I'm young by most standards. That's a given. Anyone who might psycho-analyze my posts would inevitably come to the same conclusion. I've been told I'm abrasive, creative, smart, harsh, brash, idealistic, stupid, arrogant, talented, unwilling, egotistical, insightful, thoughtful, cerebral, loyal. I'm glad I can be something to someone, at anytime. I'm becoming organic and fluid in a world that will undoubtedly perceive me as it wishes.Uniquely relative to the moment. Yours or mine. I'm flattered, I'm gowing-thank you. As with any of life's realities, your life and mine are defined by our relationships with others. The knowledge we share and trade. I'm responsible for each of these relationships. And like a good friend or family member, your patient with me as I am with you.
My point; the world has changed and will continue to change at a rate that far exceeds a pace measurable through current conventions. In fact, the world is changing for the first time, organically. It's growing in relation to it's environment. All of the wonderful things that give it life are contributing to it's development.
All though many would argue this is not the case or, that I am correct. With an end result of self-destruction on some grand scale, which is silly. I have to say that your blind if you don't see the positives and are not embracing the changes taking place. The alarmists are insecurists, mainly because they themselves have tainted the growth. Why would someone embrace a systematic growth based on interoperation, especially when it's becoming independent? There is no longer portioning of life's daily bread and water. Knowledge and experience.
Every major social institution which includes; science, religion and politics, are at the mercy of this organic growth. These institutions are running scared. Knowledge is no longer limited to geo-ecomonical classes. This organic change, like most, will take time to mature. It will need to be nurtured and cultivated through it's pubescent stages. Most likely taking one generation. Maybe two if society decides it want's to smother it's new-born like an over protective mother and father, unwilling to except their own coming of age. Their child being smarter then they are. Unwilling to acknowledge and communicate with it.
The commercial market has become the first victim of this change. Corporate America is running as well. Scholastic and academia are soon to follow. With the last being, the faith-based institution. One needs to have a faith of a sort. I would imagine one's personal propensity would satisfy this need but if the academic system gives way first then it stands to reason, one's faith will be replaced by one's own knowledge set-sagacity. One will believe in one's self and their acquired knowledge, applying it intelligently.
The initial problem with this growth lies in the availability of knowledge. The system's of the past, guiding a select few to the rosette-stone of life. Economic defining who knows what Today, for the cost of an ISP, one has access to anything at their own lesiure. Oh-sacry indeed.
Today access to the accumulated knowledge of our past is being presented untainted, unedited. Nothing inferred by an over zealous teacher, politician or religious figure. Knowledge remains absolute, only if one knows it exists. Many have access to information and many have made contributions to this organic growth. We all have access to the same information. With the advent of the internet, communication is free. Knowledge is free. Education, becomes organic. A scary thought for those who wish to put their children in private schools. Afraid they will not be able to cope with the world and it's unsettling truths. Possibly because the parents themselves have tainted the knowledge and never knew how to embrace our cousins. The world is growing too. Let's embrace it.
Save the internet.
