Humanity produced tools based on the body… i) Extensions of men (the wheel is a putting outside­ourselves of the feet; the wall is an  outering of the skin) ii) Electric media are extensions of the nervous system 2. Media is often categorized as closed or open systems. i.) Closed systems (newspapers, books, paintings) use one sense at a time. Used in a  linear fashion ii.) Open systems (TV, radio) allows us to become collectively conscious of the  medium, not fragmenting or specializing one sense from the others. Non­linearity  occurs. iii.) The open systems brings back auditory and/or oral traditions from before the  times of print media. Electronic media especially articulates the “annihilation of  time and space.” iv.) Tribalism is the closed society as the norm of community. Group forms were  reinstated once radio and television contracted human beings and machines to  participate in media at the same time. 3.) The use of radio in the 1920s came around in… i.)        The Navy ii.)       Poltical candidates and campaigns v.) DXing (tuning in the farthest stations) vi.) Point­to­point vs. broadcasting
