Schumann Resonance. CyberPunk talks about technological slavery

Usually, cyberpunk can be defined as "high tech, low life". 
Sometimes I wonder about what can we consider "low life". 
Are we not already living in an environment full of appearances and unrealities? 
Can we say technology has made us happier? 
Rather the opposite.
Technology has made us slaves of illusion makers. 
But, is it possible not to be a tech slave today?
