thought

Said "  Actions should have consequences. People should learn from the consequences they experience.  As this wonderous Internet, this grand mind of man, comes to grips with reality and as it becomes useful in the long run, it will need to get it's head out of the clouds. " 


By the way....they always have consequences

Mark de LA says
consequence Look up consequence at Dictionary.comc.1380, from O.Fr. consequence "result," from L. consequentia, from consequentem (nom. consequens), prp. of consequi "to follow after," from com- "with" + sequi "to follow" (see sequel). Sense of "importance" (1602) is from notion of being "pregnant with consequences."Incidently, the online etymological dictionary from which etymology is derived is having server size problems. They are requesting paypal sponsorship of words.  Does the have any ideas on what words might bring in some traffic to FastBlogIt ?
blogsonomy, folksonomy..tags ...??

Actions always have consequences! Daydreams are not actions.
"Actions" is just a word, a tag, and your use of the tag is peculiar to you.  Scientifically, (psychology and behavioral science), daydreams are tagged actions because everything that happens is behaviro.  But the distinction you are drawing is valid, but the distinction is (scientifically) talked about differently.  Scientifically we refer to public actions and private actions, and private actions do not carry the same kind of consequences as public actions. 

Notice that the passage i said, that you quoted in this item, was said in the context of internet,consequences.  That was what i was talking about.  About that, i am thinking, ... publically thinking,  ... about the actions people take on the internet ... about your keystrokes on the internet ... and about the kinds of consequences that befall you because of those actions.  If most people who keystroke the internet are going to be fantacy people, people who have severed their internet persona from their flesh and blood identity, then we will have a much different internet than if most of the persona on the internet are actually connected to their flesh and blood bodies, and that the consequences of their keystrokes befall their actual lives. 

I kind of know about this becasue i have experienced it ... both ways.
