Does Technology destroy our relationship with Nature?

I am an environmental Literature student, and I am interested in people's responses about the constitution of Nature, Technology, and the relationship that is apparently slowly being degraded with Nature.

All responses are welcome.

    May 4 2013: Hey Nathan, that is a nice thought.. to learn about nature and technology relationship. Technology has created a divide amongst categories. Our ancestors had a wholistic view to every action and they were considerate about the impact. Today, technology has divided that wholistic approach, if you are studying Environment, you are taught in a manner that it is only you who knows the nature or our environment the most. But this is not the fact.

    Technology has taken us away from nature. Now you learn nature through technology. If we can learn technology from nature thats the purest and fundamental thing that can happen to our relationship.
