Would Life Be Better Without Technology? – Modern Koans

By Andrew Furst @a_furst

Question: What is it like to live without technology?

Response:  Technology has been integrated into human evolution for hundreds of thousands of years.   Probably starting with tool making or language.   It’s part of who we are and how we thrive as a species. My thought is that the closest thing to a human without technology is an australopithecine. But there are none alive to ask.

Technology helped us get to where we are today. Doing without it seems impossible.  Indulging too heavily creates problems as well.

How do you deal with the problems that are inherent with our devices?  Do you rely too heavily on it? Do you spend too much time focused on your device?  Do you have a way to manage a happy medium?

I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

Modern Koans is an ongoing series that recognizes that good questions are often more important then their answers.

The riddles of God are more satisfying than the solutions of man. ― G.K. Chesterton
