Hooked on to the Internet?

Recommended Posts

Is the internet an extension of our nervous system? Is addiction to the internet a reflection of an underlying nervous disorder?

Is it a symptom of social anxiety? And will it really replace real socialization? Can a chat bot replace a mentor or benefactor?

What does the future presage? (as the internet grows will it become a social anathema like obesity?).

 

Please express your views.

 

Thanks in advance.

Is the internet an extension of our nervous system?

YES, in the sense that we can gather information from it, elaborate it and re-transmit it

 

Is addiction to the internet a reflection of an underlying nervous disorder?

NO, but most addictions are bad

 

Is it a symptom of social anxiety?

NO lthough some people prefer the anonymity

 

And will it really replace real socialization?

YES, in great part, but not fully

 

Can a chat bot replace a mentor or benefactor?

NO, I don't think this will happen in the forseeable future

 

What does the future presage? (as the internet grows will it become a social anathema like obesity?).
