Technology has the following benefits :
- You save an ample amount of time doing some task
- It improves your productivity (in terms of the quality of work)
- It augments your abilities
- It’s very effective when repetitive work has to be done
- It doesn’t get bored or have any other emotions
- It’s easy to use
In a world full of technology, as it progresses rapidly on a day-to-day basis, life can get transformed by it. Many people lose their living,because of technology. However, new types of jobs are created. People need to become tech-savvy in order to survive in today’s world. With the rise of machine intelligence, the future will be drastically transformed by technology.As it invades our offices, homes and even our mind and body, it remains to be seen, what other areas will it touch. Be it a farmer, an executive or a politician,nobody can avoid this speedy juggernaut coming towards us with full speed.
In this age of machine learning and artificial intelligence, there are still a couple of things, it can’t do :
- Computers lack awareness
- It can’t live without electricity
- It will take some time to replace specific jobs like say that of a psychologist
- It does not have emotions
- It can’t say ‘wow’ looking at a painting
- It can’t perceive God
Although, these are some of the limitations of technology,the gap between the have and the have-nots are rapidly being bridged. Some people talk of ‘singularity’ – the time when a machine becomes like human. 2038/ 2029 (many people give many dates) We all are reminded of killer robots and other doomsday scenarios. However, these are unlikely to happen, if we have an ethical foundation for software development pertaining to artificial intelligence.
As these things happen, human beings will have more time to explore their inner selves. The yearning for well-being will rise, with the times. As we progress further, we will become more spiritual. This simply means that we will be well-connected with God. Our right side of the brain which is the channel to God’s world will become active. Simply said, we will become more aware – knowing that we are a spiritual spark. The mind is perhaps the most powerful computer in this world. As the late Wayne Dyer put it, ‘When we change to look at things, the things looking at us will change’. It simply reminds us of how powerful our mind is in manufacturing the perceived reality.
The new world order would be spiritual beings like us being helped by machines to achieve liberation. As machines proliferate, we will have a better world to live in. More time in our hands to pursue things that matter to us. A world where the gap between the haves and have-nots will go away. A world where we are granted the pursuit of happiness. Where death doesn’t seem to be dreadful,but the voyage of life becomes more and more beautiful and meaningful. In short,the potential of each one of us would be realized rather than being squandered away in petty differences. The feeling that we are not just specks of sand, but the beach itself. The right to claim what is rightfully ours – that we are the child of the ‘Emperor’ above. And nothing can stop us from realizing this. A happy and a united world …
God Bless !
