Surrounded by technology in the Stone Age batcave…

I have been having a bunch of fun exploring the ideas of this Lego caveman batman.  I have been trying to match it to scenery that may have been visible in a time that lacks the bells and whistles of our day.  The Lego Batman Movie seems to be full of the latest and greatest tech because that’s what a single billionaire with a self absorption complex would likely do, right?

The ages of history, from Stone Age, to Iron Age, to Industrial Age, to the Information Age, are all defined by their technology.  Our age of information seems to flood the world with so much information that It’s also like sticking your head out the window while traveling at freeway speeds and trying to breath… I’m not sure how dogs can do that.

So much information and knowledge surrounds us but where is the wisdom?  My scoutmaster and friend when I was younger always said he had a lot of wisdom, heavy on the dom.  I’ve been thinking about that recently – and it’s true.  So many folks know so much, but what do you do with that information?  

What is wisdom?  

Wisdom is defined as having the experience, knowledge, and good judgement to act with the knowledge obtained.  So I think we are drinking up so many facts and tidbits of knowledge but maybe we are not getting the entire gulp.  We aren’t getting the experience.

It’s kind of like the image above.  Caveman batman is surrounded by the technology of his times, but what does it do for him?  How does he progress with that knowledge.  It gives him shelter and he can make weapons and tools of stone, but then what?  We are surrounded everywhere, and bombarded with information – but what can we do with this?  Where do we go from here?  How do we use the knowledge we obtain to our advantage?
