In Human Technology, Ilchi Lee says that in the name of comfort and security, we have traded our internal sense of judgment for systematized knowledge. We have unknowingly surrendered our authority over matters of great personal importance and increasingly turned to specialists for solutions. This excessive reliance on experts permeates every aspect of our lives.
According to Lee, there is no expert for human experience. Each of us is the specialist of our lives. The ultimate goal of education, institutions, and expertise should be 'self-education.'
Lee defines Human Technology as simple skills individuals can use responsibly to improve life experience without undue dependence on outside sources.
Meditation, breath work, and Asian healing arts such as acupressure and moxibustion, Lee says, are among the health management practices self-reliant individuals can follow. Human Technology also features a distinctive perspective on relationships and a guide readers can use to discover their passionate life purpose. The book includes a practical guide to optimizing the brain, which, Lee says, is our life's master controller.
