Boy, it didn't take long for this topic to turn into yet another "us versus them" type deal did it? We got the pro-cell phone types going giving the
tired ol' "progress is great, get out of your caves ya old and pretentious fools" garbage, and we got the anti-cell phone types giving the tired ol' "
why back in my day" crap. We even seem to be making rosters of these trivial teams (just look back one page or so). There seems to only be one or two
posters here so far who actually see this for what it is, and that is the destruction of balance in our lives.
Technology is more than just some gizmo that contains precious metals and a circuit board. The wheel is technology, a rake is technology. All
technology is tools at our disposal to be used responsibly and reasonably, but it shouldnt reach the point where we are losing mental capacity for the
sake of novelty, entertainment and far too much ease. Remember that old saying " Use it or lose it". Many are not using their capacities to remember
and figure out, because we've gone far beyond "balance" and rely on things such as cell-phones to perform the duties we used to do mentally, and as a
consequence we are losing it. Why waste time remembering or figuring things out when you can Google it, Wiki it or YouTube it?
There is a level beyond "integrating technology into our lives", and that level is "integrating technology into our bodies", otherwise known as
"transhumanism". This concept is truly scary, and this is a vital part of the endgame the PTB are really pushing us towards. It's a sad and sorry
predicament when people start to believe that the human body, inside and out, is a clumsy and inefficient thing that can be improved by integrating
it, or flat-out replacing it, with "superior" technology. An increasingly brain-dead and spiritually-dead populace will start to see this more and
more as a good idea and will accept mutilating their bodies for this "upgrade". You can see things such as Google Glass as a significant step towards
this acceptance. Sure, its basically just glasses with a computer, but these kinds of things always start out innocently enough. "Novelty and
Oh, and for the record, I see cell phones and many other mobile devices as largely unnecessary , in terms of functionality and expense, and therefore
do not, and will not, own one.
