|Wow, normally there are pictures that tell a million words, but I've never seen a tiny story mean something big. Most people today are unconscious of how technology is taking our lives, but not in the normal perspective. Yeah, we advance from technology, going to space, finding out new stuff like the sentient beings we are. But now, the younger generation(especially mine) use technology to laze around, having fun without actual activities. We are supposed to have hours of physical activities every day, but technology is killing off these activities. A very common example include lifts/elevators. It takes away the activity of going up the stairs/uphills, which is a very good way to train your legs and stamina. This is beginning to affect our kind biologically.
We started as people who hunt and gather for food, build shelters ourselves, make fire out of rocks, but now instead of using our body, we use our minds, which really does show our sentience, but the body must also be considered something to train too. Without a healthy body, we will be vulnerable without technology. A truly strong and independent race should not need technology for simple everyday actions. We are evolving our minds, but devolving our bodies.
Well that's my thought, while for my review:
Like I said in the first paragraph, this is a very meaningful short story. But to make it better, I suggest next time you should add an emotional feeling to it. It strikes our minds and thoughts, but the message doesn't really go to the heart.
For a more minor problem, making humans 2 feet tall in the story seems kinda exaggerated so next time, ease it up on like 4 feet.
That's all for me! Have a nice day!
