  • Nov 6 2013: Perhaps.....
    As Singularity comes into a fuller manifestation in society, your ability to accumulate and access Knowledge will be less valued and less needed for what is now at your fingertips on your smartphone will one day be integrated with the brain. YOUR IMAGINATION will be greatly enhanced by EXTRAPOLATIVE POWER OF THE COMPUTER. But, being human, we tend to seek external security for ourselves........thus, there will be an inevitable FIGHT between Imagination & Extrapolation. There will exist the same tension that already resides within us.....

    Still, we cram knowledge into children's brains.
