From Another Century
Words from a Dylan song, “Something There is About You” are in the title of this post. I happen to be listening to Pandora Radio my alternative country station. Would a person from a previous century tell the difference in time by just standing in one place and observing? Here I go with questions again. I’ve told people recently to write me articles without questions. I say, “Don’t ask the reader questions. They want you to tell ’em stuff.” Works for me.
I’m writing this post out of obligation. I feel like I need to do this for myself. I need to write stuff down. I need to tell people stuff. Future kin. Grand kids and their kids may someday read this. Perhaps even a century from now. I wonder if we will even need to write things down. Maybe it will all just be in cyberspace for easy access at anytime into eternity. Woe!
The future is scary to me. I wonder if others feel the same. Worry about what will come. Looking at the present and projecting it into the future is unimaginable to me. If someone had told me when I was a child about the technology of today I probably would not have believed it. Just as I am unable to imagine what the future will hold. I can imagine, but I can’t know. And I imagine that there will be things that I do not even have an inkling will exist. Like I imagine that telepathy will be possible, but that may just be the tip of the iceberg.
I read Wired magazine. I’ve read it since it was published by the Freedom Foundation and everything WAS wired. Now we send out data through the air. lol And how do you know I’m really a human sitting at a keyboard typing this in? (Sorry for the question.) I could be a bot, just playing around.
