I spend most of my time reading and learning from other people ( absorption ). There is nothing wrong with that, of course; but I'm going to set out some more time, in order to engage in proactive thinking and creativity ( production ). I'm going to choose some topics to profoundly contemplate upon. I will harness all of my intellectual energy into analyzing certain things and creating new ideas.

I recommend that you guys do that same, if you aren't already. This is a good way to, really, maximize your intellectual potential.

I've been engaged on internet forums since Sept. 2006, and while many older people claim that computers and other electronic media are taking people away from contact with other people, I say it is making us more connected than ever before. One example I use is that in a face to face conversation I can interact with the people I can see and are close enough for me to hear. Electronically I can interact with people anywhere in the world, and someday perhaps off world. When I'm on the net, I'm reading other people's thoughts and ideas, real or not. I really don't see much difference between that and reading a book, except that a book can get old rather quickly, but on a forum new ideas can constantly be posted.

I agree with you that it does and can make people more connected socially. We can instantly communicate with people from around the world, at the click of a button. Facebook, Skype, instant messenger, these forums, etc make communication very easy and widespread. So, yes - modern technology certainly can bring people closer together, but that being said, it is through an artificial medium....it's, obviously, not the same thing as communicating face-to-face in the flesh. Establishing emotional connections is limited through technology.

The only part of this I would disagree with is the contention that being "artificial" it somehow isn't "real". There is assumed to be another real person on the other end, so the communication and interaction is just as real as a face to face interaction. and I agree that body language and facial expression is lost, but that just forces the person to put all that into the words on the page. (I try to do that by typing harder, doesn't that come through?) Seriously, being more careful with your word choice isn't a bad thing.

The communication is real, but he is talking about the lack of human presence. This has been going on for ages anyway, when you have somebody represent you, or telephones, letters etc ..and then there's emoticons that compensate for the lack of facial expressions..it's not just communication world wide, it's locally as well, AND it's not just casual conversation, the internet medium replaces friendships and relationships, even sexual interaction.. I guess people are getting slightly worried now.

I personally enjoy interacting face to face and try to do it as much as possible, and i would choose that form of interaction over the internet any day..In fact, I have even thought about walking away from the internet completely! ..and cultivating new friendships and relationships in "real" life, but i know you would all miss me so much and develop a potentially fatal level of separation anxiety. So, of course, I'm only here to maintain your mental health until you're ready to be a productive member of society...which is probably never..so i'm forever damned!
