Do changes that make our lives easier not necessarily make them better?

 

Throughout time mankind has strived to make his life easier. Whether it be throughtechnology, science, or theories of social interaction every generation has made onecontribution. From the idea of crop rotation to the cellular telephone mankind hasadvanced. It can be argued however, that not all of these advancements were beneficial.Many times people are accused of “taking the easy way out”, something that is lookeddown upon in today’s society.

Consider, if you will, ancient Greecian Society. With hardly any of the technological orscientific advancements we have today, they were able to produce some of the greatestthinkers of all time. Socrates and Plato still influence modern philosophical thought. Inaddition, these men were well versed in all disciplines. They were thinkers,mathamaticians, writers, scientists, artists and much more. Examine some other greatmen in history. Leonardo Davinci was one of the greatest scientists and also one of thegreatest artists of all time, he even invented and drew up early plans for the helicopter.These ancient men, without the technology and ease of life we have today, were able toproduce some of the most prolific additions to human knowledge ever.

 

Now let us examine some men from our time. Bill Gates, while adding immensely to thepleasures and ease of man’s life, did so only by forcefully destroying many fledglingcompanies and completely undermining our capitalistic market place. Very very few menin our time are leaders in more than one discipline. There are no scientists/artists orwriter/mathamaticians. Men, while being able to more deeply delve into a discipline, arenow restricted to it. I attribute this to technology. We now have a life outside of our work.A life with computers, cars, movies, and dinner with the family from across the country.Mankind can no longer devote himself to his work. He has his work life, and his homelife. While a cell phone allows me to talk to anyone from anywhere, it prevents me frombeing alone and fully concentrating. While the internet allows me to look at websitesfrom around the world, it prevents me from doing the work I set out to do.

 

While technology and science have made man’s life easier, they have not made it better.Man has become less productive and less devoted, partly, as a result of this newfoundease of life. Therefore, What makes our lives easier does not necessarily make thembetter.
