Humans are intrinsically social beings. Like Lev Vygotsky, another psychologist, said "We become ourselves through others". Both psychologists point out that social relationships are essential for our development and well-being. Considering the population density today and our social system, it shouldn't be a problem to meet that need for social companionship. Yet somehow loneliness has become one of the major societal issues of today. Is it a matter of one or the other, connectivity versus conviviality?Read the entire Next Nature is... series.

Just plug in your earphones and listen to the sweet sound of silence. There’s probably nothing better to hold talkative people off - without offending or looking antisocial - than simply acting as if you’re enjoying some music. It's a very effective 21st century solution to a 21st century problem. Where to get some quality time with yourself in the midst of our buzzing cities?

Even to the younger generation, who have never literally picked up or hung up the phone, the contemporary version sounds odd. But hanging up the phone really doesn’t make any sense today. Phrases like "rewinding the tape", "dialing the phone", or "cranking the engine" are called skeuonyms, expressions left over from a technology no longer used.Read the entire Next Nature is... series.

Anyone who has experienced a blackout is well aware of how dependent we are on electricity. Apparently the Internet cannot function without it! Which means that instant communication is out too. Although most clocks will keep ticking, time itself seems to lose meaning. Without electricity everything stops. The digital world is so thoroughly interwoven with the real world that we forget that software needs working hardware. For an unknown interval we live in a different world where only physical presence matters. As long as it is temporary, it might feel like a breath of fresh air.

Everyday many women wear this ‘mask’ of make-up to enhance their facial features or to hide their blemishes, either as a form of self-expression or to meet a beauty standard portrayed by advertising and popular culture.
