Albert Einstein Predictions about Technology!

Isn’t technology wonderful? Yes, but it can be overused and misused. Isn’t it odd that mobile communications was supposed to promote more conversation and make life better, but it has actually created the opposite effect? Try this the next time you attend an event , take a trip to the mall, supermarket, park, museum or now even church: turn your phone off and take a few deep breaths, now observe people around and you will notice that about 70 percent of the people staring at their phones. What’s so important that people have to look at their phones every minute of the day? The worst transgression occurs while driving and notice drivers in adjacent lanes texting and surfing the web; now that’s very selfish, I mean one doesn’t have the right to endanger everyone else on the road near them. The sensible thing to do is just pull over or just wait until you reach your destination to text and surf; I promise you the world won’t disappear if you wait to use your phone during your next pit stop. I’m sure you all have seen the television commercial where a quadriplegic teenager describes how he was paralyzed while texting and driving, after the accident his phone was retrieved and the letters “ UR” were on the display, so not even a full set of words caused paralysis for life, Wow!
Technology Curse and blessing
Oh here’s a pet peeve, what the heck does a five year old need with a cell phone. My kids didn’t get cell phones until high school, at times it made them social outsiders, but the upside: they are much better at one on one communication than most of their peers. One to one communication seems to be a lost art these days and although my kids didn’t get phones until much later in their teens they are well adjusted and doing well. It wasn’t easy delaying the technology of a cell phone , but sometimes parents must step away from the masses, not cower to the culture and make prudent adult decisions.
unintended negatives of Technology
My chiropractor says the cell phone has increased business for his profession, because all cell phone users hold their heads in a prolong downward position and this frequent and daily position puts a strain on the head, neck, posture and spine. Again, the next time you are in a public setting, check out the posture of everyone as they stare into their phone. What’s the only way to avoid cell phone neck strain? It involves keeping your head level, stare straight ahead and hold the phone at eye level, but of course most people wouldn’t have the discipline to practice this injury free technique, plus it’s an un-natural way to hold the phone.
We have a good practice in my family. Whenever we go out for dinner, everyone leaves their phone in the car. It’s amazing, because we talk to each other and discuss how each other’s day went and etc. Amazingly, we haven’t suffered withdrawals or died because of this minor sacrifice.
Albert Einstein;s prediction about Technology
Albert Einstein predicted and I quote: “”I fear the day when the technology overlaps with our humanity”……The world will only have a generation of idiots.” (Albert Einstein). I know what you are probably thinking, but the truth hurts.
