Today, January 1, begins a new year. But what is really new today? The naming of this day as beginning the new year is just an arbitrary designation. Nothing much is really new today. It is just another Sunday. It is just another holiday in the Western world.
But what does it mean that something is really new? What does it mean that we call something as “never seen or experienced before.” Inventions are “new:” radios, airplanes, computers, fitbits were once new—never experienced before. But now they are no longer new—they are just “improved.”
