Knowledge cannot be murdered, imprisoned or buried. Yet it can be insulted or oppressed (easily?).
Knowledge is something that cannot be stolen easily. That is a very old saying, I know. Yet, is it applicable to the modern day world we live? It is a question often appears before us. Modernity is something created on the knowledge bases of past. What you see today is a changed or modified version of the knowledge of the ancients. In other words, according to my knowledge, it is a copy paste of the knowledge invented by the people of yester years, slightly adjusted according to the needs and wants of the people of today.
Technology connects people with each other. At the same times, does it helps or provide environ to depart people from each other, if so in what ways? Isn’t that something that we should pay attention to when dealing with people or with technology, especially when every action has a result?
And, what else these technologies, the men or women of yester years have innovated, good in doing, in the modern day world? If I say that it allows people to depress or oppress or depress people in various or numerous ways, other than impressing each other from their findings or innovations, what would you say?
Some people who boast or talk about all existing ethics and rights of knowledge or of all other things in public, use the tech we know or have learned to peep into other people’s lives. Though we are experiencing or embracing so called ‘modernity’, modernization’, or advancement of sciences, technology today, what some people have not understood yet is that they can not control other people’s lives through this very same tech we boast about. But for sure, it can be used to disrupt, disturb but it is solely depends on again mind sets of people, mental status of human lives.
The other thing what some people do today or most people do today is that they are so fond of using modern hybrid tech in its high demand or highest forms, levels, to collate , collect various information related to lives of relevant or often irrelevant people in various ways yet from surfaces , picking one or two things that were flown towards then else where or from a known places, use to depress or oppress people, using their own intelligent strategies.
Unfortunately, people rarely, or at least half of the population or more than that do not use technology for something useful. There is a category, I can name that for some use technology for other things totally irrelevant or inapplicable or bring no results to their lives in its total meaning or to the lives of the associations, associates but some pleasure temporary.
Oppressing can be done very many ways or even mobbing comes under same category with a different package though.
What we are do using the modern tech, role modeling before the children of today, you need to think what results it would bring at the end.
Technology is one of the most powerful tools that the students of today or people of the modern day world own and use.
People always or mostly or often, rarely holds the opinions opposite to each other. But that doesn’t provide anyone the license to oppress or depress anyone. Alliances arise on various reasons, aiming at various targets, objectives. Even a small ally plays an immensely important role in promoting things, such as knowledge packages, at the same time formal or informal allies known locally or internationally can be used for various purposes. If you take village level ‘seetu kandayam (one of the savings group, an informal ally) or there are other informal allies or groups called ‘gossips’ ( I think it’s a world wide ally). The special features of these groups depending on the aims or nature of the group, objectives of the groups, they are temporarily and do not lasts for long. What I am trying to say picking these examples is that ‘people can use the same tech or strategy they use for such purposes obviously can be used for something very prominent or useful for the group they are working or doing on be half. Completion or gaining or collating knowledge on the subjects you deal with certainly should be ‘healthy’ I must say, for all the parties involved in. your objectives or your aims cannot be full filled or your aims cannot be achieved or even your enemies cannot be defeated using unhealthy or unethical strategies, that is the wonder of technology or sacredness of knowledge.
Yes, it is true that some of the ancient, great cities no more appearing or visible, do not exist before us, for all us to travel around or journeying around picking and choosing what ever facts or knowledge bases we like, in its original format, what I believe is that what you don’t see today is only the structures or what they have built originally , the ruins or what ever remains witnessing, shares every or most knowledge fact with others, or helps to see through the knowledge of past and that cannot be stopped or buried, I realized after watching the documentary of Ms. Hughs.
I have not been to Egypt or to any ancient or modern city other than to the Maldives. So this amazing technology that the past has innovated helped me to live a few moments in Great Alexandria. It is amazing to read or view that ‘how difficult it is to build something and how fast things decay or destroy or collapse. So thanks to this amazing technology, we get chances to share this information, knowledge innovated or surfaced in another region or zone or continent. Yes, according to what the emperor of Alexandria or Ms. Hughs believes, it is true that ‘Knowledge is power’, and I like to add something to what they believe that is ‘very same knowledge rules the world’. Just think for a while, how dependent are we on this ‘technology called internet, information technology. Therefore there is no harm in saying that ‘there is no power above the knowledge power’. Sustainability of any other power depends on the power, knowledge, how they basically use them.
Yes, great histories cannot be buried in tombs. I say no point doing so because it is something no man can do easily or purposely.
I must say, that I didn’t target anyone by writing this. This is a topic chosen to look at the technology and its uses in a different angle.
Intentionally or unintentionally or else tensionally oppressing others on what ever purpose, kills or murders the essential cells of the human brain and that leads to disasters, nothing else. Let’s use the technology for a better purpose, for its own enhancement, development and for the enhancement, in its true meaning, for the mankind.
Actually this is a subject that you can talk about endlessly. You can think of many facets of it.
Let's save 'technology' by using it for a better purpose
