It is fairly clear what will be lost in the transition from Gutenbergian to electromagnetic culture, namely, everything we treasure  in the Western legacy. On the other hand, we do not see what we  have to gain. If we could do that, we would already have reached  the first step toward the new way of thinking. But by trying to immerse   ourselves in nominalistic thought, say, in the life and poetry  of Francis of Assisi, we can get a sense of the future. Sola fide?
