I would like to reflect about the concept of serendipity phenomena in a not scientific way. That is because there is a neuroscience matter and it is out of my domain. Here is a
project “Serendip” which is more connected to scientific resarch.
Is it a way of thinking?.
I think it is a way of “thin slicing“.

On the story that came from a book ( a university student once lend to me) called “Subway Named Moebius,by A.J. Deutsch ” I found an interesting relationship on the bases on connectivity (S. Downes):
“The principles of connectivity state that as a system makes more connections to other parts of itself, the connectivity of that system increases in an exponential fashion to staggering levels.(1)”

This week 6, Semantic learning objectives are:
“The ability to connect communicative elements to underlying purposes, goals, objectives, theories or meaning, denotation, reference, truth and understanding. Including new ways of interpreting information and evaluating media, through aggregation and filtering for instance. “
Following this, I would like to reflect about the exchange between John, Ulop, Stephen and Ruth on Suifaijohnmak’s Weblog. That is because I find a group treatment of different contents (their messages or comments posted) of their thoughts. This experience is complex and that the group communication problems are different possibilities of expression, interpretation, perception or reception to interpret the meaning or the semantic dimension of the messages. So, this is the point in which this experience is connected with the challenge suggested on this week.
