How will todays's electronic crazed kids turn out?

I have not seen the movie AVATAR in 3-D, but a thought suddenly occured to me: How would a child from some remote African village, one who has never seen a movie react to wearing special glasses and watching AVATAR in 3-D? Would they think the characters were real? Would they run out of the movie theatre screaming? Or would they simply get hooked like most teenagers since the movie surpassed the $1 billion mark.

What are your thoughts on that?

My father lived in Nigeria for over seventeen years and mentioned his visit to a remote African village where the kids had never seen a white man. A mother picked up her three-year-old son who thought my father was a ghost and actually peed on his mom's skirt from fright. Flash forward to the developed world, with all of our electronic devices and gizmos, i-phones, the new Nexus-One phone, Kindles and the i-Slate, a combination of a Kindle and a laptop (so I was told), and all the computer simulation games, especially war games. This has to impact our kids today and in the future. What are human relationships going to be like in 50, 100, 200 years from now?

One example, which stunned me, was a young couple in their twenties sitting so close together on an ottoman made for one; they looked like Siamese twins. I watched them at the shoe store while my son Jordan, tried on three pairs of shoes. Both husband and wife, yes they wore wedding rings, were involved in a texting relationship with their i-phones, rather than a conversation. I kept wondering: Are they texting one another instead of speaking? Is this what we call communicating today? How will couples relate when they get older? Perhaps this is a good thing for a relationship; at least they won't be demanding of each other--timewise.

I'm not a huge fan of science fiction movies, but my husband is, so I watch them once in a while. Somehow I justify all this dependence on electronics rather than on real live people, to be necessary to live in the future. I think young kids are so involved with computer games and electronics because that's the future way to relate to others.

Any thoughts?
