智能手机有碍人类进步

CONTENT:
"So, when people think: 'I'm rushing around to get things done,' it's almost like, biologically, they're rushing around just as if they were escaping from a predator. That's the part of the brain that's active. But nobody can run fast enough to escape their own worries."
Mindfulness, on the other hand, "cultivates our ability to do things knowing that we're doing them". In other words, we become aware that we're aware. It's an incredibly important tool – and one that we can't farm out to technology.
There are some who believe the increasing power of big data (using powerful computers to sift through and find patterns in massive amounts of information) is going to rival the human consciousness at some point. But there's also growing scepticism about how effective big data is at solving problems.

因此,人们那种认为自己为求事成而疲于奔命的心理。若从生物学角度上来讲,则与视己为猎物而忙于逃离追捕的想法无甚差别。而此种思维则是大脑里最为活跃的一部分。但是任何人也无法摆脱麻烦的困扰而独善其身。
另一方面,这种警觉却可以提升我们的认知力,使我们清楚所做为何事。换言之,即我们明白自己在干什么。这种“工具”着实令人难以置信且分量十足,即便依附科技也无法与之相较。
随着大数据影响力与日俱增(运用功能强大的电脑可从茫茫信息间加以甄选鉴别。),一些人认为就某些方面而言,大数据甚至可以与人类意识相较。但就其解决问题的效能而言,亦颇有质疑之声。
