What does it mean to modernise?

In this age of technological advancement and progress, we may call it the modernisation of the human era from small villages to large metropolitan cities.

However, what does it truly mean to modernise?

What is modernisation if one only progress in technology but regress in our culture and society?

What does it mean to have high-tech equipment lying around if our souls are going back to the age of the cavemen?

What is the point of modernisation at all if we, as humans, do not progress in our spirituality and mental health?

Wouldn’t we just be intelligent cavemen? Could we even be called intelligent if our societies are in tatters but the only thing we’re good at is technology?

Hmm…
