We are so inundated with electronics, constant connections with others for no reason at all except daily routines, ... it creates in us a need for these constant contacts. Pointless they may be. Harmless, mostly. What it tends to prevent is any deep thinking, mulling over the conditions of this world, and any artistic or creative direction, be it painting, writing, poetry, discovery, or inventive ideas, etc.
I fear for the future, we may well be hooked up and have to receive down loads directly into our brains. How terrifying is that?
Father God, we know thou art the creator of the universe, we praise and trust thy Scriptures, we look to thee to watch over thy peoples, we belong to thee in our desire to please and love thee, we ask for direction in these troubling times, without thee we can do no thing, forgive us our trespasses as we forgive others who trespasses against us, let us not be deceived. Help us in this day and this coming year, we cry out for the peace of Israel, Jerusalem, for the persecuted believers, and for America, bless the lost, our enemies, our leaders and restore us to our faith in thee daily, we thank thee for thy myriad blessings showered upon us daily, in Jesus name, amen.
Which reminds me of something someone noticed once about the very, very rich. They don't have schedules, they have availabilities which they pay staff to dole out to the audience-seekers. In token of which, they don't wear watches. That's because the world is on their time, not vice versa.
I'm not particularly concerned (yet) with information overload, but rather with information's being choked off by the politically vicious.
