    What Were / Are Better Times?

    1) The day when you had to rely on what was between your ears and utilized pens, pencils, paper and books for communication and knowledge?

    Or................................................ .............

    2) The day when you mostly utilized electronic devices for communication and knowledge, with little matter what exists between your ears?

    Happy replying.

    They are devices of the devil. Mankind shall suffer ultimately. You need the vision to comprehend.

    Dinosaurish, too way back for my taste. Hieroglyphics makes me walk like an Egyptian

    Gutenberg, Senefelder and Durer were more in the time frame when I was born. Enough Art and Science from these fellows for the world to swallow.

    Color TV is OK too. Stop right there.

    As far as I know, George Jetson and Barney Rubble from the flintstones are creatures from the Hanna/Barbera Studio which once was moved obviously by thoughts like What Were / Are Better Times?

    Ulrich, I do not have a dark mood about the past, present or future. I can only present what I have lived, where I am at and perhaps where mankind is going. In my mind I am just being a realist based on the time I have spent on this wonderful planet of ours.

    I don't want to become blinded by the light.

    But I do like George Jetson. Didn't he have a friend named Barney Rubble?

    Damn it's been so long since I held a pen lol. Though I am nostalgic about the times when lives were simpler and we used what we got "between our ears", life right now is not so bad. All thanks to the internet!

    Ok, back to the original post subject. I admit it is a very difficult to choose which times are better.

    Many of the forum members can only read about the pens, pencils, books and paper era in history books. Oh wait; there are no history books, but at least they can read about those times on Wikipedia.

    In retrospect, this was really an unfair question. The reason is that you actually had to LIVE it yourself, experience it wholly in the actual times of the epoch.

    Alas, the question of this post will continue to fade as time goes by as hard material like ink on real paper heads to the fate of extinction after a epic run. But it may bring up another question! What will eventually lead to the extinction of pure electronic communication? The end.

    The end!?!?

    You receive knowledge when someone tells you to do something. You receive understanding when that person explains why to do something the way it's been told to do.
