In a time when flesh is lethal, what does it mean for us to turn on our computers to touch one another? What does it mean for us to spend our time in a state of disembodiment? Whether it is online or in the dimension of virtual reality, we become bodiless. Temporality, the thread of time, is in fact the container for the demarcation of real or imagined events in our lives.
Historically, philosophers have crystallized the definitions of time within parameters of succession. Western philosophy indulges in the inflated importance given to the notion of the past and the grandiose role it plays in referencing our modes of temporal existence.
Asking Big Questions by Judith S. Albert Lung How do we present ourselves to others in cyberspace? Do we lose our "souls" in virtual communities or discover parts of our unconscious we were not aware of?
Does this WWW global magazine virtualize the archetypes of the Jungian collective unconscious? When does the internet become a destructive addiction? Is privacy still important in the global age and if so, how do we preserve it? Is there such a thing as cyber-fright, like stage-fright or writers block, or does the nature of the medium encourage us to let it "all hang out"?
How does the Western concept of self conflict with the non-Western sense of state and community, or even "soul"? Creativity demands a respect for the self, a Western concept in terms of material goals, but an Eastern one when developing spiritual goals. The self is messy, complicated, chaotic and contradictory, as all of you who have studied Jung and Freud, or even remembered your own dreams, know.
Where is the place in our online educational model for the "deepspace" of the unconscious? What studies are being done on how the internet affects pathologies such as attention deficit disorder, autism and manic depression? How can children protect themselves against predators but still express themselves and have fun?
Electronic Disturbance inverted Is the traditional professor anachronistic? Can group collaboration replace group leaders? What is the best training for tomorrow's educators?
How do educators compensate for limits while retaining leadership? How can their biological mindbodies compete with the exhausting demands of cyberspace's seemingly infinite space and time?
Will professors still be intellectual factory and migrant workers in the twenty first century, a cog in a wheel, smoothing the production of the courseware package? Will societies always reward and worship models, movie and pop stars more than educators,or will cyberspace improve the social status of professors?
What do children think of their teachers?A thesis is unarguably the most important part of academic fulfillment. Theses are majorly made for two levels- Masters and PhD.
Structuring and creating the thesis research requires great expertise. A PhD from an Indian university will equip you well for academic work in fields related to your specialism. In most cases completion of the NET examinations required for admission on to a PhD programme will also satisfy part of the requirements for a teaching post in India's growing higher education system.
