Technology – What Does It Actually Mean?


Technology - What Does It Actually Mean?

The end of technology as we know it is clearly around the corner. So, what does this mean for you and me?

Technology is not only about costs, prices, and convenience. It is also about a consumerist. Money obsessed society that operates in a unitary way in which the same object has similar features at different price points. Is this our future?

Technology Directly Affects The GDP

Inflation and the increasing amount of money (GDP) are the indirect results of being dependent on the system. The new system is there for us to make life easier. But, we have to adapt to it can make life harder. The consumer society is at the top of the list of culprits when it comes to increasing prices. This makes life more difficult for us.

Our dependence on technology and product advancements is both good and bad. It is great if we are able to make our life easier through technological advancements. But, it can be very stressful if we allow this reliance to control our lives.

We cannot continue to be slaves to the ever-changing technology that does so much to help us. As our new system grows, so do our expectations. And, as we all know, with increasing expectations comes increasing price points.

We all need to take a good look at what technology has done for us. We must focus on what it has replaced and what it is capable of replacing.

Technology Can Achieve Anything

We must avoid becoming the false prophets that promise such great things that cannot be achieved. We must avoid allowing the critics that only want something better to come in and be detrimental to us and the future of technology. We need to all look at ourselves in the mirror and realize we need to be the ones that invent or improve upon the technology.

Technology is nothing without us. It is up to us to use it to our advantage and not our detriment.

This is where the consumerist society has us in a bind. The more we get in the grip of technology, the more we want the newer and better versions of the technology that never really existed, to begin with. And, instead of demanding that we fix the broken system that limits our freedoms, we choose to fix what was broken.

The more we use a new system the more we become the false prophets that promise the perfect and unhindered system that will never be troubled by reality. Instead of working to make the system work for us and not against us, we are putting it into a box where it cannot change for the better.

We must look at the simple idea of having a product evolution. Change, no matter how small it is, will always be there as long as the system exists.

Conclusion

Consumerism as a lifestyle is not necessarily wrong, but it can be problematic. We need to stop being consumers and take control of our lives. We can start by examining technology and how it affects us and why we are unwilling to allow our minds to evolve in a more customer manner.
