The privileging of the kind of intelligence identified as " left-brain" in our schooling and civilization had to do, as we have seen, with the affinity of alphabetic literacy with critical thinking. Alphabetic technology allowed ordinary people, by means of schooling, to acquire and practice analytic reasoning "artificially," in the mode of remembrance and routinization... Video permits the institutional dissemination of inventive thinking -- its artifical simulation as a routine conducted by ordinary students. Until now we could not institutionalize invention in the way that we have institutionalized analysis, because we simply lacked the prosthesis needed to democratize it. --TELETHEORY, 71.
