Self-ish Resonance

This morning I read an interesting online aphorism from a wise school that suggested that most of what makes a book ‘good’ is that we are reading it at the right moment.

Much the same might be said, in functional microcosm, of the perceived value of a social media post or comment.

We could ask how the “right moment”, as functional microcosm of a resonant Zeitgeist also cultivates each of us like little bells struck by artefacts of communication in ways that then amplify as self-propagating signals and frequencies of which we remain quite blissfully unaware.

Such moments of cathartic insight are the inflection points at which we might realise that it is our own transient selves that are the primary transmission medium in all this babbling human noise and endless technological effervescence.
