Someday this will be lost

October 28, 2006

Anything can happen, and anything will happen. This will be gone, only no one knows when. All will be gone. So why does one (and me, for that matter) persist in recording text that in X years no one will understand? Does anyone even understand now?

Maybe it’s hope, maybe it’s the instinct for the preservation of the species; to record what we know, to teach all we have learnt (in my case, however, it might be very little). Perhaps a response of teaching would be acclaim; popularity. A ‘good’ response. Is that why people seek to ‘teach’, to ‘tell’? To acheive the satisfactory reaction of acclaim? Acclaim being a sign that the knowledge has been passed on, and thus satisfaction results?

What is considered knowledge?
