My theory
    #11338049 - 10/28/09 02:12 PM (8 years, 28 days ago)

We've got so advanced that theres nothing much left to do unless you are an expert with a life times experience behind you in chosen subject and a big injection of cash or you get born into a role and get taught what to do by your parent(s).

I mean things were easy to invent or manufacture 100 years ago.  A person could discover or build something useful on his own in his/her garage.  Now we are just operating machines that do shit for us.

Soon we will be a world of machine operators.

Meh bare in mind I smoked a fat bong before having these thoughts so they probably make no sense.

No I get what you're saying.

I imagine a future where humanity is a race of computer technicians, endlessly maintaining a core of IT that nobody on the planet understands anymore. 

Somebody should write a sci-fi book about it.

Technology advancement is far from complete.

Every time we think we've done it all *KABOOM* we surprise ourselves with a new wave of unimagined inventions.

And even after all the devices and gadgets can't get any better, culture and chaos will always be there to shake things up.

Or maybe the amish are building secret armies to overthrow all the progress we've made.

thought about that a few times too!

knowledge expands so fast, especially with help of the internet.
If you really want to figure out something new, at first you'd have to learn all the stuff humanity already knows.
I think one day this point will be unreachable. Mayb we invent a technique to get information directly into our brain
at a certain age, leaving our childhood.

i dunno :shrug:

Here's one that I've dreamed up and enjoyed as head-candy.

What if ancient humanity was so much more advanced than us, that some civilization had already surpassed us by thousands of years worth of achievement, but had done so with technology that decomposed to dirt and ash long before we could ever write the achievements down onto the pages of history.

Yeah but the point is what it takes to develope new technology now!

Theres no point building an airplane in your back garden like the wright brothers did - you'd have to have a shitload of knowledgeable people and a lot of money to build a better flying machine now.

Its just that the days of creativity are kind of over unless you are prepared to study for 20 years on the existing knowledge on any particular subject THEN you can start pushing boundaries.

Do you believe that mankind has already touched upon every branch of study possible?
Who knows, maybe tomorrow some reclusive mastermind will make a wormhole door-opener out of toothpicks and glue.

technology requires technology to make
what he's saying is that at our current stage of technological development, it is no longer really feasible for one or two people who do not have an arsenal of advanced tech to create anything fundamentally new

There are a lot of things that have not been discovered yet!
Cure for the common cold, cure for cancer and space travel ect...
That is all I can think of right now.

The world we live in is crazy and real shitty but there are a lot of wonderful things about it too.

Still, I think his point is well taken...

I believe he was referring to it being easier for an individual to make a radical new invention a hundred years ago, as opposed to a large research group engaged in group-think...

Nothing quite like the shattered recollection of a man in his midlife crisis who remembers when his parents used to throw him into the dryer with a bottle of milk instead of hiring a babysitter. :crazy2:

Ah, lucky boomer-kids.

All I got was a television and the interwebs before the age of the filter.
