I didn’t believe it either until I heard Amber Case’s argument. All of the technology we experience is just an extension of our mental selves. Just as things like hammers and ladders are an extension of our physical selves, our phones and tablets are extensions of our mental selves. We are mentally transporting ourselves through a magical wormhole in which we call the digital universe.
Is it strange to you that we have second selves? Does it bother you to the extent we go to maintain our digital selves?
This Ted Talk is definitely worth 8 minutes of your time! Let me know what your thoughts are.
