Abstract
This focused multimedia and didactic presentation is organized as a non-judgemental, multi-generational and human evolutionary overview of the effect of technology and digital media on the most intimate parts of human existence (dating, mating, sexuality, intimacy, relationship). Its focus is to generate awareness and empathy toward encouraging behavioural health agencies and clinicians to provide the most useful work with these rapidly changing technological times as our background. One no longer needs to look to the heavens to search for signs of intelligent life, because we are not alone anymore. Human beings are in a rapidly escalating, increasingly integrated and evolutionary relationship with our own technology. As each nanosecond passes, the digital systems we ourselves created continue to evoke radical and drastic changes to who we are as human beings, altering in fact-our very understanding of what defines reality . In single generation- eons-old patterns of human social interaction both planted in our DNA and learned via our culture- have changed forever. Ask yourself: in the digital age, what is a relationship Do you have to meet someone in person to really know or even love them What is sex, when sex can be virtual What is infidelity What is a friend What is community...The questions are endless and how you answer them will likely depend on how old you are.
