Thing that humans creates things like AR porn is a step forward or step back in evolution of human beings

There’s always a big debate raging around technology. Is it a virtue or a vice? Innovations today, are they actually helping humans evolve or rather paralysing them by making things more convenient. So, are new technologies like AR porn helpful or harmful human evolution? Let’s explore this debate.

I’ll look at this from two different aspects – how human evolution takes place and the use of technology. First, let’s understand the level of technology currently available. Right now, we have self-driving cars, robotics-managed warehouses and manufacturing and augmented reality. These are only some of the examples to showcase the level of technological innovation currently afoot.

Technology itself is based on how well is increases convenience for people. It’s built on the premise of providing a better solution. However, sometimes there isn’t a problem to begin with. But the potential convenience it provides, allows it to be accepted by the populace. But if we are using technology based on how convenient it’s making our lives, have we ever considered the contrary?

For example, did we really lose touch with our friends before Facebook? Was photography dull before Instagram? If we didn’t, then has these applications made us more addicted to social media or are we just too big a sucker for convenience? Why call someone when you can ping them on Whatsapp? Why go out for a game of footie when you can just play FIFA on PlayStation?

These questions reveal a significant trait. We are not only suckers for ease-of-use but we are lazy. That’s why instead of using technology for a particular purpose, we look towards it as a one-size-fits-all solution. As a result, it isn’t the use of technology that has reduced inter-personal communications or decreased the level of physical activity and fitness among kids. Instead, it’s our tendency to be overly dependent on anything. As a result, technology might work as a facilitator but certainly isn’t solely responsible.

Now, let’s try and see how human evolution has taken place historically. The biggest strides by the human race has always been prefaced by failures. Starting from the industrial revolution, the first flight, atom bomb, the space race and so on. There has always been failures and duds before we came up with something successful. It stands to reason as well. Without experimenting and exploring, it isn’t possible to build something credible. Similarly, biological evolution has also been built upon failures. For example, the first bipeds were forced to learn how to stand to outsmart predators. Cold weather animals grow thick coats to save them from low temperatures. Obviously, they didn’t suddenly end up in Siberia thought to grow thick coats of fur.

Similarly, every story of evolution is built upon overcoming shortcomings. As a result, if we are at all to evolve, is it too bad if we fail? Is it really harmful if we try new things and discover our shortcomings. Looking at it from my POV, the value and benefits of technology is dependent on the user. As a result, even if the human race falters at some point, it will only help us evolve further.
