Ideas Disappearing

We live in a moment of history where change is so speeded up that we begin to see the present only when it is already disappearing.
R. D. Laing

Sometimes I wonder why we struggle to share what we know and communicate with each other when we are surrounded by a virtual arsenal of communications tools. Well, when you think about it, it is pretty simple. Things change so quickly that we have no time to consider what to do with what we learned yesterday. We are being forced to consume something new today.

What would happen if you didn't learn anything new tomorrow and you could invest the whole day in thinking about what you learned today? Your thoughts would probably be clearer - but lets face it, that will never happen.

So what you learn is disappearing around you. Well, I think the only thing to do is to discipline ourselves into committing our ideas and thoughts into a form where they will not be forgotten. Take this blog or the millions of others. Some people ask why blogs are taking off. I think the disappearance of the idea is part of the answer.

We all want what we treasure to last. Where do your ideas go?
