Description
Information
The "user illusion" of this groundbreaking book's title comes from the language of computer design and refers to the simplistic mental image most of us have of our PCs. Our consciousness, says Norretranders, is our user illusion of ourselves. The conscious part of us receives much less information than the unconscious part. We should trust our hunches and pursue our intuitions because they are closer to reality. The User Illusion makes the case that humans are designed for a much richer existence than processing a dribble of data from a computer screen. The fact that there is far too little information in the so-called Information Age may be responsible for the malaise of modern society, that nagging feeling that there must be more to life. There is - but we have to get outside and live life with all our senses to experience it more fully. Drawing on wildly disparate areas of scientific research, Tor Norretranders has made a compelling case for putting consciousness in perspective and embracing all that the world has to offer.
