FMTV - Offline Is The New Luxury

Offline Is The New Luxury

Runtime: 40m 47s | Release date: 2016

We are connected to the internet even in our bedrooms. It’s the ambition of companies like Google and Facebook to connect the entire world, so that we can be online all the time and everywhere. This month, Google will send balloons up into the skies over Sri Lanka to provide the island state with free Wi-Fi. On the ground, more and more devices communicate through the so-called Internet-of-Things. We are going to be ‘glass citizens’ in a transparent house, connected for life to a wireless intravenous drip and traced anywhere via our smartphones. What does it mean, this shift to 100 percent connect-ability of the entire planet? A small but growing group of people is saying goodbye to lifetime connect-ability. They are researching ways to keep control. What can we learn from them about life in the digital era?

We must really become aware of the damage the EMF is actually causing on ours cells.

EMF's is making us sick. Not just the addiction. but also very much damage to us. You will find out when you begin to seek away from it.

Secrets that's no longer secret. Data are collected all the time. You're under surveillance 24/7.

Perhaps.. we need to create a 'OFFLINE' day. I plan to start with myself and then my family. Frequency increases maybe from once a month to weekly

Whilst, I love technology for the tool, that is. Being mindful, it is a tool, to be mastered, and not allowing it, to be the master of myself. The idea was to enhance our lives, not disconnect from them. Wonderful for many things, so enjoyed this very pertinent video. Thank you.
