No possibility of a shared meaning

Aditya Dev Sood argues that a user is someone who is aware of the instrumentality of his or her actions with objects and systems with which he or she interacts. This is distinct from interactions with other natural and intelligent life forms for which there is communion, there is the possibility of a shared meaning.

Although understanding perception can be confusing, people are never confused in their perception of whether they interact with systems or beings. Also when interacting with a system that pretends to be a human being, the illusion will not able to be sustained indefinitely and will certainly fail the next time around. People seem to have a pretty clear boundary in their vocabulary when they think about things and systems versus beings. People do not expect a system to have intentions, but rather that the master of the system or the shareholder of the makers of the system have good or bad or capitalist or other kinds of intentions. People attribute intentionality to corporate players while expressing anger or interest or joy of the design or usability of the system. People have feelings about a lot of things and about objects as well. But that is not being in communion; it is not generating a shared meaning.
