We often will say "it's inevitable, it was bound to happen eventually...", or "That's just the way things are going..."
When the wheel was first invented/discovered, was it just a matter of time before the first transportation device was created?
Here is an excerpt taken from the Technological Determinism Wikipedia page:
"Most interpretations of technological determinism share two general ideas:
that the development of technology itself follows a predictable, traceable path largely beyond cultural or political influence, and that technology n turn has "effects" on societies that are inherent, rather than socially conditioned or produced because that society organizes itself to support and further develop a technology once it has been introduced."
I would like to know which side you are on with this debate. Is there a destination to this all that is inevitable, or will we use technology to serve our purposes?
