now and then

True indeed -- evolution of terminology to capture desire.

I wonder if we collectively use as few words as possible in our vocabularies, partly because the younger generations do not read as much as previous ones, so in order to transmit ideas, we look to a baseline term that isn't fully understood or accurately defined, but it conveys an idea.

Re: now and then

conveys an idea? more like has associations. modern world culture is dominated by sound bites and advertising photography. for darwinian reasons that which is communicated is that which can be perceived in the few seconds that we make up out mind whether to change the channel or not. The option of 999 channels conditions us to make our choice quickly or we may miss what we are looking for. That is one condition of learning and communication now.

I am remembering that it is up to those who find something of value or truth to place it upon an alter. To honor it and to protect it. I am speaking of identifying and elevating ideas. Although there are the foibles of clickishness and fascism and religion to avoid. So the goal should be learning and appreciation and celebration.

Gawd. I so hesitate to put these words out, even among the dozen or so that might read it. Sounds pretty pompous. I think I am trying to rev myself up to do something or other. Take on a new project. But hopefully it will result in something pretty and entertaining and appreciated by the intelligentia among the peers I have chosen.

and yet ...

... whether it pleases you ought to be of paramount importance!
