Everyone says the 21st century is the information century, and even complains of too much information, but I disagree. All the information we get is fragmented, halfbaked. I’ll give you an example of lots of information: I was in Bali recently, and I walked around barefoot on the hotel’s stone floors. Eventually my feet began to go numb. That actually felt really good. The amount of information my feet were picking up was enormous. The human brain likes to receive massive amounts of information. The technology and media today give us very little, so our brains are unhappy. I’m looking forward to a sense-driven world, after the end of the technology-driven phase.
