Abstract

Person to person communication, when meeting the human ideal, requires individual embodied participation, and more so, intimacy with another through an evolving shared co-presencing, co-embodied, co-experiencing. Communication as a rich sharing is not centred on a simple successful transfer of words, but rather on a replete and cyclical shared enkinaesthietic experience where those communicating become more than two people together, and find opportunities for co-sensing and co-experiencing. The present study offers a philosophical engagement with current telematic communication systems where we contrast the human-ideal of intimate communication and co-presence with examples of fractured palettes, where variables of the aspired-to enkinaesthesia are out of sync, disjointed, or misaligned. The paper concludes with implications for further research along these experiential lines.
