The Internet of Trees

The more I travel, the more I understand how one group, or even one person influences another person who in turn, starts up a new way of living or a discovery that changes everything, or a revolution. But we don’t learn about the collaboration, we just learn the name of the last man standing.   We are taught history and in fact, everything, as separate as discrete objects to be studied in separate classes, at different times.  We need to do it that way of course because the volume of information is otherwise overwhelming and we need an educational organization system to manage it all.

But as we age and connect more and more, those silos of knowledge and information start to  merge.  It’s rather fascinating.

Here is a long video on the idea that the tree of knowledge, the tree of anything, is giving way to the web of knowledge and the web of life:

What does the future hold?

#CatharineBramkampWriter poemDo we live in the moment?  Probably not, we plan, organize and wish for better futures, not realizing that this is the future we dreamt of in our childhood, or as teens.  I have to remember that.  Especially when I’m on the fourth floor of the Muse d’Orsay.
