Reading
Reading is pivotal because the stories that we read (or tell ourselves) can define us. Explore further at a meetup by OYS tomorrow (June 6th). Some notes on reading and stories:
  • Long ago, knowledge was passed down verbally: stories, plays
  • When writing was invented, the stories were transferred to text
  • Then came writing, reading, books, libraries and book stores
  • Stories exercise the mind because the reader must manifest a story as virtual reality in the mind
  • Reading is a companion of doing eg Buffet, Musk are avid readers
  • What was your last big read? War and Peace, Harry Potter or FB?
