The science of self-awareness is nothing new, but what has been new is the use of technology to achieve it. The advent of smartphones has made it easier than ever to communicate with yourself. I’ve found that it can be a bit unnerving to have someone taking the time to read your mind and see what you are thinking and feeling.
The science of self-awareness is even more unnerving because it’s quite possible that you are not aware of it. You may say, “I wouldn’t think of doing that, because that would be stupid”, but you may not recognize that that is what your mind is doing.
Technology, in general, has caused society to change. We no longer have to make it go back to the stone age, if that is possible. You can be more aware and conscious of your own actions and actions of others. Technology also allows us to think that we are more intelligent than we actually are, and at the same time we can feel more and more like a stupid animal. We can become increasingly more self-aware.
Technology has changed how we think. It has caused society to change. Humans have become more aware of their own emotions and emotions of others. We have a more conscious awareness of our own actions, and we can feel more and more like a stupid animal. We can become increasingly more self-aware.
This could actually be an advantage for technology itself, because it could prevent us from feeling as stupid as we do because we know how to feel. We could feel less self-conscious and more self-aware. But we also recognize that our self-awareness is limited. We can feel as self-aware as we are because we can experience ourselves as feeling. But if we feel our feelings as stupid and senseless, then we will no longer feel as smart as we think we do.
What is interesting here is that we can feel as smart as we think we do, but we won’t be as smart as we think we are. We could use this to our advantage, as there are still those who believe that the reason we’re stupid is because we’re not smart enough.
We also recognize that technology itself also creates and maintains our self-awareness, which is why we like being able to access the internet. We can be as technology-aware as we want to be, but we are still capable of feeling our technology-self as stupid as we think we are. It’s amazing how different life is when you can use your technology-self like a weapon.
We can use our technology-self to our advantage because we can be as technology-aware as we want to be. But at the same time, we are still just as dumb as we think we are. We can take our technology-self and turn it against itself and it can still turn against us. Which is why we can never be as smart as we think we are. Because we have no idea why we are so smart.
Technology-self is a good example of our tendency to confuse intelligence and knowledge in equal measure. Because our technology-self does not know why it is so intelligent, it can’t control it. And because we don’t really know why we are such smarts, we can’t change our technology-self. But we can control our way of knowing and our way of using it.
Smart is the technical term for knowing something and using it. It is a good example of how we can use technology to control our own behavior.
