A Quote by Jym Allyn on techology, art, and information

Technology is the use of increasingly accurate, self-evident, and reproducible information to replace energy and matter. 

The benefit of technology is NOT what it lets people accomplish, but in how it improves the character of people.

When technology becomes sufficiently obsolete, it becomes an art form.

A Quote by Simeon Hein on communication, information, understanding, and question

The principal boast of electronic communication is speed, and speed doesn't help much in grasping the information - it doesn't matter if you learn about the greenhouse effects this week or next month.  What matters is that when you do hear about it you understand it so deeply and thoroughly that you begin to question the way you live.

A Quote by Arthur Clarke on knowledge, wisdom, foresight, and information

But it is vital to remember that information - in the sense of raw data - is not knowledge; that knowledge is not wisdom; and that wisdom is not foresight. But information is the first essential step to all of these.

A Quote by Kevin Kelly on information, free, technology, and economy

Talk of generosity, of information that wants to be free, and of virtual communities is often dismissed by businesspeople as youthful new age idealism. It may be idealistic but it is also the only sane way to launch a commercial economy in the emerging space.

A Quote by Martha Stewart on information and purpose

Giving information that will help everybody live better. That's a teacher's dream—to accumulate information and disperse it in a form that allows people to choose the way they're going to use it. That's what I think I do best.

A Quote by Martha Stewart on information, ideas, learning, and education

I have a lot of energy. I have a great desire to absorb information. I'm not a sponge exactly, but I find that something I look at -- just walking around Williamsburg, for example -- is a great opportunity for ideas. I've been here before, I've seen things before, but now my eye gets keener and keener. So I can pick up little things: just the pattern of a brick walk, or the way they've attached a light to a house.

A Quote by Elysha on accountability, advaita, adyashanti, apocalypse, authenticity, awakening, awareness, beauty, behaviour, being, bible, biology, bliss, buddha, buddhism, catholic, cessation, changes, christ, christian, clarity, communication, concepts

As you learn to leave alone the activity of unconsciously trying to be the mindbody that you think that you are - the mindbody that this "you" is currently flowing through - and you learn to move as this one that you truly are - this "you" of you; the very heart of existence - steadily, consciously and momentarily, the continuity of the ever deepening of this innermost as it keeps on entering its manifestation, through this mindbody that you find yourself flowing through, allows you to simply bubble in the sheer joy, pleasure, peace, delightfulness and stillness that this "you" of you is.

A Quote by David Forbes on education, information, and competition

The purpose of education is not the accumulation of information in order to compete for success.  Education is the experience of being fully present to oneself and the world; it is transformation toward wholeness.

A Quote by Robert Anson Heinlein on facts, wishful thinking, wishes, revelation, opinion, history, information, and truth

What are the facts? Again and again and again—what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what "the stars foretell," avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable "verdict of history"; what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

Robert Heinlein (1907 - 1988)
