What do we trade-off for the comfort of technology?
We all go for it - the quick-fix.
But later, we often find that our ignorance has been exploited for the advantage of someone else .. who's only virtue was to get there first.
Evolution has nothing to say about getting there first .. there's nothing there to code in genes.
So .. what I'm asking is - what are we giving up for comfort?
How much comfort is constructive, and at what point is it exploitive at the benefit of comfort for a few, but at the detriment to our species?
Closing Statement from Mitch SMith
The conversation went quite wide.
I am disappointed that few actually got the point of what advantage is traded off for comfort - and who gets it.
There are even those so vein to think that they are in total control of their lives.
Hey ho - at least we explored it a bit.
