It worries me that you can search in seconds for any bit of trivia, or indeed profundity.
It reminds me of “The Time Machine” by H. G. Wells, when the time traveller finds all the books disintegrating in the future.
Does it matter that your average teenager does not know where their holiday destination is on the map, they just know the plane goes there? I mean, they could always google it, if they wanted to know.
Is there benefit in knowing things, or is it enough to know we could know things if we wanted/needed to?
Maybe I should google that.
I’d probably arrive here…
