The value of rereading
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“What is the value of rereading?”
“What do you mean?”
“By Creative Value I mean creating ideas by connecting ideas.
If the created ideas have value, you’re Creating Value.
It’s a matter of timing.
When you read something matters. Depending on your state of mind and what your mind is primed with at the moment of rereading, you’ll make different connections. That’s why it’s important to constantly rediscover ideas.”
“What’s your strategy for rereading?”
“Randomness. It allows you to constantly rediscover past ideas.
That’s why randomness is the central feature of the ComonBook – the digital commonplace book I’m creating with my brother.”
