Do you remember when you didn’t have a cell phone or even more importantly now a handheld digital device?
There may be a few hold outs who still don’t have one. There may be an even larger group who don’t remember when because they have always had one.
This article isn’t about how we have all practically allowed this device, with it’s high initial cost and then the monthly charges plus any additional subscriptions and services, to become a mandatory and essential budget item automatically pulled from our accounts or charged to us.
This discussion or thought provoking article is about our human evolution and how may our daily use of these handheld digital devices impact change to all of us.
It may have started already.
Think about your specific day.
You wake up and what is the first thing you do? Odds are before anything else – you look at your cell phone.
It may be a quick glance to check the time or to stop the alarm on it.
If you created a quick list of everything you do in the next two hours with your handheld digital device, how many specific items would there be on that list?
There is no need for a radio to hear about the weather or the traffic report as you may hear that familiar broadcast on your device. The same is true for the news around the globe or in your home town.
Want to hear some music, just ask your device to play it.
Next think about where do you keep your device through out the day?
Do you hold it most of the time?
Do you keep if in your pocket?
Do you place it in a bag you carry with you?
How many different dings, pings, chimes or music do you have set on your device to alert you of types of notifications coming to you?
Come on now you at least have one for a new text, a call, a voicemail and what else?
So now my question for you to consider is this – as these devices are updated and continually offer to do more things with us, and for us, how will we as humans evolve? Will our ears begin to change their shape? Will our hearing abilities change?
None of this will happen overnight, however, don’t assume it will never happen.
Early humans body shapes evolved as they moved to different environments to help them survive hot and cold climates for example. Their bodies adapted for very active lifestyles. In comparison to today, their bones were thicker and stronger.
So what will the human body evolve to as we now hold onto and use our digital handheld devices more and more for everything in our lives?
