It really surprised me seeing others’ thought processes about technology. Some I found coincided with my own beliefs, and others led me to rethink those beliefs. Two in particular stick out in my mind, one that looks at a psychological view of how technology affects us. This one, I feel, is most similar to my own feelings, stating that it ultimately results in us being stressed out, etc. All technology has done to us as humans is overload us with information. The other however, had a completely opposing statement. It suggested that without technology, we would never have been able to evolve as much as we have thus so far as a species. I guess this is something I have never considered. Obviously, a world without so much technology would be very different, but do we really owe our growth both as individuals and as a whole species to it’s existence?
Really something to think about.
