Due date: TOMORROW! 300 word limit There are optimists who believe that technology will make human immortality possible, even allowing humans to escape the universe once its collapse is inevitable. There are pessimists who believe that technology will lead to weapons that will wipe out human civilization. There is one common opinion shared by all however – that technology will inevitably change our civilization’s future. In the near future, improved technology will revolutionize our civilization. We may find solutions to many problems – the aging of the human body, the upcoming energy crisis, the loss of time through transportation, the resistance that flowing electrons encounter. “Quixotic” ideas such as quantum teleportation and anti-matter driven propulsion may yield tremendous potential. Bioengineering could provide more functions to the human body and increase human potential – merging the biological with the electronic. Civilization may also be no longer restricted to the Earth, as we may be able to establish colonies on other objects of our solar system. We may even discover a new scientific field, opening up new technological possibilities that we cannot comprehend today. Just before Einstein formulated the laws of relativity, who would have thought that time dilation and converting mass into energy were possible? In the far future, technology is imperative if we wish to survive longer than the Earth. While technology has almost destroyed human civilization, it may also provide the only means for the survival of civilization. The Sun will envelope into a red giant, destroying the Earth, and we will need to find a means of escape. Technology will provide us with the only means to escape Earth and to find another habitable solar system, or even establish our own environment. While we cannot violate the laws of physics, technology will enable us to push to the very limits of physics.
