Everyday language holds the key to future situations involving people, places, property and plans. The advent of the Internet broadens the horizons for those who are connected but how can it overcome the barriers to collectively-rendered critical thinking and problem-solving?

The word has a huge context and connotation far beyond the seemingly simple concepts surrounding a celestial alignment. For example in Jungian Psychology, he uses the term to connote a pair of connected or corresponding things most notably “animus and anima” the unusual quality possessed by all humans each gender having an innate representative of the opposite. In other words, all men have a feminine side and all women have a masculine side.
