At a time when we are most connected, we could not be further apart. The most basic needs that make us human are inadvertently denied. In a world where billions of bits a second are being transferred across the planet, none compares to the bits perceived by a human touch. Promises of a better tomorrow, have left us yearning for the unlived past. Once flooded mail rooms have been replaced with flooding emails.
Typewriters with computers. Technology designed to make our lives easier has never been realized why it is there in first place. Entire generations of users unaware of its purpose. What was once hailed as the answer of tomorrow is now the curse of today. Albert Einstein once said “I fear the day technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.”
Has that day come? Will we know to get back in touch with our human nature or will we simply perish in a sea of artificially lit screens, yearning for the next “LIKE”, wishing and hoping that the next one will get us the recognition we seek?
