”Everything is communication”, says a thesis launched by the School of Palo Alto. It is a truth that each of us, specialists in communication or not, get to through the simple observation of reality and existence. Everything happens under the aegis of communication, within this process, with its tools, methods and strategies. Further, nothing exists outside communication. We communicate when we communicate and we communicate when we don’t communicate. Through our mere existence, we communicate. I am, therefore I communicate. I communicate, therefore I am – we can say paraphrasing Descartes.
