pedro jose dos santos neto Posted over 1 year ago People aren't smarter than they were, it's the information technology that makes information more available which broadens their horizons. I don't think the problem is how smart we are now if comparing with how smart we were. The big deference is how we use our intelligence now. It's clearly in a different way. We have too much information and knowledge now, but the speed of changes do not allow penetrate deep the information. Tomorrow something that we believe as true can be a big mistake. Nevertheless, we have to remember that this is the more productive era in the human history. We've never generated as knowledge and cutting-edge science as today.
