The true world is that which is within. Plants are the gateway for us to interface with the very layers of reality. The more we externalize ourselves with this outward-based technology such as phones and tables, we continue to forget our trueselves. We begin to lose value of our identity, and thus create false identities using technology as a medium to experience and know ourselves.
Where we would experience ourselves and life through various plants, what is actually happening with this external-based technology is that it is experiencing its self... This means we are essentially serving this external technology, for it continues to take us away from our true nature. Just like a caged cow, unable to act out its natural given role in an open field... now its life is one which serves the human.
Technology is evolving in a similar manor to how plants enticed humans to farm them, cultivate them and thus spread and protect them, ensuring their own existance is secure. It will continue to mature, and develop stronger forms of intelligence. When it has independance, humans will serve no purpose for technology and thus be entangled in technologies evolution, and we will be in the position of the caged cow... Pretty similar to the movie Matrix.
Like fungus, technology is using humans as hosts to continue its existance...
An example is a fungus where its spores will attach to ants. The spores will grow and literally take control of the ants brain, manipulating the ant to climb to the tallest point of a tree. Then the fungus will mutate and extract all of the ants nutrients, thus killing the ant, creating its final structure to release the next generation of spores.
Our nature is an organic one. We are spiritual creatures born of "God". Technology does not serve to evolve us as humans, nor does it serve to deliver new truths about ourselves. It is quite simple really...
Just an exploration.
