What does it mean to be human in a technological age?
After I read the article by BILL MCKIBBEN, "THE POSIHUMAN CONDITION", I have a deep thoughts and feelings about our technological. Over time, human technology in the rapid development of this, just as the author mentioned stable " Most of this work leads in exciting directions-toward new and better cancer drugs, a vaccine for AIDS - but such research may also lead to something much darker: to attempts at genetic engineering human beings in the womb, designing our children to make them smarter, prettier, better." No doubt, technology has brought to our human life was very much affected. Whether it is life, thought, or the environment. In this technology era of the people are happy, but it is also sad. In this society, everything has two sides. There is also wrong for. Technology brings us not only have advantages as well disadvantages. This is human nature disappeared.
Heard a recording "Voice box and flute" from Sarah Greens's CBC audio documentary, that the mechanization of people does not feel any emotional response, as if no life. This is the technology easy with about the same time to give us our sorrow.
Being Digital - how tempting this word, to make people's lives today can achieve unprecedented precision, because the whole universe of space can be seen as a virtual network, a small planet is just one node, from 0 to 1 well into the digital portfolio of your ideas, your life, all around you people and events that have occurred or not occurred in the presence of do we really have to change from it?
Humans from birth to now the most solemn theme is the survival and development, from nomadic to farming, from hand to machine large-scale production workshops.human life has never been industrialization Name comfortable, but a new round of survival but also before the people front: contributed to the excessive commercialization of people's hearts and shameless greed, the most simple twist of the human ethics and values; day dealing with your machine.human suffering will be in front of the machine's destruction, advanced technology and social division of labor so that everyone can exist independently, the role of social groups are increasingly dependent on desalination; Despite the daily live in the crowd, but do not feel lonely and cold all the time.although the distance between people is no longer distant, but every time familiar faces could not be more familiar with the time, is not it strange happens to the soul could not be more strange is the time, so from the heart issue "PC TO PC, FACE TO FACE" cry.
This is the industrialization of human alienation, human transformation and the use of machines to conquer nature, but the people's true colors more and more lost, reduced to slaves of the machine. As early as in the industrial revolution, the British had destroyed the machine broke, "Lourdes movement", not people devoid of emotions no longer exist.
