    The very thing I’m trying to say.

    I love how we think the same. :)

    Oh, don’t worry! I know you didn’t mean to degrade people’s intelligence. It’s just that I found your comment really interesting, it made me think of starting this discussion that’s why I quoted you. :)

    I’m glad about that! :)

    You’re right! Maybe we need more time to acclimate to the technological advances. It’s just too fast, everyday there’s something new.

    I think it’s easier for young people: a 3 year old is now used to playing on ipads. They learn really fast (sometimes without any help) how to use it, while some older people (my grandparents for example) are still surprised by everything humans managed to invent and struggle with touch screens.

    Yes, and it’s sometimes astonishing to know how many inventions make the news just over one night.

    Exactly, I completely agree with you there. That makes me envy those 3 year old’s who already have ipads and they’ll be way more tech savvy than me by the time they’re my age lol. But, I can’t complain as I’m enjoying my share. :)

    That made me think, do we need to “stretch ourselves to our limits.” ? Do we need something if our life doesn’t depend on it anymore?
    I’m not sure, I’ll say yes just because I’m really curious to see how far we can go, but that is probably easier said than done. ;)

    I think we associate a lot of things in our lives with our memories, which do play a role in our learning. I for one would certainly like to stretch my memory, possibly develop a photographic memory which would make life a lot easier.
    I would like to know the limits to our memory. Definitely. ;)
    Wonder if we could find test subjects here who’d be willing to take the challenge! :D

    I couldn’t have said it better myself! :)

    I’m glad you agree. But I wouldn’t want to pass on the opportunity to meet my online friends in person. :)
