Description/Abstract

From the origin of human language 100,000 years ago until the invention of writing 5000 years ago the oral tradition had been the principal creator, conserver and communicator of human knowledge. Our brains are biologically adapted to the tempo of oral interaction in real time. Lapidary writing lost all of that, but soon skywriting will again catch up with the speed of thought.
