An interesting idea arose into my thoughts this morning as I drove to church. I was thinking about ancient times, and how many valued artifacts and histories were lost and/or obfuscated due to wars. Often, it seems that raids of war always somehow pronounced fire on a sanctuary containing important artifacts of the time. My thoughts then transferred to the modern era, and I began wondering if the same thing were possible due to the global scale of the internet. As I thought on this matter I realized that, indeed, the same prospect still stands, as it appears that weapons technology (the means of destroying information) and the means of propagating information grow at nearly the same scale. If information is local, then the ability to destroy it is also local. For example, in ancient times, information was traditionally local (there was often not many quantities of information because of the time it took to produce (copying a book by hand for instance)). Thus this valued information could be erased by the technology available at the time (siege or fire.) If the information is global, then the means of destroying it is also global. In the modern-day, information is easy to produce and share across the globe with the aid of computers, but there exists powerful nuclear weapons that could still disrupt large quantities of it. A global nuclear war would likely destroy the information globally, and force us back into a more localized scope of life. I suppose the theorem could be extrapolated to say that if information is universal, then the means of destroying it is also universal, but that thought is too troubling to think upon for very long.
