And what I love in this regard is my old friend Meister Eckhart, 14th-century mystic. German mystic. And one day I read in him and he said, “There is a place in the soul — there is a place in the soul that neither time, nor space, nor no created thing can touch.” And I really thought that was amazing, and if you cash it out, what it means is, that in — that your identity is not equivalent to your biography. And that there is a place in you where you have never been wounded, where there’s still a sureness in you, where there’s a seamlessness in you, and where there is a confidence and tranquility in you. And I think the intention of prayer and spirituality and love is now and again to visit that inner kind of sanctuary.

When someone declares how impartial they are, I am immediately suspicious. It often means they report what I would call the authorised received wisdom. For example, when Tony Blair invaded Iraq, BBC reporters lined up to declare his actions “vindicated”. They called that “impartial”. To point out that Blair was a liar was committed journalism. It’s actually Orwellian, as in “war is peace”.

Of course, there are some first rate journalism colleges - or rather first-rate teachers within the system - but generally academic journalism has achieved obedience to a set of assumptions that young journalists ought to be challenging. Too often the media courses are factories, supplying corporate fodder. Young journalists ought to be taught they are agents of people, not power. Too many graduate believing a cynicism about their readers and viewers ordains them as journalists: the Murdoch view.

The first Transatlantic Telegraph cable, laid across the floor of the Atlantic from Telegraph Field, Foilhommerum Bay, Valentia Island in western Ireland; to Heart’s Content, eastern Newfoundland. The first communications occurred August 16, 1858, reducing the communication time between North America and Europe from ten days – the time it took to deliver a message by ship – to a matter of minutes.
