  1. I might check this out, if only to find out what a philosophy of co-becoming involves. Crossing contexts piqued my attention, because it seems at least peripherally connected to something I have been formulating: the notion of contextual reality I have mentioned elsewhere. There are many questionable realities, some of which seem plainly false; others, only misguided and /or wacky. Whatever intent may be, these beliefs and dogmas come from individuals or groups who say, roughly: reality is what we say it is. There is a lot of it, and, it goes by different names. If I said there is much more of this now, that would be obvious understatement. So, yes—crossing contexts feels meaningful. I need to get a better sense of the meaning and whether it relates to what I am examining.
