Should humans develop a literal symbiotic relationship with their technological devices?

  • Symbiotic, not symbolic

    Symbiotic in a sense is collective intelligence, like the Borg from StarTrek. I predict in our lifetimes a computer made from DNA, allowing us to think both independently and collectively. No surgery needed, no problems upgrading. Just imagine taking a DNA 'pill' to give yourself bullet proof skin? Or taking a DNA pill to perform the surgery without a single cut? Wait and watch; step one is a DNA computer. Step two is DNA Internet, and Step three is symbiotic thinking.

  • Humans should not develop a literal symbiotic relationship with their technological devices.

    Humans should not have a relationship with their technological devices. Machines are not people and it is not appropriate for people to pretend that they are. It is not healthy for adults to have imaginary friends. In this time of increased technology, people should make extra efforts to have real friendships.

  • Definitely no way

    I would not want to be literally attached to a technological device. Technology advances so rapidly it just wouldn't be feasible to begin with. I'd imagine there would have to be surgery involved. So, what ... you go have surgery every year to update the technology that is embedded into your body? No thank you!

  • Humans should not develop a literal symbiotic relationship with their technological devices.

    Humans should not develop a literal symbiotic relationship with their technological devices. The use of technology is increasing globally and some people live on their devices. Withdrawal can happen if there is an outage or if the Internet goes down for some reason. People should use their devices appropriately and smartly.

  • Literal Symbolic Relationship Impossible

    A literal symbolic relationship is impossible in every sense of the term. Something cannot be both literal and symbolic, so such a relationship can't exist between humans and technological devices. A person can either have a literal or a symbolic relationship with technology, but combining the two is simply asinine.

  • No, we need to maintain our humanness.

    Of course, even after one uses a computer or laptop for a little while it is common to bond with it on some level and feel like it is our friend. But we need to be cautious about too much bonding. We should still know where we end and our electronic devices begin.
