The latest subjects come pre-packaged with aprioritic interface. Information arrives in packets; converting it into knowledge is merely the ends of a pre-determined operation: luckily, it won’t hurt much. Why pass through all the names in history when they are already caged in front of you? We know what the moon looks like; we know how tall Napoleon was; we know who killed JFK. Packet loss: a madman is measuring the coastline in perpetuity. Constantly novel nodular connective tissue short circuits knowledge compilation. A gluttonous feast of information with no usable synthesis. They say it can’t be known but positive feedback knowledge operations stimulate any system which does not try to kill itself. Information is only dead on arrival if you give it the chance to arrive. After all, in between is as good a place to settle as any.
