When we put our ideas down on paper.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the twenty-first in a series of posts reflecting on our willingness to remember and the quality of that knowledge. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
All these technologies, all this knowledge, how do we preserve it? In an era where technology is omnipresent, we are far from the ways of our first ancestors. We still have the remains of these communications today. Gestures then language. Word-of-mouth transfer had to be taken seriously. Caution had to be taken to not let anything slip. In cases where these two techniques are limited, we resort to using written communications. Every method is good. A diagram, a drawing, but then came written language. Initially handwritten, reserved for a handful of insiders, it gave way to printing.
Ah, the printing press. The ability to quickly duplicate written communication. In the digital age, it’s easy for me to share my ideas with you via my keyboard and computer. The Internet has increased our distribution capabilities tenfold, to the point where it is now impossible to limit the distribution of our messages with no control over messengers. Soon, everyone will realize that even our thoughts can be captured unbeknownst to us, without even being asked. Since thought patterns are quite normal, it is possible to predict the sequence of human thinking in a surprising way. But this will be for another time. Let’s focus on writing for now.
