There was a time when only a few set of elites had giants at their disposal. These giants enabled these elite to sit on their shoulders and what happened was magical. These elite had the power to see farther.
Such power was the clarity of insight that the words of Isaac Newton still rings in our brains.
“If I have seen further, it is standing on the shoulder’s of giants”.
As time went on, more people began to stay on top the shoulder of their giants but some people were not satisfied with standing on Giants; they wanted more; they wanted to be able to control these giants and move freely but it wasn’t easy. So they looked for something that could give them more flexibility and they found it.
Now they were now standing on the Shoulders of The Internet, They had the flexibility they wanted and they could see better than they did with giants. It did not take long for everyone to join this era.
