Significance. Meaning. Why.
Slow cooker stuff in a microwave world.
It’s not that there’s nothing to eat. According to this Dutch expert, as of yesterday, there were 1.8 billion pages available for consumption on the web, countless digital volumes available from Amazon, and a plethora of paper housed in our libraries.
Granted, it’s not all junk food, but the more nutritious stuff takes time to digest. Dwindling bandwidth leaves us too tired to cook, much less to look inside and process, so we reach for a bag of cheesy external sound bytes instead.
When do we think?
Stealing time from the middle of the night, as I did to write this post, is one answer.
What could you do to make time to think?
What will you think about?
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance, and this, and not the external manner and detail, is true reality. -Aristotle
