Is technology helping us or destroying us?


The textbook definition of Technology is the usage and knowledge of tools, techniques, crafts, systems or methods of organization in order to solve a problem or create an artistic perspective. Imagine how far we have gone, from the Model-T to Modern Day Hybrids, from an Abacus to a Computer! But how much are these goods doing us more than harm? This is the main debate, they say technology is to make our life easier but with such an easier life how long before we end like the world portrayed in the movie WALL-E? We will leave it at the fact that we have the potential for both destruction and creation. As humans we can use technology for two things, we can make our life simple and become immortal and seek higher knowledge or we can become lazy and let them rule us, in the end we will leave it to the fate of humanity and see what path we take in the next 20-40 years.

  1. My wish is that they figure out how to download your thoughts to a computer and live forever as a machine. Then when you're ill you can just move to another body.
