    We are slowly turning into a machine inside our head we are losing the purity and beauty that our great ancestors had. How long we live like this like a prisoner trapped in a mechanical world. What the future generation from now onwards live like. Are we forgetting love, compassion, and humanity? The simple joys that fascinated our ancestors and captivated their imagination. Are we getting replaced for a machine? How long we have to live like this?

      Perhaps a healthier question is, what are you going to do to change this?  Shine your light smile

      I personally think that the human being, surrounded by so many technology is losing something of humanity, and perhaps of goals and dreams. I'm not saying that technology is bad, on the contrary, it has helped us a lot, but it has also made us rely on it. Our interaction with the world around us, the people we love or even our pets, is affected by spending hours in front of a phone or laptop. We don't dream and have goals bacause we don't give us the time to create them. I think we need wake up

        We need to wake back up. smile The question is why have we fallen asleep?
        The answer is too little liberty ... which is strange to say in a "free" country!

    Yes. My mind is crystal clear. I see the world the way God created it. Borrowing simplicity from our ancestors and understanding the way they lived. Listening to classic music can take you back in time. During olden days musicians composed music for nature. That's why we feel bright and pure when experiencing music from another century. I read a lot about history and imagine in my mind how people lived during their time. We can see such innocence only in a child eyes who yet to know the reality of today's world. Our mind is composed of different emotions in the modern world our emotions becomes ripe and we experience stress. Just go to a garden filled with trees you will experience total tranquility then you feel the presence of God.

    No! We are the same! Why do you think you are turning into a machine? I am not. We are both using a computer to communicate our feelings. Why is that different from using parchment and a quill pen? Those were once technological advances too!

    When I think of future generation I believe they will lead a life very different from us

    I'm sure the people before us felt the same way. Funny thing about humans is that we always think the times before us were better and future generations are worse.

    We are much more dependent on inventions designed to make our lives easier. We are becoming mentally and physically indolent. Laziness is probably the biggest challenge we have to face. Can we face it?

    For instance, we need to consciously limit the amount of time children spend on computer screens,  but public schools expect kindergartners to spend a certain amount of time on computers. Elementary school kids are doing their homework on computers.  They are also playing games and becoming addicted to screen activities. Will they learn to amuse themselves, find and follow their own interests, develop their imaginations and the ability to interact face to face with each other in the real/natural world?

    Kids do not need to learn anything via computers until they have mastered the concrete skills of reading, writing (by hand) and arithmetic. Probably around fourteen.

    Who will listen and heed this advice?
    No one. sad
