Technology and culture are deeply interrelated. If technology change, social culture will change. Just how the industrial revolution turned people into a industrial humans; with different values and mass pursuers. The same thing will happen today! Indeed our contemporary experience of reality is not a new age, but time repeating itself.
The greatest unawareness of our time is the affect of rapid change in technology on an individual. Humans are usually repellent to change. But when change is enforced a great confusion is born, in our case a mass confusion where the truth is no longer distinguished. Philosophers call such a crisis “A Future Shock . Undoubtedly people will adapt to advanced technology over time. Yet not everybody will “get it”. The majority of people will be confused which will lead to mental illness. Because the human brain is designed to protect when attacked and a future shock is a mental attack.
How to survive in a future shock?
- Accept the situation, to heal you must accept. Change can be difficult at time. Matter of fact everyone deals with change differently. Don’t rush yourself, just work on yourself until you digest the reality. Have a positive mindset and eventually you will adapt.
- Learn to unlearn, relearn and learn. In my opinion mind flexibility is Laterally the only key to future survival. In order to develop this skill need to constantly doing new things, exposing yourself to new experiences and don’t get too attached to any fixed form or title.
