“Who would have thought?”
Experts are always marveling at what people in the past were able to accomplish with limited technology. The answer is simple – they thought more than we do. When you add up the percentage of our modern technological and scientific endeavors that are given over to thinking: it’s shockingly little.
And yet, isn’t thinking is the first/best tool we should be reaching for to solve our problems and build the future?
And thinking is not only necessary to decide what we should do – but also to decide what we shouldn’t do.
Just as newer technologies race to correct the damage that their earlier iterations have created – so do we race to complete all the steps we need to ensure our existence for the completion of future steps – ever climbing out of a mess that is ever growing.
We’ve become hoarders of experts and authorities, fear and anxiety – until we can’t move around in our own lives for the detritus of decision making.
