When you finally get started.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the thirtieth 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!
So it’s time to go back to our first topic in our list of knowledge and techniques to maintain for the survival of our knowledge and know-how. I have already mentioned a book that could guarantee a considerable amount of information to preserve, but is it enough? I don’t think so. For example, some vital signs can be quite simple and accurate without the help of technology. In terms of heartbeats, a watch or an hourglass could be used. It could also be a metronome or a pendulum. Of course, counting time using mnemonics could be relatively inaccurate, so an instrument could be useful for standardizing the taking of measurements.
Length, for example, could be taken using the meter. But if we decide to take our measurements using another scale, a stick of any length for example, the important thing would be to have access to the details required to create a replica of this stick. In terms of measuring time, the same would be true for an hourglass. Building a watch is a greater challenge, although possible.
You see, it’s not as simple as saying, “Make sure you have a watch in your survival kit”. You have to know how to make it and be able to do it.
