This quote has significant implications within the context of our mischevious little analogy. If we are to believe Ecclesiastes, and grant that the analogy is justified, we must also accept that the author does not exist. It simply represents a social construct designed to facilitate interaction with information, until such time as homo sapiens matures sufficiently enough to appreciate the text for what it is, without feeling the need to associate it with a particular author. This calls for a paradigm shift in information technology, switching from a categorical to an associative mode of thinking.
