Communications between nodes means sharing of information. Because of the limitations of communication channels, the Real Cat cannot be communicated--only a Mechanical Cat gets through. Even with the increased bandwidth, information sharing will take one of four paths: attenuation, amplification, storage for later transmission and decision-making, or grounding to a null state.

The decision for how the information is shared is made by the sending node. The human circuit decides which path the information takes according to how its filters are set at the point in time and space that the communication is made. Similarly, the relieving node decides how the information is taken in according to its filters.

The four paths at each end of the communication can change or destroy the information content.

The attenuation path removes information and thus leaves more of the interpretation up to the receiver. The amplification path requires the sender to generate more information based on their concept of the information being sent or received. The storage path will hold the information until some point at which this information along with other information indicates that the information should be sent on. The final path, the grounding path, will destroy the communication.

Appropriate communication is achieved when the sender and receiver are calibrated to one another's communication paths. This can only be achieved on a continuing basis through low amplitude, high frequency, communication.
