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 28 2013: A. Why would one assume that technology is not natural in and of itself? At what point did it separate? If a smartphone or supermarkets are not natural, what about a blow gun? Before blow guns......flint knives.......are they natural? A monkey using a stick to find food......natural?

    If you go even deeper. Is technology in itself, not just a manifestation of our own nature? More interesting therefore maybe;

    How should we grow within technology and what will nature continue to become?
