Image of possibility


What is communicated in every communication is an image of possibility. Communication is not the “transferring” of a “message” from a “sender” to a “receiver,” as is commonly pictured, but any process that facilitates the production of images of possibility - using speaking, writing, gestures, etc. Such an image is not the expression of a truth, but of a possibility – it is the form in which possibility can be thought, or rather, imagined. Communication, then, is a crucial part of the imaginative process.
