What effect does technology have on us humans?
Technology has changed the way we as humans live; it changes our understanding of the way things work and changes the way we interact with one another. It was once opposed but is now somewhat welcomed into homes. In the renaissance, technology was opposed, as the church believed that technology would oppose beliefs of god. Well they were right. Technology isn’t just computers or TV’s, its engineering science. And in Science, our goal is to get further and understand everything there is to understand about us, our planet and beyond. However, the way we understand and experience this concept the most is that its just to make our lives much more efficient. When you look around, what do you see? Everywhere you go you see people walking around with cell phones and carrying around laptop cases, other’s just listening to music. But then the companies that build these types of technology want to make them better and more efficient. So they keep releasing new devices that are smaller and faster and mostly more costly. Technology is a concept that will never end. New devices will be released and then refined just about endlessly. Not even if or when we start running out of resources, because we would have recycled parts to build new technology and we will build new technology to possibly refine available resources or even find another planet that has the same resources. Technology now is a concept that we cannot survive without. An average person needs technology, to entertain, to cook, and to do many other daily functions. Let’s face it we need technology to survive. But this is to an extent, for example a computer can be one of man’s best friends, it helps us write documents such as the one you are currently reading, it helps us obtain knowledge through the internet, and it helps us entertain ourselves with games, movies, and music. But the computer can also have side effects, to our behavior, and even to our appearance....
