Free Chapter of the MINDSET ZONE Book

“It is an odd reality of being human that we are always changing, yet we dislike change. Especially too much, too fast.”

-Giles Crouch | Digital Anthropologist

In this episode, host Ana Melikian explores the paradox of human evolution amidst technological advancement, with a focus on identity shift in the digital era. Drawing insights from an article by digital anthropologist Giles Crouch, Ana discusses the long history of technology's role in human identity, from the Stone Age to modern smart devices, and the psychological effects of rapid technological change.

She highlights the tension between the human need for stability and the inevitable march of technological progress, particularly in the face of AI disruption. Ana uses the metaphor of navigating a river to describe the pursuit of mental wellness, balancing between rigidity and constant change.

She emphasizes the importance of proactively adapting to these changes to enhance humanity and addresses the collective challenge of navigating these transitions as a community. The episode calls for engaging in conversations to co-create a hopeful future, leveraging AI advancements in a human-centered manner.
