• The transformation of communications technology has expanded our potential today to connect with others and share information almost infinitely. Today, technological devices enable us to interface with each other virtually anytime, anywhere. Even in the most basic interpersonal communications, there exists a gap, a void in mutual understanding. This divide is often overlooked as we want so badly to believe we are understood/understanding that our minds compensate, our minds perceive what may or may not be there, sometimes we perceive things that are not there at all. These perceptions enable us to believe in the success of our communications and move forward. We experience communication as a synthesis of transmitted signs and cues received and interpreted through emergent virtual perceptions of each individualʼs subconscious perceptual void. If the success of communication is reliant upon these virtual perceptions, which come from a space other than that of the individuals attempting to communicate, then when we communicate, we are in actuality interacting more with this void space, than with each other. The use and implementation of additional technological tools for interaction with one another deepen this fundamental divide between transmission and reception of human interpersonal communication.
