Nothing is as central to human experience as connectivity. Indeed, man’s progress has always hinged on our ability to relate interpersonally, to form healthy relations between ourselves and our non-human surroundings, and to holistically grasp the resulting interdependencies via advanced cognitive schemes whose aggregation of outer world complexity and intrapersonal measures of simplification enables us to observe and act upon connections of which beings shallower than man know nought. So man has forever ventured forth, brilliantly sprawling amongst the dynamics of an ever changing world, and yet always, somehow, managing to catch up.

For all this disruptive continuity, the frequency of one kind of change is accelerating at troubling pace: The sort of change that is extrapersonal and intrasocietal, produced by humans yet overseen by none. Societies ravaged by such change are often referred to as information societies or network societies (some, basking in lay imprecision, just call them fluid). The «whole picture» grows more HD by the minute, leaving us with ever more dots to connect in order to see said picture. How can one thrive, or even cope, in such an environment?

In the midst of society’s information highways, all equally vital to any individual in search of substantial knowledge as opposed to the kind of tabloid tidbits that is being thrown at us in our every waking moment and with a ferocity that leaves even the most intellectually gifted among us gasping for fresh air, ɔ: actual thoughts, lies institutions whose employees go to work every day with the sole purpose of helping you identify the positions in the information flow where you may most strongly wish to situate yourself in order to have your human potential morph into tangible flourishing. Equal with Gods, aspiring to be such, they search and find. Once you have decided upon your informational needs and wish for a specific physical document from our vast collection of such to be gathered and laid into your hands, I might just be able to help you with that.
