We know that even raising this question may be considered heresy by some – or us luddites by others (!) – but has our modern obsession with communication just gone too far?
Has it transformed from a useful tool – our servant – making life so much easier, to an insatiable monster without us even noticing?
And are we so distracted that we don’t actually live our lives anymore?
Go out and about these days and it won’t take you long to see this modern obsession in action. People crossing the street while hypnotised by their phones. Texting or talking on the phone while driving cars, riding bikes or eating out at the restaurants. Really, doing almost anything you can think of with their phone glued to their hand or ear.
Completely oblivious to what they’re doing – or those around them.
