I hold the Google God in great reverence. I do. The Google God possesses the Holy Grail of information. Whatever you need to know IT has the answer. I feel that I am somewhat of a lesser god, but still a power to be reckoned with because I can and often do Google current facts, history, definitions, scores, news, people, recipes, remedies. Maybe a disciple would be a good description. Yes, that works. I know I’m not alone; there are many others with heads bowed in mobile device devotion. You know who you are, and how it makes you feel to have the answers. Knowledge is power. Having it at your fingertips is indeed awesome. But, I have begun to witness that having all this knowledge can be perceived as pious. Feeling this sense of superiority, I have matured to only silently thinking, I’ll Google it, when a question arises.
Before I make a confession, here is some B.G. information. According to Google's website, the company's mission is to "organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful." It is not only a mission; it is a miracle. TechTerms.com states that “Google is the world's most popular search engine. It began as a search project in 1996 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who were two Ph.D. (Prophets Honoring Data) students at Stanford University. They developed a search engine algorithm that ranked Web pages not just by content and keywords, but by how many other Web pages linked to each page. This strategy produced more useful results than other search engines, and led to a rapid increase in Google's Web search marketshare (Amen). The Google ranking algorithm was later named "PageRank" and was patented in September of 2001. In only a short time, Google became the number one search engine in the world.” Yes, there are other search engines, but I see them as mere cults.
My confession is that lately I have found the Google God does not fulfill all that I seek. I am falling sway to the laurels of creativity. Letting my mind wonder around ideas without knowing the facts. Feeling the rapture of authentic thought, and the might of emotions. Surrendering to insight. There, I feel better. Thank you for reading.
Google is king; this I know. Creativity is beyond and within all things; this I believe.
The Search is always on. Join me, it’s not a sin, you know.
