Every piece of information in the world has been copied. Backed up. Except the human mind, the last analog device in a digital world.
The press acts like information’s a dirty word. Everyone has access to the information. We just know how to analyze it better.
Getting information is one thing, but how it was created, where and by whom, can often be illuminating.
Your read was good with the information you had. You’re new. You’ll figure it out… or you’ll be gone.[to Ben]
When you read an enormous number of books, you are going to learn a great deal of information that might not be useful for a long time. But then, suddenly, like a strike of lightning or a grand piano falling out of a window, an opportunity arises to use the information gleaned from even the most unlikely piece of reading.
Information is the key. You need to learn your enemy’s strengths and strategies. You need to learn which of your friends are not your friends.
Being informed, knowing facts as they are, not how we wish to perceive them, can tip the balance between life and death.
