Is the internet adverse to intimacy?
An interesting comment I read about this "quick world" being to blame for a decline in intimacy, got me thinking...Are the internet and other advances in modern technology to blame for a decline in personal intimacy and romance?
Was the world really more intimate before the world-wide-web? If so, why has this technology, which was meant to bring us together, driven us further apart?
Is the technology dehumanizing or does it simply provide an outlet for a fear of intimacy that is already within us. http://www.psychalive.org/2011/11/fear-of-intimacy/ In a world, where people sit around a table typing on their iPhones instead of having meaningful conversation, it seems a revival of intimacy and attunement is more important than ever.
