OBSERVATION: In order to function as a thinking and productive human being it is necessary to grasp and understand information. Without access to data, we are left in the blind. Without the ability to imagine, interact, and communicate we are also left blind. It is only by actively participating in the life of ideas where we contact, process, and interpret information that we have any opportunity to exist beyond the mundane.
