“Today we come across an individual who behaves like an automaton, who does not know or understand himself, and the only person that he knows is the person that he is supposed to be, whose meaningless chatter has replaced communicative speech, whose synthetic smile has replace genuine laughter, and whose sense of dull despair has taken the place of genuine pain. Two statements may be said concerning this individual. One is that he suffers from defects of spontaneity and individuality, which may seem to be incurable. At the same time it may be said of him he does not differ essentially from the millions of the rest of us who walk upon this earth.” -Erich Fromm

The industrial age brought with it a host a changes in the world that got carried over to the information age. Man has become industrialize - a machine that is paid to do not to think. This problem is made even worse since as soon as he arrives home he entertains himself, in an attempt to forget his workday, until he goes to sleep - leaving little room for the brain to, again, think.

"Human beings will not change unless the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of changing." -Anthony Robins

Get control over your thoughts - it's time to change and actually think!
