In STS, we were assigned three different articles and watch, where we saw how technology changed our reality. When I read the Relive Box it made me really think how difficult it is for us to not use any sorts of technology in our daily lives. The Relive Box is a technology that does not exist now, however, we have something similar, our phones. Our phones connect us to everyone and to everything. This technology is something that can make time speed up and it can make us forget our surroundings. So when I read the Relive Box I couldn’t help but to compare it to our phones, where we can access social media to check on exes to see how they are doing. They even made an app to show what happened on this day in our lives three years ago. It’s as if we created something to make us time travelers and if you have this in the palm of your hand, do you really want to live in reality? We’ve created our own hell, where we can see our once happy moments and our painful ones as well. It’s as if this one dimension is not enough and we choose our own suffering.
This was successfully created by reconsidering and challenging the established conventions of 'perspective '. Illustrated through 'relativity ', artists combined visual consideration and memory into a concentrated 'still ' which they felt best documented the age in an abstract form, but which was wholly all the more realistic. This form was not only retained for art but stretched into prominent literature; several authors best deployed
He goes on to compare today’s advancements to those of past inventions, such as the printing press and stopwatch. “When the mechanical clock arrived, people began to think that their brains operated like clockwork…nowadays people prefer to think that they are like computers.” (514)
“According to 2014 data from Pew Research, 90 percent of American adults carry a mobile phone and more than 58 percent of people carry smartphones that offer not only voice and text communication, but also internet, email, and social media access.” Mobile Devices Are Detrimental to Personal Relationships from the point of view of Mobile Devices on Personal Relationships. Whether it is checking your phone at the dinner table, or googling a math question, technology becomes a world, easy to be sucked into. Every day we turn to technology to fix our problems or to ease our mind, but why are we so obsessed with such a time sucking thing? It is safe to say, as a society we rely too much on technology because we are too obsessed with
However, they must balance this imaginative outlook with the reality that scientists connect to, so that their information is reliable. So, while describing history, a historian has the ability to extend information in an artistic manner, but they must also stay within the constraints of actuality. I agree with his statement in the way that he compared the two opposing subjects, but I would not typically think of arts and sciences having a connection through history.
As this century fades into the past it is worth remembering that its course--in contrast to earlier times--has been chronicled by a visual narrative that relies on the attraction of photographs as means of storing
Time travel has been debated for years by philosophers and non-philosophers alike. While the possibility of time travel is intriguing and alluring, I do not believe its portrayal in today’s media is plausible. In this paper, I will argue that time travel, particularly back in time, is not possible in our current world and universe.
In this paper I will be discussing the concept of the paradox, examples from Zeno and McTaggart, and how modern science has potential solved the paradox put forth by McTaggart. Both of these paradoxes have a enormous repercussion on how objective fact about the world can be understood. I claim that McTaggart’s theory of time can be solved by modern physics as Einstein’s theory of relativity makes time a relative factor in how time is understood.
The primary use of a telescope is so that it may be used to see items in the distance. However, X.J Kennedy manages to mold it into a blinder, forcing us to focus on nothing but the future. Opening with, “Suppose your life a folded telescope/ Durationless, collapsed in just a flash” (1-2). The telescope exemplifies a seemingly short passage of time. Our aim in life is to reach for that one goal we see in the distance. And
Where would we be without technology? The number of things that we are now capable of doing is infinite because of the technology we have access to. This technology is also changing the way we think, write and concentrate. Cell/ smart phones along with texting and being able to Google practically everything have all played a role in the way we think and do things in today’s society.
