Does technology go the right way and will it save or ruin our civilization?
It is believed that the human race exists on earth about 200,000 years, first originating in
Africa, but now they inhabit every continent, with a total population of over 6.5 billion
people as of 2007. In addition, with the humans occupying the planet, natural resources
extinct, pollution increases, technology grows. In todays fast paced world, technological
progress, changes, and advances are happening everyday. Occasionally, the technological
progress, changes, and advances are both good and bad. Furthermore, human race faces
extinction threats and issues, which pulls out a question if we can save the world or not.
The planet Earth is a massive place; one person cannot possibly make a difference.
However, if many people work at making their town safer and healthier the planet as a
whole can become safer and better place to live. Since technology has occupied the world
and our way of life, there is no chance to get rid of it, and make the world more simple.
However, there is a hope for saving ourselves and our planet, if we accept the modern
technological progress, use the most of it, and prevent global destruction.
With the entrance in the 21st century, technology is developing even more rapidly, and
marked progress in almost all fields of science and technology, which has led to massive
improvements to the technology we currently possess. The rate of development in
computers is only one example at which the speed of progress continues forward, leading
to the speculation of a technological spectacle occurring within this century. It can be
foreseen that technological progress is going to be the primary factor driving the
development of human civilization. When it comes to technology, it is thought as
communications, writing systems, telecommunications and mobile phones, animations,
broadcasting, radio, radar, satellites, printing, cinema, TV, and finally internet as most
advanced one. Therefore, technology continues to change our world each and every day.
Every year some new item of technology becomes a part of our everyday life. Technology
has made our lives long lasting, more comfortable, and easier. If we were to go without
some of the technology we have today life would be terrible with out it. In addition, many
of us would not have survived. However, if we let technology to tell us how to act and
think, then we might fall under its control. But, with technology in our lives many positive
benefits have developed. However, with the advantages there are also negative
consequences (disadvantages) that can develop. It is like the old saying, "With every good
there come some bad.
