Today I encountered a moment when I actually felt that information brings power.
I mean mental power. All of a sudden we can have a change of perspective.
It may be that we cannot “control” the evolutionary mechanisms that drive our behaviors, but we can learn to observe them and assign our moods a less mythical and over-rated label.
And this, my friend, could be the first step from hundreds of thousands of years towards… maybe homo rationalis?
P.S. Could Power equal Information multiplied by c2?
