Future is something which we are always excited about. But how about if that same future is really dark. Well, Technology has come so far but at the very same time making us lethargic and lazy. We always have a perception that this xyz app will help us in some way but that app is not helping us but making us a dependent person.

Now Tv series like Black Mirror is actually telling us the truth, where technology literally becomes a part of our life. Parenting, dating, social skills, currency exchange, Gaming, They have covered it all. Some of the tech may look like really advance of our time in the tv series but somehow we can relate things to our timeline. Thespeech by Simon Sinek was really a blessing for people where he actually outspoke the truth of our current social scenario. He mostly mentioned about the effortless tech we use and how those things are affecting our natural life where he also emphasized the relevance of patience in a human mind.

In a research, It is been said, that people and earlier generations who lived without technology lived a better time as they enjoyed the real world and they just didn’t look down in their smartphones, but they dreamt to create one. And now the devices are all around. From a person who doesn’t get a bite to eat, to the person who eats way more than his potential, everybody has a gadget to communicate & wander virtually.

Everything has pro’s and con’s but if the thing holds more of the second one than the first, then it’s really bad to engage with it. Well, that is technology is doing to us. The best example would be Elon Musk’s company SpaceX. He has brought in great tech solutions in this world which somehow making the world a better place on a macro level. His company is an aerospace transport services giant which helps with the goal of reducing space transportation costs and enabling the colonization of Mars.

Technology is something which is created to ease a man’s life by pressing down the complexity of the process and to deliver a seamless experience for the same. But it is getting so easy and painless that people have ceased to use their elementary part of their brain and are getting so much dependent on the latest tech solutions. We are losing patience and the element of a basic effort that we used to do when we have to approach the opposite gender so we can satisfy our need of love or When we have to travel with a component of exploration or When we used to build trust by having a conversation.

All of that has now become a part of our history. After few years, A person talking to another person will be a sculpture and soon will transform into a famous statue where people will spend a fortune to have a look at it and will become so foolish that the sculpture they are looking at, they actually have it.
