Technology is great for stuffing things up, other than that it’s only really useful for getting rid of technology.The proliferation of modern technology has put a good deal of power into the hands of totally unqualified people. This is gradually bringing about the destruction of our environment, the break down of societies, a morbid obsession with health, white hot levels of envy, polarization of differing opinions, the inability to be peaceful sitting quietly, a mind that is always demanding titillation, and intelligence that becomes duller by the day.
We are trapped like the proverbial frog in a pot of water. Throw a frog into hot water and it will immediately jump out, but put a frog in cold water and gradually heat the water and the frog will stay in the water still it dies. The gradual increase of technology blinds each new generation from seeing where it is going. Lifestyles are dependent on modern technology and people don’t want to change their lifestyles, so technology is going to stay.The world doesn’t need industry and it doesn’t need technology. All the necessities are supplied naturally and are renewable and sustainable. Internal combustion engines, electricity, nuclear power, mass communication and unlimited irrelevant knowledge, are not basic ingredients for a happy life.It is comical how heroes have had to deal with different threats.
Years ago all they had to do was find the bad guy and arrest him. Then they had to find and diffuse a massive bomb, but at least it always had a timer counting down seconds while the hero deliberated between the red wire or the blue one. Then it became ‘a device’ that was going to cause havoc. Then it became a top secret file that was going to disrupt the world, then a program that was going to infect a government’s database and defense capability, then a line of code that could cause Armageddon in every society and to every person that so much as glances at a screen. The scale of impending disaster has only increased.
Today the fans are running so fast that when a bit of poop hits them it flies right around the world and everyone gets a face-full.The world is designed to inflict suffering and misery on every living entity. Just take a look around you. Who can claim that they are happy, who can claim that they don’t worry about stuff. This is how it is designed. If you want to look for indications of intelligent design, then understand that the world is designed for suffering and then look and see if there is any suffering. If we can conclude that everyone suffers, then it would seem to be a perfect design, which would indicate a perfect designer.
Pretending that we can avoid suffering and manipulate matter so that we enjoy all the time is less intelligent.Sitting and wondering why the world is designed like this, and then looking for a permanent solution is more intelligent. If someone could come up with a device that does that I’ll happily change my mind about technology.
