is the digital connectivity and technology making us 'smart' of dumb??

In this hyper connected world where each of us has presence in all social medias and over internet , over various gadgets, and over cloud... is this over-obsessed digital world filled with data bytes and presence limiting our sight to the world only limited by data bytes and we base our judgement of what is right and wrong on that???  such limited vision!

when the world has more shades to itself where not every thing can be put into bytes.. where world exists even beyond our eyes can see and sounds that our ears can hear..where our own human existence is just  about a blink of an eye as compared to creation of universe.. how is it and who are we to decide what is right and wrong ?? and for whom ?? .. where is the element of feeling .. of universal connectedness .. of super power above us .. ( not by any chance the big daddy - US or the king pins of the under world and terrorism ISIS and the likes..) and the plans of this world and our existence to be captured in digital world??

Ancient Indian wisdoms in form of 'religion' ( as such a guide to way of better life and living) relied on karma theory pinning down appropriately on our actions, wants and needs and of universal connectedness..  every change starts from self.. where does that digital world's imprints bring in changes to self journey and discovery of doing good karma of life beyond the span that we think of till 2100 or 3100..!! The more the self discovery journey , the digital world starts to present its clutter.. In the world we judge of what is right and wrong which has only yes or no or 0 and 1 as its outcomes.. we have stopped to analyse our complex human interactions to the world beyond.. while every thing is being filtered through the digital lens..

Our sense of touch is limited to computer keys or mobile keys..while our brains is powerful to process complex situations and people and surrounding which with the advent of ease of technology we are losing... how is it that we have lost the sense of wonder that there is a whole world existing beyond technologically driven world .. which we on the urge to spread are technological creations and the greed to buy ever new are also destroying.. the moment we lose our labour to ease of technology which in a way is a barrier to grab more.. our greed journey begins!

There is a whole world which human and its technology have been not able to create ! how could we not revere on it.. that if we destroy some thing we are not able to create how will we restore it ..and how will we survive without the other 'something' whose importance we have not realized!!

so is digital connectivity and technology making us 'smart' or 'dumb'?? Pondering over this!!
