Abstract: 

Authors argue that the modern electronic telecommunication doesn’t radicalize but rather neutralizes and lessens some radical rupture between a semantic reality and a “natural” one of the human world – the rupture which arises from some effects of the written language and the press. The technology of the electronic intercourses and the communicational networks, built upon it, return the modern communication to some rather ancient, traditional and primitive forms of intercourses. This finally leads to the dissolution of the unity of three fundamental constituents of communication (message, information, and understanding). 

Keywords:
