Dilemma of Knowledge

Graphical representation of knowledge in forms of alphabet is too hard to visualize. Knowledge or previous experience was first gained orally when human beings learned to speak. Then arose a need to preserve knowledge in exact form,which was not possible through verbal mode. So, gradually words were given shapes/symbols to represent knowledge. In the industrial age machines were invented for mass production of knowledge in forms of text.

Its a great sense of hypocrisy that we still use the same means of knowledge transmission that was used by our forefathers, even after achieving many technological breakthroughs like television, digital media and currently we have 3D (the tag-line – Experience it in 3D).
