Five Days, Five Quotes: Day One
Recently I was invited to participate in an exercise which involved posting a fresh quotation on each of three days and also tagging three more folk each day. Here is a sequel, but with a difference. The quotation bit remains the same but I won’t be burdening anyone else. 🙂 And this time there will be five days rather than three.
This is Day One.
“Information can exist outside the human brain. In the forms of codex systems, genetic symbols, and transitory energy networks, information is routinely stored and processed in ways that do not involve the human brain. From this it becomes apparent that not only are we are swimming in a sea of information but we are actually and quite literally made of information in the same way that we are made of matter and energy.” – Joseph R. Shuster.
And if there’s anyone wondering what to read after they finish up their current book may I recommend “Lexicon” by Max Barry? If you do decide to read it you will understand why I mention it in this context.
