ecoTrain QOTW #9.4: Can Spirituality and Technology Live Together?

in ecoTrain6 months ago (edited)


What is reality really? Is it what happens in our hearts and minds, or is it what happens in the external world? Is there really even a difference? The question of whether reality as we have come to know it is any more or less real than any artificial one is perhaps quite pertinent to answering this weeks QOTW! As we march on toward a highly technological future it's worth asking whether it will be good for us, as spiritual beings, or even as human beings, to spend part or even much of our lives plugged into virtual worlds and lives. It is very likely that physical contact as we know it will be far reduced as more and more people choose to interact via avatars in their virtual world of choice. This is not to say that there will be no physical contact, so to speak. With hepatic feedback, and who knows maybe even some neural implants, people could experience touch and sensation much like they do now, perhaps even enhanced. Imagine pushing the sensitivity up to 10 when you want to try cuddling your loved one. The question is, of course, to what extent it matters that we may become intermeshed, even dependant on technology to live our daily lives. You could say that it matter not really since ultimately this whole world is an illusion, and getting back to the first point I started out making, is there really a difference between what happens in our minds our outside of it. Perhaps what is more important is our inner world, how we perceive things, and how we react and interact with them.

This is a tough question, and requires an open mind and some foresight to accept that technology is coming for most of us whether we like it or not. The question is whether you or your children will be a part of it?

I look forward to reading your responses everyone! I have no idea what the mood will be on this one, but i sure expect to reads posts with very different opinions. I will surely write for this QOTW, but am going to need to do some deep pondering to come up with an answer! Good luck to all of us for this very important Question Of The Week! You answers can include any feelings and ideas you have, but can also include stories of how technology may have already helped or hindered your Spiritual development. There are many gadgets out there already, perhaps you have tried one?


We invite everyone to partake, from all walks of life. There is no right or wrong answer as no one can truly say what destiny has in store for us, or indeed who we really even are!

Great question which is really tough one, the reason is spiritual people lessly like technology and the people belong to technology don't believe spirituality for some reason. Right now I posted this one https://ecency.com/hive-123046/@aliakbar2/types-of-natural-vegetables-and

my next post will be regarding question of the week.

Very interesting question. I think we must keep some balance because we are creatures of nature but technologies are invented to help us and to make our lives better and safer.
We can't reject technologies and don't need to do so. But also we should not to be their slaves

Very interesting your answer @jerryzikko sure that is the feeling that motivates everyone to create and it works well.

There is a lot of reason in what you say @rayt2. Scientists have always inquired about life and its conception, for it now they have verified that Jesus existed and that he was among us and that everything he did here on earth was true. So now they want to know what is on the planets and so on. Everything is wonderfully meshed to make it work.

So very true. even the non-believers have "a belief" that He doesn't exist :) But if they believe He doesn't exist then why are they so scared?

Spirituality and technology are deep subjects, just as science is being studied continuously, spirituality is also being brought into life.
