It is safe to say that nobody can ever know everything. There is so much knowledge being created, and found, every second of every day, and all over the world, that keeping up is literally impossible.
It is much more practical to be the one who is creating new knowledge in one area, than to try to tackle everything that already exists in all areas.
It is also safe to say that the purpose of man is to create. We were given hands, and tools, and means to use them. No other animal has the ability to create to the extent that we can. We take abstract ideas in our minds and make them into realities. We are problem solvers, and solution builders.
We are in a infinite loop of creation, where everyday, there is more than there was before.
Some people would find this thought overwhelming, or frustrating. As soon as you climb one mountain, you can then see an even higher one in the distance left to tackled. But this to me is reassuring.
It is very gratifying to be the one to get to the top of the mountain that no one else has climbed, and then be the one to discover another mountain.
Even if you never get to climb the next one, you can be assured that someone else will, and progress will be made because of you.
Knowledge and information are the lifeblood of society. Without it, there would be no progress.
The internet and computer age has transformed the world in 25 short years, because of all of the knowledge that has become infinitely more accessible than it was before.
It has taken a country like Colombia, who just 15 years ago was still riddled with gorillas, scared and suppressed citizens, and militant mindsets, and it has transformed it into a safe, thriving, and practical culture where ideas are shared and discussed openly, and wifi, high class cafe’s and very computer literate designers and programmers are common place.
It is important that knowledge be infinite in it’s nature. If it wasn’t, things would get pretty boring, and probably pretty bad. It’s the reason for such a big fuss about Google filtering their content in certain countries.
Knowledge acquisition has actually gotten ever more important than ever before, because of the internet.
Computers and the web give us the tool, and the space, to store all of the knowledge society acquires, without much overhead. And, It can then be accessed any time with something as simple as a Google search.
This is truly power. With this power, and basic human drive mixed together, it is safe to say that the progress of society as a whole will begin to speed up exponentially, adding more knowledge to the database, and leaving more of a reason for each person to focus on one niche, and build upon it as high as possible.
This is an amazing time to be alive. I would urge us all to take advantage of what’s being given to us, and not just focus on everything that is already here, and just stare in amazement, but actually access the root of our true nature, and take charge of innovating and pioneering ourselves, so that knowledge’s infinite structure can be strengthened faster, and our progress can truly make life better.
It is not enough to stand by and watch others make the big leaps and climb the big mountains. With knowledge being literally unlimited, it is extremely important that we get everyone involved, so we can solve the crucial problems even faster. Also, with all of the tools we have at our disposal today, it’s easier than ever before to innovate. All it takes is gathering the right information using the web, and sorting it out using our analytical and naturally-problem-solving minds.
I’m looking forward to a bright future that I helped build. I encourage you to help too, and you should encourage everyone you know to do the same. If this happens, the world will be an infinitely better place.
