"When a carpenter picks up a hammer, the hammer becomes, so fast as hisbrain is concerned, apart of his hand. When a social raises a pair of binoculars to his face, his brain sees through a new set of eyes, adapting instantaneously to a very different fiedl of view (Carr, 208). Nicolas Carr, The Shallows, What the Internet is Doing to Our Minds,).
