"Can Technology Be Enlightened?" with Francesca Ferrando
This workshop will be an open platform to reflect on future evolution by addressing questions such as: Can technology be enlightened? Can robots and “avatars” be prophets? Focus will be on the rise of the internet and the current social mantra, “I do not know, but Google does,” instead of the old mantra, “Only God knows.” In future theologies, the notion of “God” may even lose any human features. Through experiential, meditative exercises, participants will explore the following ideas: the enlightenment of technology, the interconnection of existence, and how to achieve a post-dualistic praxis in relation to technology, which may enhance one’s daily life.
