ON METAPHYSICS: UNDERSTANDING OUR PRESENT AND FUTURE REALITY BY STUDYING THE IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY ON THE HUMAN MIND
Our purpose in this world is, and has always been, to participate in the dynamic nature of the Universe. We have decided a long time ago that living here is good for us and with that decision we have been condemned to a state of responsibility. We understood this state imposed on us, and we have accepted it for centuries.
Until now, when the rise of technology is deceiving us into thinking that we can escape responsibility, by using machines in our escape.
It is a false and dangerous illusion, and we must not fail to preserve our precious self. We should use technology to guard the self yet it seems to me that we are doing quite the opposite.
I shall explain my views and demonstrate my claims within the limits of my knowledge.
First, let us examine what can be understood by thought consensus.
In our world, which is the world we choose for ourselves (since we are free to go anywhere else if we want to), a phenomenon with disastrous consequences can be observed. I shall call this common manifestation thought consensus.
We cannot hope for a better world until we drastically re-frame our minds. I believe it is of the utmost interest of populations to participate in a collective initiative against negative perceptions of thought.
Only when we realise how crucial it is to ignore these perceptions, only then we can continue our discussion.
I shall now explain what I mean by ‘better world’, ‘re-framing our minds’, and ‘negative perceptions of thought’.
I accept the irony of this indubitable paradox: we have solid premises which are leading us to believe the fact that technology is beneficial, and yet the effect it has on the self is unavoidably a negative one. And I have no doubt when I say that negative perceptions of thought have been multiplied and are continuing to be multiplied as we become more aware of our dependency on machines.
And yet, we fail to see the evidence of this.
