When We Are No More: How Digital Memory Is Shaping Our Future

Abby Smith Rumsey

Best price for this book: $ 8.98

Buy

Our memory gives the human species a unique evolutionary advantage. Our stories, ideas, and innovations--in a word, our "culture"--can be recorded and passed on to future generations. Our enduring culture and restless curiosity have enabled us to invent powerful information technologies that give us invaluable perspective on our past and define our future. Today, we stand at the very edge of a vast, uncharted digital landscape, where our collective memory is stored in ephemeral bits and bytes and lives in air-conditioned server rooms. What sources will historians turn to in 100, let alone 1,000 years to understand our own time if all of our memory lives in digital codes that may no longer be decipherable?

In When We Are No More Abby Smith Rumsey explores human memory from pre-history to the present to shed light on the grand challenge facing our world--the abundance of information and scarcity of human attention. Tracing the story from cuneiform tablets and papyrus scrolls, to movable type, books, and the birth of the Library of Congress, Rumsey weaves a compelling narrative that explores how humans have dealt with the problem of too much information throughout our history, and indeed how we might begin solve the same problem for our digital future. Serving as a call to consciousness, When We Are No More explains why data storage is not memory; why forgetting is the first step towards remembering; and above all, why memory is about the future, not the past.

"If we're thinking 1,000 years, 3,000 years ahead in the future, we have to ask ourselves, how do we preserve all the bits that we need in order to correctly interpret the digital objects we create? We are nonchalantly throwing all of our data into what could become an information black hole without realizing it." --Vint Cerf, Chief Evangelist at Google, at a press conference in February, 2015.

Abby's Guide To Deep Meditation: A Step-by-Step Process for Going Within

Abby Gail Smith

Best price for this book: $ 0

Buy
Have you ever tried to "be still" and meditate, only to have your mind continue to wander back and forth? So frustrating! Some people seem to be able to do it so easy. Abby Gail has been actively practicing and teaching Deep Meditation for Christians classes, and in counseling sessions for some time now. And it is because of the many wonderful benefits that she and her students and clients have witnessed, that she has been hard pressed to share this process with other Christians. In this manual on deep meditation, she shares her technique for "stilling the mind."


In her first book, "Abby's Between Girlfriends: A Sharing of Marital Secrets," she talked about having a happy marriage and being happy in marriage. She has found deep meditation to be a source of happiness for her. As the kids grew older and entered into early, and then, late teens, deep meditation was a tool in helping her stay focused and not "sweat the small stuff." Deep meditation helps her stay centered and true to herself and her destiny.
