Deepak Chopra explains why social media is ultimately for social good. His rules on how to stay centered in the age of technology.
I think that it’s the evolution in a way of human consciousness. What are social networks? They are the extensions of our mind. Right now, you and I are influencing each other’s neural networks because of our conversation, through the flow of info and energy. And when this info is put on a social network, it influences the minds, and therefore, the neural networks of everyone participating. So unbeknownst to us, society is moving in the direction of a planetary mind through the social networks.
