Fastforward.

Hundreds of years later the world is much different.
Plato and Aristotle would not be pleased by the imitation they see now.
Everything is much different, but the critical questions are all the same.

We're still asking WHAT? HOW? and WHY?!?!?
Maybe even more so than they were asking before.

We're living in a world where everything is constructed by discourse.
But that discourse is given to us by the MEDIA.

We live in an overly-mediated world.
We are subjected to the media;
It is nearly impossible to separate oneself.

There are hundreds of new technologies.
Technology is now a part of the everyday world.
We become inseparable from technology.
And it is changing out brains.
It is changing how we think, what we think, and how much we can think.


It is compressing our knowledge, with the possibility of expanding it.
It is fragmenting, summarizing, and oversimplifying the concerns of everyday life.
But now everything is readily available in a way that was never thought of before,
At just the press of a button, and a search on the internet.

But it is unknown or undisclosed how this is effecting not only out minds, but our bodies as well.
And that is a scary thought.
