Conversation of the third kind

On the conversation continuum there are natural stopping points, clicks on the tone control knob:

Conversation of the first kind is information transfer. Treble. There are three ways to delete a letter in your word processing program.

Conversation of the second kind is acting upon one another. Half-way. Please do this; What if we moved the sofa over there?

Conversation of the third kind is co-creating one another; it acts upon being. This is the kind we most want, but avoid whenever we can. This interweaves us and makes us all different. Bass. If we saw ourselves as change-makers, we could start a neighborhood garden, end this war.

Three kinds of work conversation can do.
