Options March 5, 2012: The Long Now Foundation: Brian Eno - The Long Now

THE LONG NOW FOUNDATION: BRIAN ENO – THE LONG NOW

Eno discusses the origins of his realizations about the "small here" versus the "big here" and the "short now" versus the "long now." He noted that the Big Here is pretty well popularized now, with exotic restaurants everywhere, "world" music, globalization, and routine photos of the whole earth. Instant world news and the internet has led to increased empathy worldwide. But empathy in space has not been matched by empathy in time. If anything, empathy for people to come has decreased. We seem trapped in the Short Now. The present generation enjoys the greatest power in history, but it appears to have the shortest vision in history. That combination is lethal. http://longnow.org/seminars/02003/nov/14/the-long-now/
