Transcendent Techs Part Deuce
'e-' or 'i-' prefix. Totally Analog. RAM-Random Access Memory accomplished by opening the "BOOK" to different pages collected in sub-folders referred to as Stories and Chapters.
This particular book was printed in 1882, 133 years ago. Transcendent tech-today's date
right next to it is applied automatically by my camera. We read both.
A few days ago I achieved surviving the anniversary of my life beginning (according to the ACLU): my birthday. It was very nice, and the crochet scarf behind the book was a gift from a dear friend. She and her husband invited me over for dinner, and it all made the birthday anniversary exceptional.
I show off the lovely scarf here as example of ancient technology still in use/warming us today.
Finally...my glasses. Those of us with impaired vision only have clarity due to glasses prescribed to our exact visual needs. The ancients-Caesar, Pontius Pilate, King Henry the Eighth, Don Cervantes...may have had good and interesting lives, but accepted a 'blurry world' as Reality.
OUR REALITY is clearer than theirs, and those of us impaired appreciate what we have.
Try walking around your house without your glasses for awhile, and you might appreciate it all more.
Transcendent Techs-we live in a melange of cultures/techs from all eras. Cool.
