A sneak peak at the presentation of Robert Weiss at The National Conference on Addiction Disorders in Denver, CO.  

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. With the passing of each nanosecond, the digital systems we ourselves created continue to evoke radical, drastic and unalterable changes to who we are as human beings, are altering our very understanding of what defines a relationship!  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 intimacy when sex can be virtual? What is infidelity? What is the meaning of ‘friendship’ and community today? The questions are endless but how you answer them will likely depend … on your age.
