Minuses of Technology

 Greetings, dear readers. Today we will look with you at the other side of the coin of technological development. We are all used to thinking of technology as the best thing that ever happened to human. But today, we will look at the disadvantages that technology has brought us.

Minuses of technology

Laziness and degradation 

Such ambiguity in principle is inherent in the NTP with its complexity and ambiguity: where there is something good, there may be unpleasant pitfalls. The same applies to free time: if it becomes too much, there is saturation, and hence - it's idle killing in activities that have no practical benefit. So we can say, for example, about Web surfing (aimless "jumping" from one site to another) and leaving for the world of virtual reality and computer games. But do not compare Web-surfing and video games to the computer as a whole, because the pc is a powerful tool in many industries and can bring substantial benefits if it is used as intended. So don't rush to sell the pc or sell iphone 13, you will still need them! In addition, people get so used to hours of idle leisure time that later, when they have to solve a problem, they no longer approach it seriously and responsibly but do "stumble along," wanting to get free as soon as possible.

All of the above leads to the development of clique thinking, the emergence of which was foreshadowed in the 1962 work "Gutenberg Galaxy" by Canadian philosopher Marshall McLuhan. The term refers to a perception of the world in which information is stored in the head in individual messages, phrases, words, pictures, and images. It is a natural reaction to the establishment and triumph of the information age with its television, Internet, competing media, etc. As a result, information is understood and remembered. As a result, only the most striking theses are understood and remembered, but the topic is rarely considered fully and in context.

A strong and obvious correlation 

One only has to think about how technological advances have become entrenched in today's reality, and it gets very uncomfortable. Today, millions of people cannot imagine their existence without a car, a cell phone, or a computer. To say nothing of the smaller devices with which, one way or another, everyone interacts mechanically, on automatic control: fax machines, printers, various notification systems, etc. It is precisely these devices with which the human being truly trusts. It is these devices that a person trusts, sometimes even more than those around him. In the memory of "smart" devices are stored important for him media files, data on health status, sleep and wakefulness mode, taste preferences, and much more.

This can become a serious threat because users begin to forget about one "but." Everything produced by their hands tends to fail sooner or later, both locally and globally. Excessive "trust" in the mechanisms may eventually play a cruel joke because it is already unclear. Will the "crown of nature" be independent enough to survive, or not?

Health blow

The last disadvantage of implementing IT is perhaps the most significant of all. Although they are actively used in medicine even to treat diseases that were formerly classified as fatal, still day by day, the devices have a passive negative impact on human bodies. These include:

No matter how hard scientists try, regular electromagnetic radiation is still at dangerous levels. It can provoke disruption of the general hormonal background, deterioration of water-salt metabolism, the development of malignant tumors and pathologies of the cardiovascular system, bronchial asthma, Alzheimer's disease, and depression.

The back curvature is due to frequent sitting at a computer or laptop in the wrong posture—consequently, the manifestation of cervical osteochondrosis, scoliosis, intervertebral hernias, and other spinal problems.

Adverse effects on the visual organs can lead to "computer eye syndrome" (fatigue, dryness, redness, headaches), decreased flexibility of the lens, and presbyopia ("senile vision").


Today we have considered the most significant disadvantages in the development of technology. But despite these disadvantages, the pros still outweigh the cons. Thanks to technology, we can read these articles, watch videos and communicate far away from each other. We can work in the company on the another side of the world. We can make friends from all corners of the world. 

It's hard to overestimate the contribution of technology to humanity and its capabilities.
