Are we then to go back to the days of the primitive caveman, the stone age! Our counter-question has been: Is the 24-hour cyber society created in the sci-tech era more natural, organic and humane than the bygone ages? Let us listen attentively to these philosophical truths of Swami Vivekananda uttered in London during the fall of 1896:

" As we increase our power to be happy, we also increase our power to suffer; and sometimes I am inclined to think that if we increase our power to become happy in arithmetical progression, we shall increase, on the other hand, our power to become miserable in geometrical progression. We who are progressing know that the more we progress, the more avenues are opened to pain as well as pleasure. And this is Maya.

- Swami Vivekananda
