In with the New…

“Because the brand new is unthinkable, we fight over the old”
This quotation is a poignant reminder of the inherent resistance to change that exists
within human nature. When faced with something unfamiliar or unknown, it is natural to cling to what we already know and understand, even if it may not be the best or most efficient option. This is especially true when it comes to technology and innovation, as the unknown can be intimidating and overwhelming.
This concept is particularly relevant when it comes to cryptocurrency. As a relatively new and rapidly evolving technology, cryptocurrency has faced a lot of resistance and skepticism from those who are unwilling to embrace the unknown. Many people are hesitant to invest in or use cryptocurrency because they do not fully understand it or because they are afraid of the potential risks. As a result, there is often a lot of fighting and debate over the old ways of doing things, even if cryptocurrency offers a more secure, efficient, and decentralized alternative.
Ultimately, the quote highlights the importance of embracing change and being open to new ideas, even if they may seem unfamiliar or risky at first. In the case of cryptocurrency, this means educating ourselves about the technology and its potential benefits, and being willing to take a chance on something that has the potential to revolutionize the way we transact and exchange value. By doing so, we can embrace the brand new and move beyond the old ways of doing things, paving the way for a brighter and more innovative future.
Case in point, this article was brought to you by ChatGPT…first generation too! For those of you who don’t know what that is (come out from under the rock) its Lt. Commander Data asking the Enterprise computer how many angels can dance on the head of a pin” and Majel Barret tells him in an omnipresent voice. Only you have to type instead of talk and read instead of Majel Barret. I won’t elaborate on the technology itself…there’s plenty of that on the Net.
My point is, when we watch such things as “science fiction” we think its cool and how cool (or uncool) the future will be and we as an audience see all this as mankind’s destiny. But when these “ideas” actually become reality, there’s “panic in the streets” and overwhelming delight at the very same time. If you thought 2022 was something…you ain’t seen nothing yet!
