In the digital era, the continuous development of science and technology is driving the continuous changes of human society. At the same time, human existence is facing a series of challenges. Digital technology enables people to develop freely, meet the diversified and multi-level needs of mankind, and promote efficient social governance. But a reverse domestication is also unfolding at the same time: intelligent technology promotes the nihility of individual survival, which leads to the lack of autonomy; network technology induces personal belief crisis, which leads to addiction to virtualization; information technology causes personal privacy anxiety, which leads to the passive situation of individuals. Therefore, in the digital age, we call for emphasizing the coexistence of technology and humanity as the way to solve the problem of human survival in the digital age, which is embodied in reshaping the significance of individual survival with aesthetic education, calling emotional identity with ritual and music culture, casting noble personality with the spirit of struggle, so that human beings can see the rainbow in reality, recognize themselves in the virtual world, and make science and technology glow with the light of humanity in the digital age.
