Nanotechnology is advancing. Humans will be able to put small nanobots into our brains in the near future. These nanobots can help us access external computers. So humans can calculate faster or be fed instant information from the web etc.
I guess the rich poor gap will be even wider when that happens. Rich people can then purchase more computing power for their brains and excel even more in schools and workplaces.
Maybe there will also be counterfeit nanobots and some will be implanted wrongly. The problems we will face in the future will be nothing like what we have seen before. Therefore, education systems have to change. We need to teach kids to be problem solvers. For example, we are still teaching them to write on papers when we are typing or googling our day at work. These kids will most probably be typing(now) or “thinking”(future) and words will appear on the screen.
A recent neuro invention scientist on TEDtalk said that she can show the image in a person’s mind on the screen. The image received is not yet HD, however it is only a matter of time.
Its like child-birth, the future is dangerous and exciting at the same time.
Sometimes I think that there’s little pricks along the way when I walk. It’s painful to go forward and also painful to standstill.
Hopefully I will finish this road soon.
Well, Happy New Year everyone!
In a far away village, where goats are seen as more precious than cows, the goats make the rules and the cows follow. Every goat owns some cows and when goats have a bad day or when cows don’t obey fully, the cows get beaten up and hanged upside down as a public spectacle, as a warning to the other cows.
The cows love the goats and they work the fields and clean the house diligently. Sometimes when the goats drive out to the city to buy some stuff, the cows could take a little rest.
If you could ask the cows, they will tell you how much they hope to go out and see the city, however they are not allowed to drive.
Beside a normal hut, a little calf was ordered to clean the barn. A little lamb was bored after school and started throwing pebbles at it, laughing, thinking where to catch some eels later.
Days go by and the little calf grew up understanding how less valuable it is than the goats. It got used to being ordered around and beaten up for mistakes that happened no matter whose fault it is. It is grateful though, because some of the little calves are sold to the butchers, at least it is allowed to stay. It just hope the goats are happy and not get angry so often. It also hope that one day it can get to see the city lights.
THIS STORY IS DEDICATED TO ALL GIRLS IN VILLAGES WHO HAVE NO CHANCE OF ATTENDING SCHOOLS.
A COUNTRY GROWS IN WEALTH WHEN IT VALUES HER GIRLS AS MUCH AS HER BOYS.
Imagine a world where emotions can be seen. When you’re angry, there’ll be a mash of dedicated storm clouds over your head, or when you’re happy, some beautiful rainbows circle you. How’s that for a thought?
Well, it’ll be nice to be surrounded by pretty rainbows. However, if I’m already angry and some personalised lightning cloud follow me around and electrocute me, I’ll be super pissed. Super super pissed.
