It doesn’t really matter our point of view on what is technology or what it does. We must accept technology is the biggest construct on our bleep of existence.
We can argue about language being technology, but we can’t really do the same with platforms/channels/systems, not now.
Everything can and will be manipulated, in fact, everything IS manipulated.
If we don’t accept that fact, we don’t really understand or care. Both are a really dangerous circumstances, both for the nature and its consequences.
Humanity can not sustain more development without a critical approach to its existence, more specifically humans, as single beings, can’t.
The amount of resources needed to comprehend everything, literally, limit our understanding of ourselves as beings, so we rapidly attach ourselves to the nearest more digestible framework of information in order to make sense of our existence.
Problem is the framework we choose to use contains as many revisions as people has chosen to. Frameworks being a tool, has purposes. Do we fully understand those purposes? Who where those who decided what were those purposes? Do we really agree on them?
More importantly, can we modify, both frameworks and purposes, in order to improve them?
If so, who else already did it, how and why?!
We can’t understand everything, but we can always stand in the shoulders of giants and try, so others can do the same.
We are technology
We: become ,constructed, developed, inherited, discovered, interpreted, decanted; Technology.
Now what part of your existence will you hack now?
