HOW IS TECHNOLOGY CHANGING THE WAY WE THINK?

How much are we relying on technology?
Are we underestimating the value and the capacities of our own brain?
Or is technology an extension of our own intelligence?
Are we solving problems or creating greater ones?


These are questions that arise from the daily observations of our habits driven by new technology. I wonder if it really is as good as it seems.

    Technology is good thing that could extend our understanding of nature and help our vision realize. But that's it.

    It might bring us crisis of underestimating the value of human life and seem to solve every problem we are facing now. But technology alone is not enough. To deal with these problems, we really need something more like liberal arts: humanities, ethics, morals, and so on.

    I want to say it again "Technology alone is not enough"
