Technology helps to extend human capacities. This is useful but it can come with a price; atrophy in natural capacity. For example, say you had a robotic suit that walks for you. You simply put the robot suit on, and it can walk all day long. This can extend our ability to walk, however, the muscles, normally used for walking will atrophy, since they don't have to work very much. If the suit was to fail, people would be crawling, having been make weaker, by the suit. The prosthesis makes us appear to be more on the surface, while making us less, underneath.
If you look at smart phones, most 2-3 year olds can operate these like a pro. It looks very modern and sophisticated on the surface, but in reality it only requires the brain power of a small child to do this. The result is even dumb people can look smart on a smart phone; surface illusion. This is useful. However, since this does not require much in the way of brain power, the minds of smart people can atrophy, to that of a child. If you take away the phone of an adult; lost or broken, there is a panic attack, since one is only able to crawl without it.
In my opinion, we should have a two path education, where we take advantage of technology to extend humans. But we also teach the old fashion skills so the brain and body is not going backwards; 2-3 years old. Some days you can wear and practice with the robotic suit; run the marathon, and on the next day you take off th suit and run a 10K loop the old fashion way. This way the outside and inside grow together.
If the outside grows, while the inside shrinks, even dumb machines will appear smarter to atrophied morons. The worst walking robot suit can appear state of the art if all you can do is crawl. Cultures reach the tipping point, to soon, leading to disaster. If we have dumb machines leading even dumber and dependent humans, this is not optimized. If the inside grows, we will expect more from the machines before we give up control.
