One side says the boat was sent early--in advance, the other side says the boat is sitting around collecting dust. And none of us are eye witnesses, none of us are in administrative positions to know which is true. Both sides could cite sources, but neither side will believe the sources provided by the other. The research necessary to confirm what we used to accept could be obtained from trustworthy sources, is prohibitive and inconclusive.

Information doesn't exist anymore.

Since the dawn of time, when we developed verbal, then written language, the printing press, the telegraph, magnetic disk, we've been building a civilization based on the exchange of information, as a reliable, actionable commodity. We had a good run, folks!
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.
