The Impact of Technology in our lives

How large an effect does technology have on our lives and is it detrimental?

To tech or not to tech?

Let’s face it; technology is here to stay simply due to the efficiency and simplicity it presents within our lives. As we look at things in the present moment, it looks like we as humanity will reach a point where everything is done with the push of a button. But are we reaching a point where the amount of technology is too overwhelming for us? How much is too much? What good or bad does technology offer? Or does the problem not lie with the technology but with society?

Make no mistake, without technology; there wouldn’t be any advancement in society.
Hell, technology is practically the core of modern society. From the formation of communication systems such as social media platforms to the emerging importance of digital technology such as movies and music. From travelling conveniences to the spurring of economies, it is fair to say that societal advancement and technological go hand in hand.

But if we were to further investigate the link between societal advancement and technology, we could argue that technological and scientific progress are not the catalyst required for societal change, but rather serve as a reflection of the development in society. I could even go on to argue that they can be used as instruments that society uses to show that development. In my opinion, the real key would be the knowledge that one gains and applies. For example, the knowledge that agricultural scientists gained and applied plus the technology and funding which was available to them have resulted in them gaining the ability and resources to grow plant and harvest modified crops in otherwise barren nations.

Here is where things get interesting. If technology acts as a reflection of how society is developed, then technology also shows the inequalities within society. To use the same example above, if the ability and resources to provide such much need crops are available (this is of course assuming that they pass all health and food organizational regulations), then why is there a lack of urgency to distribute said resources to much needed areas but incredible urgency to the release of luxuries such as the iPhone (which if memory serves me correct, is released almost every year)?

The decision making in the handling of technology by higher ups seems to be very business orientated. This can be seen in the manner in which some jobs (especially within the general labor sector) have become obsolete or low paying. This is because technology can be used to replace people, making them redundant. This is done to cut company costs (such as wages) and increase efficiency and work rate. The unfortunate thing is that while from a business perspective, it makes sense, it still doesn’t cancel out the devastating effect it can have on families.

Even from a non-business perspective, the effects of technology are evident in everyday life. Everything we as humans knew how to do to get us where we are has become irrelevant. This is a double edged sword in that it gives us more simplicity but
at the same time outsources our usefulness to technology.

Because we as people will always try to work smart instead of working hard (and how you view that or whether you believe in either principle is an entirely different matter), there will always be a need for new technology, which is great, but at the same time, can make us as a society more lax.

To quote Kevin Kelly;
Technology wants what life wants; increasing efficiency, increasing opportunity, increasing emergence, increasing complexity, increasing diversity, increasing specialization, increasing freedom, increasing beauty, increasing sentience, increasing structure, increasing evolvability.

It is true that life has become MUCH more comfortable thanks to technology. Laborious tasks have been replaced by machines. But it is also ironic how it is also a factor in killing us with the rise of health and societal problems.

The technological industry (which practically defines society) must remember that it has a duty to cater for everyone’s interests and not just a select few. And we as people must remember that our ingenuity is just as important, if not more as technology itself.

Hope you enjoyed and thank you for reading….
