I'm taking a quick break from researching for my degree project. I've been reading about the Digital Dark Age! I think my project is heading towards some sort of a museum like space...or a building of knowledge which is set in the future that stores archives of data so that it's not lost. I don't know yet. I'm thinking about possible locations for this program. Originally, I was thinking about ancient places like Egypt or Greece, where civilization and knowledge flourished. But now I'm trying to guess what part of the world will be the center of knowledge in the future....a hundred years from now. I think that would be more appropriate. We'll see.
On a random note, my mom has been sorting through our family 'archives'. She found this mold of my hand from twenty years ago that my dad made. I was four years old. My dad always liked to make things like this - I'm happy that he was (and still is) so excited to make things and experiment with me. I get my curiosity and craving for knowledge from him. When I was a child, instead of reading bedtime stories, he would teach me about gravity and space. Now, after dinner, we have long discussions about stuff that we find interesting. I love talking to him because he still surprises me with the amount that he knows (about anything...math, life, chemistry, how to build a patio, whatever) and sometimes I surprise him too.
The four year old Lolo hand sits on my desk and I'll pick it up every now and then. It's an object that connects me to my past. I try to remember myself at that age. Many years have passed and I've grown into a different person but four year old Lolo still remains within me and that makes me happy~
