Yes, I suppose it does make sense...

Yes, I suppose it really does make sense... 

If the way we primarily experience the world, and acquire our knowledge, (think TV, think computers) is primarily episodic, fragmentary, and non-linear; where past, present and future are all mixed up, and available to us at all times, anytime, then we may rightly come to believe that, that is the actual nature of our world.

And the old way of thinking of the world... as a coherent narrative, with a distinct past, present and future, comes to seem so quaint, boring and untrue, or non-representative of what we are experiencing when we experience it, and that it comes to seem false to our experience; we no longer process or think about the world in such a cut and dried, linear way...  and even reading novels that use that template seem so old world and uninteresting...

Yes, I suppose it really does make sense...
