Read all about it

From newspapers to blogs.

Imagine a time before television. A time when one could only receive information from books and newspapers, and only much later on, the radio. You could of decided which book, or article, or parchment, or hieroglyph you wished to assimilate.

Then came along the trusty television. The thing we all turn to for information and entertainment. But more than anything else, as you may have noticed, advertisements. Love them or hate them is up to the individual, but I know what it is that I like thank you.

Now I am communicating with you over the internet. No paper, no trouble, no effort, just reading someones blog entry. How easy is this compared to searching some tomb for a parchment you wasn’t even sure existed? But there were some in the past who wanted, needed this knowledge, understanding and ideas more than anything else and went after it. We can all find many examples of these individuals if we think for a second.

So we have come a long way from the printing press. Surely this is a good thing? I can read peoples thoughts and communicate with them anywhere in the world. If they have an internet connection of course. Telepathy is not easily attained.

So choose what information you receive wisely. If you want to be happier, try not to watch so much news. If you want to be smarter, read any book. And if you want to get better at some thing. Practice it!

  1. Some good advice there. Because information is widely and freely available on the internet then the lazy and stupid tarnish it, thus a filtering system of questioning and checking sources is always required.

    • Exactly! I prefer to get my information from books I know I can trust. I really don’t use the Internet very much because there is so much useless information out there. It comes down to what we value. What is important to the individual, then put your blinkers on and gather what it is you require.
