The Idea of Ideas

How does one visually represent the internet? like a grid ...where things are grouped but floating.. organized digital matter piled on one other like brick and mortar? Like a few main service providers branching out into several groups of sites?

How does one visually represent ideas? like a grid? like a grouped collective consciousness? like a river with very few original ideas branching into tributaries which branch into streams and babbling brooks?

Salman Rushdie in Haroun and the sea of stories alludes to "kathasarithasaagar" (ocean of stories) where each story has a distinct origin. Stories are constantly interwoven and reborn.

Richard Bach in "one" writes of lives as ribbons in the sea... multicolored ribbons running along the length of the sea. Lives that are constantly interwoven and reborn. He also talks about Tink the idea fairie and the idea factory.

QuickSilver writes:

There it goes
that thought -
released by a soul.
Now it will linger,
freely in the air.
Now, it will meet
similar thoughts.
Collective, strong wishes -
Simple, passing comments.
Ideas, spoken - unspoken,
they all glide around.
Waiting to be picked, by

What places has this particular thought that I’m expressing visited since it was first expressed in our "earth"...only to be picked up by me (and how many else) and expressed here.

They say all material things have to start with a thought. A computer had to first start with the idea of a thing like a computer... so we virtually create everything out of nothing.. everything we humans can call things of convenience of modern civilization were all fashioned out of .. thin air..

However now.. we have gone (now pay attention) from "thought to form" to "thought to thought"! What best to represent this phenomenon than the internet.. I’d say we've come a complete circle with the creation of internet. We now create everything virtually out of virtually nothing!! Ha!!
