"Social media does not give us enough time to really, dissolve things into our being. For instance, music today has become this sort of commodity that is something that is supposed to be on in the background while you're working. And you have your playlist on a streaming service, where you can't even find whatever you listened to a month ago. It's constantly a new thing. When I grew up, you bought an album, you got home, and you listened to it. And you tried to be in there and live in those songs and in that music. And that process takes time.
It's the same thing with everything that has to do with our corporeal knowledge, our physical knowledge of things, and our physical understanding or intuitive understanding of things. That is a process that takes time, and it gets interrupted by the constant flow of information. Our media input is like 90% of what we read on a screen. It probably doesn't have to be like that, but that's what it has become.”
