What we seek or should be seeking is balance. These machines and conveniences are meant to add to our lives and not take it over. I now have the computer and allot time for it. I have a whole life outside of the activities online. Balance. I do not have a cell phone. I use my voice mail and online abilities. Cell phones are too expensive compared to my land line. Also no cell tower out here where I live. My house is solar and wind powered so we live within nature and that causes us to pause at times. That is good for us. Gardening is still a big part of our life and we exercise and feed ourselves and others. Again stiving for that balance. Would suggest all who can to try and reach for balance in whatever way in your life. Good luck.

In my opinion it is a necessary evil of modern time , but avoidable . It is an evil because it adds to the mental distance between people , which already in a bad shape, too stretched .Yet we must admit its necessity . So, the adviceable path is to compel ourselves to earmark some slot of time for socialisation .We should strive to keep the interpersonal relationship .this will save us from being too mechanical . Because , human being , irrespective of their lifestyle , feel any emotion by their mind which needs other's mind to talk to .
