Guess me if you can

Voice recognition and mind reading obviate the need to type and search.

Your smartphone is your second brain, one that’s already ahead of your next thought.

As the soon as the phone has enough predictive information, it’ll completely dominate our mind. We’ll inevitably let it and Google’s algorithm decide our fate.

Are we really going to let phones think for us, kind of like we’ve really been doing for decades on calculators?

Shortcuts kill brain cells, even if we get a hit of dopamine from saving time and doing something pleasurable instead.

Thinking is painful. We only relieve the stressed mind when we progress and reach some type of certainty.

Predictive search doesn’t leave open the possibility of forgetfulness and randomness that lead to remarkable discoveries.

Automation darkens the brain. We become the machines, lemmings of starved emotion.
