Changing concepts of knowledge

 

 

“….If search technology continues to evolve at its current pace, will we eventually get to the point where those who are regarded as learned are simply those who are skilled at searching? Or — to return to Biblical phraseology — will the search engines inherit the earth?….”¹ (Naughton, J.)

An answer:

At the current pace, one can have a list, a very long listing, of potential searches on offer via the engines on the internet, but the passengers (the actual end-users) in the carriage coaches are the driving forces, that have to make stops at certain places, to different locations. They do not travel straight from A to Z, unless they go by a non-stop express booking. Which takes them directly there to that locality, to see whether its agreeable as their final destination. Or — to return to Biblical phraseology — so will the end-users go forth and multiply their knowledge too!
