Ong is explaing that reading and writing aren't natural human thoughts. :"LITERACisY im perious. It tends to arrogate to itself supreme power
by taking itself as normative for human expression and thought." he is saying literacy isn't something you're born with.

Here Ong is comparing writing to technology. "Plato's Socrates urges, writing destroys memory. Those
who use writing will become forgetful, relying on an external source
for what they lack in internal resources. Writing weakens the mind." The comparison is made that writng weakens the mind like computers or calculators do.
