why go back?

why repeat mistakes? it was not entirely a golden age. after all, it gave rise to the problems we face today. besides, you can’t step in the same river twice, but can we learn something from our soakers? eisenstein writes, ‘Because we have so long associated technology with the qualities of fire—separating, purifying, consuming—some of the new technologies that will define the Age of Reunion we might hesitate to even call by that name. Others will seem mundane or even archaic to us today. There will be a revival of technologies thousands of years old, mixed with new inventions so unexpected as to seem miraculous.’ however, perhaps nature is neither linear (fire) nor cyclical (water), but both: helical. if you’ve been reading this blog, you’ve seen this before. what do you think?
