Technology feeds both our hearts and minds. As we seek wisdom and guiding principles to help, tech—commonly, in the form of Google—plays a tremendous role in shaping our sense of right and wrong.
MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
Technology is making the world smaller and bringing individuals closer together. From the ancient “thou art that” to the contemporary idea of crowdsourcing, these connections drive art, wisdom, commerce, and even a new human understanding around politics and world peace.
Our collective engagement results in a democratization of data, ideas and the very social structure that can exercise power in the interest of all.
While truth represents the cornerstone of various aspects of society, this very foundation is under stress from technology’s ability to reproduce or even “fake” a reality that cannot be discerned from the original.
Our senses no longer provide a safe haven for reality but are subject to technological victimization.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Yet today’s technological influences can project a reality where beauty can extend into the very process of viewing—the user experience.
Augmented, virtual, and mixed reality will become the new artist’s brush to translate a conventional sense of beauty into a multidimensional sensory experience.
Technology ethics is the application of ethical thinking to the practical concerns of technology.
The reason technology ethics is growing in prominence is that new technologies give us more power to act, which means that we have to make choices we didn't have to make before. While in the past our actions were involuntarily constrained by our weakness, now, with so much technological power, we have to learn how to be voluntarily constrained by our judgment: our ethics.
Together, these two create the philosopical approach-
Accept what is, stay in the present moment, and appreciate the simple, transient stages of life.
