I'm glad you brought this point up.


I have been thinking about this subject for a while now & one day I may devote a new thread to this point.



I don't even read entire articles now.



There is just too much coming at us. We are awash in media; information.






..............................................................Image






This internet is an H-bomb that has exploded and now we are being hit by it's force.



It's amazing and it is devastating in it's power. Power that we are now just beginning to feel.



People don't concentrate anymore. Not the way they used to. Long bouts of concentration, the kind it takes to concentrate on reading a book, is no longer a valuable skill. We don't have the time.




Things are so much faster now.



Short, focused bursts of concentration is now what is valuable.



Being able to split our concentration
form - let's say, listening to a professor while being able to carry on a text conversation AND being able to text type WHILE looking at the professor AND receiving incoming tweets.


THAT is the new concentration.

You may not approve.


You may not understand.


But that doesn't matter anymore.



You can express your opinion more easily now. You can express you opinion more widely now...it's just that no one can now hear you in this new cloud of information & voices.



It is a deluge.

That thought occurred to me just recently.

Something gained has caused a loss.

There is no longer any depth.

I really like your thought patterns & way you express yourself.


You are well balanced; truly philosophical.

"And you'd know"

Yep...I'm a WAY bigger dick than you could ever hope to be.

Nonsense. Those dimensions are 'here' in the same proportion as always, just as the 'shiny, new, and superficial' is here in the same proportion as always.

Only difference: what used to come in dribbles and drabs now comes all at once

The search of the "how and the why" are missing.


The result is unreasoned and accepted by even the most harsh inquisitor.


Take Wiki Answers, for example, therein lies the absolute truth? for many.

Making 'today' different (from any other 'day') how?

Willful ignorance is the baseline: always has been; always will be.

Thank you Bill Wiltrack for your compliment. Momentarily flattered and then my reasoning kicked and I came crashing to the earth with a thud, just like the girl in your post and in answer to your other thread.... No

You are not cured, if you were you may as well be dead. LOL

I disagree.

We live in a society that craves "instant gratification" and this is where the how and the why have been pushed aside in favor of the "outcome", the "end result"

Are your eyes wide shut.
