Seeing is forgetting the name of what you see

History is nothing else than a mixture of inventing something and "disinventing" it after a while.

First they invented icons to express words and thoughts, then they invented letters to express sounds and disinvented the "iconographic writings".

After a while somebody invented Art to express thoughts and sentiments through images.
Now they talk of sounds as "pictures that talk".

Antonio Meucci invented the telephone and now we disinvent it and create VoIP where video and sounds converge on the same line.
Communication is not only sound...

Every expression carries with it the spirit by which it has been created...and the boring side by which it will be destroyed.
