Society and Lifestyle
So, "What is good living and what is proper living?"
David Adebimpe, 2006
One of the core reasons for the founding of Π is to do some
good in the world. Yes, technology is can be enabling, but if all
of its rudiments are not properly understood before being adopted
for consumer use, it can easily become a negative determinant of
our social outcome or even existence.
A typical example can be found in old days of when Rome was the
cradle of civilization. Romans were technologically advanced to
discover plumbing, which took care of a lot of public health
issues; however, they made the pipes out of lead. So, what
happened? People who had plumbing started dying of either dementia
or lead poisoning…but the irony is that you had to be rich enough
to afford the plumbing that will eventually bring death to you and
your family! The grater impact of this to Rome was that all those
that could afford being rich, the philosophers, businessmen,
politicians, noblemen, clergy, all died off, changing the mental
demographics of Rome, and the beginning of its fall.
Even in the present day, some of our "technological" advancements
have led to the adoption of lifestyle and social trends that are
more of a detriment to our living that an advantage. we know that
there are some technologies and societal norms and lifestyles that
have already been adopted that drastically affect our health,
while some other measure s are drastically affecting the existence
of other earthlings.
The trend these days is for "a few" to keep "a-many" in the dark.
Most consumers of technology are blissfully stupid, in awe but at
the mercy of the technology or lifestyle that they have been sold.
Graced with an insight endowed through our collective, and with a
fervent desire for the greater good, Π pitches expertise towards
solving societal aspects that leads to greater impacts in our
quality of life and redresses our understanding or our role within
the broader context of the planet that we inhabit. At the moment,
certain elements such as nutritional habits, social education and
welfare, the search for alternative medicines and the effects of
technology such as electromagnetic radiation and
pharmaceuticalization on human beings, will all be investigated,
and findings will be packaged into consumables that really benefit
society or into an appropriate communiqué that will lead to an
increased enlightenment of the average consumer.
Watch out for more developments in this area very soon...
