Thinking about Technology

“Everything is a functioning. That is precisely what is demanded, that everything functions, that the functioning propels everything more and more toward further functioning, and that technicity increasingly dislodges
man and uproots him from the earth.  We do not need atomic bombs at all   [to uproot us]  the uprooting of man is already here. All our relationships have become merely technical ones. It is no longer upon an earth that man lives today.”    ―Martin Heidegger. Der Spiegel Interview (1966)
