Let us finally face the ugly truth and that this stuff is addictive and isn't making the quality of life any better.

Worse still it's being used by the government and corporations to enslave us and kill us if we step out of line.

Lol.
No doubt ancient man said the same thing about fire.

Read what Ted Kaczynski wrote in his manifesto. When it came out, there was a very uncomfortable time for a little bit where everyone basically admitted that the murderous mad bomber was pretty much right. Then his defense team went for insanity, and everyone took the chance to not think about those uncomfortable thoughts.

If Kascynski hadn't been tortured as part of MK ultra experiment (look it up, accepted history), it is likely he would have gone down as a Noam Chomsky level dissenter and intellectual.

P.S. Don't mail bomb anyone and hello to you, the NSA and FBI bot recording this. I can't wait to file a FOIA in twenty years and read all my favorite shittalking LOP posts lol.

Say what?
Trust me, the moment ancient man figured out fire the very next thing he did was kill things with it.
That's kind of how we roll with technology.

We are about the only species that it doesn´t matter what we find or use, we manage to turn it against us. Dumb.

That's what makes us special.
Technology isn't the problem. We're the problem.

What is technology in the context of this thread?
Are we talking 2010 and later social media landscape? Sure, it was a mistake, take the internet offline, close-down silicon valley, send the tech nerds to work with Elon or on fusion power or something that isn't another dumb app.
The industrial revolution? Will either be what stops the human tidal wave or what leads us to the starts.
The agricultural revolution? You're dumb.
The cultural/language revolution? You're a "special" kind of person that mostly posts on weird lefty boards and not on places like this, but screw you.

If you are deep anti-technology person that thinks we went wrong with planting seeds, this is my take.

Humans have to have technology. If you've never noticed this before, the female body isn't really adapted well for child birth, and giving birth in the wild was one of the most dangerous things human could do. A really optimistic assessment is that a child can function more or less in the tribe by 10, but that's pushing it. Before that, they're vulerable as all hell. So ten years of effort and a big chance of death for just one more human.

Compare that to, say, a house cat. A house cat, year after year, can get pregnant, still function up until the moment of birth, birth three to five kittens, raise them to adulthood in less than three months, and be on her way. I think the math works out to cats having a breading edge on us somewhere north of a 1000 to one.

Technology didn't corrupt us, it is the only thing that keeps the species viable outside our homelands in Africa (as of a few days ago, I guess that might include Asia and other places). Hell, even our intimidate ancestor species had technology of some form, and the chimps seem to have something of an idea of it.

We'd have turn the clock back more than 10 million years to get before technology.

"can we turn away from the technology abyss?"

Nope, too late. I base that on the eyes sealed shut sheople I know who venerate technology almost as much as they worship mammon.

It was a bit of a catch 22.
It was the development of our great big brains that made childbirth for humans such a problem.
Without those great big brains though, we would not have been able to overcome our predator adversaries by creating tools and weapons, in order to overcome their superior natural weapons.

Personally I say that trying to funnel the amount of consciousness that we are at now, through these poor animal brains is a zero sum situation.

Replacing them and our bodies with technological ones, is an idea that redefines bad. Anything that humans create, humans can and will exploit.

Evolving beyond the physical entirely and utilizing forms of pure energy is a possible solution. Although, at the present time, the vast majority cannot even entertain this thought. Attempting to consider existence beyond the physical, while still physical is the realm of mystics and madmen.

Consciousness is an ocean from a distance.
A wave from above.
Droplets from within.
