we live in a digital age.
we have knowledge of things, but less understanding. more information, less investment.
there was this thought about a history of knowledge and information. some things last. some don’t.
it appears the information we are surrounded byhas less density. less importance—affected by volume and change. I care less about certain information because it can be acquired in short notice. less stays in my mind.
what is worth keeping in my mind?
is there understanding that will be essential?
one question I have carried with me for around thirty years now is “what will remain of this society” when it is found later? will all that remains is the most dense material we produced? porcelain toilets? fire hydrants? dams?
without electricity this current culture will become invisible.
