Adding depth to the research on Cosmopolitan Communication.

The topic of this Forum is ‘Cosmopolitan Communication’ which was first proposed by Barnard Peace (1989) and is researched especially by the CMM Institute and IfGIC. One definition of ‘cosmopolitan communication’ that I developed as a CMM-fellow is: “Cosmopolitan communication is a form of persons-in-conversation and energy-in-conversation which can create a social reality with unified diversity and relational responsibility by resonating and synchronizing with information-energy between communicators with integrity.” (Matoba, 2013).

Moreover, we see, like Bateson (1972), that there are three dimensions of communication: Intrapersonal communication (communication with body/brain and self), interpersonal communication (communication with others) and systemic communication (communication with systems).
