I absolutely believe that one day very very soon we will be to learn everything with a click of a button and downloading/uploading the data in your brains. But the problem is not only knowing this, but actually being able to connect the dots, there is are tons of infomration out there and can be soaked up but can we effectively connect the data and come to logical conclusions and thus be able to truly learn the new set of skills and implement it ? Yes.

“I know kung fu.” It’s one of the most memorable lines from the 1999 film “The Matrix.” Keanu Reeves‘ character, Neo, utters it after the martial art is “uploaded” to his brain in mere seconds via a futuristic computer jacked into his skull.
