Mike and Marty discuss the role of technology in our pursuit of happiness. They agree that while technology can enhance our path to happiness, deriving happiness solely from technology is not sustainable. They caution against becoming too dependent on technology and emphasize the importance of genuine human connection.
- Technology should shorten the path to happiness, but deriving happiness solely from technology is not sustainable.
- Overindulging in technology, such as playing video games all day, may not lead to increased happiness.
- Personal identity should not be tied up in technology; it should be separate and authentic.
- Genuine human connection is essential for happiness and should not be replaced by technology.
- “I think it should play any role. That shortens the path to your happiness. Right. But you shouldn’t be deriving happiness from the technology.”
- “If I’m playing video games all day every day, that’s not going to help me be happier necessarily.”
- “We don’t want our personal identity to be tied up in technology. We want us to be that way.”
