Never before in human history has there been so much information competing for our attention as there is today. We are inundated with so much information — most of it trivial — that it affects our ability to think and keep our sanity.
The information we are made to believe we need has made us more ignorant than informed, which is antithetical to what information is supposed to do. Our mind has become overloaded — overcharged — that it tripped and shut down, losing its ability to think, to be reflective, to process and discover the wisdoms it needs and help us function as a human being living among other human beings and within a universe that we share with other beings.
