In the future will new symbols have to be invented to accommodate new
ideas? for instance, genetics will say that certain perceptions are
impossible to some and other sense perceptions re probable for others.
E.G. Animals have extra senses, so do we need to invent an extra
symbol to explain processing in reasoning that we can't accurately
understand ourselves very well yet?
Now education is almost accessible worldwide, and text has become the
most often used form for communication in any 1st world country, has
text changed the way we speak or see our world, our value systems and
the way we relate physically with body language perhaps, and how we
convey information by speech and tone for instance?
Dictionaries of words are being updated all the time, while older
words of once frequent usage become less popular, making space for the
new sounds or ways of commonly understood interpretation or
representation. It is already well known that publishing, design and
DTP has altered aesthetic values, extraordinarily, since internet.
Many people who never called themselves artsy are discovering that
they have fabulous, creative and innovative skills, and others (myself
included) have less skill than ambition or cause to create. lol.
How will text or emoticons or symbols change the way we feel, create
literature or communicate in our future to be?
