Unintentional community.

James Carse makes an observation in Finite and Infinite games. "My parents could have wanted a child, but they could not have wanted me."

This brings me to a point that has been stuck in my craw about the phrase 'intentional community'.  I can intend a community, but I can't know what community I am intending.

We only open up a space to be filled.
