How Technology Makes Us Human

Does technology make us more human? Some say yes! We’re going to look at some of the specific ways that tech actually makes us human. Others say that technology hampers humanity, but this just isn’t the case if you look at all the facts. Once you read out list, you’re going to start to look at the technological tools you use on a daily basis in a different way most likely.

How Technology Makes us More Human

Here’s a look at several specific ways that technology can make us more human.

Skills:
Whether it’s computers or the ability to print our thoughts and knowledge down on paper to pass them down to future generations, technology makes it possible to improve skills and become better humans.

Empowerment:
They have exoskeletons on the market that allow you to be able to lift large objects easily as well as walk longer distances. This technology has even been able to help the disabled move around, which is a big part of being human.

Communication:
Being a human is all about communication. The Internet makes our lives better by providing a more efficient and instantaneous means of communication these days. Without the Internet, the global economy wouldn’t be able to be a reality. Well, it wouldn’t be as easy as it is without the ‘net. Technology has allowed us to communicate a lot more, which is a big part of us being human.

Love:
Another big part of being human is the ability to love. Technology has helped many couples be able to live more full and fulfilling lives. And telephones and other technology makes it easier for us to find someone to love us no matter what. This would still happen without technology, but tech like the Internet has made it a lot easier.

War:
This is not a positive way that technology has helped mankind, but it has to be mentioned. Technology of weapons has come a long way over the years. It’s finally reached a point where we can destroy the entire planet. This has caused some people to look at the big picture – that humans need to learn how to get along if we’re going to survive.

A man I knew provided remote desktop services, and when I first saw the technology, I was amazed. There’s so much great technology out there these days. If you look at the list above, it’s easy to see why so many agree that technology is actually a part of humanity – something that has allowed us to come a long way in a short time. Without technology, we’d still be living in caves and scavenging for food around the planet. Leave us a comment if there’s one piece of technology that you couldn’t do without. Don’t worry, there’s probably  more than one piece of tech that makes your life easier so leave a list of everything you need to survive the modern world.
