Modern life moves at mighty speed. Our food is fast, our Internet connections faster. We tweet, we e-mail, we upgrade. We work overtime to stay ahead of the competition. We are on the go. Even when we watch television, we watch CSI and Grey’s Anatomy—shows with people who are quick-witted, fast moving and stressed out.
The rat race has never been so brisk. But we adapt. We multitask, we power nap. We spend quality time with each other, in lieu of quantity. We take in loads of information in stride. We grow accustomed to motion blur.
