We are in a state of permanent connection and this is terribly interesting and fascinating. It is a kind of re-edition of the myth of Zeus Panopticon who knew at all times where he was in the world, but it has a great problem within itself which poses a serious danger: where our connection power begins, a danger to our individual freedom begins too. Today with mobile technology you can control anyone, know who he is talking about, where he is, how he moves. Victor Hugo comes to my mind who called “grave” the eye of God, from which Cain the great sinner could not escape. Here it is the great danger inherent in technology, the creation of a great eye that bury man and his creativity under his control. As Zeus told Narcissus, "beware of yourself!", this phrase sounds good at this stage of human history.
