(Text of Professor Valdemir Mota de Menezes, the Scribe)
The new world that formed in front of our generation has brought substantial changes so that I come to consider that this new kind of life, no longer a natural human life to be an artificial life. I have much to praise, but also much to criticize.
The artificial nature should only complement and not replace it. Kids today are creating "virtual pets" losing touch with nature. Few people today can say they planted a tree and that has accompanied its development. Nobody has time and space, which is justified. Everything is mediate and change easily, not only consumer goods, but people around us have become occasional. Many friendships are fleeting and without major affective bonds. Amid this change, see the online courses.
Teachers do not personally know the students, students do not personally know the teacher and other students. At work, many people already receiving orders and fulfill orders from the boss, via virtual. The overuse of the computer for some people has kept them "preached" in the chair for hours. People are studying virtually working virtually, having fun with games and movie watching, all online.
