The enormous changes in the domain of technology are incredible. When you look back at how things used to be in your grandparents’ time the difference is evident. There are so many advantages given due to the great breakthroughs in information and communication technology. I can write emails to my new friend in Mexico and they receive them in just a few seconds. What a great deal! Another aspect concerns the progress made in medicine. I had pneumonia the other day, an illness people used to die from in former times, and I just took antibiotic and got over it easily.
Maybe the medicine studies even find ways to heal cancer which would be to my great profit since my genes aren’t that good in this way.
However, we also have to face the technology in relation to human life, and exploration of the dangerous implications of human acts of creation which are no longer legends. Scientists ignoring ethic questions are thinking about using individuals they produced as organ donor. All this abasement of morality the technology has enabled honestly bothers me. Euthanasia is just likely to be the next crucial issue. What is the use of all this new technology when we kill all the people who stopped being efficient merely to spare money? This somehow reminds me of “Brave New World”. – I really hope this isn’t going to be true.
On the other hand, a progress in the energy generation would be quite desirable. Maybe scientists find a way so we wouldn’t have to use up our remaining fossil fuels.
To sum up, technology certainly has many great advantages and has become a part of our life can’t imagine living without anymore.
