The more accelerated our life becomes…

The text below is from The Novel of the Future by Anaïs Nin.

The more accelerated our life becomes, the more we have to learn to select only the essential, to create our own repose and meditation islands within an uncluttered mental space.

I did not come across the text by reading Nin’s text. I found it in Warren Ellis’s Orbital Operations email newsletter.

Ellis comments, and I agree, that even though Nin wrote these words in 1968, they seem to fit the present circumstances of quotidian life in the here and now.

This ties to what I posted here regarding how information density affects how we experience time.
