I have been thinking about the uses of technology lately. Actually, I have been thinking about the effects of the uses of technology, and my considered conclusion is that it alienates humanity from life.
And I don't equate technology with simple tools. Tools are good; even crows use them.
Consider a simple drive in your car. What do you hear, feel, see? Virtually nothing. In your mind, walk the same route and imagine the difference in your experience. What did getting there faster accomplish other than getting there faster? How rich was your experience on the walk?
More on this later.
