shift the paradigm

What's that mean?

It means unevolving things die quickly. It means letting go of your private collections, your hordes of information that you whore for cash, and accept that in the vast virtualization of books, in the digitization of words, comes infinite multiplicity, and your precious museums will become nothing more than first editions, sought after by a subtle few.

Instead realize the direction the future pulls us as humans, not in one of financial prosperity but one of understanding your place within it all; your obligations to the species, not yourself. You greedy bastards, look at yourselves and untie the knots that bind you!
