For a while now I've been mulling over my mixed feelings about how tethered we are to technology in general, and our Smartphones and tablets in particular. I watch people everywhere with their eyes down, completely unaware of their surroundings, the world passing them by - literally.  The question is, "Is it such a big deal or not?"

I’ve had trouble putting it into words for two reasons: 1) It’s evolution and no doubt, we’ll adapt as we have in the past, and 2) for all its flaws, technology also brings with it a myriad of advantages. So, I’m torn.  

But then, this email came through my inbox, and when put to me this this way (in pictures), the whole thing caused a bit of a pit in my stomach.  All I could see was how much we were missing from this obsession with what exactly, I don't know.  What is it about electronics?  Why are they swallowing us whole?  It makes me wonder if our hearts will atrophy as they fail to receive the exercise they need to thrive from interacting and connecting with other human beings.  My ultimate fear is that humankind will end up as one dimensional as the flat, little screens on which it has come to depend.
