My machines can help keep someone alive physically, but they do nothing for the soul. No device can take the place of interpersonal relationships, because a machine can neither give nor accept love. It seems to me the most useful device might be a gizmo that constantly reminds the user that they need to be part of a community–because, when it comes to mental, emotional, and spiritual health, we are designed to work best in community. As a pastor, I think it would be great to have a device that reminds the body of Christ that we need to invest in relationships, both within the church and in our larger communities. Doing a better job of loving one another would bring healing to the vast majority of mental health issues in our society, and eliminate their tragic consequences.
