Incidentally i want to be very clear about this.  RWG is one of the artifical barriers to mixed media
The RWG is not artificial it is built into the human's selfhood - your very mention of it is an example as is mine for mentioning your mention -> to infinity & beyond.


Well i think the RWG is much more artificial than you give it credit.  Sure it seems like a instinctual behavior ... the behavior of competition ... that has evolved and grown as humans have grown.  But by and large it is just a bad habit.  Did you know that there were cultures where it is not even practiced?  I read about that somewhere ... quite a while ago ... and I wouldn't be able to find it easily with a Google ... maybe it was in a book by Margaret Mead ... not sure.  Also women in a group are far less competitive ... far more cooperative ... far less prone to insist on being right at somebody's expense of being wrong ... and that might be an easier Google to establish.  Also from personal experience i have found that some people are more prone to the behavior than others. 

So in the sense that is just a bad habit ... perhaps harder for some to break than others ... it is still a behavior to choose to do or choose not to do ... as such i think that the term "artificial boundary" applies.
Nope! QED

....

frequently the more empathy in a situation, the less RWG .... and the less RWG in a situation the more empathy.  you can think about the world in stereo outside of your box with the help of others.

As guidance you might consider Peter Ralston's Book of Not Knowing & in particular the parts about self  (whole parts II & IV - a considerable part of the book).  The RWG is part of the programming of the self.  Zen is one doorway out of the self. What's there when we exit, Being?

P.S. I learned about the RWG someplace else.
Are you guiding and teaching me something like a Zen Master?  Is that your presumption when you are obnoxiously doing RWG with me?  Is that the story and rationalization you tell yourself when you click?  Do you remember all the times that i have asked you, in every way i can imagine, not to do it?  How do you feel when you do it?  How do you think it makes me feel?
NOPE!

You have your own distinction Bozo you should probably call it Bozo's Dilemma instead.

As a metaphor look at the partisan political debate as interference between channels ... stereo left and stereo right ... you could listen to both channels at the same time ... or you can do what most partisans do: invert the left channel, introduce noise, and then pipe it into the right channel ... (or visa versa). If you can listen to a topic that way and hear anything useful ... let me know how you do it ... because all i hear is the static.
... see if you can grock what this has to do with mixed media ... and / or ... rwg

Again it's free speech.  It is a shame that the left has a real hard time mastering that idea! Of course without opposition (you call it partisanship) everything would be just fine for the Obamagarchy. Unfortunately there are those of us who prefer the US Constitution instead with it's rules for limited government.  Here is the attitude that Obama established early in the game while debating the budget:
WSJ: ... The roots of the Obama-Cantor animosity date back at least to another memorable exchange in 2009, some three days after the inauguration. In a meeting with the president, Mr. Cantor—then the No. 2 Republican in the House—discussed the economic recovery plans that the post-2008 GOP remnant favored. "Elections have consequences," the president responded, "and Eric, I won." The White House promptly leaked the remark to the media.
... bipartisanship is a myth .  How do you compromise on life vs abortion? mixed media has nothing to do with the RWG, but it does with Bozo's Dilemma #2!

Well the way things work best here at fastblogit is where the owner of a item is left to guide the agenda ... ok, ok.

The adgenda, or train of thought, for this item is being aware of the barriers to thinking (or doing, or feeling, or sensing) in stereo.  Of course, calling it "stereo" is just to use a metaphor ... we could just as well call it "cooperation".  It's pretty clear to me that RWG gets in the way of that.  Don't you agree?
You can guide your agenda anywhere you want & I can ignore it & leave you to wallow in your ignorance about a topic I wrote about way back on 1722 7 years ago based upon a distinction I learned about 23 years ago in 1989. You may also misapply one metaphor to another for all I care. If you want my cooperation you must consider my thoughts.

i know it feels weird to think of another person as a separate channel into your own awareness ... but this metaphor is all about thinking that you can. so, using this metaphor, you grock that two people fighting with each other is like interference between the left and the right channels of a stereo system. the metaphor actually does work if you let it. conversely if your don't let it work, it won't.
... a good description if i do say so myself.
