Question from the Internet:
“In what ways has technology failed to bring people closer together and achieve greater understanding among all of humanity? What would need to happen to fix those failures?”
We are expecting too much from technology. After all technology is simply a tool and what it does, how it performs depends solely on the users, us.
We have all the necessary technology to bring us together and create a unique, unprecedented global Human network.
Instead we use the Internet and all our virtual connection as we use everything else: for selfish profit, ruthless competition, to search for and fulfill our most basic, animate desires and to brainwash people with different philosophies, ideologies while forcing them to excessively overconsume everything.
In order to fix the misuse of technology, first we need a very different, crucial important “technology”, the “technology of Human connection”.
Through a unique, purposeful and highly practical educational method we will need to learn how to build selfless, altruistic, mutually responsible and mutually complementing interconnections, cooperation above and against our inherently selfish, egotistic, exploitative urges, instincts.
And we can use all the technology we invented for this purpose!
