There are people alive today…

…who were born before there was a single artificial satellite in space.

…who were born before there was commercial air travel.

…who were born before plastic was invented.

…who were born before DNA was discovered.

…who were born before a single bit of digital information was stored anywhere.

We’ve made such a staggering amount of progress in a single human lifetime, and this progress continues to accelerate. This includes technologies with which we haven’t even evolved to cope, such as social media. Are we sure that we should continue progressing at this pace without taking a breath and taking the time to understand how these things are impacting our society, our psyche, and our future?
