Honors Conference Discussion

April 6, 2011

Thesis Topic:

The Side Effects of Technology: Obsession, Corruption and Degradation of the Human species

Focus:

Exploring the forbidden and unnatural and its effects to society

I would like to explore the negative effect of technology on its users and to society.  It can desensitize or detach individuals from society and it can damage a society. There is a selfishness involved with using technology. Whether it is simply to gain an advantage over others or doing something forbidden something unnatural is taking place.  Technology which involves mechanism is seen everywhere but in some instances it can be used in the wrong manner or with the intention of an individual.  Instead of benefitting an entire community technology can be contrived by one user and used in the wrong manner.  It can be used with negative intention to pursue desires of an individual. Mankind can benefit from the rise and advancement of machines, but what happens when machines take on mankind’s characteristics or even surpass it?

Technology brings about advancement and progression, but not without side effects. There are side effects of technology which include but are not limited to: the impact of obsession, abuse of power, the misuse of power, corruption, and the degradation of the human species.  Technology involves mechanism and is seen everywhere throughout history, but in some instances technology can be used in the wrong manner or with the selfish intentions.  It can have unforeseen consequences to both the creator, the created, and even the entire human race.

Works of discussion:

The Tempest, Frankenstein, The Matrix, and A.I.
