Is there such a thing as TOO MUCH technology?

We are currently used to working with technology almost as much as we work with our hands but will it ever reach a point where it will become too much? where we will not be required to do anything other than think?

    Oct 9 2011: It seems to me that there needs to be a balance between technology and humanity. When I say humanity I mean passion, soul, beauty, kindness, generosity of spirit, music, love, art - all the higher forms of what makes humankind great. I admit to being a lover of Star Trek, and I prefer an idealistic view of the future. So, to answer your question, as long as the balance is there; there will never be "Too much" technology.
