I don't know if there is actually a rise in this sense of "connection" telepathically... I felt I experienced something like that, happening about
fifteen years ago, and seemingly increasing. I seem to be "tuned in" to the collective consciousness.
I have no belief on if that is true, in my case or in others- only a description of my experience, that seems to correlate to real life events
(sensing things that are going to happen, being extremely empathic concerning others, etc.)
I have a hypothesis to offer-
It is not a case of the current technology "causing" a change in humanity,
but rather, technology always "mirroring" or reflecting, the current evolution of humanity.
I mean, humans
create technology, and almost everything we are able to dream up is limited to our current understanding and view of ourselves.
I considered the technological revolutions in human history and they seem to sort of coincide with our growth in self awareness. We seem to
"materialize" what we have found out about ourselves into objects.
As psychology emerged as a science, then became more mainstream, we became more aware of our internal workings of mind... and we also started creating
computers. Sort of like trying to create minds outside of our own.
The study and awareness of the subconscious part of our minds grew, and we started to see- we are deeply embedded and part of our environment and
collective, despite ourselves. Our conscious mind isn't totally in control, there are is all kinds of interactions going on beneath it's radar and
impacting decision making and action. Influences from our society, our conditioned values and attitudes, in short, we are not blank slates who write
our own story upon our life. We are imprinted and part of something much larger.
So... is it a surprise then, that our created "mind objects" also have a deep web... the ability to contact almost anyone around the globe in an
instant, networking across time and space, and even being spied on?
To try to sum up this idea- we might just be in the next stage of our evolution, and that is simply being acted out, or manifested in the technology
we create. Not the other way around.
