Our mind managed to find the way to express ourselves. However, reality is slow comparing to our mind. Our thoughts are fast and sometimes faster than light. Human kind wasn’t satisfied with speech and it has been trying for centuries to speed up its communication. With speech we could only communicate with our neighbor. Human kind wanted to evolve this and to communicate with people from distant places, it started to use mails, and newspaper in order to keep people informed. Nowadays, we have Internet and social media that are faster than news and probably more accurate. We finally created something that is function in the exact same way as our mind. Our mind is based on related thoughts and associations. One thought will lead us to another similar one, just like link can pull you in completely different direction that it was at first place.
