The dynamic events that set up the conditions for life to flourish created pathways through which information flows. The vastness of these pathways is unknown and in perpetual flux. Our curiosity about this unknown entices us onto these pathways which lead us to knowledge. It is via language and discourse this knowledge is then passed into the future as we move along these pathways and gather the necessary information for survival. We can now hear that which was both a success and not.
Moreover, these pathways inform aspects of our identity such as goals and motivation. When acting out our identities in the form of organisations our goals and motivations manifest themselves into knowledgeable ideas that can form a collective understanding that pulls us into proximity with one another.
It is through great inventions like the Alphabet, numbers and ultimately, books and information technology we, as individuals and our organisations can process this knowledge and more accurately prepare for the future. It is with these inventions we have created new pathways making them the most significant tools for humanity to navigate into the future. Even though this pathway does get used for both positive and negative ends, this grand narrative we all experience continues to head in a predominately positive direction.
It is now that we can stand back and visualise the information flowing through these pathways and process them to see the complex arrangements of information caught in a state of interplay. What bargain with the future will we make?
