When was the last time you sent a handwritten letter to someone you care about?
Do you find out about important events through social media first?
In gatherings, do you look at your family and friends or the phone more?
Technology is a wonderful thing. It is meant to make our lives easier and make everyday processes more efficient, but while it has helped us, it might also be hurting us. Contact with other human beings can often be superficial. We forget the feeling and smell of a book with a long history, or the value of a single moment, one that doesn’t require a picture to be immortalized, but a good memory.
Have you ever asked yourself what you would do, who you would see, or where you would go if you weren’t busy on social media? Why can’t you have those experiences and take the social media with you?
Today, I’m sharing a video in which someone decided to play with the concept of being allergic to modern technological advances and devices. This video plays with the idea and concept of technology and the codependency often associated with it. This disease causes the protagonist to make some fascinating discoveries about himself, the world around him, and the people in it.
Maybe the video will open your eyes to some things around you too.
