  • Learning at an earlier age

    Futurist Buckminster Fuller in his 1982 book Critical Path is said to have written that if all the knowledge that mankind had accumulated and transmitted by the year One A.D. were equal to one unit of information, it took about 1500 years or until the sixteenth century for that amount of knowledge to double.

    The next doubling took only 250 years, until about 1750, and by 1900, knowledge had multiplied by 8 units. Today, futurists like Fuller estimate the doubling speed is now between one and two years.
