extent. "In large states public education will always be mediocre, for the same reason thatin large kitchens the cooking is usually bad" said Friedrich Nietzsche, German-Swissphilosopher and writer, one of the most influential of modern thinkers. His analyses of the root motives and values that underlie traditional Western religion, morality, andphilosophy affected generations of theologians, philosophers, psychologists, poets,novelists, and playwrights. Well, he certainly had a way of banging a nail on its head, Imust say.Till now, a basic knowledge of the working of computers was good enough tosurvive and maybe go a few places up in the ladder of life. However, it is foreseen thatthings will change drastically in a few decades or a few years time. The steepadvancements in science and technology undertaken by grave scientists are steep indeed,but may be seen in hindsight as gentle slopes compared to what may happen in thecoming years. For there looks to be no end to the advancements that can be made.However deep scientists and engineers go, there always seem to be deeper layers; layerswithin layers and subtle changes, which however mean a great deal of technologicaladvancement. In the same way that scientists first postulated that the atom was indivisibleand now think that it is divisible, they are postulating now that there are ways to digdeeper and deeper and come up with newer, better solutions to their problems; problemshowever that are never-ending. However the watchwords here seem to be cost andavailability. Around a hundred and thirty years back, there was no such thing aselectricity. I must be a little more specific, I think. I meant there was no such thing ascommercial electricity. Well now, things are a bit different right? The oldest man whoever lived, if I remember correctly, lived for around the same amount of time as it took for electricity to become so common i.e. one hundred and thirty years. I often wonder how different the world will be in around the same amount of time in the future."The authority of those who teach is often an obstacle to those who want to learn"said Marcus Tullius Cicero, Roman statesman, lawyer, scholar, and writer who isremembered as the greatest Roman orator and the innovator of what became known asCiceronian rhetoric, which remained the foremost rhetorical model for many centuries.
