Imagine if Social Networking was controled by nanotechnology, millions of nanobots monitoring and fixing issues in the social network. Could nanobots be used to censor your posts and comments, will big brother be watching your every word through nanotechnology? How would you know?
Ray Kurzweil predicts that one day in the very near future we will merge with technology, yes, we will be one with our handheld devices, the Internet and so on. Ray wrote a book many years ago called “ The Singularity is Near“, which really talks about nanotechnology prolonging our lives and we human beings becoming machines, that’s the scary version from me. The book is more interesting than that but let’s cut to the quick.
So if we were to be merged with technology, how would our Social Network’s function, if you had a thought, would it be posted on Twitter & Facebook just because you had the thought? That may be overly simplistic but it’s a picture of how it might work.
There is very little being said about this merging of nanotechnology (The New Technology), which I find bothersome and yet energizing. Ray articulates this thoery far better than I ever can, he also has 15 doctorites and what have you, I’m just a guy who loves people first and technology somewhere down the line.
This is just a glimpse of what is yet to come, one of the many reason’s I’m writing and researching for my eBook The New Technology – The End of Mankind. Is it the dawn of the end for mankind, are we empowering machines, nanobots to think and act? Again, overly simplistic, but there needs to be a body that oversees the development and use of The New Technology we’ll know as Nano-technology.
Whether you agree or disagree, our Social activities will change sooner than you think and Virtual Reality is where we will spend most of our time.
Have you ever stopped for a moment and thought back to certain times in your life when you felt you stepped up to another level? A turning point? We all have them. Let’s see, your first step (you probably don’t remember that one) ok, your very first day of school…ever! Turning thirteen was one, maybe your first kiss happened here, then learning how to drive, graduation, becoming of age where you could drink alcohol! And then your early to mid-twenties when you found yourself repeating the wisdom of your parents to someone else and thinking maybe they weren’t as dumb as you thought they were. Each one of those events were turning points where you grew just alittle bit more and before you know it you were wondering what happened.
I was lying in bed tonight thinking about this and just had to get up and start writing, someday I’ll look back at these entries and wonder what I was thinking at the time. I think right now, I’m at a crossroads at 51 and I feel like I’m back in my teen years trying to figure out what I’m going to be when I grow up.
Over the years I did a great many things, played in rock bands, was in radio for almost 15 years, learned about computers and became a technology man. Then one day I heard about a man and nanotechnology, I just had to find out more. I think I have stumbled over another turning point not just in my life but in society.
It would seem to me based on all that I have researched and shared in my eBook, The New Technology – The End of Mankind, there will be a parting of the ways between religion and nano-technology. Technology has not given us what we hoped it would but it has given us what we didn’t expect. As the advancements in technology grow at an exponential rate we too will struggle with our morality, belief’s about how technology will be woven into our very beings.
Virtual Reality will sweep us away and we will be even more desensitized, lost in space so to speak, and we will struggle with what is real and what is not. We will be taken farther and farther away from the relational beings we were created to be, driven indoors, not interacting with each other face-to-face.
As nano-technology becomes main stream, religion will find itself at odds with how that technology is being developed, used and frankly forced upon us, possibly not even knowing you have been subjected to it. It seems ridiculous to think that we wouldn’t have a choice but look around the world, your world and take a close look at how we are failing. Economies, industries and the very jobs we hold to make the big machine run are disappearing or crumbling at our feet. Before you know it the government will own everything and you will be paying rent to the very people you elected. I digress, mixing technology, politics and religion in one blog post is crossing the line!
The world is at turning point, not just financially but with the global impact of technology, it has yet to be realized and begs to wonder will the machines win? Terminator? I wonder how far we will go, will the Matrix come to fruition? Who will control what and who will be able to afford the technologies yet to come?
A turning point on many levels is taking place and it seems to me we don’t hear about much of it because we may not be able to handle what we learn. In my eBook I touch on some of these advances and I alos give you the source so you can look for yourself and draw your own conclusions.
There will come a day in the extreme near future where computers will exceed the speed barrier of the human brain. In the next three years you will hear about it, what then will these machines be able to accomplish? Nano-technology is the turning point of mankind. Read about it in my eBook called The New Technology – The End of Mankind, just click on the product tab above.
Until next time.
The New Technology – The End of Mankind
It doesn’t matter what you believe or what you think you know, what matters is that you become aware. God created us to be relational beings in his image, not machines to live in seclusion separated from each other and him. He gave us the opportunity to have a relationship with him, which is at the very heart of the matter. He also provided a way for us to have awareness, being aware allows you to make sound decisions and sometimes we misunderstand what we are aware of and make not so sound decisions.
I’ve been writing and researching this thing called The New Technology and have become increasingly uncomfortable each and everyday I learn more about it. You can call it fear mongering if you want to but I prefer to think of it as making you aware of the truth and where you should look for it.
If the exponential growth of technology is to continue as it is we will have to find a way to think exponentially, not continue in our linear fashion. Information Technology is growing at 2, 4, 8, 16 and 30 steps at a time and before you know it you are at a billion times. Our brains are doubling in knowledge every year, I’ll bet that’s news to you.
Have you ever thought about these futuristic movies and wondered could it ever happen? Well I have and it is already happening and we never hear about it. OK, we hear about some of the advances being made on CNN but the crux of the problem is trying figure out how to control and monetize it. Net Neutrality is only one small problem compared to where technology is taking us.
You’ve heard about Nano-Technology in very small doses via the news and the progress the scientists at major Universities are making. This progress will intrude on you in ways you can’t possibly imagine and you may not know you have been subjected to it. It will be sold in such a way that you will believe it is the best thing for you to stay healthier and live longer. But is it the best thing for you?
In my ebook I share some of the things you rarely hear about, where we came from, what happened to us when technology really began to evolve. How it impacted our job markets and how will technology change us beyond our wildest imagination. And I am only scratching the surface in the ebook, there is so much out there I can only hope to share a small snippet of my findings.
I ask myself regularly, is this what God had in mind for us? Or is this just the beginning of something far greater?
As taken from the wiki site in bold font:
“The first use of the concepts in ‘nano-technology’ (but predating use of that name) was in “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom,” a talk given by physicist Richard Feynman at an American Physical Society meeting at Caltech on December 29, 1959.”
Two years after I was born there was talk of this new technology, it has however gotten ever so closely to becoming a reality in the 21st century.
“Feynman described a process by which the ability to manipulate individual atoms and molecules might be developed, using one set of precise tools to build and operate another proportionally smaller set, so on down to the needed scale.”
As I have said many times before I am not an expert on the science or development of nanotechnology, I am however, someone who is wondering what the big secret is. Sure you can find articles and government bodies on the development but it’s very low level. The futurists have a clearer picture of how these nanomaterials will be used, and thats the problem.
Will we know when and where not to mention how nanotechnology will be used? It will be used to improve our health, it wmay even be used to track a great many things including you and I. I’m not trying fear monger, I am merely talking about what the possibilities are and might be in the next ten to fifteen years. It may take longer but I have a feeling we are much father along than you and I are aware.
If you would like to read more on nanotechnology start at the wiki site:
I don’t tend to just sit and surf the NET, I do when I’m researching a topic or looking for more info for my eBook. I have been obsessed with Nano-technology work being done today or the lack of information on what is coming down the pipe. I spent some time at Nanowerk.com this morning and found it interesting but somewhat complicated because I’m not a scientist nor do I own a Masters degree. You can tell by how I write 🙂
The Mantra on the site is ” Enjoy exploring the web’s most comprehensive nanotechnology and nanoscience resources “
They also claim to be the #1 Nanotechnology Portal in the USA, there are roughly 1,979 nanoparticles from 137 suppliers. Also, the Nanotechology directory has 3,302 links to labs, associations, networks and companies.
Why do I mention this, my soon to be released eBook called “The New Technology – The End of Mankind” is primarily on this topic and what it will mean to you and your business, not too mention many other interesting points on business and technology in general. The purpose of this Blog is to talk about what very few are talking about, our future and how technology will impact our day-to-day lives.
Again, don’t just take my word for it, do your own reading. I’ll supply many links and resources to make it easy for you as I plod along.
Until next time.
