Wired Man

"Man attempts to outthink creation by rewiring and rerouting our spiritual circuitry. We are tantalized by wires connected to outside stimuli and distracted by colorful pictures and
plethoric sounds knocking our consciousness into oblivion.

More importance is placed on technological connection rather than human connection. Sooner than not, we will be wired to an electronic cable extended from the sky and pulled to a destiny determined by a satellite. We will be devoid of spirit and full of tangled multi-colored wires delicately choking our sense of existence. Can we really shed this mortal coil with the push of a button or is it another obstacle from getting to know ourselves?"

Technology is a crutch that encourages humans to look to their own creations for power beyond themselves. Too often we use our mortal engines and imperfect works as a substitute for the deeper realities that we secretly crave.

I don't know if technology makes us Dr. Frankensteins or just monsters. I do know that there is such an utter reliance on it that we should be careful not to let the machine take over our sensibilities and control our every move. I often wonder if more time and money goes into creating new technologies rather than medical research? Time will tell.

Well, one thing is for sure, most of the technology and research goes into military research, new technology for killing.
