“That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing itself has changed, but our power to do it has increased.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Since the beginning of the 21st century, the amount of information instantly available to us has increased a thousandfold. Looking for answers today has become a challenge not of finding, but of sifting through….  And it’s not just information, per se.  It is the rhetoric of the global Internet-connected chat room where smart people with opinions assemble data, then analyze and interpret them for us.  And here’s another thing: Much of this secondary information is so well – and persuasively –presented that it feels like experience.  When secondary information feels like experience, we often accept it as truth… truth that is equal to the truth we know from experience.” -Mark Ford
