Technology has become so integral and an indispensable part of our daily life that we hardly spend time thinking about life without technology. Today there are almost no spheres of life which have not been impacted by technology. They have well and truly made our life easier, faster, convenient and comfortable. But at the same time, it has come with its share of vices.
We as a society have become lazier and have learnt to take things in a laid back fashion. We have become very sedentary in our lifestyles. While these are things which are within our control, if somebody states that there is no life without technology is he or she true or are they taking things a bit too far? Let us try and find answers for the same over the next few lines.
We Are In An Information Age
It would be pertinent to mention here that we are today living in an information age. Whether we like it or not we will be flooded with information. In spite of trying to insulate ourselves from information, it is now becoming extremely difficult to keep ourselves from being swamped by information.
Information inflow and outflow are possible because of technology and the way in which it has progressed. Though there could be some downsides to information, there is no doubt that it does help us to lead better lives and take decisions, which are based on facts and knowledge rather than being driven by gut feeling and emotions.
Let Us For A Moment Take Ourselves Out Of Technology
If for a moment we removed technology from our daily things, how would life be? It would be virtually impossible to lead our normal lives. We will not be able to get our morning dose of the newspaper because the impact of technology is important. Mobile phones have become an indispensable part of our daily lives. Hence, it would be impossible to text messages and get to know what is happening around the world.
Imagining a few hours without the internet would certainly be painful and excruciating, to say the least. When it comes to paying utility bills, booking rail and air tickets, booking appointments with doctors who could be situated quite a few distance away, there is hardly any doubt that modern day technology has a significant role to play.
Hence, there cannot be any doubt that we have moved so far ahead with technology that it would be impossible to lead a life without it.
