These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I’m not downplaying that.
The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.
The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.
