No kidding on this one, Aphorism. I was just thinking that exact same thing this morning. It could also be dangerous if someone uses the internet for a while and loses real connections in real life, even worse if a society does it. Although one benefit of a society doing it is that the society can work together to get out of it -
What's worse is this seems to be occurring at a much younger age when learning is most susceptible. Kids intently staring and interacting with screens, rather than with the living and the environment. I think we're on the cusp of valuing screen life more than natural life. I can see this becoming an issue further down the road.
