Wouldn't it be a great idea if your phone holder keeps you calm while catching up on your online social activities?
Today, on a typical desk, you can probably find some sort of a computer like a laptop, a tablet, and a monitor, some books, a mobile phone on a phone holder. In ancient times, Chinese people always have a few everyday things on the desk. You might find a candle, calligraphy brushes, inkstone, and books; the most noticeable item is the brush holder, which is used to hang different sizes of brushes. After each use, people like to clean the brush with water and hang up on the brush holder and let it air dry it for the next use.
In the past, items like a calligraphy brush, ink, paper, and inkstone were collectively called the Four Treasures (文房四寶). If you think about it, comparing the time before and after these things gotten invented, these four items did change the world. Events could be recorded, and knowledge became transferable. New information could be exchanged among different places and pass down to generations. These four items gave rise to the possibility of first information booming as we have known it. Similarly, powerful computers and the Internet give us the opportunity of digital transformation that we all are experiencing in these years. The intensive information exchange with the super processing power generated from the microchip and artificial intelligence makes everything fast and closely intertwined.
While things are going extremely fast these days, we may become lost in the digital maze as a side effect spending too much time online. Keeping us healthy about Internet use, we need to remember who we represent, and firmly hold on the values we cherish. Sometimes, perseverance is difficult in the journey of life, but it is a virtue that your heritage is backed by, and you are not alone. No matter where you are from, you are a unique soul who represents an entire heritage before you.
I want to make such a thing on the desk that serves as a reminder of gazing in the past and bringing back the ancient wisdom, and while it serves as a great companion for my mobile devices. It would be a great idea to have a phone holder that resembles the ancient calligraphy brush holder. On a typical busy day, our phone holder could soothe your mood and help calm your mind when you try to catch up on your online social activities.
