Machines: Besides Ease Lies A Threat

Stephen Hawking has warned “Artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race”
Life is the name of struggle till death, Life doesn’t have any meaning but it is an opportunity to create its meaning and this cant be done in a luxurious & easefull state. To live the life in its original form we have to utilize our potential to get the work done perfectly. We have to act fully to manifest our innate potentials and talents. The day the life becomes static our physics, chemistry and psychology gets disturbed accordingly. The life of comfortness and eliteness is a death in a philosophical sense and it’s not a good life at all. Today in this modern and competent era where we are technically evolved and day by day a new ease in the form of machines are being invented which makes the human life more easeful and static. The online world is the major example of ceasing the motor actions and making the life static. On the one side we are being benefitted by these novel innovations and at the same time it affects our lives in abstract, we cant deny that other side of a coin, we have to cherish the taste of both the sides. We have to face the adversities too. A machine simple an instruement that reduces human effort, the purpose of which is to save the time and in the less time to get the more productivity and accuracy. But we have relied onto the machines to such a level that without these life now seems immpossible. Today as observed a man feels ashamed and pessimistic of working without a machine. The efforts are being made by every conscience-being to get the every type of device install in the residential place either to challenge the growing competition or to get the ease, but in both the senses the real life is being denied. The real life is a life full of peace and ecstasy which is rarely found. The time is not so far when we will forget our abilities and the prophency of hawking will turn into reality. The problem is not with the growing inventions, every invention is a blessing but the problem arises from the human attitude,who couldn’t make proper use of it. The human brain is where from all the mess onsets, peace is the absence of a brain. The human mind is in the contineous process of evolution and it has the ability to face the challenges of life, but sometimes we have to refrains from doing the things we couldn’t do, because human life is a limited edition as like we cant reach to the skies not because of any religious belief but, because of logical reason that the gravitational forces and mysteries of universe will not allow us to reach there, still if a person insists to play a natural game he/she has to say goodbye to his precious life. When the human mind crosses the limits and boundaries he has to face the adversities. Similarly with the use of machines the man has trespassed which gave rise to the growing health problem and the various life related problems like the social problems, economic problems, cultural problems among them the main two problems which we face today are the health and economic problems.
A single machine replaces many to hundreds of labourers leaving them jobless, which creates the chaos & the disorder among the societies as it triggers unemployment and need at the same time gives rise to social evils like robbery, narcotic trade, human trafficking, prostitution and much more. The capitals on the other hand gets their income doubled, tripled or quadrupled and the lower classes or marginalised societies gets continuously exploited.
Health has been really called the wealth and health in reality is a wealth. As if a person is physically and mentally sound he/she can go to any level of achievement in life and can achieve any kind of speciality to attract the money. But a withered and unsounded person can’t explore much and his/her creativity and ability gets supressed under this emaciated body and backwardness gets dominated upto him. The well and balanced physique is possible only when the body remains active and in movement. The more the blood supply the nutrients in the body gets supplied to the whole body which help in the development of whole body parts and also protects the body from obesity and cholestrol; which leads to heart and kidney failures. Relying on the machines makes us prone to health diseases like depression, obesity, hypertension, visual loss, as the comfortness ceases our body movements and blood circulation which results in the decomposition of fats in veins which ultimately bursts our veins. That’s why we are facing the loss of young ones daily because of heart-attacks. Also, the use of machines opens the gates of tragic it causes injuries,accidents,loss of body parts and even death. Machines tramples our conscience and boosts our pride and arrogance.
As said by Iqbal: Hai Dil Ke Liye Moat Machinoun Ki Hakumat
Ehsaas- I- Murawat Ko Kucha; Dete Hai Alaat
The problem that arises in our societies because of dominance of machines is the problem of unemployment, it sounds silly but it really does exist. The economy is now under the grip of capitalists and the labourers are being replace. A single machine replaces many to hundreds of labourers leaving them jobless, which creates the chaos & the disorder among the societies as it triggers unemployment and need at the same time gives rise to social evils like robbery, narcotic trade, human trafficking, prostitution and much more. The capitals on the other hand gets their income doubled, tripled or quadrupled and the lower classes or marginalised societies gets continuously exploited.
