Reinventing the wheel
As progressive humans navigating through the 21st century, we like doing things to the wheel – especially at the start of the year, when people are thinking about resolutions, dreams, and goals for the year ahead. So the wheel is dutifully grabbed between Christmas and February as people start to reinvent it, re-shape it, stack another wheel on the first wheel, erase half of the wheel and re-build it with stronger materials, place a second wheel inside the first, and then a third wheel inside the second, lay the wheel flat (or was it flat already?)… the possibilities are endless, and that’s a good thing! Our world would be a lot less interesting if we just left the wheel alone.
And while manual work that people do is increasingly taken over by digital solutions, it needs to be clear that people are not being replaced – rather, they are being enabled.
