Information <> Wisdom

Information — we look for it when we need to understand something. To know what is right, wrong, true, or false. Information should lead to knowledge and wisdom. It becomes useful, helping us to navigate the world, build relationships and.. well… survive.

But what if there is too much of it? What if our schools and upbringing didn’t prepare us for a time where memorizing information is a skill with little use? What if we are incapable of making sense and filtering through the never-ending stream of stuff that keeps pouring out our devices? How do we choose the information that helps us, our society, our planet? How do we know if we have created an echo chamber, without realizing it…?

Food for thought? Let us at Blue Sky Republic know what you think!
