When you try to reconnect.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the seventh 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!
Let’s go back to our mechanical waves. You are in a room where everyone is talking at a louder or quieter volume. While some are whispering, others are screaming in your ears. The latter supplant the former, even if they turned up the volume of their communication, how would you hear it if you were already deafened by the screams? In order to convey an important message, you could choose another channel, such as visual, or prioritize your message. This is kind of what national cell phone alert systems are trying to do.
An exception to the rule would be alerts. An endlessly repeated message attracts our attention because of the annoyance it generates. A crying baby or child repeating your name over and over again is a great way to get your attention at the expense of someone else. On the other hand, could we imagine a world in which we would be constantly at war over the attention of our recipients? What do you say? Is that what’s happening now? You’re quite right. I hope you like it, because it’s thanks to us that we have got to this point. How can we get out of it then? Firstly, do we want to? Secondly, is there a way out to regain our communicative dignity?
