    Do You Feel Like The "One Out" here?

    This amazing little video reflects how I felt often. In fact, at this very moment in time I could take a pic of scenes just like the above. The video was based on Einstein's prediction that technology would give rise to a generation of idiots. This seems like a huge contradiction in terms and paradoxical. How can technology dumb people down? The answer can be more simply explained if you use some examples: We all know that in everyday life, you can make a choice either to use the lift or walk up the stairs. Most of us will understand that waking the steps is harder than taking a lift but both options will have the same outcome -= you will reach the top floor regardless. There is a catch, though. Each time we take the lift, catch the bus or drive a car, we work "less" physically. So, we become less physically fit. This is mainly why people have gotten fatter and less healthy than, say, in the 1960s. Now, if we compare this simple reality with the brain, really it is the same thing. Every time you use technology to make things easier, the less you depend upon your own brain to solve problems. Whereas in the past (1960s) computers were thought of as calculators and a means to process calculations, we ended up with social media instead. This latter basically "emphasises" socialising from the uploaded pics on Facebook to the games and social exchanges that dominate people these days. All the time it takes place, the brain is pretty much passive. So, latest research is showing not only are people getting physically unhealthier but, more so, less intelligent. Less likely to do courses or learn engineering skills or basically live around drive and initiative. Clearly the guy who did the video above has been feeling the same as me (check out the sad, bewildered solitary face).
