From the Titanic to the Internet: A spiritual journey

On April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic sailed into history—and legend. For many, the sinking stands as a warning against arrogance and pride. It is also an affirmation of courage expressed by many who went down with the ship, spending their last hours or minutes helping others to escape or to feel comforted. 

Though she was birthed in the technology of the times, technology wasn’t the Titanic’s flaw. In Titanic: The Death and Life of a Legend, Michael Davie writes: “The basic flaw of the Titanic was not technical. Her fate is better explained by the theories of [American journalist and historian] Henry Adams . . . . [who] saw the modern world being propelled at an ever-increasing speed by the new energies released through scientific discovery . . .” (p. 22). 

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
