Of course I did, I had to, to make you understand how I see
If I didn 't write any reply to your previous posts, I wouldn 't
perform anything according to your point of view.
But I did something......I did ' nothing ' !
And if I did not perform, it would made you happy, no !?
You would have spent more time on other replies besides mine.
Writing this is performance and I add something to the
' cultural ' intercourse between the two of us. If I did nothing, what in itself can be seen as a performance, I also would add something to the same ' cultural pool '.... nothing ! And that fact would have made you happy !
Intercourse needs indeed by definition performance between
two or more people/ things, but saying nothing, doing nothing
can ' say ' so much more !
If I write something to you and you don 't reply, the former
is indeed intercourse and performance but isn 't the latter
part of the same category !? Wouldn 't I understand what
you trying to say !? Wouldn 't that be part of the cultural/
social intercourse we have !?
People ignore all the time things and other people, don 't
you think this attitude adds something to the cultural/
social memepool of which those people are part !?
Would the meaning of being ignorant not be added, as
a ' meaningful- frame ' to the cultural memepool !?
