I was going to write something important here, but then I lost it.

It’s all bouncing around in my head, but impossible to place into coherent words. Oh well. Is this what people call ADHD?

I even wrote some quick notes:

– information
– on importance
– on the minimum threshold
– on specific knowledge
– on usefulness (impact)
– on rarity and the finiteness of useful knowledge and the devaluation of the individual life
– on the decrease in rarity with the offsiting of knowledge onto the online hive-mind
– on the shift from importance of knowledge to the importance of experiences
– on the failure of the education system to adapt to this shift in focus (teaching things that no longer need to be taught)

Not sure what my point is or if there even is one.

I read this article about ants and it basically said that each individual ant just has basic instincts to follow scent, to move around, detect their immediate surroundings, random roaming, and not tread on each other. Like little machines that can work autonomously and be lost without too much concern. The end result increases the survival of the anthill. The loss of individuality and that feeling of personal importance feels like an affront, but maybe  we should be more like ants.

A skeuomorph is a derivative object that retains ornamental design cues to a structure that was necessary in the original. Skeuomorphs may be deliberately employed to make the New look comfortably old and familiar.

I think what you think is the most important and, possibly, the only thought in my head at all times.
