Tearing and Mending

Transcontextual Learning and ‘Healing’

Nora Bateson Oct 18, 2022

“The fabrics of interaction are going to be torn and they’re going to mend. And after all, we are only a model of what we are trying to talk about, and it would be absolute nonsense to try to construct that model as though it did not contain the tearings of fabric.” — Gregory Bateson (p 293)

Can you hear the sound of fabric ripping, hypocrisies bursting out in little torn spots here and there?
