I got this idea in my head, but I just can’t get a grip on it yet. This is the thing: I’m into science and technology (well I’m interested in the stuff). As we all might have experienced is that scientific ‘progress’ has (under the influence of computers) excelled tremendously the last decades. In fact at this time we reached a point where 1st graders learn stuff which is outdated by the time they graduate. This will only be more truth in the near future.
What does it mean I wonder. By the time knowledge reaches the general public, scientist have alleady found a new and ‘better’ paradigm. Will knowledge/education keep it’s status? Will we think of knowledge as something desirable in the future? Schools will have to progress to…. What will they teach the children in the (near) future? Will dogma’s get a bigger role in decision making (has it already started?)? How will we deal with this?
