First of all the word anamnesis holds in it something more than just remembering. In its Platonic use it means we are remembering things from tradition or an inferred past. We are not remembering what we have learned already but what went before us.
This is the antithesis of technology because technology in principle is looking forward without looking back. Technology makes history "external to ourselves." Therefore, the highest goal becomes consumerism in a technological society. Education becomes the consumption of information. We become greedy for more, more, more like a fat man at a pie eating contest.
Technology looks forward without looking back "Whereas tradition requires the initiation of persons into a living world that is RECIEVED AS GIFT AND CALLS FOR GRATITUDE."
Enter the Covenant, the Lord's Supper, the community.
Technology is a giant vacuum sucking us away from past, signifying nothing. Tradition is what holds us fast to the things that really matter.
"This is the moment when tradition becomes Covenant. Christian or not, we can see in the scriptural narration of this event a mystery opposed to the technological order, the possibility of overcoming the essence of consumerism through consumption of the Eucharist, the gift of a supreme love that creates and nourishes a new communal identity."I hope you are able to grasp the meaning of all of this because it has everything to do with how we plan our school years and how we look at our children. We are not or should not be consumers of education. We are receivers. That should make a difference when we are looking at those catalogs. It should help us remember that the tools we use are not the things themselves.
"..as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal." II Corinthians 4:18
(And we are still not done with chapter 2. I feel like a Presbyterian pastor preaching through James or Galatians.)
