Does anyone feel like we're becoming too dependent on technology? The other day I didn't have my cell phone with me and I realized I didn't know my mother's phone number ; nowadays phones allow us to "touch" a name, or even say, "Call mom". It was a profound and embarrassing moment after which I started thinking about the subtleties of technology dependence. I spoke with my wife about it when she got home later that night and expressed my desire to someday learn how to raise animals and grow food. Don't worry, I didn't reason my way into a doomsday prepper mindset, but with so much of what we do and depend on being inextricably attached to technology, how resilient are we as a species should we someday lose the ability to use it?
