Connecting from my last post about how science has provided the swiftest communication between individuals, I went deeper into finding out how the communication level and the technologies have improved.
The sites that I have visited explains the history and the steps that people took to have the advanced communication technologies that we have now. It talks about the speed, quality, and the accessibility; and one of the most interesting part was where it said how the “communication methods such as instant messengers and video conferencing have increased the volume of communications but reduced their average length”(Ginny Edwards)
“Science has provided the swiftest communication between individuals; it has provided a record of ideas and has enabled man to manipulate and to make extracts from that record so that knowledge evolves and endures throughout the life of a race rather than that of an individual.” (1)
I really agree with this part of the article. It is very true how science improved our way of communicating and made it more efficient through new technologies and what not. Through those improvements, we were able to adapt to more advanced technologies and it kept us curious and helped us to receive new knowledge and moving forward.
I found it very interesting how the thinker noticed that people do not really try to learn or are able to learn if they are not interested or entertained by the subject. When I was reading the thinker’s blog, I was able to connect it to myself because if I find something boring and not interesting at all, I am not able to focus, participate, or understand the subject unlike when I find a certain topic that is very interesting to me, I search more about it, I do extra work, I am able to focus and learn about it for hours.The thinker talks about their deep interest in museums that has fine arts, and I was able to really relate with her since I myself love art museums. It made me imagine different kinds of people interested in different things and people only succeeding in things that they are truly interested or entertained by.
