Therefore, what purpose do we assign to new communication tools? Their most socially useful use would undoubtedly be to provide human groups with instruments together their mental powers in order to constitute intellectuals or collective imaginers. Communicative computing would then appear as the technical infrastructure of the collective brain or the hyper cortex of living communities. The role of computer science and digital communication techniques is not to "replace man" or to approach a hypothetical "artificial intelligence", but to promote the construction of intelligent collectives where social potentialities and cognitive of each can develop and mutually enhance each other. According to this approach, the major architectural project of the twenty-first century will be to imagine, build and develop the interactive and ever-changing space of cyberspace. Perhaps then it will be possible to go beyond the entertainment society to a post-media era, in which communication techniques will be used to filter the flow of information, to navigate knowledge and to think together rather than to carry masses of information.

[...] true knowledge [...] is experiential. How do we explain the taste of sugar? Verbal descriptions do not give us the sensation. To know the taste, one must experience it. The philosophy of the arts is not meant to be mused over and intellectualized; it is meant to be experienced. Thus, inevitably, words will convey only part of the meaning.
