We humans as a species are a funny bunch. We may be at our most advanced, with all the gadgets and gizmos to make life easier for us. But take it all away, and how would you cope? Take a look at the possibilities.
Can we actually live a world without technology?
The simple answer is “NO”. It will be a disaster for the people of 21st century. We have done wonders with our technology. Without it we are a bunch of animals living in the woods and praising the imaginary power in the sky.
We have built speedy cars, airplane, tall buildings, vaccines, explored the space and creating life itself.
In short technology (advancement in science) is helping us to find the meaning of human existence.
A world without technology is a dark and uncertain world for modern human.
Without your music players
No iPod courtesy of Apple – shudder, gasp! You would have to go retro with a Walkman and carry a small mountain of CDs around to match the MP3 equivalent. Unless we’re going really old school, then perhaps a gramophone would be more appropriate (although you really couldn’t carry one of those around with you).
Going further back, if we remove any kind of musical instruments or players from your life? You do not have fine tuned guitar, dram pad or a recorder?
Their will be no music industry. Monkeys do not need music.
There will be a partial fall in economy too. Can you imagine you can enjoy a song only if someone sings it to you?
If we do not have Google from tomorrow?
A world without the wisdom of Google. The thought alone is enough to make most students feel faint. With no more answers magically produced in seconds, you would have to use one of those things called a book.
We would have to strive to get our answers which could be satisfying if not a little frustrating. And you’d have to venture into the wide world with no world-wide web. You could go to a library, or do all your shopping in the chaotic real world.
And going further back, we are removing the internet from the world. Imagine the huge black-hole in our information system. Our total sociaty might collapse. We will still live, but like the primitive souls. Depending on horse messenger to deliver our messages.
Modern war, espionage, satellite all will go dark. I do not actually want to think about it.
And without Facebook, we’d actually have to remember each other’s birthdays, and face the dire consequences if we fail to.
Jokes apart, Facebook is the single most vital player in online socializing. Removing only Facebook will sure make a huge bad effect on our business and daily life.
No matter what Facebook is becoming everyday, it sure plays a great role in our economy and people’s psychology. Without Facebook, you have very little way to reconnect your old friends, sharing info’s and verifying your Gov’s agenda.
People need to give their opinion and Facebook mostly increased the power of people’s voice. Removing power from people, once they have tasted it is a disaster.
Life without your mobile
If you didn’t have your mobile, and a friend doesn’t turn up where you agreed to meet, what would you do? You would just have to go home, I suppose. Just go home.
And with no television or films, we would have to talk to our friends and families. Or get out there and socialize. Perhaps that wouldn’t be such a bad thing. Without online gaming, many of us would actually be able to talk to our partners, a wondrous thought. No more love triangles with the Xbox!
It wasn’t that long ago since we didn’t have any of these luxuries. My Grandmother told me stories of when she was younger. She would go dancing on a Saturday night, or go to the seaside with her sizable family. They made time for each other and would tell stories together or sit around the wireless on cold nights.
There were much more green spaces, so they could play sports outside (the Wii does not count). Neighbors did become good friends. No social networking meant you would have to go out and get to know each other.
It may have been a simpler time, but it does sound pretty great.
So… Do you think you could survive without technology?
Has technology advanced humanity?
Would we be in trouble without such things as ID software for security or severe weather forecasting or National Security technologies?
I challenge you to give up one thing, such as social networking, for a few days. See what you can do with all that extra time. And you should probably stop if your knees start to shake.
So, can we live a world without technology?
Already said, the simple answer is “NO”.
As a 21st century person you have seen and enjoyed many technological advances. Now you can’t just live without that. We will be going backward and there will be no advancement in human race.
As a race we will fail big time. Think it as like living in a isolated tribe of Amazon forest. Who were never contacted by the modern people. They are surviving but still depends on their hunting for food and magic god when they are ill. There number are getting lower after each decade.
So, what is your thought about living without technology? How much do you prefer?
Most escapist gives lecture on how technology is hurting our human relation with nature. But they are wearing clothes and eating foods in the restaurant that is provide or enhanced via technological advancement.
Remember one thing, this is how we evolve as a human race. We thrive because we are technologically advanced than other animals living on this plane.
