You only have to log in and there you go: information is here in a “click”. We consume it, produce it, fake it – voluntarily or not – and exponentially feed its volume online. The web seemed to be thin and fluid when it was invented. With time, we slowly loose the grasp on its limits, its thickness and its real consistency. Artificial intelligence has supposedly entered a golden age and is now supposed to make our lives easy. Where are we really at right now? Are we adapted to this frenzy, to this quest of absolute reactivity, to this immediacy of exchanges? Is our thirst for knowledge, for progress, for success fulfilled or overloaded? Are we reduced to numeric signatures, available data combinations? Do we need a numeric manager to rule our everyday lives, to handle our planet’s resources? What about other celestial bodies?
