Predictive text will add a new challenge to the historians of our future. Before, reading through journals, we just muddled our way through the occasional misspelling or illegible word. Now, we need to be ready for strange word transpositions. Words appearing at random. Historians will need to incorporate an understanding of querty, and the possible mis-adjustment contemporary predictive text programs can use for substitutes.

Perhaps not downfall, rather
Rebirth of my hope.

One must clear the mind. Empty the random, blistering fast data stream and its withering pace, grasping calmness, tranquility. This mind-place crucial for grasping truth, the “real”, reclaiming values. Reactive living uproots tranquility and derails the purpose-filled live.
