Our Brains Technological Withdrawl ?

Apocalipsis's picture

According to Clark, humans are natural born cyborgs, ready to embrace technology. While in class on Thursday, I found our discussion of human extended cognition, the role of agency on technology, the natural desire for humans to seek technological advances, our prejudice against technology, and our nature/ nurture debate of our use/ relations with technology to be rather interesting. However, I am concerned with human growing relations to technology. In primitive times, we did not have as much electronically powered resources, but I wonder if our obsession/ dependence on it is changing the way our brains are structured. I am concerned that technology is leading out world into one of solitary confinement when we were breed to be social beings.
