Is Our Biology Ready for the Technological Advancements of Today? 🧫

Updated: Dec 17, 2023

Human biology, including our brains and nervous systems, evolved gradually over millennia. Historically, technological changes were slow, allowing our biology to adapt to environmental stimuli and information.


DALL-E imagining the contrast between the speed of change in human biology and tech

Human biology, including our brains and nervous systems, evolved gradually over millennia. Historically, technological changes were slow, allowing our biology to adapt to environmental stimuli and information.


Contrastingly, today's technology is advancing exponentially. Innovations due to AI flood us with data, outpacing our biological adaptation. (Pascal BORNET posted about Rewind AI's tool collecting all our digital memories and how it helps people who suffered memory loss.)


We're processing unprecedented amounts of information. The impossible is now possible.


This swift technological progression is having concerning effects. Increases in anxiety, depression, and attention disorders are evident. Many of us feel overwhelmed, overstimulated, impacting our focus and mental health. Our evolutionary design isn't keeping up with this rapid pace.


However, we can't reverse technological advancement. It's set to continue its swift pace. So, what's our response?


It's crucial to interact with technology more intentionally. Boundaries. Focused work. Real human connections. Most importantly, we must steer technology's advancement towards ethical and human-centric goals. ✌🏻
