We were not designed to work and function in a healthy manner with this much technology around us and it shows. Between social media and the vast amounts of entertainment and knowledge at our fingertips, is it any wonder children are struggling with education?
Now Elon Musk is talking about brain chips being implanted in humans next year. I feel like technology is heading down a dark path and those in power will use it to abuse people. Maybe I am being too black-pilled about things. I am not sure.
What are your thoughts?

I think I'm 50/50 on it. Part of me loves the advancement of tech and the world we live in, but another side of me worries about the need for these techs. We're seeing people addicted to the web, arguing for days in Facebook comment sections, and going out into the real world to act up.
I love tech, but there are problems with it. Addiction is a big concern of mine, especially when I see it in myself. I am addicted to looking at my phone, looking at Instagram Reels, and watching YouTube. I stopped commenting on Facebook and other sites because it's a non-winning battle with people. Saying anything can draw criticism from people, even if it's true or nothing bad, people on Facebook find a way to say something. At least if it's in a comment section for someone famous or a certain FB page.
As with Elon Musk, I don't trust what that guy says. Half the time he promises things and they never happen. I think he's all show for the most part. He's promised so many things over the years and when they would be ready, and nothing has come to fruition yet aside from his Starlink web service, which I hear isn't so hot either.
