04 Feb 4 Reality Checks That Technology Gives Us Every Day
When we talk about the existence of technology in our lives, it is not a surprise that we literally exist and breathe on the technology. Whenever we cannot do anything or fail ourselves in trying to complete something, we blame it on the underperformance of any technological factor which was involved in the building up and execution as well as planning. The reason for this kind of dependence on technology has got a lot to do with the marketing of technology as well as the way our lives have become in this day and age.
Technology might be something that can uncover the most impossible scenarios and innovations for us, but it also reminds us of the fact that just how life is temporary in this world, technology also cannot offer everything and anything. Sometimes any technology can fall short of the expectations and over reliance on the technology can create a lot of negative consequences. For example, sometimes we rely on a certain device to work and we do not have any backup for it and when it doesn’t work the way we want then we face all the rash circumstances. Today’s blog is going to talk about various reality checks that technology provides us every day.
Technology’s Obvious Limitations:
Despite saying that technology can cover almost every shortcoming of a human being, we still cannot make it enough to find a cure for severe illness, save airplane crashes or predict earthquakes to save thousands of lives. This is why we cannot obviously ignore or undermine the obvious limitations that the technological innovations carry with them. Similarly, technology is always temporary if we do not find a solution to advance it, then it will become obsolete.
It Will Always Rely On Humans:
Humans’ reliance on technology is a complete myth, technology in fact relies on human in every possible way. No matter how automated a certain technological innovation is, its reliance on a human operator and someone to maintain it will always be there. One cannot ignore the fact that without human existence, technology itself cannot stay the ground. This is why it is so important to understand that technology never will define a human being, but as a matter of fact a human can define technology and manage it the way he wants.
The Obvious Advantages:
Having said how limited technology can be, it has its obvious advantages. Technology can create opportunities and fill the gaps that humans can’t. Maybe it cannot save airplane crashes, but it can definitely improve the security and safety measures to make airplane crashes highly unlikely.
Technology Is The Reality:
We must also accept the fact that in the age we live in technology has knowingly or unknowingly become a highly critical factor in our lives. We cannot really think of going back to the old age where manual living was the way to go. This is why it is so much more important that as humans we create a balance and management system that takes out all the advantages and tries to avoid all the disadvantages of the technological world.
