Diamond Age 2

This book is made for decades to come, futuristic generations, and a technological revolution era. This book so far has given us examples of society today, such as the type oc car you drive, where you live, what you wear, and who your friends are. For me this quote put my thoughts into a sentence.

"Because I dont want to live that way...to us, the things that the Atlantans do---- dressing up in these kinds of clothes, spending years and years in school----are irrelevant. Those pursuits wouldnt help us make beautiful things, you see."

"In your Primer you have a resource that will make you highly educated, but it will never make you intelligent. That comes from life. Your life up to this point has given you all of the experience you need to be intelligent, but you have to think about those experiences. If you dont think about them, you will be psychologically unwell..."

This part of the book really shows how the "Constable" is trying to play an important role in life and with that it shows Nell that he truly cares about her, and only wants the best for her. I think that the Constable is really trying to tell Nell to go with her gut instincts and what she feels is right;opposed to always listening to Primer. If Nell were to gather the pieces of information about true life, she would realize that there are alot of different perspectives on the world and how to live life.
