Information has become commoditized. To create information is fine, but to control access to that information is key. Google has staked its fortune to providing sifters for controlling access to the memory of the world.
The internet expands the world, but information is forever compressing:
Information gets smaller as it gets faster and it lasts longer — you wouldn’t think that would be physically possible but that’s the greatness of science and innovation at work.
There are only so many things that are knowable in the world and as we uncover the secrets of the limited universe, each fact becomes it own secret, and the truth folds in on itself once, twice and then three times.
To uncover the core of human truth surrounding all information, we must expand the understanding protecting the truth — and that can be dangerous — because there are some in the world that will never allow an unraveling truth telling.
The duty of science is to take us willingly into the future as everything around us compresses into misunderstanding — and it is only through the individual wondering of an expanding mind that we are able to comprehend the past, our now, and the future pressure that will mangle all of us into unrecognizable nanobits and terabytes for commoditization.
