Just in case you are one of those lonely people with 500 friends on Facebook, (most of them you never hear of but promoted by a faceless Facebook prompt) tweets all day long, can’t go anywhere without you smart phone, spend most of your time looking down into LCD screens, Googling , Flip Boarding, never experiencing real cooking, real friendship, real conversation with body language, doesn’t know what true or false, you are on a complex collision with what life is really like.
Now don’t get me wrong I am not against Technological advances but I am somewhat fearful that we are not seeing as yet a genuine revolution of Technology. We are creating a world which is not connected but becoming more and more disconnected. A world of vast inequalities.
What we can do in the world depends on what we can make.
Take for instance the Internet. Prosperity= Internet. Poverty=no Internet.
There is no doubt that the world as we ( the older generation) have known it is coming to an end.
The microchip is everywhere and no where.
We are only on the threshold of Technology. It won’t be long before the whole lot will be on your wrist, or in your contact lenses.
With you very own genome map on a DNA chip that will be down loaded to grow replacement new body parts, and analyze your health while sitting on the toilet. Cant wait! for the Robots with AI.
Before you all get carried away here is a dose of Present Day conflict worldwide.
Realities that are turned into entertainment by the Mass media, before the weather forecast. Why are there so many.? Because we are disconnected to the reasons. The present day War in Syria started with a Drought.
