It is very strange to see the parks and the gardens crowded with Pokemon Go players. Sometimes they do talk to each other though but most of the times it is a silent affair.
The audience is quite diverse, but mostly it is young boys. And sometimes it is young mothers with kids.
Earlier, while travelling in a local transport it was always the helpers rather women folk enjoying candy crush. These visuals were so common that I was afraid that I might get some cavities in my mouth 🙂 Now there is addition of pokemon players or whatsapp lovers or facebookers.
The world that we are transitioning into seems to be a lonely place. Although I am not a talkative person, I shudder at the thought that soon there will be digital interfaces to interact with.
The other day when I was travelling in a Tesla the huge interactive screen excited me, but I was happy to talk to a human driver. After a couple of years a driver would be a luxury or a liability. (And when I mention Tesla I cannot stop thinking about Mars and when I visualise life on Mars I cannot stop thinking about Interstellar.)
I fear that the transition from human to semi automatic to fully automated is happening too fast. For various reasons we are getting pulled into it and I am very nervous.
I shudder that the movie “Her’ will become a reality and I will have digital daughter-in-law and grand children if that would be possible at that time.
I am experiencing a sense of urgency, fear and pressure to broad this digital bandwagon or get left at the outdated platform.
I just want to hang on and go slow.
