Few people now know the absolute magic of creating fire from nothing but material found in the environment. There are so many ways to start a fire now, and most of them are so simple that we take for granted what an amazing feat it is. Fire is the original technology. Its use predates modern humans.
Technology can do more than ever. So much of it may as well be magic it’s so incredible. Technology, and more specifically electronic devices, are becoming a staple of daily life. The saying, “there’s an app for that” couldn’t be more true. But what effect is all this technology having on us?
All to often, we don’t really think about what comes out of our mouth. Yes we say hurtful things that we can’t take back. But that isn’t so much what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the words we use day in and day out. Our choice of words has a huge impact on our outlook. What we say about ourselves can completely alter our perceptions and what is possible for us.
Let’s talk health care! It’s a subject many people are concerned about. Costs have gone up dramatically since I was in my late teens first shopping for my own policy. But the cost of health care isn’t what I’m here to talk about. While that’s a major problem with our current system, what I want to talk about is how our system isn’t really a health care system.
We don’t really have any relationship with death in the developed world. We don’t kill or process our food, be it plant or animal. We pack our elderly away in retirement communities. Many of us try to keep up the illusion that we are teenagers well into our middle ages. The reality is that we don’t value growing older for many reasons, but a big part of that is because we are terrified of the end of our lives.
