The principle question discussed in this essay is essentially a philosophical or existential one: in our increasingly remediated, interconnected, physically and virtually mobile contemporary world, it is conceivable, or feasible, for us actually to be “here, there, everywhere” at one and the same time? Have our predominantly ‘local’ personal, professional and collective narrative histories, and the various cultural traditions that have grown out of these, really furnished us with relational identity skills that enable us to participate positively and actively in ongoing globalisation processes, and to play a constructive, active, ethical role in the global gameplay arena? Or do we need to work more together with non-familiar forms of otherness if we want to develop new types of “glocal” identities, able to mediate and transcend the emotional, conceptual, cultural, and other divides that may hinder the identification, management and a just balancing of ‘global’ and ‘local’ needs, rights and interests? As a contribution to further interdisciplinary debate of this and related themes, in media studies or elsewhere, this essay intentionally seeks to provoke , by offering some engaged, informed but clearly speculative considerations, regarding the valorisation, application and evaluation of new digital media designed to facilitate ludic transmedia, transworld cooperition at-a-distance, to develop practical strategies to engage, in responsible, ethical, ecological, mutually sustainable ways, with non-copresent, non-local others and their own past, present and future actual, and possible, worlds.
