AI or happiness: Which will we choose?

– Critical crossroads: Choose deep tech reliance or a new direction.

– Technology harms happiness, especially affecting young people's connections.

– Mental health crisis acknowledged, yet we intensify AI integration.

– Technology, driven by Silicon Valley, impedes overall well-being.

– Pursuit of "progress" defined by efficiency, productivity, and profit.

– Limited benefits of progress: Power and rewards for a select few.

– Proposal: Prioritize happiness and well-being as societal goals.

– Challenge societal definition of progress; focus on living experiences.

– Despite harm, society accelerates tech advancements without reflection.
